Week 64 – High School

Morning, ladies and gents! How’s it going?

This was an interesting week. We didn’t really get to meet with any
investigators, but we did some other cool stuff!
First off, we’ve been working with a less active member who’s trying
to quit smoking, and he’s doing really great! Since we’ve met him he’s
already cut down by more than half!
We’ll keep working with him and get him back to church too!

Other than that we went to a lot of high school events!
I don’t think I mentioned, but we live right by a high school, and they held an ‘undoukai‘ which is like a sports day for the whole school. We figured it’d be the best place to talk to a lot of people, and it turned out to be pretty effective!
Then we found out that another high school was doing one too, so we went there as well. Both schools did a lot of dancing, and there was some races and relay events… It was pretty cool!

We also went to a cultural festival at the high school right next to us, which was way cool!
All the classes had different exhibits, but this was probably the coolest–two dioramas from Hayao Miyazaki movies (this one’s from Spirited Away).


We also got to talk to a whole bunch of high schoolers, and most of them had pretty good English!

I swear we talked to guys too, haha!

Anyway, we now have a lot of high school friends, and it’s amazing how much we run into them now. It’s like the whole city knows who we are!

Spiritual thought for this week: Every day and every moment we are making choices that draw us nearer to God or make us His enemy… 気をつけないと… [ki wo tsukenai to… we better be careful…]

That was the week! I hope everyone has a good one!!
Love you all!
