a giant Gundham!!

Everything's fine, we had our p-day moved this week randomly to Tuesday for Temple P-day. This past week, we've almost finalized a baptism to happen, which should be happening this Saturday.  I went to the giant Gundam thing last week, and got a picture in front of it.

just a short note....

This past week nothing really happened.  General Conference was cool though!  I loved that President Uchtdorf brought back the "celestial language" joke.  It was amazing how much of that conference was geared for families.  Also, when I come back in 16 months, I'll be doing even more charity work than when I left.  That refugee talk hit me hard.

Staying in Urayasu!!!

Yeah, transfers was last week, and I have stayed. so long as their is no emergency transfer, this will be the place I stay at the longest. my companion biked from his area to mine. He's from Linden, Utah.

I've been doing fine. not speaking any fluent Japanese, that's still a few months down the road. And nothing really has happened this past week. All in all, pretty normal.
