Week 10 in Chikushino

Okay, I'm goi to start from the beginning of the week and go on from
there because sometimes it's just easier that way.
Monday- we went shopping and I got some summer clothes, thank heavens
for H&M and for a little store called GU where everything is beautiful
and cheap. Japanese people know how to look cute for not a lot of
money. Way excited about that :) also on Monday, our recent convert
got her first priesthood blessing! She was having a little bit of a
hard time at work, and so we asked her if she wanted one and she said
yes, and had the elders come over. It was so awesome, they left and
she said she felt the spirit so strong, like it washed completely over
her. I love seeing experiences like that happen. It's such a wonderful
Tuesday- we went to the hospital for my companions back. She is still
having a lot of pain and so we ended up going with a member for. Our
ward to help translate for us. It went really well! Japanese people go
to the hospital for literally every little thing so they have a great
system. It went really smooth although it did take quite a while. We
ended up going to a rehabilitation specialist and he kind of fixed her
back. She says it feels a lot better recently. We are going back again
tomorrow so hopefully it will just continue to get better! We also had
a way fun relief society activity that night! Our less active from
Korea taught the relief society how to make Korean food and we all ate
it together afterwards. It was so perfect because she made a lot of
friends and everyone was so nice to her and so grateful for sharing
her recipes.
Wednesday- was pretty normal. We dendo'ed when my companions back
wasn't hurting. We decided to go visit a less active but she said she
was busy, so we ended up talking to her 17 year old son who said he
really wants to come to church, but he has marching band on Sunday's
and can't come. Schools here. Ugh.
Thursday- we just weekly planned and left to meet the STL's for junkai.
Friday- I junkai'ed with Sato Shimai! She was my STL in my last area
too so this was the second time I've been out with her. She's an
amazing missionary, and it was fun to be with a nihonjin all day and
speak Japanese all day. It's fun for me to be able to see how far my
Japanese has come since the last time I junkai'ed with her. We also
ended up bumping into 3 members on the street that day, which never
happens! It was way good.
Saturday- we did a day full of children's English classes and the that
night we had a cookie night, where we made cookies and played games!
We had a couple way fun families come who aren't members, so it was so
awesome and we just had a blast.
Sunday- was such a good day! My companions back felt way good today,
so we were able to dendo all day and we got to talk to so many people!
Although nothing crazy exciting happened, it was a way good day :)
Monday- we had interviews with president Egan which are always fun!
And the we went and ate ramen in Fukuoka.
I have some random pictures of flowers, riding on the train and eating
hamburgers. Enjoy :)

Notice the guy in the back. So good.
What we usually do on the train. Talk to you next week!
