A Week Full of Fun!

Wednesday night was our Enlgish class party. Lots of people came and we had a great time. After Ping-pong, we ate some crepes, played some games, and then had a concert. Who provided the concert? Well, the branch president here in Matsumoto owns a tenor saxophone, and though he`s just beginning, he let me borrow it. So, with Elder Elmer on the piano and me on the sax, we played "Somewhere out there" "The Pink Panther" "Somewhere over the Rainbow" in honor of Kansas, and then just a great blues which got everyone dancing and clapping and having a great time. it was a huge success - and lots of fun. I had forgotten how much I loved playing the saxohpone too.

Then came saturday night which brought the Sports Night that we had planned. We had reserved a nearby gym and have been handing out fliers for baout a month. 42 people came - with 25-30 being nonmembers and the rest less-active members. It was lots of fun - very tiring - but a great time. We have made so many friends and it was a great opportunity for everyone to makes friends with each other.

Well when we`re not partying so much with everyone - we`ve been working hard too. Teaching lots of lessons; working with members who are going through trials; just generally serving people and things like that. There`s so much to do, and so many opportuinites, but when the Spirit directs us He leads us to the most important and pressing matter. We`ve seen His hand in this work. I`ve met some very impressive people and have enjoyed very much teching them the message of the restoration.

Well today we recieved transfer calls. I am staying in Matsumoto, and so is Elder Pratt, by companion from England. However...Elder Elmer is transfering to Takayama, which is about 50 miles directly west of us. He was pretty sad - especially since this is such a good area, but he will do very well.

last week on monday we went to a national park called Kamikochi. It was so beautiful. I took some pictures - but I bought some postcards which always look better.

The work is going well. We`re trying to find some more people to teach and help those we`re currently teaching progress further. It`s good to hear from everyone back home. It`s been hard sometimes - but that`s when I`ve felt Heavenly father@s love for me the most.
Have a good week.
