transfers............sister ikegami is leaving.
and i'm not.
visa waiters never pass off areas so I did NOT see that one coming, now I have to remember everyone's names...and possible drive...the malibu...
anyway so this week should be super exciting. half of my heart's leaving with sister ikegami but hopefully my new companion is super awesome and has driving privileges (because we all know how much I love driving). we will find out tomorrow!
this week started off with Japanese Day...President took us all out to sushi down in San Jose (us all meaning the three japanese missionaries and their companions) which was soooo good. and then halfway through the week we finally went to the afghani restaurant we have been dying to check out for 10 weeks now. TOP 5 DISHES OF MY LIFE. Salong's. everyone come to fremont and eat there. So those two meals alone just made my week, it's like nothing else matters for another month or so.
but the missionary work (ahem i'm working, promise) is coming along well, one of our previous investigators is back into town, another has a baptismal date, and another is super uber potential and knows it's all true, so that should be coming along nicely soon. with any luck four of them will be ready for baptism in the next transfer (we'll see but hey, why not dream). we got to teach a lot of less active members this week too, who some of them are really going through hard times and have lots of problems right now, so it's been nice to be able to help them a bit.
funny story of the week: got kicked out of a gated apartment complex for trespassing since the member that we drop by every week didn't know we were coming, but the lady didn't know we had the car in there...so glenmoor had to come rescue us and get the car so she wouldn't see us going back in, because none of the members that lived there answered their phone. we had these little notes on a couple of people in our records that said "evil complex lady"....so now we know what that means!
the best thing about three wards is three halloween parties, I was sister Ikegami for two of them (it really threw people off, all we did was wear each other's clothes and switch nametags) and elder rollins REALLY WANTED US to be stick people with them for glenmoor's so we did that with glowsticks. it was fun though, a lot of people invited their friends and we got some investigators there. with any luck we'll get some potentials!
entao, this week is going to be an adventure, but I'll probably end up with an amazing companion and it'll be so much fun and I'll be heartbroken again when I/she leaves but that's life I guess. I'm making too many friends. goodness. and everyone has to leave. but that's okay, it's worth it. thankfully only one of the elders is leaving, and I still have time to work on my ASL! and one of our investigators wants to come to the asl class so we get to to go this week! I had a five second conversation with elder domingo (the deaf elder) yesterday so that was exciting. so far the most useful sentence has been "don't trust elder le beau, he's a liar."
I'm learning wonderful things.
tchau! ate proxima semana!
