Week 5 - It's gonna be a short week, gomen!

The weather has been a little crazy recently - for the past few days every one has been saying that a huge typhoon was coming today, and that it would be next to impossible to go anywhere, which would have been a big problem because we really need to do some grocery shopping today - and this morning it was pouring rain. But by the time we finished our morning study it was completely blue skies! The typhoon was completly gone! We literally see miracles everyday - its the best!
Lets see... highlights of the week... This week has been a week of lots of kids! On monday night we taught a lesson to a members daughter that is turning eight this month and is going to be baptized - they have the cutest family it was so fun - when we left all three of the little girls were hugging our legs and begging us not to leave - they are 7, 5, and 3. It was pretty cute :)
Then on Wednesday we were on our way to visit an investigator when we ran into the daughters of a former investigator. They were SO Excited to see us, and followed us around for about 30 minutes, and introduced us to their friends who were on their way home from school, who then invited us over to see their cat. So off we went to go see this cat! We spent about 30 minutes talking with them and answering their questions - they pulled out everything in our bags and asked about it - they are about 9 and 11 years old. Kids are so open and loving and curious, it was so neat to be around them - there really is something so innocent about children it was refreshing to be so openly accepted and loved instead of hearing the usual "kekko desu". Hopefully we will be able to go back and teach their family - they have 6 kids! Oh and then on Sunday we gave a five minute presentation on the Ten Commandments in primary. I love little kids - but I am also grateful that our usual investigators have a bit more focus and don't usually run around all over the place during our lessons :)
Sorry that this email is so short today, and very scatterbrained - we still have to go do our shopping so I've gotta wrap it up, but I love you all, I pray for you everyday! I know that this gospel is true, and that there is no better way to find peace and joy that is true and lasting. I'm so grateful that I have the chance to share it here in Hokkaido in Obihiro!!
Until next week!
