We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and it sounds like the Elders did too.
"Thanksgiving was fun, I got to go onto the base and eat dinner with one of the ward families. We had prime rib roast, and it was WAY good. :) I haven't gotten the package yet, but I think it'll come on Tuesday."
Jody is participating in a "Christmas Around the World" at the elementary school she's working at. So in our email we asked what Christmas was like in Japan.
"Christmas in Japan consists of not much to be honest. Maybe I'll try to get more information this week, but all that I know is that it's not really celebrated here. They eat some kind of little cakes on Christmas eve, but other than that it's just a buying season. >.< I'll try to get all the info I can this week.
Sadly I'm not the District Leader anymore. They changed the districts around and made a third district in the zone so that they would be more manageable, sadly the way they had to rearrange them ended up putting the original two DLs into the same district. So they kept the more experienced one. *shrug* Oh well, maybe next time.
Well anyways, this week has been a lot of fun. I've enjoyed working in Fussa, the members are a lot of fun, and the base members are a lot of fun too. I'm enjoying working here, we're almost up to the Mission Standard for our area. I think it helps a lot to have two wards. :D
I think our focus this next week is going to be on teaching more lessons. We're going to start studying how we can get more lessons during our companionship study.
Sunday we had a lesson with an investigator named A. and she told us she wants to be baptized as soon as she can. We set the date with her for the 9th of December, and we'll probably set up an interview the week before. I'm so excited. :D
I'm super excited to be in Fussa with Elder P., we're getting ready to see a ton of miracles in this area. It's going to be a lot of fun to work for them!"
This post is a week late because we were waiting for photos that the boy never sent. He's been a bit busy and hasn't taken any lately. The brat.
