Tsuyama 11

There are no pictures because Marc's camera is broken and He is waiting to get one in the mail!

This week. Last sunday, a bird pooped on my bike seat. and on monday we played monopoly at our single adults family home evening. the monopoly set at the church is anime themed so its extra exciting. plus i get to learn the japanese words for property and monopoly etc. Tuesday I had another companion exchange with Elder Lee which was fun and i learned a lot. He's a really good missionary and i always pick up some good tricks from working with him. Then Wednesday we did our reading activity and we read that book about that lazy mouse named fredrick who was a poet and he didnt even know it. I forget the title. Thursday, we got haircuts at the hair salon located directly under our apartment. The guy who does them is a previous investigator and is really freaking cool. afterwards we read Ether 12:27 together and i told him he should read Alma 34 because its awesome. Plus I got probably the best haircut I've ever gotten (no offense mom) for a fraction of the price he usually takes! I was happy. Friday, we had a really good district meeting and practiced teaching. Saturday we had a lesson with Sakamoto-san and we taught him the word of wisdom and read out of Mosiah 4. He wouldnt commit to keeping the word of wisdom probably because he doesn't have a real testimony in God so we'll keep working on that. Then this sunday, I fasted a little bit too hard and lost the ability to do just about anything so after church, i was recovering in the apartment. I went to Okayama 3 times this last week, which takes about 3 hours there and back so I actually spent a lot of time on trains. Which is fine because who doesnt like trains? And the rest of our time was pretty much spent knocking on doors. So we're keeping busy.
Soon the Sakura should be blooming. they're apparently a little slow this year, But the Japanese really love their Sakura trees. Everyone just gets a little happier this time of year. I'm excited to see them.
