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.

So, it was great seeing pictures! I'm glad that you are all having fun. Sorry that most of my pictures don’t have me in them. Usually I'm the one holding the camera.
Anyway, love you all! Hang in there and keep having fun. Enjoy school! It seems like just last month that you were starting it, but now its almost been a whole year. How weird is that? Well anyway, love you! Good bye!
its very hot lately.
So hello again! This week was pretty interesting. we had zone conference in Okayama on Wednesday, so Tuesday was spent travelling there by bus. When we got there, we stayed in the old Okayama mission home with a bunch of missionaries, and then we went to zone conference the next day. It was pretty nice, but man, bus travel takes ALLL day. It was also the last time that I'll see Hayward choro for a while, because he's going home this transfer. You could say hi to him maybe when he goes home.
Another crazy thing that is going on as we speak is this huge matsuri (festival) that is going on here in Kochi. It’s called Yosakoi, and it started on Friday. I guess that it is one of things that kochi is known for and it’s pretty well known throughout the country. It is soooo loud. They have things like floats from parades in America, but like, the size of a semi-truck or small bus or something, and they just load it up with HUGE speakers and drums and decorations, and play crazy loud music (like, traditional Japanese music styled rock or something. I don’t know how to explain it.) and a ton of people in costumes dance behind it. They are taking up the shotengai (like, malls that are also streets.) that we usually work at. It is sooo crazy. And then a ton of stands that sell food, shaved ice, candy, beer, and what looks like pirated video games or something. Interesting stuff. We are going to go to it and take some pictures as soon as we are done here emailing. That’s funny that you thought the magnet was an eraser at first... I thought the same exact thing! :D Well anyway, let me send some pictures today. Love you! Elder Casper
