It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Hear ye, hear ye!

Another week in the books. Whew! Time is going quick! We were able to do a lot of finding this week. Primarily through 10x (The form of housing we do in the Japan Nagoya Mission). We found some potential investigators that said we can come by some other time and share a message. We have also been working with some less-active members, the Hosoe family and Taguchi Shimai. We were able to visit Taguchi Shimai on Saturday with Kato Kyodai and share a message about the Book of Mormon with her. We talked about how the Book of Mormon testifies of the Prophet Joseph Smith and Jesus Christ. We commited her to read the Testimony of the Three Witnesses and think about how she can better apply the Book of Mormon in her life.

We had another FHE with the Mizuno Family and it went well. We also got a referral from them that we are trying to get there help with contacting. Our plan right now is for us to visit them together and invite them to an FHE at the Mizuno's house. We had our Bishop Interaction yesterday and it went really well. We planned when to contact less-active members and how to work with the part-member families we are focusing on right now. We also planned to go on missionary splits this week with Kato Kyodai and Jindo Kaicho's son who just returned from serving in the Kobe mission. We are going to dendo in Ena a lot tomorrow with them. We also planned a BBQ activity in about two weeks and a Halloween party near the end of October. We will work with the Priesthood Executive Commitee more on how to fellowship less-actives, investigators, and potential investigators during those activities.

Yesterday a potential investigator named Ogura-san came to church. After Sacrament Meeting, she said she wants to learn our doctrine and that she would give us a call sometime. We also have her phone number, so we can follow-up with her. Today we have an appointment with Tachiki-san. We weren't able to visit her last week because she was visiting her daughter, but I don't think we'll have trouble meeting with her in the future.

If you couldn't tell from all that, Kato Kyodai is back from America. He doesn't have a job anymore, so he called us up and said, "Let's dendo." So we are going to work with him a lot in the next two months until he leaves on his mission. As I said before, Jindo Kaicho's son got back from his mission. He is awesome. I'm pretty sure he's the Japanese clone of Evan Scott. He is really tall and even talks like him, except with not such a low voice. He said he can only speak a little English, but his English is like perfect and he's fluent. He said he can work with us a lot too, so that's awesome.

We had a Zone Meeting this week, which is just a bit different than Zone Conference. The Zone Leaders present all the training instead of President Baird and the APs. It was way good. We talked about Christlike Attributes in Preach My Gospel. I love studying that section of PMG because there's always a way to improve.

Well that's kind of it for this week. We're working hard, having fun, and seeing miracles. Thanks for the prayers; they help. Love you all.
