Thanks for the e-mail. I`m also really enjoying reading Joshua`s
e-mails as well. Everything here has been going pretty well.
There was a typhoon last friday so we couldn`t go outside. We did however
find a good way to work if we are stuck in the apartment. We started going
through our area book and called as many people as we could. It turned
out to be really effective. We found and talked to this lady who met
the missionaries before and said we could come visit her when there
wasn`t a typhoon.
The investigators we have been working with are
kinjin (which means they are golden people). It is amazing seeing
people progress and make changes in their lives so they can live the
gospel. The other day we also went to visit a less active member who lives
pretty far away. I felt like we basically rode our bikes around the
entire island. It was tiring but we had a great visit.
Recently we have also been learning a lot of different expressions that
people use in Miyako. It has been fun learning them but it is honestly
like a totally different language. Lucky for us they are not used very often.
Only the elderly people here know a lot of the different expressions.
It has been a fantastic week and a great transfer. Today we have our
transfer calls so we`ll find out later today if anything is changing.
I love you all very much.
Love, Elder Joseph Gandy
