It's hot!!! - Week #62

Konnichiwa minasan!

So I just want to inform you all in case you didn't know that it is REALLY HOT in Japan right now. Just a warning for those of you who are thinking of visiting anytime soon. It's still a beautiful place though. Except for the cockroaches. We have had 2 incidents with cockroaches this week and I don't think I can take much more. Unfortunately, one of those incidents may be on camera. I hope it never reaches Facebook.

So last P-day we went to Kintai Bridge and Iwakuni castle and this P-day we went to a pottery class. I made my own rice bowl. So we are feeling very cultured lately. Don't worry I will send pictures...someday. 

We met with the Sakamotos again this week. We showed them Finding Faith in Christ. So we talked about why Christ died for all of us and his important role in the Plan of Salvation. However, next week there is a holiday called Obon so we won't be able to meet with them for a couple weeks. Bummer!

As for Morioka san, he came to church on Sunday!! Such a miracle! We called him the morning of to make sure he was awake. He kept saying he wanted to sleep, but we told him no. So we were walking from the train station to the church when a car drove past us with someone waving. It was him! He stayed for all 3 hours and I think he liked meeting the elders. He went with them to the 3rd hour of church and of course they had to go deep into priesthood stuff. But Elder Nygaard explained some things to him about the priesthood and his answer was "So what do I do?". I think that's a really good question. One we should always be asking ourselves.  We found out he also read the introduction and the testimonies of the witnesses in the Book of Mormon. Yay! He's super busy with work this next week though, so please keep him in your prayers.

This week has flown by and I feel like it's going to continue to fly by. I don't know where the time goes, but we are trying to use it the best we can. 

Have a great week!
