This week has been insane!
The end of the year rush seems to be even more aparent here in Japan!
Well this is the last email of the year so I should update y'all.
week the Watanabe family asked me to be Santa at their Eikaiwa
Christmas Party. It was great. Elder Norman was pretty much beside
himself with laughter. All the kid's wanted pictures with me and I wore
an ichy fake beird for about 3 hours. It was a blast though. Other than
that Christmas was pretty uneventful here in Matsudo. None of our
friends were baptized and no one invited us over. We had a nice quiet
Christmas here in the apartment just the 5 of us. We did eat Sushi
though. That was a trip. A lot of the new missionaries in the District
don't like sea food at all. We stuffed our faces with eel and octopus
and fish eggs etc. It was great.
I wish there was more to report, but to be honest it was a super quiet
Christmas. New years here however should be great. The mission is
changing things up this year.
on the 31st that's tomorrow we have
Deep Clean Day. Sister Budge loves a clean apartment so we're going to
spend the entire day in our apartments cleaning a years worth of buildup
and grossness. Our apartment is going to be holy ground when we're done
with it! The next day is New Years day. We're going to be spending the
day as a mission studying the Book of Mormon. A few of us in the
Apartment have decided to try to read it from cover to cover in a day.
It'll be some of the most dedicated study I've ever done but I'm
expecting to learn a lot. I'll update you with the results next week!
Well I'm out of time once again. I love you all!
Have a Happy New Year!
I'm excited to hear from all of you in 2014.
What are some of your New Years Resolutions?
