Working Hard, Small Miracles

Hello Everybody!

Today was another Wonderful and Relaxing P-Day for Elder Tauchi and I.
I know from these e-mails all you think we do is play but i promise we do plenty of Dendo.

This week was a really hard week for us honestly. We haven't been able to make appointments with any of our investigators and we pretty much did housing and streeting all week long. It's not that I don't like finding. I just am not very good at it. Thinking on your toes in Japanese is a whole other world from teaching. Teaching I'm good at. Teaching is awesome. Anyway it was a pretty slow boring week and by Sunday night we were pretty run down. (Sundays we have two 3 hour blocks of church, ward missionary council and prayermeeting not to mention all of the Recent Converts and Investigators we try to squeeze in the Last Second.) But it wasn't all bad. Wednesday we got a new Investigator. Her name is Wakanaちゃん and she's way cool. Apparently her mom is a return missionary and hasn't been to church since Wakanaちゃんs been alive. She came to Eikaiwa and then to the Big Country Dance/Dinner we had at the church for the English Ward. That was AWESOME! and we're going to see her again this week. Then Sunday night we we're thinking about what we would do today for p-day and we decided we go see the Gundam in Daiba and then check out some of the stores there. We we're thinking of who we could invite and we thought of an investigator we thought had dropped us, Reuben. We decided to call him one last time. Turns out he'd lost his phone and run out of minutes when he was on his ski trip this past week and hadn't gotten them back until that same day. He still wants to meet us and although he couldn't come to Daiba with us today we're excited! That means this week we have one or two more lessons that we didn't have before! YOSH!!
Here's a bunch of pictures from the Dance and and Today.

Now all of you who heard me talking about Gundam but didn't understand know. IT'S SO COOL!! When we went shopping we found a machine for Purikura. Are we not the coolest missionaries ever?
I hope you all have a great week and endeavor to more fully feel the spirit in your lives.
Lots of love from 洗足池,
-Elder Howard

Translation:  A purikura machine is a photo booth, hence the pictures with flowers and accessories.  Photo booths are obviously much cooler in Japan.
