 Blog:Pear Picking

So this week was kind of crazy to say the least. And I still feel like
I am all over the place but here it goes. So on Tuesday we had the
most wonderful P-day. After I emailed we went pear picking in this
giant grove. It was crazy, the pears were the size of baby heads!!!!!!
And oh, the mosquitoes, they ate us up!!! But we got a couple of giant
pears, so that was fun! Then she took us to all these miscellaneous
places. Like she took us to meet her friend who was a tofu skin shop
owner. We had soy milk frozen ice cream, actually pretty good. Then we
went to her friends who own  Buddhist temple and we went inside and
got to play the drums, and talk about the book of Mormon, and eat some
expensive oranges. Then we went and ate sushi with her and she took us
to thrift shop. Basically we just ran around town and met all of her
friends that own all these random shops. It was SO COOL! So ya, now I
have the strongest testimony ever of member missionary work. If
everyone did it like this, then the work would take off beyond our
ability to keep up. It would be the best ever. So basically after that
Healey shimai was packing and stuff to go to.... (drum roll) Fujisaki,
my bean area!!! It was way cool! So then we said goodbye's and she
And I got a new missionary from West Valley Utah! Her name is sister
Bair, and she is SO amazing!!!!! She is way nice and loves to read,
and is braving all this new stuff like a champion. It was great! Her
first day was like a regular first day. Then I feel like Satan took
over our week, haha! So on Friday we went to go find a bike for her
and walked all the way down to this store which I really like, and we
found her an awesome bike, but... they couldn't put a basket on it.
And we were there for like 4 hours while they tried to figure it all
out. It was terrible! We ended up not figuring it out anyways. Then we
came to the church because we thought we were meeting with a recent
convert, but then we get a phone call that one of the sisters got in a
bike accident and they were at home and a member who is a nurse was
coming over. So we go home and we see her open wound and they said she
had to go to the hospital to get stitches. So they left for that, but
they came home that night and all was good. Then our investigator
cancelled on us. Then the next day when we had to go visit a less
active we found out my bike wasn't really working so basically I had
to ride my bike with the breaks on the whole time. Then on Sunday my
new missionary got sick. But through all this she handled it like a
champ, and that is a miracle in and of itself.
Also because one sister got stitches and my comp was sick we went on
splits and found this really amazing girl who said she would come next
Sunday, and we get to teach one of the recent converts about
endowments, so we are way excited!!!! Love this work, and if I have
learned anything this week is that no matter what we face we can
always come out smiling at the end. And that is why I love this gospel
SO much!!!!!!! We also got to meet with that lady who invited us into
her house that one time and she took us to a rose garden place, after
they cut all the roses down for winter, haha! Then we got to share
some scriptures with her which was nice :)
Anyways love you all!!!!!!!!!! Have a fantastic week, and remember
there is always a light at the end of the tunnel it still lights the
whole tunnel!!!
