Wow! Overall one of the best weeks since I've been in Japan. Lots going on, and that's a good thing for missionaries! We went to Nobeoka this past week for a baptism interview (three hour train ride south) and are heading to Kumamoto for zone conference (four hour bus ride west) for a few days. Party!
Notes/Stories from the Week
-God is blessing us so much! This past week each companionship in the district (four companionships in three difference congregations) had at least one investigator come to church. Overall 9 investigators came between the three congregations! Our investigator Ken (see pictures below) came to church and loved it! I translated the first hour for him and Elder Walbeck helped him with the second hour (Sunday school).
-We also had one of our English class investigators come to church for the first time and after a lesson with her, she said she wants to take all the lessons! Our group has only 6 or so active members, but another five investigators came! The group leader and his wife's mission are ending this week, so a new group leader was called. Tons of changes, but it's fun to see the hand of the Lord in all of it. The new group leader left the church for about 30 years and just came back 6 or so months ago. Incredible man who loves to feed the missionaries! He was the one who gave us those meals we have been having after district meeting. We are excited to work with him!
