I am loving serving here in Tsukuba with Reyes shimai. She is great!
We get to stay here and serve together for another transfer so it is going to be awesome!
On recent p-days we have been able to see some beautiful parts of Tsukuba with some wonderful people.
A peaceful waterfall on a mountain we hiked up with a friend

Tsukuba Botanical Gardents
I found Chocolate!
Besides loving nature and plants, I also really love the Savior and the Book of Mormon.
Today I love Mormon 7. 
I love that he talks about Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Savior of the world. 
Then invites us to do our part. 
He invites to be baptized and promises us blessings of Eternal Life. 
It is short sweet and beautiful!
If you know me, you know I LOVE nature and plants!

Halloween and P-day!

So Halloween is always a fun time for missionaries to bring some childhood fun to Japan!
We put on a big event with food, games, costumes and friends!

We had a Zone P-day today. It was transfer calls so we got together to have pancakes and hear our transfer calls together. 
Reyes shimai and I are staying where we are. I am so happy!! We work really well together and get along great and we are happy to stay here together for another 6 weeks!
The Nato (fermented soybeans) challenge at Zone P-day
Reyes shimai is only smiling because she hasn't tasted the Nato yet!
Here is a thought: If you haven't ever put Moroni's challenge to the test (or it has been a while), try it!
In the Book of Mormon read Moroni 10:3-5 (page 529) and put it to the test!
Good things are to come!
