What a week. There have been ups, downs, but mostly ups.
So I'm not in a normal companionship, I'm in a trio, which is pretty cool. I'm not saying it's easy all the time, but it's pretty cool. I'm by far the most outspoken and loudest of the three (and I've got the deepest voice, step up son) but I'm working on getting them to speak their minds a little more and getting us to communicate. My district, though, is awesome. We have 12 of us crammed into a tiny classroom with desks and books, and we are really starting to feel like a family. We start everything with a hymn and a prayer (in Japanese of course), and everything is awesome. We have a trio of sisters and a trio of elders, and the rest are companionships (i.e. two) of elders.
My companions are way chill, Perez Choro from Georgia, and Holdaway Choro from Payson Utah. We also have in our district an elder Larsen, Williams, Breeze, Jaynes, Ramsey, and Price (my motorcycle and lifting buddy, with whom I'm making sick gains). We have a sister Candland, Shoenberger, and Savage, but all three of them are super savage with the sass to keep up for being in a classroom with nine elders.
The Spirit here is so strong, and the gift of tongues is real, except for when I asked our new Buddhist "investigator" if she had a picture of God when I meant to ask for a picture of her family. The devotional last night was incredible, and the devotional review with my district was even better, and the Bednar devotional video we watched on Sunday "character of Christ" is the best thing I've ever seen.
I can get email all week long, only write back on Wednesdays.
Love you all,
