Japan week #88

Hey everyone! This has been quite the crazy week. We have seen some crazy cool miracles, and had lots of fun this week.
We had ztm on Friday, and, you guessed it...iPads. Woooo...  I'm not sure how much time I want to invest into it since I have NO time, But whatever... It's ???????! Getting to ztm was a nightmare though. We had to travel to asahikawa which is about a two and a half hour train ride from ebetsu, and no one told us our travel plans, or the money situation or anything, so since I'm the oldest missionary in our area I was nominated to figure it all out. So Thursday was all phone calls and stress figuring out how I was gonna get $300 together, but it worked out and we all made it to asahikawa safely and on time. We stayed in the suehiro elders apartment which was WAY nice! It's one of the nicest apartments in the mission, so that was nice. haha!
   But aside from ztm, we had a GREAT week. We were really blessed, and had some epic miracles. We met our investigator H San on Tuesday, and taught him one of the most intense lessons I've taught in a long. It was literally the make or break it lesson. He was thinking about self dropping, and not seeing us anymore, and we had planned that lesson to invite him to baptism. And so when we invited him, he was way taken back, and got almost...mad at us. It was intense. And at first he said no. That he wouldn't make a baptismal date, and so we talked about it, and about what would be holding him back, and in the end, we made a baptismal date with him for the sixteenth of May!
We're super happy, and so dang excited! He also came to church this week. So he's going very well. We unfortunately can't meet him this week so at sucks but... Not much we can do about it.
   And we went to go teach our college student investigator sato K last night, and had an INCREDIBLE lesson. We did some Book of Mormon follow up, and talked a bit about our purpose in this life. And then we talked about Christ and how we believe in him and have faith in him and then talked about why. Taught the atonement, faith, repentance, baptism, gift of the Holy Ghost, and we invited him to also be baptized, and he said yes! His date is for the Fourth of July, and it's way strong. He really wants to know if this true, and he wants something in his life that has more meaning than what he has right now... He's incredible. Th spirit was so strong, and when I was testifying about receiving my testimony, and about how he can have the same experience, I was just blown away by how strong the spirit was.
This work is so true!!
   And aside from that, we just had lots of dendo and lots of fun times! I can't believe this transfer is already over! Basically...
Just one more week and then transfer calls. And in just five weeks we have received so many blessings in helping this area flourish. 
    Have a great week! I love all of you!!

   Love, Mike
