Awkward Turtle (Japan Week54)

May 17, 2015

Yesterday Brother Goto got baptized! He is so awesome. From when I first met him to now, he has changed so much. It was really great because his wife is a member. She was so happy. They got married 10 years ago and since then, she has been hoping for him to be baptized. Now next year, they can get sealed in the temple! The Elders also brought two investigators that have baptism dates. It was really good for them to be able to see. As you can see from the pictures, Brother Goto is really tall. The man he asked to do the baptism was the first councilor in the bishopric. He just so happened to be a tiny 70 year old man. When we filled up the fount, it looked so shallow, we weren’t sure how it was going to work. I was nervous that they would have to preform it more than once but it was right the first time.

One of the Elder’s investigators is Filipino and does speak much Japanese. In Japanese, Ohaiyo means good morning. He said that to one of the members. Then the member said ” are you from the state of Ohio?” It was so funny.

Our Eikaiwa class(English class) in kozouji is so funny. We always teach them funny things. Last week we taught them what awkward turtle is. Now they all use it when someone messes up haha We also all go to eat donuts after class each week. It really good for a dendo tool because we can make good relationships with them.

I love you all!
Love, sister Thompson

Notes From Aubree:

We’re going to the BYU wind symphony on Wednesday 🙂

Today we are going to a mall that is near here.

I have been in Kasugai 3 months, as of the next transfer it will be 4 1/2 months but if I stay until the end it will be 6 months.
