Well... what's new, what's new...
This is the week of many many Japanese festivals! So, it's been absolutely fabulous opportunities to take our investigators places and talk about the gospel! It's also great for finding people! We found like a ton of new potential investigators this week! Yaaaay!
As always, you can have trusted me to get in a few more bike accidents this week. This week Sister Lane was biking behind me and very sweetly pointed out that the back of my legs are entirely bruised! I'm also getting a ton of scars on the fronts of my shins from how many times I wreck and hit my shins against my bike pedals!
But it's all good... What's life without a few scars here and there!? But one good thing is that my broken hand is finally healed! I can actually work my brakes properly with my good hand, so maybe I'll get in less accidents!
Other than that.... not else happened this week! Since Emiko is baptized, we have a lot more time to work on other people!
I've been trying, as ever to become more Christ-like and less of myself... So far I feel like I'm getting no where, but I'll give myself a break because I mean... no one can become like Jesus Christ in one day! But... I do see little improvements here and there, and sometimes I think, "wow... I've come so far"... but there's still always a long way to go... I just love the Savior so much I just want to be more and more like Him every day...
I hope everyone back home is well!
Roberts shimai! (wow... I just almost forgot how to spell my own name in English...fail.)
#Month 3 in Japan- get ready! Here I come!
All of us at the giant lotus fields!
Maii, her mom (both investigators), and me!
Maii and her mom dressing me in a kimono- we went to the firework festival this week together and we all wore Maii's kimonos!
The cool obi bow Maii tied!
Miserable wooden shoes I had to walk miles in all over the city with half of my foot hanging off!
All of us at Maii's house!

Fukuoka castle- this is where we went to watch the fireworks!
Japanese fireworks! So beautiful. I actually enjoyed them!

Japanese subway- on a NOT busy day
I'm learning to write kanji!
More miserable shoes. I guess if you include these in the count that makes it a 12-piece kimono, with the traditional socks and shoes...
Us being weirdos at the festival =)
|Some of our old lady friends|
Japanese drumming- SO COOL!
|Me biking home in the kimono!|
I gave sister Andaca a haircut last night. She's wearing my rain pancho. Haha...
