Senior Week

Hey family! Second to last letter! Wow! Still not sure if I completely understand that. But nevertheless here we go. So this week was Elder K's "Senior Week" where I handed over the keys and phone and he became the senior companion and saw how it was. The first day he didn't really take it seriously until I chewed him out and told him he was wasting a good opportunity and my time. Ha. I try not to yell at my comps much so I think it made an impact. He did good. Not anything super crazy today but still a good week I guess. Went to various far places and visited people. He also gave away 2 Book of Mormons which he has been wanting to do since he has come out. Ha. I guess it will all work out. This week as you already know from the pictures we had a baptism in Niigata of the zone leaders investigator. He's a good little member. He was a self-referral after reading a members comics that include church doctrine. It was very well attended. We had every missionary in the zone there which is impressive considering how spread out we all are and that they were able to find investigators willing to go so far to see it. It was a good baptism though. Other than the fact that when we all went to the font to see him get baptized our ward mission leader who was baptizing him just looks in and realizes the drain was not all the way on and that the water had drained down to like 2 inches. Ha. Oh well. So they refilled it. And after that all went well. Then lets see. Yesterday was district priesthood meeting so president B was there and it was pretty good. He is actually way good at Japanese. That was the first time I had seen him speak continual Japanese. Oh and we haven't actually been able to get a hold of the investigator on Sado or really the branch presidency either. He was suppose to watch "The Restoration" DVD with the first counselor yesterday but we don't know if that ended up working. Hopefully this week we can skype. That's an interesting calling that the two of you received. Didn't know that calling existed. So we will just keep working hard this week and next week is probably going to end up being very little actual missionary work so we will see.
