Well the biggest one was we were able to go on splits with the zone leaders on tuesday, which was an absolute blast. It was so good to work with them, I got to work with Elder Jackson who goes home next week. So it was good to just go hard, and talk with a lot of people. My companion and the other zone leader went out and just converted half of sendai, we got some awesome return appointments. Especially with Onaka san, the big middle! He is a cool 40 year old dude, and we went back on friday to meet him, and he was loving everything so we asked him if he wanted to be baptized he said yes. So we just set a date right there and he wants to be baptized on 12/5 so please pray for Onaka san!!
Paul and Roel are doing well, we found the pamphlets in Tagalog for the lessons on line and were able to give those to them and they were way excited! So now they can better understand what we are teaching them, and apply it more! They are still progressing well to be baptized in 2 weeks! And Wan san, we werent able to meet cause he has been way busy but we will meet with him next week for sure!
We finally met with this perfect person Yoshidome on monday night, and he is so prepared, he is a 20 year old STUD! He loves everything about the teachings and wants to come to church and read from the book of mormon, he is doing this dancing thing in a big festival next week so he has no time but after that we should be able to meet often and get him progressing towards baptism and towards Jesus Christ!
Saturday we got to play ball! SPACE JAM! Paul and Roel came, Paul is a straight hooper, he played on some legit teams in the Philippines apparently so it made sense. It was fun to look like a fool again playing basketball! ;)
on Sunday we had an awesome halloween party that we helped with, it was an awesome opportunity for the community to see the missionaries in a better way. There was tons of young families and we were able to just have fun and to help them see that we are more than just way weird white dudes, we are way weird white dudes who love to have fun!! The parents and kids all loved it and we got to play games and do some `trick or treating` it was the lamest trick or treating ever...and a week early.
I love this work, I have loved looking at Larry A. Lawrences talk `what lack I yet` it was a game changer in conference. And something that has helped me change and grow since my mission started. The Lord has given me all kinds of answers for how I can improve...I am far from where I need to be but I know that I am on the right path if I follow the Lords guidance.
Love you all so much,
