So yep, this week is transfer week. We got a call last night from President Zinke, telling Hayward長老 that he was to become the new Assistant to the President, which means he needs to go to Kobe tonight, rather than transfering on the normal day (friday). And then I learned that my new companion that comes on friday is Onizuka長老, a Japanese Elder that was with me in the MTC, and came with me to Japan, so he's my doki. We're both on transfer 4, so not a whole lot of experience between us. He's actually a convert, with a pretty cool conversion story. From what I hear, he was also raised by the Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) so I'll have to see how much of that is true. :P But it looks like my next transfer is going to be all in Japanese. Until we get together on Friday though, my temporary companion is one of my Kohai from the MTC, Hutchings長老. So that means that until Friday, I'm the senior companion. I don't really feel like I'm ready for that, but I guess I dont really have a choice. :P It'll be hard, but Kakogawa is a great place, and I'm excited to stay here for one more transfer.
