Zero time!!

I am sorry...I have no time!

We had a crazy day. Involving driving to this sweet rope bridge, which I will send pictures of next week...with a member family that I love dearly. And then stopping lots of other cool places. AND THEN we got a flat tire! It felt like a family trip. All parts included - flat tire and all. 

It has been a great week! It is interesting having 6 missionaries in Tokushima...and having 4 Elders is a totally different vibe. But, everyone is really excited. The members are doing everything they can to keep the new elders busy, which is impressive. We have a ward full of great member missionaries! Because opening a new area is probably the hardest thing wouldn't know anyone. Or how to get around. Pray for all those missionaries opening areas. :) 

Basically, it was a great week! I ate lots of Japanese food. Talked to lots of Japanese people. Learned new Japanese words. Testified of Jesus Christ. Loved being a missionary. Said lots of prayers. Talked a lot with Payne Shimai. OH SLASH, LAST PREPARATION DAY WE RAN TO AN INVESTIGATORS HOUSE! And it was the best thing ever. She was so surprised. And I miss running. 

All in the life of a missionary. I love this work. I love Japan. It is starting to cool down, and autumn is coming. And I am in the most beautiful place on the planet for it!

I love you all!
