This week was really fun :) 

This week we had Christmas! 

It was so much fun to be able to do Google Hangout!

Being out in the mission field was really interesting.

A couple from the Gokiso ward took us and the Gokiso Elders out for lunch at a Chinese restaurant, it was so good!

Then as a district we went to the busiest part of Nagoya and went caroling on the streets. We had been given cards that were for the new Christmas video the church made. We handed out all of the cards we had! It was a really fun way to do missionary work.

On Friday we went to Gokiso for the first time since I left. For the time being, we are allowed to visit with the investigators that are in Gokiso. It was really weird being back, I got lost haha We eventually got there though haha

On Saturday we went to a year end party with a bunch of former investigators. We all made dinner together and then we played games together and we able to share a message with them.

Yesterday we were able to come back to Gokiso again for a service that we do every week. We got to spent the night at the Gokiso house and it was way fun! The Elders were super nice and put milk in the fridge for us so we could have cereal in the morning.

Its really fun having two companions again. Its a lot different than last time though but I guess that is to be expected. I love getting to be with sister Konno and sister Nakamura, they are such good missionaries and there is so much I can learn from them!

Notes from Aubree:

We stayed the night at the Gokiso apartment last night because had an appointment that was late enough that we couldn’t get back to Takabata in time.

Yeah its nice because we can just bike here, we didn’t today but we probably will next week.

Today we are going back to Takabata and then I am going to get my package from Derek and then we are doing FHE with a bunch of people tonight.

We are going to go to a shrine on 1/1 haha its where everyone goes.
