5th transfer

Well it's the start of a new transfer, and let me say, last transfer
was a good one! This past week was really good as well. We taught 30
people and found some really good people! On Friday, we were at the
lake trying to talk to people at the beautiful sunset. We saw a guy
that didn't look Japanese, so we said hello to him. We started talking
to him and found out that he was from France! He has been traveling
around Japan, and came for a day to Matsue to see the castle, and the
famous sunsets! We were able to talk with him about what we are doing
in Japan and what we believe to be true. After talking to him for a
little while he said that he was going to get some Okonomiyaki (WAY
GOOD JAPANESE FOOD) and he invited us to come eat with him and talk to
him more about the gospel. So we went!! At dinner, we talked to him
about the gospel, and had an amazing time. We told him that there are
missionaries like us in France, and invited him to meet with them! He
said he would love to meet with them when he got home. It was an
awesome little miracle to meet him. But it was definitely harder than
I thought to teach people in English!
  On Saturday, we went over to Izumo, and had a big barbecue with
their branch and some of our members. A lot of people came! Since
Izumo has a lot of Brazilian members, the Brazilians made some really
good food! My companion was in heaven! He loves meat. We also played a
lot of games, and by the end of it I was absolutely exhausted! When
Vui Choro and I left, we had to walk back to the train station , which
is about a 30-45 minute walk. Our train was supposed to leave 20
minutes later, so we started running to get there on time. While we
were running, a car pulled up next to us, and opened the door! It was
some of the Brazilian members from the church! They told us to get in
and they would take us to the train station. I was very grateful to
them, because we actually made it to the train station with 30 seconds
to spare, even with the car ride!
  It made me think a lot about the person I want to be. We are here
on earth to progress! God gave us special gifts and abilities. We need
to use those gifts, and our strengths to help gods children out.
Mosiah 2:17 says "And behold, I tell you these things that ye may
learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of
your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." So the
challenge for you this week is to see who you can serve! Try and help
lift one of gods children! You never know the difference you could
  I think that's about it for this week! Have a safe, and fun week! I
love you all!

(As a side note:  He didn't include this in this email, but in mine he said that where he is, he didn't feel the earthquake at all. And I just got a message from him that both he and Elder Vui will be staying in Matsue another 6 weeks)
