We were supposed to go to Kyoto today, but its raining so we're going next week. at the beginning of my mission, i really wanted to serve there, but now i just want to go to Shikoku. it seems pretty legit. But thats a different story because i still have a lot of time left in Ibaraki and we're keeping busy. Our zone leaders are really pushing this thing were everyone gets 20 lessons a week. it might not seem like a lot, but basically, in order to make it happen, we spend all day going from house to house of members and less-actives and investigators looking for someone who is home and will listen to us. But I guess its fine by me. Its been pretty fun to get to know some of the members better and talk with them about their personal dendo and about what they feel like the ward needs help with. Ibaraki ward is awesome. And the other ward we work with, Takatsuki, is also way good, but yesterday Elder Usui and Elder Shigeta had a baptism in Takatsuki and it was the first convert baptism they had had in 7 years. The investigator is a pretty weird guy, but it was still way good for the ward. And one of our investigators, Ou-san got out of bed to come and see it. He's way cool and we taught him all about Christ's doctrine and a bunch of really good stuff.
Elder Barker is doing well. I'm still struggling to get him to jump into lessons and contacts and stuff more, but i guess i need to be better at making the opportunity. He needs to get speaking or his japanese is going to suffer. But he'll get there as long as i have something to say about it.
So it was a fun week. we worked hard and talked to a lot of people. Its really really hot though.
