I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some sould to repentance; and this is my joy.

Hello Hello! Well, its been another great week here in Japan! I know Dad thinks that I don't have enough time to write a long email because of the stuff that you send me, but its just because I don't have very much time in general. That being said, I'm going to write you a good letter this week, but it might be cut short because of time. So this next coming week, I'm going to Kobe for a trainer/trainee meeting. It'll be cool to see all of my friends again, and also see my kohai who came to Japan just this past week or so. That reminds me! Because of the age change, the time spent in the MTC was shortened, right? Well, in order to align themselves with the MTCs around the world, every mission around the world had a 4 week transfer, instead of the regular six. So pretty much, everyone whose time wasn't shortened in the MTC has their mission shortened by 2 weeks. So I'm already on my second transfer! and I'll end up coming home two weeks early, probably. Its like I left for my mission on the 14th of November, instead of the 28th. So yeah, last week I was able to purchase my electronic dictionary. It wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be, and it is really useful! I took pictures, so maybe I'll send those to you. Also after that, we went and ate at KFC in the shotengai by our apartment. It wasn't very good, but they gave us water bottles with our meal because of some Dragon Ball Z promotion that they have. So now I have a Dragon Ball Z water bottle. :P
