Things are going great here in Tsukuba! We are having a baptism on Saturday
for J***! He is nine and his dad is inactive and his mom was recently
baptized. He is so cute and so ready! It was kind of dramatic because we
finished all the lessons and he has been ready for a few weeks but the
bishopric wanted his dad to baptize him. No one was really doing anyone about
finding out about his dad doing it so we took some action. We talked to his
mom and she said her husband has been drinking and smoking so he won't be
able to do it. We just set a date with him and tried to consult with the
bishop but he wasn't ever responding so we had to just make it happen.
Finally, yesterday at church we were able to talk to the bishop and he met
with J*** and visited his dad last night to get permission and it's all
gonna work out! He's getting baptized on Saturday woohoo! We also just
started teaching our friend M***. She's from China. She is awesome and
already believes it all. The Chinese are SO prepared! Pray J***'s
baptism goes through and M*** starts progressing!
I'm sorry I don't like writing so my emails are lame but here is what's up in
Easter wasn't even celebrated here. Legit no one said anything at church
about it being Easter. I got a new companion. Sister Day my new companion is awesome!
We are having a lot of fun and getting lots done in Tsukuba! She's
from Georgia. Our investigators are slowing moving along and hopefully
we can see baptisms soon! I love my mission! I'm so happy to be here!
I love you all! Thanks for being the best!
We got transfer calls! Sadly Sister Kelley is leaving... But I'm staying in
Tsukuba! I'm getting a new companion- Day Shimai. I've seen her before but
I've never really met her. I'm glad to stay in Tsukuba
but I'm gonna miss Kelley Shimai! We have lots of potentials and we are so
close to a baptism! J***. He's 9. Please pray for his dad to become active
again! Here are some pictures! Have
