Here is a quick update for this week: After almost 6 weeks of being in Yamagata, this week we finally were able to teach all three of our investigators this week! All 3 are middle aged women, and one of them is from the Phillippines. She is wonderful. We taught her about the plan of salvation and tried to commit her to be baptized, but she says she needs more time to prepare herself. She has a smoking problem, so we set a goal for her to try to quit smoking by the end of January. She has been smoking 10 cigarettes a day, but the next day after the lesson she texted us and said she'd only smoked 3 cigarettes that day! We were so excited!
On Sunday as me and my companion were riding our bikes to church we both took a spill together on the ice....me first and George Shimai right behind me. Haha biking and ice don't mix so well, but we both went down pretty smoothly and didn't get hurt!
I love you so much!
Love Kingu Shimai
