Reinforcements 助っ人

Date: 10/3/2016
Place: Shizuoka
Companion: Elder Wilson


Sorry I haven't written in a while! Life has been really crazy! So the highlights of last week is that we had the Mormon Show, Interviews and the ward concert! The Mormon Show is a traveling band of missionaries that President Ishii has put together, and they all came to Hamamatsu and did a performance! As always, it was top notch. We have a lot of great talent in the mission! Interviews went well, even though we took the wrong bus to the Hamamatsu church so we had to walk for a kilometer or two to find the place. The Hamamatsu church looks like a giant block of tofu. 

And then after the concert we had AP exchanges, which was really fun! I love our APs! Then we had the ward concert! A surprising number of people showed up! 11 nonmembers came and 3 of them even performed in the show! We played several hymn arrangements, a Beatles tune, the Shimai did a dance to a Disney song and the members played a few songs as well! Tatsu kun played a rock song on the guitar that was awesome! He got a good response from the audience and I think it made him feel really good. He came to church the next day in a white shirt and slacks, just like he promised. 
Elder Wilson bought him a really nice tie, which Tatsu kun LOVED. It was awesome! 

This week we saw a ton of miracles! (Cue the Prince of Egypt music) 
We sent out a text to every person in the phone asking if they wanted to talk about Jesus. A 19 yr old kid named Hara did! We taught him on Sunday, then again on Wednesday, then on Friday he accepted the commitment to be baptized! We also found three investigators for the Fujieda elders! We have had a lot of success through finding this week and have been doing a lot of work with members. 

We had two exchanges and then had transfer calls! 
We are getting reinforcements! We are becoming a six missionary area! So Elder Wilson and I will stay, as expected. Elder Taylor will be joining us and getting a trainee street outta the MTC! And then Sister Tsujimoto will be getting a trainee (again)as well! 

Sorry a ton of other stuff has happened that I just don't have time to write about! 
Love y'all! 

Elder Johnson
