05/17/2015 | Flowers on Preparation Day


Hey everybody. Sorry I didn't email last week. I got to say hi to my family, so that took most of my time. Still love everyone. I promise. Don't have a ton of time this week, so I'll tell about what we did for P-Day today, and my first Golden Investigator.

First my Kin Jin (that means golden investigator). On Tuesday, we went and tried to visit some PI's that are never home, and per usual they weren't home. We did some housing, and still weren't seeing anything. We were getting a little disappointed, and we started to head home, and we were passing an apartment that we had housed some of before hand, and I was like "hey let's go do some more dendo there" we still had some time so we were like. Meh ok. And of course the first house we ping, is a Kin Jin. I ping, and she said to hold on a second. We waited a good 2 minutes, and we're about to leave, but she opened the door, and asked us to come in. Her genkan (entry way) was dirty, and so she had to clean it for us. The rest of her house was really dirty still, so she couldn't let us see it. But
we talked to her, and she said that recently she had been having lots of worries, and that she has been praying to God a lot. She hates a religion here called Sokagakai, because it feels bad, and when she
reads the bible she gets a good feeling. She also tried her best to tell us as much of this as possible in English. She wanted to make sure we understand everything. Her name is 八尻 (hachijiri). 
We are visiting her tomorrow. Way excited for it. God has prepared this person for us, and led us to find her. I am very grateful for that and know that he is helping us.

So I was going to talk about today's p-day, but I'm out of time. So I'll send pictures instead. We went to this famous place in Higashimokoto, and we went with our Zone leaders who came up for splits. It's this really cool place called 芝桜公園. (Shibazakura koen) it was very pretty, and we got to go with a bunch of Chinese people that our Zone leaders met on the Train. Enjoy the pics.

Lots of love
