I don't have a title (6/12/17)

I didn't know what to write for a title, but a TON! has happened this week and I don't know where to start. We had an awesome Eikaiwa (English class) this week which was massive! We set up at least 18 seats and more had to be set up for people to sit down. It was tons of fun and always passes by so fast! We have two littler kids in the class which actually makes it way more fun! Little kids learn so fast and are so full of energy!  Haha. We also taught another family Eiakaiwa to an investigator family with a bunch of kids. After that we taught the kids and they had tons of deep questions about the scriptures and partially about life after death. It was amazing to see their faces light up as they understood and were like, "this makes so much sense!" And then one of them kinda ripped on Buddhism for not making sense, but we just were like, ahuh, cuz we didn't want to make any comments, especially since we don't really know all that much haha. They also planned a popcorn party for us this Wednesday which is going to be AWESOME! Their littlest kids were also hilarious, maybe because they were beating up the Colombian (Elder Thurston). 

Thursday was a slow day and not a whole lot to talk about there. Friday I had splits with a Nihonjin (native Japanese) named Elder Yamazaki. It was tons of fun! He also likes anime and what not so we had some cool discussions about that, missionary work, life, and gospel stuff. I love how I can always continue to learn new things about the gospel of Jesus Christ and progress as a person. I also learned a ton of cool things about Japan and dancing. 

Saturday was super weird. We had interviews with President Nakatuska which was super awesome, but that wrecked us time wise because splits plus interview travel took forever. Though we did have an awesome lesson with an investigator. We watched "Hope of God's Light", one of my favorite Mormon messages, and helped him put away some fears and really start to learn for himself.

Sunday was also awesome and the Ward is great! We had 2 members invite us over for dinner/lunch this week which was so sweet of them. I am looking forward to the last few days of the transfer. By the next time I mail I may be in a new area so look forward to see what happens!
