This has been the best week of my life! I know that sounds crazy but it has been amazing. I've never felt so much love from people I barely knew before now.
Funny Highlights: We were visiting a lady in our ward the other day and I've been trying to add in on conversations now so here she is talking about how she doesn't have money to do this and that and I look at her and say 'awesome' really loud and energetic, got a super weird look back... Whoops.
|Kimono. Ignore my face. I didn't know how to handle that situation.|
On Saturday we had a clothing exchange at the ward. Sister Kempner and I walked in and saw two kimonos chillin' and we wanted them! No one took them so after a little bit we just took them. Then all these Japanese women started flocking around me dressing me in this kimono. It was so funny. I felt so awkward.
So fun fact. Everyone and I mean everyone stares at you if your gaejin (foreign). The other day I was going on splits. So here I am sitting on a train minding my own business and this school comes past for a field trip. This one little girl spots me and just stops in her tracks. Then she calls all her girlfriends over and points right at me they all start giggling and just stare straight at me. It was great. So I waved and they giggled harder. I love it. Every little kid just is so surprised to see me. All the ladies in the ward say I look like a French doll. I don't know what dolls they've seen but I've never seen one with a fro. It's so great though I get to start a lot of conversations with really random people! Japan is my favorite!

|Heart Attack from everyone|
I love you all so much! Don't worry so much about today or tomorrow because families are forever and that will exceed any today or tomorrow!
(I Love You)
P.S. Families are forever and I have a new companion on the other side of the veil. I love you very much! Keep your heads up. I'll send some scriptures in the mail! xoxoxo
|We ate at this family's house! Everything in English and they made us tacos! He's the new 1st councilor in the ward!|
