That is so cool about Joe going to El Salvador. He will be awesome down there. Let him know that I say hi and congrats to him, he will love serving a mission.
So yeah, Japan is Japan, it's crazy. We eat a lot of rice, I have learned to cook a few things to put on top of rice, it's really not too hard. Tonight we are going to have gyoza (potstickers) so that will be good. The food here is really good, and yes, I am learning to cook somethings, imagine that. The drinks here are amazing, one is pronounced like cow piss, no joke, it tastes sooo good, but I think you know why they don't sell it in the States.
No real sucess this week. We did have one appointment with a big black guy from L.A. that used to be a gang banger as he put it. He overdosed on acid and other drugs like 6 or 7 times, was involved in gang activity and all that, but joined the military and became religious. The discussion went really, really deep, too deep for missionary lessons and I'm afraid he is too tied up in things that really don't matter, we will see how it goes with him.
We also contacted one guy that already had scheduled in his phone to go to church from 10 to 1 on Sunday. He said that he just wanted to go to a christian church, so we invited him and he accepted. We were surprised but it was really cool. We will hopefully see him this Sunday. Hopefully we will have some more lessons.
Yesterday was Zone Conference and we had alot of great talks and other instructions to help us know how to go out and be better missionaries and work hard everyday. The language is tough, but Iam working hard on it. I have no idea what people are saying so I am trying hard to understand.
Today I got my dictionary and got it on sale, so I picked it up at $240, not bad.
Hope everyone is doing well back home. Let me know of anymore mission calls. I am going to send you and email for Trent, so please forward it to him for me. I don't think he ever got my letters. Also I am going to write one for Spencer and Drew if you could forward them to the MTC that would be great. I just got Burns's letter that he wrote 6 weeks ago, so please forward his email as well.
Thanks for all you do, I love you.
