So this week was really fun. We got to help out one of the members memorize a speech for her English club and it was super fun. Jones Shimai rapped it to help her remember it better and it was super funny. And hey now we have way good kankei with her so it was way great.
Tuesday we taught a couple of recent converts, and we were very surprised to find that one of them had completely forgotten that the word of wisdom was a thing that we believe. Slightly worrying, but we read D&C 89 together and it ended up being okay. Also there was a worldwide problem with the tablet filters and so none of us could access wifi without our tablets getting wiped. It was a hard day. We also got to do a way good mogi lesson with Wilkin Kyoudai. We determined that we direly need to improve our teaching skills and also have to repent about using the book of mormon more in our teaching. Also we learned some way cool teaching tools so that was fun.
Wednesday we walked six kilometers to Sanda and annoyingly enough there wasn't a soul to be found (probably because it was ridiculously hot). But hey Eikaiwa was fun and we had lots of time to bond so that was good.
Zone conference on Thursday was also really great. We took to heart the counsel to clean out the area book so we've been doing that hardcore and now we've got a whole list of potential people to try and contact now so it's nice to have direction for once. Current favorite "former investigator" is "Broseph #1. " It's horrendous. But soon it will be gorgeous and beautiful and ready for wonderful new investigators.
We taught Nakamura-san and Kunitsu-san this week and they're progressing slowly but surely. Honestly, what they need is the Book of Mormon. Once they start truly reading it, they'll progress much faster.
Also our dendo shunin is changing soon because Uekubo Kyoudai is moving so who knows what's gonna happen there. But because of that we've been told to focus on individual members over the structure of Ward council and stuff at this point because the system takes too long to move and we need to be working effectively. The current idea is to try to make mini activities to do with members and their friends, so we're putting together a list of all the old referrals in the area book that never got followed up with. We're really excited. Hopefully this week will see much better results.

5.) it was a hard day. We lost access to wifi and all dendo related to it. I had a breakdown. Almond milk, oreos, and Milo were necessary
