Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Here in Japan, it was a pretty small affair. We went out to eat ramen for thanksgiving, which was pretty good. It`s the same thing we did last year in Ichinoseki, so it was kind of fun. The ramen can be huge at these places, and I certainly felt like I had a sufficient Thanksgiving feast!
In other news, we taught our investigators a fair amount. We had to teach one of our investigators about the Word of Wisdom, which went pretty well. She said that she`s going to quit smoking! However, that leaves three more to go after that (tea, coffee, and alcohol), so we`ll keep going! All the other people we meet have pretty much been doing the same. We did get a new investigator, though! The zone leaders were on splits here and a woman who had been trying to contact Whitrod Choro came into the church and got a lesson set up with us through the zone leaders. Following that telephone call, she asked the other elders about our church and she got a lesson taught to her! We`ll be seeing her this Thursday, so hopefully she can do well!
I don`t think that there`s too much else crazy that happened. We`re pretty much just doing the same old stuff, which is awesome! Right now, we`re all looking forward to the Christmas Zone Conference as well as the big transfer coming up, where nine new elders will join our mission!
That`s about it! Hopefully I`ll have more interesting stories next week!
