Winter is over... Maybe‏

Alex sent some of these photos, but many of these are from Elder B. His mom was nice enough to share them so I got to save them and am now sharing them with you. 

So, the transfer call came, and I am going to stay in Aizuwakamatsu
for another transfer with Elder H. We are losing Elder B.,
who is going to yonezawa. Elder M. is coming here from yonezawa.
We are also losing sister h., going to ichinoseki, and is going to
be replaced by sister k., who's first area was Aizuwakamatsu. 

My scripture of the week is Ezekiel 33:11 "Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?"
Kanji of the week is: 経済 pronounced "kay-zai" and means economics Monday was had district p-day, and went to a local statue that is over 50 meters tall. It's pretty big, but not too much to say about it. We then tried to visit a less active member, and since he wasn't home, we visited the branch president and his newly wed wife (they're both young) and shared an Easter message.
Tuesday was splits with elder B. We went to try and contact some old investigators and potential investigators, but no one was home. Then we had a really good lesson with a recent convert. Wednesday was normal, trying to visit some less active's, but never got anything out of it. In the evening, we spent about two hours teaching an investigator the rest of the lessons because of an interview on Saturday. He was sick on that day anyway, but it was a good lesson.

A balding missionary I made
Thursday we had district meeting, and then the rest of the day was making jam for a member who has helped the missionaries a lot, and who recently lost his wife. Friday was spent in Koriyama, and we had fun. We taught a lesson to an investigator there, and he is starting to understand the Book of Mormon, as well as the gospel. English class was fun, and we all were together, since we were small in number this week.
A nice dog we found while streeting
Saturday, we had a lesson in the morning with a less active, and then did weekly planning. We also had a lesson with our recent convert, and that was good. Sunday was, as always, great. We had good church meetings, and I learned a lot. After church we had the wedding reception for the branch president, and that was fun and delicious. The rest of the day was futile visits to less active houses--although we found some nice people on the way--and studies. This week is really short, but I don't really have too much that I'd like to say about it. Have a great week! Love, Elder 長老
