Our Man in Japan
So the Marysville ward boundaries are changing? Let me know how that goes please. I think I`m supposed to notify the Mission Office if my home ward or stake changes.
So this past week has been pretty good. But I don`t have much time to write now so this`ll be short. We took the train over to Tanabe Monday night and spent the night there. The next morning we still had to get up early to catch a train at 6:30 AM. We made it interviews up in Iwade in time. Afterwards we had some Korean Barbeque (Yakiniku) before starting the trip back to Shingu with the Tanabe Elders. That took from 1:44 PM to 7:34 PM.
On Wednesday we were on exchanges with the Tanabe Elders in Shingu. It was pretty good. On Thursday the Tanabe Elders went home after having district meeting in the morning. Elder Slater and Elder Homer made me a happy birthday pancake with sprinkles in it. Elder Slater was going to make a cake for my birthday but halfway through realized we were out of oil. We`re getting oil today. I did eat some Tim Tams which was good.
I got the package on Friday, thanks! Now it`s a question of when to make the pecan pie and harvest loaf. Thanks a lot for those, it`s odd that canned pumpkin and pecans aren`t to be found here. We had a dinner of pancakes with Brother Tsuboi Friday evening, it was pretty nice of him.
On Saturday morning after English Class we talked with a new student about the Bible and Book of Mormon some. When he filled out the new student information sheet he wrote in the box for other comments or anything `I sort`ve want to read the original manuscript of the Bible` we talked with him about how the Bible was written and compiled and what the Book of Mormon is.
Well I`m out of time. Talk to you next week.
Elder Andrew West.
