(Konichiwa - Hello)
How is everyone? Probably not as good as me!
|"Heart Attack" with my companion Kempner Shimai|
Yesterday at church I bore my testimony and said "toki doki doki doki, kedo waku waku desu" (sometimes I'm nervous but I'm excited) everyone died laughing. The all said I'm fluent so I know my Japanese is bad. Then we were street contacting and this girl said my trainer and I look so cute and took a picture with us. She invited us to her concert and we got permission to go, yay! I am so glad I practiced kneeling. We were in a lesson and my leg fell asleep. It was so bad but for the first 20 minutes I was set!
We went to get ramen the other day. Oh my goodness it was so much food. I was halfway done but I was so full, I looked up and my trainer had downed hers. I literally rolled over and died. I'm going to get so fat. Everyone here asks me about my hair, EVERYONE. Those weren't exactly funny but hey this place is cool!
I love love love Japan so much! I feel so at place here. Everyone is so nice! When they

The first night 3 different people asked me how old I was and I had no idea what they were saying. Embarrassing.. But I am in a apt with two Japanese Sisters. They are in the area next to ours. So I get to practice my Japanese a lot. It's great. My area is Moiwa! Everyone here wants to learn English so they practice on my constantly. It's sooo helpful! I teach English class tomorrow super excited! I don't know what else to say but how lucky and blessed I am to be here. We have no investigators, no prospects,
nothing. Starting scratch. But I know that I am supposed to be here and that if I do everything I can the Lord will fill in the rest! Every time I have to say something in Japanese the words find their way to my mouth.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful week. Next time I email I will no longer be a teenager!!
I love you all very much!
