Hello family! I hope you all are doing well! Well geez, this transfer just kinda flew by! It's week 5!... so next week p-day is on tuesday! haha. transfer 7! gosh. I'm so old! haha. But it's okay! I probably will not be transferring... but that's what I said last time haha. anyways! This week was pretty good! actually it was fantastic because gosh! We set a baptismal date with Nacchan! Yep! She's getting baptized on Saturday!! We are all SO excited! It's about time! She's only been an investigator for 3 years! haha. So that is way exciting! On Tuesday we had cleaning checks.. ugh that's always annoying. The senior couples come and check our apartments every so often to make sure we aren't being pigs haha. and on Tuesday Horio shimai finally got her bike back!! yay! Way happy! On Wednesday Nacchan had her baptismal interview! she did awesome! Thurday was weekly planning and Eikaiwa (English class)! Thursdays are kind of rough haha. we basically sit at our desks from 12 til 5 and plan for the next week and we go crazy! and then we have dinner and go to eikaiwa. well, when it was time for dinner Horio shimai was like lets make tako yaki! so I started making the batter but we realized we didn't have any eggs, but it was too late... so we were like ehh injanai! (It's okay!) but then we realized we didn't actually have anything to put in the tako yaki... so we put natto in it... gosh, it was a disaster haha. totally gross... and a horrible idea since both of our stomachs have been not so good. haha. but we got a lot of laughs out it! Friday was a fun day! We went to lunch with Okaza shimai, she's this cute 78 year old grandma that just got baptized last month! Her memory is horrible so she writes down everything we say in her lessons... so they are always way long. Well after that Okaza shimai took us to the hospital so I could see a doctor about my tummy troubles haha. He was no help but gave me some medicine to take after I eat... and it's not really helping haha but shoganai!(What can we do?) the show must go on. Then we had dinner at Miyazaki shimais! She's way sweet and made a feast for us! Gosh! then Saturday! that was the best day! The YW had a missionary activity so me and Horio shimai went on splits with the YW! I housed with Arisachan... she's 15 and way awesome! It was so fun! We talked to this one lady about the Book of Mormon and Arisachan told this lady about how she goes to seminary and how much the Book of Mormon has blessed her life and it was absolutely so powerful! So awesome! Then Sunday was church... gosh. we have church at 10 but we never leave until like 4 because of all the meetings and everyone that wants to talk to us about various things haha. but it's great! I love the ward here! and today we are going to Miajima! An island in our area! should be fun! anyways! that was my week! hope you all are doing well! I love you guys! thanks for your prayers!
