July 25, 2011

Woah!! The 24th of July!! I totally forgot about that!! Wow. I cant believe how fast time is flying by. So right now I'm sitting in my apartment emailing. Its 5:30 in the morning. Yesterday all us missionaries gathered at the Matsudo church, and we had training from 9 until 5. We received computers, and our DVD players. I know Ive probably been talking alot about this, but we are the first missionaries in the history of the Church to receive computers. Were way excited to use it, but were all nervous about it as well. We just hope it doesn't get ruined by some stupid missionaries.
So on Sunday we had some extra time, so we went and visited some less actives. They were way cool! This one guy is from the Phillipines. When he saw us, he just told us, I'm not active. We said we know, and that is why we're here. Haha. The next was the Take family. They were way cool. There was the parents, and 3 kids. We dont understand why they were less active though. They were so cool. This Saturday we have the natsu matsuri for the ward. Its the summer festival. So we invited both of them to that, and it seemed like they would! The Phillipine guy also has a son who is a member. He is priesthood age, and we really want to work with him. This ward needs more priesthood holders, so he would be very much needed.
This week is going to be a fun week! On Sunday me and my companion were asked to go to the Kiryu Stake Oyama Ward. There is still no missionaries in that ward, so me and my companion are going there to speak in Sacrament meeting, and do a little referal seeking activity. That ward has over 30 ward missionaries, and no missionaries. So the ward missionaries have no idea what to do. Hopefully we can get some things going for when the missionaries come back to the area!! Sunday is also a year anniversary for Jun. In Kiryu last year on 7/31 he was baptized. Now hes in this Takasaki ward, and not active. Sakurai Kyodai and shimai are coming here on Sunday so were going to go try and visit him. Hopefully we can try and get him and his mom back to church. It seems hard. Some members have called her before, and she always says shes driving or at work, then never answers the phone again. Really Really sad. When we saw Jun the other day, he seemed not as happy as usual. im sure he remembers church and the love he felt here. We just need to get him to Church a few times so he can feel that.
Thanks everyone for your love and prayers. I love you all!!
