Elder Wheatley goes home this week, he finishes his mission, so we visit a million people so you will recieve a million photos.
Yasuyo, mother of our investigator family who Elder Culverwell and I found and started teaching back in July, has come to Church a few times recently - even though we haven't been able to teach her all transfer because she has been busy. She came this past week, and so did Elder Tashiro, and area seventy who also did a great fireside after Church which Yasuyo stayed for. In fact, Elder Tashiro really directed and applied it to Yasuyo and helped her see what a miracle it was that she started learning about the Gospel, and how it has and can continue to help her and change her life. After the fireside they spent quite some time talking, too. I know Yasuyo had a spiritual experience and after a while of her not really going anywhere, I really feel like she is ready to start hearing the lessons and progressing again.
Last night we had our last lesson with Asuka, a long time investigator. She has a number of problems, but last night we had a really spiritual lesson in which we were able to identify the Spirit, and testify that we knew that she could feel it too. Same as Yasuyo, I feel like Asuka is really starting to progress and to go somewhere.

We did service, pulled out a tree, had lunch with our man Mayan who is the coolest Nihonjin on the island(s), and had dinner with the famous Nobeoka family - the Kais.
Had another dinner at an Italian-like restaurant, checked out some okay swords, and visited Haruka and took some weird photos like usual I guess
