What a week (November 7, 2010)

It was a pretty good week. Let me tell you. First off I had the opportunity to go to Nagoya this week. It was pretty far. We left a little before 5 Wednesday night and got into Toyota at about 930. It was pretty sweet. Toyota is a pretty nice place. It is pretty big too. The coolest thing is they have a subway. That subway has the same deal as America I think...11 dollars for a footlong. It was too expensive for me but maybe oneday. The cool thing about Toyota is that there is a missionary house there. It is way sweet. It is way old but it is a house so I can't complain. It fit 6 elders in there so it was good. I don't think it was big enough for us to stay for like a week but one night was good.

The next day we went to Zone Conference. Usually it is held closer to us but because Elder Choi came they held it in Nagoya. Elder Choi is pretty cool. I got to say he is funny too. He got up and started speaking to us. He said that eventhough some of us might have a hard time understanding his English he was always right. He was never wrong when he spoke English. He said it was because he speaks Korean English. Kind of like how Australian english is different from American english...Korean english is different from American english...I thought that was funny. He has a black belt in tai kwan do. He said he could kill us with one finger which I find pretty impressive...we all tried to stay on his good side. Another cool fact he was the body guard for the President of Korea for a while. He talked to us about how important it is for us to be good learners. He said if we are to become master teachers we must first be master learners. I thought it was a really good talk. His wife spoke to us too. She was a very nice lady. She talked about how Elder Choi is a nobody but because he worked hard...and worked for the Spirit, the Lord turned him into a somebody. So just like Elder Choi became a somebody, we can become a somebody too.

I was also able to talk to Sister Baird. It seems as if she is finally adjusting. I think it took her a little while to adjust but she is doing good. It is a whole new experience for her.

We were also able to meet with our investigator Suzuki San this week. It went way good. We taught her a lesson about reading and praying everyday. She said she would. We tried to set a baptismal date for her but she doesn't want to yet. We asked her why but she said she did not know enough yet. We said that is ok. We think it would be best for her to set a goal to work towards so that she can feel ready by this time...but that didn't work either...so we are going to keep trying and hope that she soon accepts the invitation to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be Baptized.

The work will continue. I know this Church is true. I am grateful to be a part of its work in the last days.
