It's Been Said Many Times, Many Ways... (December 28, 2015)
メリークリスマス！To you:) The first half of the week was spent in Christmas festivities and LA visits, caroling, handing out treats and Christmas stockijgs, and celebrating the birth of Christ. The second half was spent in bed with a fever, so not a ton of interesting news, so we'll just touch on some highlights via photos:
Missionaries of Sendai and Sendai South Zone! We got all fourteen sisters in the two southern zones to sing for the special musical number, we threw Silent Night and Joy to the World together. Unfortunately, no one recorded it, so no evidence, but it was glorious.
Sister I took us on a multi-hour less-active member visit tour on Christmas Eve. The former Bishop lived close, so we popped in and said hey to him and his adorable daughter:) Hjs English is pretty good, he likes to say, "Sister Luke. May the force and the Spirit be with you."
Kills me every time.
Yesterday out of the blue he gave Sister K and I Star Wars breath mints with Luke's face on the package. #killinit
This is how I teach English.
Okay, only sometimes.
Kids are hard to catch, man.
I almost forgot. Tanaka S's baby, Kimi-kun:)
Japanese children are perfect. I rest my case.
I hope you each have a wonderful New Year and may the close of this year and the start of another bring you peace and the hope that comes from new beginnings. This year for me has been a whirlwind of change and growth, and I am grateful for 2015 and eagerly looking forward to what 2016 will bring.
May the Spirit and Force be with you;)
