Futenma, Okinawa - Week 23 (Total, week 42)

So I am now in Okinawa, in a place called Futenma. It's way awesome down here. We have 2 wards, a Military branch, and a Japanese branch. Our area has 4 elders and 2 sisters. Things have been crazy down here. We got to the apartment, and it was disgusting. We spent the whole first day cleaning, and got permission to clean during studies the second day. We threw out about 12 bags of garbage, and got rid of tons of old futons. 
After that, we opened up the area book, and it turns out that it was just as bad as the apartment. 

Okinawa is still very hot, and probably will be for another couple of months. My new companions name is Elder Barker. He is from California. He plays baseball for BYU. He is legit. His mom is Japanese, but he can't speak very much. It brings back a lot of memories of the times that I used to struggle as a new missionary. 

Things have just been crazy lately. We are finally getting the apartment organized, as well as the area book. This area is awesome though, I'm loving it so far! We don't have really any investigators, so we will be starting from scratch, but things will be way good. 

Have a good week!
