I survived another whole week!!! I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks….. The people here keep telling me the days feel like weeks and the weeks feel like days, I understand what they mean now haha.
We are still just studying tons, everyday haha! But I’m learning the language! We finished teaching our first investigator and now we have two more. I’m finally starting to be able to say sentences to them instead of playing charades and looking like a weirdo.
Oh some other big news is that I’m in a trio now! They added a third girl to our district and she’s with me and Wihongi Shimai! Her name is Lofthouse Shimai and she’s from Alaska. She’s half Japanese and is fluent but doesn’t know gospel terms. She was supposed to only stay 12 days with the fast trackers but since she didn’t know gospel terms she’s staying 9 weeks with the rest of us. At first it was weird to get used to just because all of the sudden we had to worry about 3 people in the morning and stuff like that. But we are adjusting and she’s sweet. It is a lot harder to get to class on time in the morning when there’s 3 girls getting ready though…. haha!
We got our iPads on Friday!!! Yay!!!! Technology haha!
Our senpai (the ones who have been here longer than us) are leaving on Monday though and then we will be senpai for the new ones that come in. That’s a really scary thought…. Haha we don’t feel like we are ready to be senpai. But it’ll be ok! haha!
We had a really great devotional last night about moving forward. They talked to us about how we are supposed to learn from our past but not dwell on it. We need to be waking up everyday, putting a smile on our face and moving forward. Don’t worry about things, just trust it’s going to be ok and keep going 🙂
