Week 50: "We housing Tokyo by Skype"

This week has definitely been an interesting one. As usual.

-We found a few more people with interest this week. They seem pretty solid, so I hope that we're able to actually meet up for some future lessons with them.

-It's the last day of the transfer, and as of today we have officially handed out 131 copies of the Book of Mormon within these last six weeks.

-We had a koukan in Nara, and I ended up with Lamb choro again! He's a rock star. It was way fun, and we got to help a man build his house for a few hours.

-On koukan, Lamb choro and I were sitting down about to do personal study at the local rec- center when a man came up to us and asked us who we were. In English. We told him, and then he asked if we'd be willing to come in to the Advanced English-speaking course that he was leading as special guests and introduce ourselves and what we do. So we went and sat in the class for thirty minutes. We then set up a time for the Nara missionaries to come back and introduce the whole class to Jesus Christ in a few weeks. Apparently things like this happen on the regular in Nara.

-On koukan, we were all making dinner to eat with a member at the church. My companion was asked to peel a carrot, but there was no peeler. All he had was a cheese grater, so with a steely eyed determination he set about peeling the carrot with a cheese grater. Needless to say, it did not work. After a minute or two of trying his best, Lamb choro got a knife and told Kawajou choro he'd peel the carrot using the knife. Kawajou choro looked at the carrot in his one hand and the cheese grater in the other. He then looked at Lamb choro, and said "I pass you... this difficult carrot."

-We were housing recently, and we knocked on the house of this nice old lady. She came out but was in the middle of a Skype call with her daughter and grandkid that live in Tokyo. I thought maybe it was a bad time but decided to proceed with the contact anyway. It turned out really nice. Handed out a copy of the Book of Mormon to the grandmother, and then we talked with the daughter through the grandmother's iPad and invited her to meet with missionaries in Tokyo. It was pretty interesting. Kawajou choro said "In Nabari, we housing Tokyo by Skype".

-We had a Farewell lunch provided by the Relief Society for my companion, since he will be returning home this week. It was soooooo good!

The Gospel according to Kawajou:

"Joseph Smith, he really face the difficult moment. Whole life."

"If I forget my knowledge, my life to become broken. My life loose its happy."

Throw back to two of my favorite Kawajou choro quotes of all time:

"Milk good because everyone baby"

"The bicycle will broken my pants"

I think that's about all for this weeks email. I'll probably find out the transfer information tomorrow, so I guess you'll all learn about it next week. Love you all!

God bless.
All the best.
Ttyl, in a bit!

With best regards,

Bayless choro
