It Was Glorious

Hey family and friends this week was awesome I got sun-burnt a lot and currently my nose is peeling. We had two days this week where we were outside a lot and doing things with the ward. It was supper fun but my face and neck aren't saying so.

Monday we went and tried talking to Y about his baptismal date. He is still having problems with smoking, which we were able to set a plan with him on Friday of how he can quit.

On Tuesday we had Juneau with the zone leaders. I went with elder Vance. It was really good! We worked super hard and found some great areas to dendo in. One cool miracle was that we went to go teach I's, our new investigator, and I had written his room number down wrong. But for some reason we felt that we needed to knock on the next door. And it turns out to be him. We taught him a good lesson on prayer and introduced baptism.

Wednesday we had a stake meet and did a bunch of games and races. It was super fun and we were able to build better relationship with the members. Overall Miyazaki branch won! It was a great turn out over all and it was a great to bond with people that weren't members.

Thursday we had some appointments fall through and we just dendoed the rest of the time. We got rained on hard. It's starting to rain a lot again so we are going to go through our shoes really quick.

Friday was a really good day. We were able to still get 2 member present lessons and 2 other lessons. One with Y and one with M, an investigator from Miyakonojo. The shimai asked us to go visit her in the hospital. It went super good. She has this problem with an eternal yawn. But as we were teaching her the yawns went away. Later we had a lesson with K. We showed the first vision  and it went super well. He said he blocked the other religions phone calls. So he can be baptized soon. Then lastly we had a lesson with I. He has no idea about religion and it took him a long time to understand that God is our loving Heavenly Father. But when he did it was glorious.

Saturday we had a bbq and it was fantastic. So many less actives and investigators came. Our friend from Syria came too. He had a great time and now half of the ward knows him pretty well. Things are looking good. But My comp may have broken his finger and we went to the hospital to get it checked out. We were late by two minutes and they people wouldn't take us in. Just nothing felt good for the rest of the day and yesterday too he was in the mood of I don't care I go home in 3 weeks. It's not a good felling to be in but I'm going to try hard to change it or at least help him get through the next 3 weeks.

Sunday he was still kinda of a bad mood. He broke his bike tire spoke and has a rental bike. I have offered to switch him bikes. On good news, S came to church. An amazing meeting. One of the best ones I have been to. It was amazing.

We dendoed the rest of the day and tried to work hard. Things seem slightly strained right now but I'm doing good.
