back to the temple!! (now that he's near Tokyo again)

Yep, got to go to the temple today, and met my trainer again there, to his surprise.  I also was able to get the package sent by Elder Grosh's mum, please tell him to thank his mum for me.  (Elder Grosh is serving in our ward here in San Antonio and we've taken things to him and fed him and his companion.  Sister Grosh wanted to do something nice for Elder Abercrombie in return for our taking care of her son here.)

I have not been able to get a new (Japanese CTR) ring, the place seems to just be closed.  However, I was able to buy a book for Japanese sign language.  Woah, I forgot that after Kathryn graduates, I'm only a few months from being back.  That makes it all look way shorter, yikes!

One of our investigators wants to get baptized, he just doesn't have his parents support.  After another year, he'll be able to do it himself.

Yeah, things are going well here.

week 2 in Urayasu

New area has Disneyland. Finding alot more foreigners than the other areas before. New comp is a district leader, so I'm his extra pair of shoulders for stress. I'm also incredibly small next to him. I don't have a picture of it, but there is a picture on Facebook. It's also way warmer than the last area, and the ward here is great. We actually just saw a baptism, and there was one two weeks before I got here. A good majority of the members can speak English and enjoy having fun with that. One of them is the YM leader and called us to ask us about an English translation. As such, Live Hard has become a thing here. As for anything I need, I don't think so. I might be sending a package over in a few weeks, not sure, but yeah, just be ready for that. It will actually be a package for me. Just so there's still room in my suitcases. I know i'm only a quarter of my way through, but yeah.
