bike is fixed, blood washed out, holes sewn up....

Bike wreck was pretty fun.  The bike did cost a third of what I bought it for to fix it, but it's all good now. Just got it out of the shop today, just in time for the first arm of the new typhoon to come on over and make the ways muddy for the new tire to stop looking new.  I did get all the blood to come out of the shirt i was wearing when it happened, and sewed the holes up.  


We are VERY thankful our missionary son was watched over and protected....I'm sure it could have been much worse!  A fellow missionary friend ended up with an ambulance ride (with a very sore foot, cuts and scrapes) after his bike wreck last week on a downhill, slippery road.  Thankfully he's fine now as well.  =D

some pretty cool buildings....oh ya, I wrecked my bike but I'm fine. ;)

This was from last week, sorry I'm late posting it...

For Pday we went to the temple, and then we walked around Shinjuku.  There were some pretty cool buildings. I only got one picture, but it's the Architecture University designed by the students.  

oh ya...and I'm doing fine though,however, i did get into a bit of an accident with the bike. Wish i had a picture of it, but the front wheel got super bent,and the part of the frame that holds the front wheel got bent inward towards the frame.

all is well....

if any of you have wondered about the typhoons in the Tokyo area, Sister Nagano (the Mission President's wife) posted this message this morning.....

Dear Missionaries' parents of The Tokyo Mission,
Recently we had a few typhoons come over the Tokyo Mission's area. However all of the missionaries are safe. This year's summer is unusually hot but your sons and daughters drink enough water and do the work of the Lord diligently. President Nagano and I are so grateful for their service they render. Right now we are having zone conferences and we have opportunities to meet each one of our missionary. They are in the great spirits and big smiling faces. We pray for their health and success continually. Thank you for your support and we love you and appreciate all that you do for our mission.
東京伝道部の宣教師のご家族の皆様へ、
最近、何度か台風が関東エリアに上陸しましたが、全ての宣教師達が皆安全でおりますことをお伝えいたします。今年の夏は皆様もご存知のように異常な暑さですが、皆元気に一生懸命伝道しております。現在、ゾーン大会の最中で、一人、一人の宣教師と会う機会がありますが、それぞれ元気に笑顔で頑張っております。永野会長とともに彼らの健康と成功を引き続きお祈りいたします。ご家族の皆様のサポートに感謝いたします。ありがとうございます。

A little excited, a little nervous...

No, i didn't burn a shirt or cut a tie. All that stuff is too important. Though if i can get through this year's summer in just the long sleeves, and I've done well enough so far, I'll probably sell all the short sleeves to a store around here.

The new picture (in the previous post) was taken in the church. 

Yes, there is a very high chance I train this next transfer. Little excited, little nervous.

1 YEAR MARK!!!! ♡

as for my one year mark, nothing really happening. we have a zone meeting that day, so it looks like just normal meetings and work. oh well.

however, in response to english class, yes, we do it wednesday nights at 7. it's pretty fun. i teach the advanced class, and have a return missionary who came back to japan to learn sitting in and helping me as i slowly forget my english.

Unfortunately i do not have any stories of any kind this past week. just normal work, on feet, talking to people on the street and knocking on doors.
