We had a fun exciting week. On Thursday, I went to the mission home to pick up my new companion. His name is Elder Taggart. He only spent nine weeks in the MTC. He is from Edgewood. He went to Puyallup High School. He`s a very fun Elder and he`s working very hard. I think we`ll have a great twelve weeks together. It`s fun talking about things we both know like the fair, and telling everyone in Japan that we`re both from Seattle and we`ve actually seen Ichiro play. Everyone`s really amazed about that.
We've been teaching an investigator named Okumura Kazuya for a little while and just yesterday, he got baptized. We first met him when his friend brought him to conference on the eighth. He accepted everything that we taught right away, except for some of the commandments which he had heard about from a member and was already following before we taught them. He quit smoking and drinking immediately, the day he heard about the Word of Wisdom. He`s 25 years old and works at a place close to the church building.
Today, we are planning on going to Kyoto seeing some stuff with Elder Gardner and his family. It should be pretty fun. I don`t know any information about Mother`s Day yet. Preparation Day might be on a day other than Monday next week. Today is a holiday.
I have to get going now. I`ll write again next week. Bye!
