January 23, 2017: Traveling!! 🚌🚌

On Tuesday we took a bus to Sendai (1.5 hours) and stayed the night.  Then Wednesday we attended a 5 hour "new missionary meeting" and then did the 1.5 hour bus ride home.  Got off the bus and headed to the church for the eikaiwa.  We wake up the next morning and head back to Sendai for another meeting.  So long story, Elder Davies and I didn't have that much finding time.  However, we were able to get alot of stuff done.

On Friday this week we had another great lesson with a guy named ζ˜Ÿγ•γ‚“ (star in Japanese houshi). He is a great man with a heart of gold.  He told me all about what is going on in America with the president and all the crazy stuff that is going down.  Let's just say that I am glad I am not in America to witness all this.  After hearing all of that we had a discussion about the Book of Mormon and God. The discussion was completely normal but I was feeling so much love for this guy cause of his circumstances.  He lives by himself, all his kids live in different places all over Japan, and years ago his wife passed away.  During the lesson I was understanding him perfect, just like if we were talking in english!!

The gift of tongues is real!  After we finished up he accepted a bap date for the 21st of April.  He needs some encouragement and some actual confidence that he can do it but that is our role!  :)

Well some cool things from this week

-meet a really cool member from Tokyo named brother sasaki lives in Chiba -an investigator finally came to church!!  Lee san is from China and he speaks fluent Chinese and Japanese!

-finally ate tonkatsu again, it's been a while.. too long!

-the branch is really nice and helpful again!

-lastly nobody showed up to our eikaiwa class this week! lol

                that isn't a cool thing just thought i would add it in because you never know what will happen here.

Love you all and have a good week!
