Well it has been another great week. It sounded like quite the Thanksgiving. No I didn't have turkey this year but we went out to eat at this restaurant and I ordered the biggest size you could get which actually isn't on the real menu. It was mainly just a lot of rice, meat, and onions. We also had dinner with some of the members this week where we had a ton of sushi. So I had plenty of food and I guess a good Japanese Thanksgiving. I think you would also be glad to hear that I'm probably now the least pickiest eater. I really eat just about anything and honestly enjoy it. I've learned to love so many different types of food that I just wouldn't eat before the mission.
This last week we had transfers and my new companion is Elder Iino. He reminds me a lot of Daniel so it has been really fun working with him these past few days. We have been working really hard and I always feel great after a day of hard work. It is very different having a Japanese companion but great. I do feel like I'm understanding the culture more and more. I think when I understand the people here it will be easier to teach them. I feel even though I don't understand everything that is being said I am learning so much from them.
This week we also had an investigator come to church. She is progressing very well and we have a baptismal date set. Hopefully everything continues to go well. Being a missionary is a lot of work but it is a great feeling going out and talking to people and being able to bear testimony to them. I'm so grateful for this opportunity that I have and I'm looking forward to making the most of it. I love you all very much and pray for you everyday.
Love Elder Gandy
