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