I hope that the US is warm. But from the Emails I guess its sub-zero. Not much has happened this week in Japan. We had a Zone conference on Thursday where we spent the whole day trying to figure out how to be better missionaries.
The coolest thing that happened this week was that Elder Ford and I met a man in a park while walking around that wanted us to teach him English because he wanted to tell off all the American missionaries that were coming to Japan trying to convert him. How Ironic.
Elder Ford and I have been kicking our butts into gear. Were trying our absolute hardest to find the prepared as well as how to make our Japanese better!
Fussa is good. Emo and Dilan both have fallen off the face of the map. Elder Ford and I cant locate them at all. Its rather annoying. We've gone to their house every night and left a note one morning telling them that they're missed.
We met with a man who was a Missionary in Fussa, Japan over 40 years ago. He was really nice and bought us Dinner. He said that he works for a company that takes him to Japan every so often.
The next night we spent a couple of hours with one of the youngmen from the Base who is getting ready to go on a mission. He enjoyed walking around and talking to people with him, however he was lost when we started talking to people. I imagine that this is what I was like when I first got to the MTC/Japan.
Other than that this week has been rather boring. Just a lot of hitting the streets and trying to talk to people. This week Elder Ford and I are going to see many Miracles!
