Hey everyone I'm still alive! まだ生きてますよ〜!

Date: Aug 24, 2015
Area: Nonami
Companion: Elder Mahoney 

Life as a missionary is really hard but really fulfilling.
I love it here.
There's little curry shop everywhere!
But the best part is the ward members here are amazing.
We have a little branch out here but there's enough of us to have a
Now if we could just get some more smiling faces to attend on Sunday.
We currently have two investigators.
To you people at the training center, the food here is incredible!
Just survive long enough to get out here and it will all be worth!
Practice door approaches and street contacting until you are smooth.
We've been doing a lot of streeting and door knocking.

HOLY CRAZY GIANT SPIDER!! My comp caught it in a bowl with a piece of paper 
and threw it outside. There were little kids present and they LOVED IT. 
Seriously I've never seen a spider that big before! It was pretty fast too. 
We just found it in the church before sacrament meeting.

Japanese Children have SO MUCH ENERGY! 日本の子ども達はめっちゃ元気!

First off, Japanese children have SO MUCH ENERGY


Japan is awesome!
 It's extremely humid here and I'm dying of heat. My companion is a 6'
 4" Australian and he is super cool! His name is elder Mahoney.
 He convinced me to try Vegemite and I almost died. DONT VEGEMITE. It
 tastes like salt


I haven't seen much of our district yet because we are so spread out
 and I just got here. It's just me and Mahoney Choro talking to people
 and knocking on doors. Pretty everyone out here knows about us or
 Jesus Christ and don't want anything to do with either. That's cool.
 We'll just keep looking and we'll find someone eventually. 

We are
 teaching this Philipino guy in English (we bring materials and Book of
 Mormon in Tagalog) and he is super cool! He's progressing very well
 and we love him.
 I went to church yesterday and gave a quick message in Japanese. Then
 we knocked doors under a shinkansen track (Japanese bullet train). We
 saw so many!
 That was cool.

Anyway I kinda miss sleeping in a bed but the food here is AWESOME!
 The members are great and they feed us quite often.
 I'm running out of email time.

I love you all!
