Hiroshima (East) - Countdown, 39 weeks!


This was a very CRAZY week. 

Monday - We had a good P-day. Pretty average. Went to Costco, ate pizza, went home, napped. Pretty chill. We did have a lesson with the Komaru family, which went way well. They accept everything, and are excited for baptism. 

Tuesday - We had a junkai (splits) in Hamada, which is 3 hours north by bus. I got to be with an elder who is from our MTC district, so that was cool. It is a small town up in Hamada, and the hail and snow hurt a little bit as we rode bikes, but we saw some crazy cool miracles and set up a return appointment with tons of people. 

Wednesday - Went and met up with a guy who went to school in Utah up at the U. He played soccer while he was there and had met tons on Mormons. He was fluent in English and a way chill guy, but as of right now doesn't seem to interested in the message. 

Thursday - Another lesson with the Komaru family. We finished up the lessons, and focused on temples. They are excited to go to the temple in a year, and we will be making that a goal soon. 

Friday - Went to Fukuoka to hear from Elder Yamashita (area seventy). He talked a lot about being happy, studying the language harder, and having more faith. (I think he was trying to tell me something haha)

Saturday -  We had a baptism. The KOMARUS GOT BAPTIZED AND IT WAS AWESOME. I will send pictures of that later. 
At night we had a talent show. Which us elders did a dance, and... Well I don't want to talk about that too much. It was bad. 

Sunday - The Komaru family got confirmed, and are doing very well. They are going to help this ward like crazy. We are really going to work with the ward on getting him the priesthood, getting them callings, temple, and so forth. 

As of right now, we don't have too many other investigators, so this week we will be getting to do lots of dendo :)

Hiroshima (East) - Countdown, 40 weeks!

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone had a good week. We did as well. Time goes by too fast.
Nothing much has changed here.
The Koma Family is still on track to get baptized this Saturday.
They passed their interview, no problem, We are meeting with them twice
this week, and are doing way good. I am so grateful for the
opportunity I have to work with the Koma Family, and be able to
teach them the gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful for missionary
work, and the joy I get as I do it.
This week we found a lot of new investigators, so I will fill you in on that
next week!

Love you guys
Elder Davies

Hiroshima (East) - Countdown, 41 weeks!

Hiroshima (East) - Countdown, 42 weeks!!

Hello everyone!  
Sorry I've been really busy lately and haven't been
able to spend very much time on it.
Anyways, since last week, we had transfers. I got a new missionary
named Elder Baxter. He is from Payson, and a way good kid. He really
wants to do the right thing, and has a lot to learn.

I will teach him lots :).
Honestly, lately I have been overly tired, the bags under my eyes are
digging in. I'm looking worn :)
But other than that things have been going really well. Our zone is
doing awesome, we have been seeing tons of miracles, and are improving
a lot. The Koma's are doing really well. We have a lesson tonight and are
teaching them the Law of Tithing. Little nervous, but it should be
okay. They are coming church this Sunday and will meet the bishop.
Their date is on 2/20th now, and are progressing well towards it.
Love you
