So you didn't get my email last week? Too bad a lot has happened in these last 2 weeks. Anyways we did end up having a transfer and I got a new comp. My new Comp. is Elder Akina and we were in the same MTC district together. Its pretty fun you hardly ever see a companionship that was together in the MTC (called doki) so being a comp with one of your doki is a ton of fun. We are doing pretty well and having a blast. Elder Buerger also transferred and Elder Murphy moved in. I lived with him my first transfer and so it was fun to see him again. He is a great missionary and I have always looked up to him my entire mission, way fun guy too so its been a blast.

We had that lesson with the referral from the zone leaders and we were able to set up a baptismal date with him for next week but at the moment it doesn't quite look like its going to go through. We can hope but we will see what happens. He got permission from his parents to talk and hear the lessons from us but didn't quite get the permission to be baptized yet so we will see what happens. He is 16 years old and went to church all by himself looked it up on the website and everything so its pretty cool. He has been prepared and its been great teaching him so far. We have taught lesson 1 and 2 and some big commandments so far so no problems yet. We will see what happens.

We have also had a big change with finding people. We have found a bunch of new people but no real solid investigators yet which is a little frustrating sometimes but at least we are setting up appointments. We also had a great zone conference this last week probably the best up until now I think. President was the CEO of Japan Franklin Covey when he was called and has stayed away from really using much of that stuff with us but this time he taught us the first 3 habits of the 7 habits of highly effective people backing it up with scriptures and PMG and it was super awesome. Everyone got really pumped up and is really excited again to get doing missionary work. For sure the best Zone Conference so far in my mission it was really great.

You all watched Conference right? (You better have) It was pretty good this time. I really liked the talk about the bibles history and also the talk about patience that President Uchtdorf gave. They were all great and it was fun to watch. Its kind of like the super bowl for missionaries so we get kind of excited when it comes around I guess.

So last week we went out to Kyoto again because the Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) Were in full bloom. It only happens once a year and who knows what area we will be in next year so we decided to go while we still could. We went to a place called kiyomizudera pretty cool and way old. I will send you some pictures.

It sounds like everyone had fun out at grandma and grandpa's house. I definately miss all those fun times out there. Man you will have to send me a picture of Brad. Three hours at the gym a day? Man thats a ton. I bet it was kind of weird without Jake there for everyone.

Um I think thats everything I can't think of much else that has gone on. this week is pretty open for us so hopefully some good things happen and we get some more solid investigators. I will be sending a bunch of pictures out to you hope you like them.

Love you tons
