Hey guys!

Alright, we get into month #3 now! How's everybody doing? We talk a
lot about Disneyland at night and I've realized that I wish to go to
the land where dreams come true. So we started our new transfer this
week and it's been a hard week. Since we had our baptism 3 weeks ago,
our investigators have slowly gotten weaker and weaker. I think it may
be because we worked so hard to get Sato baptized and we made him a 

priority over other investigators. This past week, we taught 2
lessons. Two! The rest of the time we were finding all day. This past
week felt so long. Hopefully we do better this week.

We got a new investigator from China and she's way golden. Her name is
Jennifer and It's kind of funny how we met her. About a month and a
half ago me and Elder Pace wanted to take a picture with some other
guys and we asked this random girl on the street to take the picture.
That random girl turned out to be Jennifer! We handed her an Eikaiwa
flyer and she walked off. Then about a month ago, she came to Eikaiwa
and said she wanted to learn about Eternal Families so we started
teaching her. She already has a baptism date for June 21st!

On Sunday and Saturday we had Stake Conference and President Welch
spoke at it. It was pretty good. Elder Maynes from the 70 came and
spoke as well. He told a funny story about how him and Gordon B
Hinckley went to dedicate a temple. They had 4 dedicatory events for
both Saturday and Sunday. president Hinckley was around 92. After the
dedications, they flew a plane back to Salt Lake and Elder Maynes sat
in front of President Hinckley. He fell asleep but out of no where he
was awakened by several loud thumps. He turned behind him to see what
made that noise and was all like "Who would make loud thumping noises
and wake the president up?" So he turned around and saw President
Hinckley, exercising. He had a band around his thigh and had it
connected to his arm so he was raising his legs every time he raised
his arm. The thumping noise was made because his foot would drop and
hit the ground.

Haha so Tom Brady was cheating! Oh well, I'm still glad the patriots
beat the Seahawks though... Maybe the Broncos can beat the patriots
this year... 

 I think being late is now the thing that annoys me the most. The ZL's here
 are always late haha.

So I've been thinking, I really want to get the summer over with and
get into winter! Kyoto's too hot. I need cold.. Right now,
I'm still a beanchan. I'm a 2nd transfer missionary now and am not at
the bottom of the totem pole! Just right next to the bottom. I get to
kill Elder Pace this transfer though. 

I hope you guys have a good week too! Sounds like mom was bust this
past couple weeks! You guys finally went to lagoon! Haha cannibal
failed it's safety test? That's scary!
Love you guys lots and miss you!
