I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write!
Last week I was transfered. My new area is Sakado. It's a tiny area in Saitama-ken really close to my old area Okegawa.
I'd send you pictures of the apartment, but I somehow managed to lose my camera.
The apartment is crazy small. It was small when there were two people
living here, it's even smaller now that there are four people living
here. The area itself however is great! Sakado has been struggling in
the past but that time of struggle is at an end. With eight missionaries
and a ward that's super fired up we're sure to see success. Bishop
Tetuanui (from Tahiti) has a tenacious plan that unites the ward in
fasting and prayer for 28 days starting two days ago. He put his name
was on the fasting calendar every other day and the members, seeing
that he was fasting a lot more than his fair share volunteered to help
out. Sakado is united in fasting and prayer and we're going to see the
baptism that they've been waiting for for close to 3 years now. We're
planning on a baptism on the 23rd of February at 1:00 pm. We don't know
who it will be yet, but there are a lot of people that have a lot of
My room mates are also a lot of fun. Elder Chen and I are having a
blast. Yesterday we gave our zone training. The theme of the Training
was preparing and sanctifying ourselves so that we can recieve the
Lord's blessings. We talked alot about Changing our Natures and what the
difference is between changing our behaviors and changing our natures.
It was a great meeting. Tomorrow we have the opportunity to hear from
Elder Whiting of the Seventy who is touring our mission. That's also
happening in Sakado. We're going to be busy.
On the fun side of things, We had a pizza party a little while ago
and had an absolute blast! It's too bad Elder Healy wasn't there to be
with his 3 favorite people (^_^) (I'd add pictures but the computer
won't work ごめん!)
