One of the members mom here is really good at knitting. We call her ishikawa obaachan. She is soooo cute! We went to her house this week
to learn how to knit. She would take our needles and do a bit for us, set it in our lap and say “hai!” Which means yes. That was the extent
of the lesson haha she just kept telling us that we were ไธ‹ๆ‰‹or unskilled, but it was true haha.

Saturday was super busy for us! We had a lesson with our investigators and ate lunch with them, we had temakizushi. You take seaweed and put rice and fish on it, then you dip it in soy sauce. It was super good ๐Ÿ™‚ it was kind of sad though because it was our last lesson. We had been teaching them English and about church but we can only do that for 6 weeks. We took them Tim Tams and hot chocolate and did a Tim Tam Slam with them ๐Ÿ™‚ after the lesson we were super full but we promised the elders we would go to dinner with them.

For the 4th of July, we went out with the elders to eat Yakiniku. Basically you have a grill in the middle of the table and you cook lots and lots of meat. It was all you can eat, and the elders eat a lot! It was really good but sooooo expensive! We spent about 3700ๅ†† each!

After that, we had a lesson with a less active back at kachigawa station. The only problem was that we were about a 30 minute walk from the station and we would never make in time. Also, it was raining, a lot. The elders were super nice and let us borrow their bikes and rain coats. We gave them our umbrellas and they walked to the station. Thankfully we were able to make it to the appointment ๐Ÿ™‚

We also got the fruits basket from the ward yesterday. The ward here is soooo generous! We got so much chocolate from them! I don’t think I’ll ever finish it!

Notes From Aubree:

btw I was just talking to the bishop and since you guys are coming here, he wants you and daddy to give a five minute testimony. You guys will speak in English and I will translate.
