December 11

Hello y'all!

    This week was great. We were able to do splits with the zone
leaders in Yonago that ended up being a great learning opportunity for
me. I went with Tanaka choro who is a full blooded Japanese
missionary. It was a great time and we focused a lot on members and
teaching them about member missionary work. We had to help with an
activity that morning at 8am and then we were out until 9:15pm that
night working. It was a full day, and a great time to learn from
Tanaka choro. It felt good to do over 12 hours of good missionary
work. Those are the best days.

    On Tuesday we were also able to go with Brother Baba, the Okayama
Nishi Elders quorum President, and visit a bunch of our members and
talk about missionary work and our plan to work together! It was such
a fun night, and it was fun to work with a member and become a
tripanionship for the night. Working with members is the key in
missionary work. So try and help out the missionaries in your Ward
this week! They need it!!

    On Sunday, we had a full day! We had Elder Aoba from the quorum of
the 70 visit the Okayama nishi Ward. It was a great opportunity to
hear directly from him, as well as being able to talk to him about
missionary work. After church ended, we rain to the train station to
pick up hart choro and his companion so that they could do Hiroyuki's
baptismal interview for us. Hiro did great and is so excited to get
baptized in a few weeks. He is doing so good at remembering what we
teach, and it's been fun to see how much more open with us he has
gotten. I sure love Jessica and hiro's little family. They are the

    After that we went down to the bottom part of our area and met
with a family that we taught a couple transfers back. We had a big
okonomiyaki party, and talked a lot about the church and Christmas! It
was such a fun time, and I hope that they keep on listening to the
message and letting it have the effect on their lives, that it has had
on mine.

  I love this opportunity to serve here in the freezing cold Okayama
city, Japan. It's been such a blessing and I've learned so much
through the hard times, and the good times as well. So many people
here have made an impact on my life and I'm grateful to every one of
them. I am also grateful for everyone at home's love and support. I
love you all!

Lots of love from Okayama city, Japan:
