My new companion is SO cute! Her name is Akahori shimai. She's from Tokyo! And she speaks almost zero English. Which is good, I'm learning so much Japanese. But holy cow! My head almost explodes at the end of everyday haha. She really wants to learn English though.
Her trainer was Japanese so I'm her first English speaking companion. She was way nervous but she told me that she's way relieved that I can speak Japanese haha. She thought we weren't going to be able to communicate. We have only been companions since Thursday but it has been so fun! She told me that this is the first time she's ever had fun on her mission. That was kind of sad to hear, she had a really hard time with her trainer, but I'm so glad that I could help her see that missions are actually fun! Of course we work way hard, but we can have fun as we do it! We've seen a lot of miracles already! It's been so great!
Church yesterday was crazy! There's a Japanese branch and a military branch so we go to church twice. But there was a huge surprise yesterday! Choti choro, the elder from Thailand that I was with in beppu, was there! He finished his mission but his parents came to pick him up and they were visiting his past areas! So I got to meet his parents! It was way cool! It was also so weird going to church in English. I haven't done that since the MTC! Haha so far Sasebo is way awesome! I'm excited to be here! I can't believe it's my last transfer! It doesn't feel real! But I'm ready to give Sasebo all I've got!
