Week 51 – One year and service!

Hey everyone! How’s everything?

Well, it’s hard to believe, but I’ve officially been a missionary for
over a year! Wooo!!! It’s been a crazy year, but I’m gonna work hard
to make next year even more crazy awesome!

Anyway, this week was way slow, with none of our investigators able to
meet with us, but on Thursday we had our Zone training meeting, which was way
cool! I got to translate for my district leader and his companion, who
are both Japanese, which was way fun! (You can see them toward the
left end of the picture)

It’s way cool to be back in the same zone with two of my favorite elders, Elder Murdock and Elder Mismash.  And overall this is just a really fun zone!

On Saturday we got to hang out with the zone again! We went up to Kumamoto and did some volunteer work helping with the earthquake* cleanup. The damage is still pretty bad farther up north:

*Earthquake cleanup: Kumamoto was hit by several earthquakes in early April, including a foreshock of 6.2 and a mainshock of 7.0.  There was severe structure damage due to collapse and fire, and more than 44,000 people have been evacuated from their homes due to the disaster.

We got to wear the Church’s Helping Hands shirts, and maybe touch some hearts in a different way.

And of course we’re way exhausted now, haha!

I love you all! Have a great week!
