My first week in Japan has been awesome! I am in Shizuoka and my companion is Sister Ward.

I really love this area. We can see mt. Fuji from my area.

We have been having such a good time teaching people. On Sunday we had a baptism! It was so cool! The woman who was baptized is 84 years old so she is super cute! She is so nice 🙂 She speaks kind of different Japanese so its hard to understand her but she is super sweet! We went to her house on Saturday and taught her again.

Yesterday we had a really interesting lesson. We had been talking about how we can be with our families again after this life and that our spirits don’t die. Then the investigator told us that she had a friend with a special gift, and she can see spirits. She goes on to tell us that she tries to call the spirits everyday. This investigator is really Buddhist. It was really interesting. We can tell that she is really looking for truth so we are really excited to teach her more. I really like her, she is really nice. We are going to meet with her again next week.

All of the church members here are so nice! They are really awesome. Every time I meet someone here they like to compare their height to mine because I normally am smaller.

This week had been so cool, I love it here 🙂

Here are a few other things Aubree told us;
We asked for her address, we wanted to look it up on Google and see where she lived but her address is in Kanji!
It has been good, I felt down once but it wasn’t bad. The elders are really nice, they are our Zone Leaders.
I love all the people, they are super nice! Like even just regular people are nicer than people in America haha.
Schmeil Choro is in my Zone. So we only see each other at zone conference and when I go on a split to Hamamatsu.
I have to get off now! I’ll talk to you next week!
I love you!

If you fast forward to 12:45 that is about the point that Aubree is finally on with us, the other is just family talking while we wait for her.
