Japan week #89

This has been a great week to end a marvelous transfer! We have transfer calls tomorrow, and I'm not excited at all. I don't think elder  skinner and I are going to switch, and I don't want to have another companion! I would love to have him end my mission with me!
We've seen so many dang epic miracles, and we've both grown so much this transfer, it would be the biggest blessing to be able to work to the end with him...
 But! This week was a blast! On Tuesday we had dtm as per usual, but president and sister nakatsuka came! We had interviews with president nakatsuka after dtm, so they came and participated in dtm with us, and it was a blast! It was probably my last interview with president before my LAST one in the mission home before I go home so... It was kinda intense. But not really.  He just asked me how I was, how dendo was, and if I had any questions. And when we were done talking about that he asked me a few questions about the mission and what I think could be done to improve it, and then it was over! It took all of fifteen minutes. Everyone else was taking like, 30+ minutes. And so while I was waiting for everyone else to finish up, I hung out with sister nakatsuka, and we talked about what all Japanese older women talk about! Girls and marriage! It was way fun. :P she was like, you got any one you've got your eyes on? Any plans? And the she talked about marriage and gave me some great  motherly advice. Haha! Gotta love my second dendo mom! Love her to death!
  And then on Friday, I had splits with elder Suzuki. You might remember him from when I was zone leader in atsubetsu. I went on splits with him then, and now he's my dl so we got to go on splits again, and he was super nervous, because I was zl back in the day. But I assured him I was way happy for the opportunity, and we had a GREAT day! Saw a ton of miracles, and got to teach lots of lessons! It was super fun, and we were just goofing off and working hard. And by the end of the day he was saying how badly he wanted to be my companion. It was a great day, and I sure love elder Suzuki! And that's basically it. The rest of the week was awesome, but nothing super special to report! Thanks for all your love and support!

Love, Mike
