A week of pictures. Aprils fools!
A view of a Japanese bakery. Everything looks so good. Tom says, "they are good". Bess wishes she could find out.
Omuta Elders Shimada and Tanaka after a clean apartment check.
People moving out of apartment #805 used these moving vans. Just the right size for Japanese streets. New people in #805 came last night to introduce themselves. Things are looking up!!
Tom thought he was going to get out of paying the Baskin Robins price for a clean apartment. He got fooled by Shimizu/Tsuboi's Bagley, Kanaida, Oba, and Lawson Choro.
The Kumamoto Zone Leaders did not let us down on their cleaning check. Watanabe and Beckstrand Choro in front of the bakery.
The Nagamine Shimai, Tokuzawa and Uchida, had a spotless apartment.
We spent Friday at Huis Ten Bosch, Japan's largest in area theme park. It is located by Sasebo. We had a very relaxing day and two nights in a soft bed at the Navy Lodge at Sasebo. Did we mention that there was a Far East Bazaar there on Saturday? Bess enjoyed the shopping experience! Some of the profit went to the school. We shopped for the school! (and for the fun of it)
The slowest moving ferris wheel we have seen. We made one slow revolution on it.
With all the wind mills and tulips we thought we were in Holland.
Found a french fry to eat.
Love these hats.
A view from the top of the ferris wheel.
Another view from the top of the ferris wheel.
We thought these were only in the Wii.
Saturday night we attended our first baptism since Christmas. Hope for many more. Six investigators also attended.
Tokuzawa Shimai, Ward Mission Leader, Kametani Shimai, and Uchida Shimai.
We will listen to LDS General Conference next week. Being a day ahead and needing to wait for the conference to be translated, causes this to happen. We will listen to some this week as we have time. Conference has taken on a deeper meaning since we have been here. We wait with anticipation for six months for the next conference. We love to listen to and study the conference talks to see what the Lord is telling us to do!
Mom and Dad,
Grandma and Grandpa,
Bess and Tom
