Greetings and Farewells

March 27:
Hey everyone!!
So this week I said goodbye to Nago, Okinawa, and an awesome three-man
companionship.
After spending Tuesday night and Wednesday morning packing, I had some
extra time so we hit the streets and knocked on doors for the last
time as a threesome!

I’m going to miss working with Elder Baker and Elder Lords. We had a lot
of fun and saw some cool miracles these past few months!
I got picked up Wednesday night by the senior missionary couple to stay the night at the zone leaders’ apartment. One of the zone leaders was going home, so we had a “huge party,” haha!
The next day I followed my travel plans from the paradise island of Okinawa…

To this big blue dot about an hour from Fukuoka! It’s actually still way cold here. ❄️

My new companion, Elder Van Tonder, is way cool too. He’s only been a missionary for six months, but he’s a way hard worker and really loves the people!

And…that’s about it for this week!

I love you all!!

再び台風の日
土曜日。そんなにひどくなかったけど、外出禁止。台風の前はとてもきれいです。

美しければ美しいほど台風はひどいと言うけれど、台風は全然ひどくなかったです。

首里城

琉球王の王座

首里城は琉球(沖縄を含む日本の南部の島々の昔の名前 )を治めた王様のお城。信じられないような王座がある、、、

こんな椅子、なんかほしい。
