Let's get down to the business first. We were blessed to find a new investigator this week. His name is O Ryoku-san and he is Chinese. He is a college student and we were able to meet with him twice last week. We're going to visit him again today and invite him to pray. We also met his roommate, Ko-san. They are very nice guys. I'm excited to help O Ryoku-san progress in the gospel.
This week we had Zone Conference with Elder Aoyagi. He is a member of the Seventy. It was so neat, because I got to have an interview with him and get to know him on a personal level. We talked about how the Lord gives us strength, which he also mentioned in his talk. It was very instructive and Elder Gillespie and I have already started applying the things we have learned in our companionship and our dendo.
This week Ishida-san came to church! He could only stay for sacrament meeting, but he had a great experience. It has been interesting to see his heart change as he comes to know this gospel. I asked him the other day if he would read a passage in the Book of Mormon on his own and he said "yes" without a hitch. It was so cool! I have really noticed how involving members in his progression has helped him a lot as well.
I had a comp exchange this week with Dunn Choro again. This time we were both in Nakatsugawa. It was good and Dunn Choro gave me a "gift" plaque like President Eyring made for his sons of which he spoke in Priesthood session. It was really cool.
So we made cookies a couple times this week. The first time were chocolate chippers and they turned out okay. The second time, we made peanut butter cookies about the size of an oreo and put chocolate frosting between two of them and son of a gun, they were tasty! We also got our kids English class students a little wired on them, too.
Well this week's is a little short, but it was a good one. We are suiting up for our Halloween party on Friday. Elder Gillespie and I might just switch nametags for our costumes, but I don't know yet. Love you all.
