Week 77: NEW YEARS 正月

Happy new years! 明けましておめでとうございます!

New years was pretty fun this week.

We made Mochi one day! and on New Year's Day we woke up early and saw the sun rise during exercise time. It was pretty great. Seeing as we are allllllll the way in the east, we were probably in the first percentage of people to see the sun in 2014. Pretty great.

Since the sisters are now `stake missionaries`, they focus all there efforts on building the stake. (visiting less actives, etc). So, we got all their investigators this week. new investigators! wooo!

So even though we are not the `stake missionaries`, they are supposed to visit 52 members a week in order to visit them all by March. so....... we have to help out. haha. This week we had to finish writing all 660 records, so that took up 2 entire days. Each has name, address, birthday, baptism day, family details, etc. all in Japanese. I think my Japanese handwriting improved 60%. haha.

So now that the records are done, hopefully we'll have some cooler experiences this coming week. ^^ With the craziness of new years over, people will be more willing to meet as well, which is good.

I am excited for what the Lord has in store for us this week. Love the work!

Making mochi!

Soooooooo good. Has sweet bean paste inside.

We had to wear ridiculous aprons (which is why I`m not pictured) but it was wayyyyy fun! haha ^^

Also.... we got Mcdonalds to eat while watching the sunset. Some of the first burgers bought in 2014.

All the people that were up there waiting for the sun. There were more but they gave up. haha.

Almost there.


The main city area was like messed up from new years eve. Its like never this dirty....... but it still wasn`t too dirty. haha.

Made deviled eggs for breakfast one day. sooooo good. ^^
