Things are quite different here in Kariya. I have only met like three investigators. But one of them is getting baptized this Sunday! It's so cool. And Elder Kishi makes me teach most of the lessons to her so I actually feel like a big part of this one. Her name is Saya and she is about 18. Her mom is less active and the rest of her family are like non existent members. But through her baptism, hopefully the rest of the family will come back to church!
Yes I got the package. That was for two people? Gosh, there's enough in there to feed like six. I'm going on an exchange Thursday (Thanksgiving). I don't know where or with who. I have a good possibility of going to Kasugai! Which would be awesome. I don't know what's going on yet though. Thursday is President Baird's birthday actually. He said proselyte in the morning and have a nice meal in the afternoon and be thankful for what you have. So that will be fun.
So this week, Elder Kishi has decided to put carrots in many random spots that I frequently go to. So that's fun seeing those all over the place haha. I also wrestle at least one of the other elders every night. It's so funny. The Korean is so weak its funny. I lose respect every day for Koreans because of him. He always uses my loofa! And my body wash! I know it's the rule 'what's yours is mine' on the mission, but that's personal! And he doesn't ask before he uses anything!
Oh my goodness, these elders can really cook. It's amazing! We`ve had so much I don't even know the names of. They are making me learn to cook so I can do all of it too. I started making a recipe book too haha.
So, I met the coolest ward member yesterday. His name is Sefa. He's a returned missionary, Tongan. Yes, I was rejoicing that I got to see a Polynesian. He is probably 6'4" and about 280 pounds of pure muscles. By far the biggest guy I have EVER seen. No joke. I can't explain it. He loves the missionaries. He plays professional rugby here which is so tight. He said he would play with us sometime. He also is so rich he just gives us mons ($100) every time he sees us. I guess they are called Sefa Mons. Haha.
Things are different. I get really frustrated sometimes with Elder Kishi. He likes to hang out at people's houses for too long. I have been praying hard this week to know what to do! I love you all and am so thankful for you all! Have fun in the dirty AZ!
You are so dumb, for realz,
