Now to the spiritual side of the week, I have decided to just bless you with my letter I sent to Kaicho (Mission President) since I am as always short on time and it would be faster to copy and paste. The 1 computer in Saijo for us 8 missionaries proves to make an effective p-day quite difficult. P-days are not really p-days (preparation days) and usually are just stressful and I'd rather just dendo for 2 years and leave it at that. Apparently that's not how the white handbook has it.
Thank you for all that you do kaicho. I am excited to work and grow with Elder Walton. I have yet to pass off any of the medium lessons (because of the isogashii, however I will improve this week) of the lesson mastery, yet we are teaching 30 to 45 minute lessons with Takamatsu everyday. Needless to say, the gift of tongues is a beautiful gift that I am indeed thankful for! We will continue to give all we have to Saijo.
Mom, that is way cool that you and Olivia are jointing and doing so much missionary work! How old is Olivia's friend?
Elder Dolbin went ZL (Zone Leader) in Kumamoto. He actually traded with Elder Trane, the one who will die here at the end of the transfer. He was way sad to go and told me he misses me but I will see him soon someday :)
No, I didn't find the camera but I had a less active track it down for me. BOOYAHHH! That's how missionary work is down baby. Loose your things, involve the less actives, help them to feel needed and loved, then tell them you are too busy and can only meet them at church. That's what I'm talking aboouuut!
Backpacks are actually not allowed in mission rules apparently, so I only use it when I am traveling.
