Week 2: To Family

Hello kazoku!

I promise the MTC is great and I'm doing awesome!  Thank you mom for the package (I laughed really hard when you sent me ONE SOCK, asking if I had a match)!  Also everyone loved your macaroons that you sent me.

Our bedrooms have 6 bunkbeds, but we only have 4 shimaitachi (sisters) in a room right now.  I love the other sisters, Erickson Shimai and Pierre Shimai!  Erickson Shimai is everything I want to be in a missionary: kind, loving, humble, and great at speaking Japanese!  We have a lot of fun together :D
Pierre Shimai is from Brazil so she has to learn English and THEN Japanese! She's doing a lot better but it's been a struggle.

Thank you everyone for your love and prayers!  I've managed to not have any dairy products and my stomach has been amazing.  My companion is truly awesome! She's from Texas and we have different personalities but we're growing closer and we teach together really well!

Please pray for Pierre Shimai to receive Igen no tamamono (the gift of tongues) - I need it too, but not as much as her :)
I love you all so much!!! I miss you but I know that this is where I'm supposed to be <3
