Overall, fantastic week! I'm still an uncle, I'm still in Japan, and I found out today I'll be staying will Elder Sekine for another transfer (six week). Thus, I can't complain. Life is good!
Notes/Stories from the Week
-Lots of great parts of the week:
1) My companion got sick this past week, so yesterday went on splits with the others elders in the apartment while Elder Sekine stayed with the missionary couple. The highlight was a lesson at night with a Japanese college student trying to figure out the purpose of life. As the lesson started, two Germans came up the stairs and started to talk with us! They were actually staying at his place for free! It's called coach surfing and sounds like quite the deal. Erika, one of the Germans, had actually been to a Mormon party before and knew the basics of our beliefs! Way cool person.
Anyways, we taught what we call the Plan of Salvation (where we came from, why we are here, and after life where we are going). He loved it and accepted the invitation to be baptized next month! We are excited to continue to work with him!
2) Ken! He is from Ghana and is quite the stud. Fluent in both English and Chinese! Very strong faith in Christ and loved the Book of Mormon when we introduced it to him.
3) Another free meat party after district meeting (see pictures).
4) Had an investigator who hated the idea of prayer growing up (grew up Buddhist), pray for the first time at the end of a lesson. Small miracle to some, but huge miracle for us!
