Futenma, Okinawa - 1/2 way there! (Total, week 52)
Well it's officially been a year since I entered the MTC. It has been incredibly fast. The life before the mission all seems like a dream. I feel like I have lived here my whole life. Time just gets faster and faster though. Starting to get a little scary. Loving it out here though.
This week we have gone to the hospital 4 times for MRI/checkups and stuff. This Friday my companion is going to get surgery. He has to stay in the hospital for 3 days, but luckily we are going to be doing splits so he can have a Japanese companion with him.
We also did splits with the other companionship in our apartment. Elder Welch and Hansen. It went really well. I got to go with Hansen. He is way good. Japanese isn't amazing, but he is way happy to be out here and a very Christlike kid.
A guy in out Military ward, Tamale, is from Hawaii. He took us out this week. He is amazing. He served his mission in Ogden, Utah mission. And he loved it. He told us a bunch of tips he did as a missionary, and he saw tons of success.
Motoki is still doing well. We have been meeting with him 1-2 times every week, and then he comes to church every week with him brother and his brother's family.
Taiki has been a bit sketch. He hasn't been answering our calls, or anything. Hopefully this week we can get in contact with him.
We had to refer Silvio over to the Okinawa elders. He moved this past Saturday to their area sadly. He was still doing very good. Having a lot of spiritual experiences and such. I wish we could have kept teaching him.
This week has been crazy busy. I decided to remake the member book, organize the less active book, and contact everyone in our area book, or atleast try. Elder Barker and I have been working hard to get it all done, hopefully we can finish it by the end of this transfer.
Anyways. Things have been going wonderful here in Futenma.
