Welcome to another week in Inuyama.
Monday night talks: We met a rapper, and a young salesman who sells
copy machines, and a reeeally fat Nagoya man.
Thursday we made plans and got seriously pumped, ready to go, but then
everything changed when the Fire nation attacked. (we were asked to
move a fridge). I couldn't even remember my scout knots for the
service, how pathetic. Anyone got some good ones for tying down a
fridge upright in the bed of a farmer's truck?
Well, at least we got Domino's out of it. Oh, yeah!
And then we had to wonder around Kani City visiting old pins and
OYMing on foot. It actually turned out well--no complaints; we covered
a lot of ground and met even more cool people. Lots of foreigners. I
don't have hardly any pamphlets left, including all my foreign ones.
Hey, look at that! I'm staying! But the next transfer is sure looking
Elder Ribeiro!! It's Portuguese so you pronounce that all funny--like
He-bay-e-row. Super smart, super energetic, and another companion one
transfer above me.
Elder McColm is becoming a Zone Leader over in ...Yokkaichi! No way!!
Neither of the Japanese sisters transferred! That was a big surprise
Some random white couple, the James, showed up to our church on
Sunday. The husband apparently was a missionary here back in 1990 when
Inuyama was still a branch. Only the really old Branch Pres remembered
him, haha. But the lady was eccentric. She gave us peanut butter candy
galore. Took our pictures and sent them all to our moms and a
Missionary Moms Facebook Page or some other.
They have a son serving in California or something and couldn't stop talking about it. Made
for an interesting service; the man still passed off some broken
Japanese, so they managed to get by.
Then the Sister's had a baptism!
Sister Nishida Got BAPTISED,,!!! Brother Endo performed the baptism.
Good all around. She was a self referral who started showing up in
late January. Wonderful.
