Hello Mina San!
I am in Tsukuba and it's awesome! There's a huge university and lots of scientists. Kinda random. It's a pretty new city so not a lot of older people live here. Which means there are a lot more open people. It's awesome. Right now we have 1 baptismal date. J**. He's a nine year old Philippino. His dad is inactive and his mom is a recent convert. He is supposed to get baptized on April 6 so pray that goes through! We still need to confirm everything with the bishop and stuff. But he's so cute and so ready. He has so much faith. Then there's A***. She lived in Germany for a year or so and she talks about how it opened her eyes to see more than just the Japanese traditions and things. She also always says it's not a coincidence we met and that she lives here at this time. She is way in tune to the spirit. It's way cool. We're working with her but it's going a little slow for now. She has two little girls. Way cute family who all speak English perfect. Then there's the K** family. The mom meets us for English class but we also teach gospel too and she's slowly coming around. Last night she said she won't become Christian but she still wants us to teach her. She was way into the lesson. They just need some time. Then we have four Indian investigators. They are pretty cool and I'm now set on traveling to India. Yoga in India. (K*** mom is teaching us yoga next week. #holler) but we are finding and teaching and seeing miracles and it's way awesome to see! I love being a missionary! It's an amazing experience!

I love you all and I'm thankful for your prayers and support!

Love, デイビス姉妹
The Sakura are coming!

So my new comp is from Washington and her name is Kelley Shimai. She is way cool and sweet. She is on transfer 5 and I am on 8.  So the area is nice. It's pretty new and big and there are lots of people out and about. There's a huge university and everything is really pretty. There's also a huuuuge mall and I'm definitely going shopping after this. And I'm also getting a haircut for the first time since I left on my mission. Oops. We have a few investigators and it's been way fun teaching them. There is one family the K***. They are so cool. They travel to India and Thailand to do yoga and see the world and I want to be them. Ha the dad has long hair and he's kinda a hippie but we taught them the restoration yesterday and they were way into it. I love Tsukuba! Things are good! Here's some pictures!

Hello everyone! Things are good here in Tsukuba Japan! I got here on Thursday and got my new companion Sister Kelley. It was way sad leaving Togane! I love them so much. I miss it still. But this area has some good stuff going on and it's more city than my last area. Yay for more people out and about! We ride bikes a ton here. I rode 14+ miles on Friday. Be impressed. It wasn't too bad. Until the next day. Tsukuba is way pretty though and it has the biggest university in the mission so that's exciting. School starts end of march so all the new students are moving in soon and I'm excited to find! That's about it for now! Love you all! Have a good week!

Nothing new... Just finding, finding, finding. BUT I just got transferred to a new area Tsukuba! I hear it's on fire right now so I'm excited to actually get in the work. White washing (opening an area) is way hard. All of our investigators have pretty much dropped us slash are not consistent so it's been rough. The ward here is so awesome though. I love them so much. Cherry blossoms are coming out slowly. Cherry blossom festivals are at the end of March. I'm excited!
