Week 94- 7/17/2017 I Live In a Concrete Oven

Hello Everybody it's me again. As you may be assuming from my email
title, yes Tokyo is hot in the summer. Who knew?!
Everything is concrete so it just heats up more and more throughout
the day. Then you add humidity and the fact I'm pretty much always
exercising 24/7 into the I tire and BOOM laundry loads double in size.
You'd think being a coastal city would give us a good breeze. I'm
pretty much always melting, but at least I get to be a missionary!

This week besides being hot was pretty cool.
On Monday we balled and got haircuts. Pretty basic stuff.
Tuesday was filled with helping at the disability center and passing
out fliers down in Shin-Urayasu. I got shaved ice out of the service
opportunity, which was very well needed. The heats been getting up
into 30~33 degrees Celsius lately, which with 90% percent humidity is
quite the foe.
Wednesday was Member visits and Eikaiwa. Yet again a hot day. I don't
know why I'm makin sure to mention the heat so much. Maybe to just
drive my point home.
Thursday was weekly planning. We got a referral while we were
discussing how to get more referrals so that was awesome. He's a way
cool guy but I'll talk about him later. Then we went outside and
walked around to visit members. Not as hot because night time is nice.
Friday was pretty fun. We went and played soccer at the local college
and we were making pretty good friends with these guys but then the
security came and kicked us out. They made sure to escort us so we
don't accidentally baptize somebody against their will on the way. It
was pretty frustrating. Just trying to spread English.
Saturday was Zone Conference and mission school. You probably saw
pictures but I'll attach some. I taught a guitar class. Everybody had
a good time and they want it to continue so that's pretty cool! Our
referral came and he's so prepared. He kept asking me to teach him
about Christ in the middle of class. I asked him how he was and he
replied "I'm good because I'm encircled in the arms of Christ's love
and mercy." Pretty cool guy. His name is Keiichi
Sunday was full of meetings. You don't need to know about those.

Anyways thanks for tuning in! Here's some pictures and have a good week!

Met one of my sons at Zone Conference!

Zone Conference. Tokyo Zones

 I had to wear this stuff for a service project we did. We
cleaned a beach. You can see my nasty farmers tan!
