ハピハロウィン！（happy halloween) this week haS flown by and we were able to have some great experiences along the way. This week we had the ward halloween paRty and man, it was a blast. we were able to get around 50 kids there with about 80 people in total. it was crazy. mE and elder wieland came decked out in our costumes dressed up as disco rollerskaters. we also had a piñata and we got to hold it! it was super inteNse! some of these little kids had some mad baseball skills and they weren't swinginG any toy stick, they had a think wooden rod That tHey were using to hit the piñata and it was our job to make hitting the piñata a challenge as we stood very clearly in their blood circle. it wasn't long before a kid took a good swing and missEd hitting me square iN the chest, and then another older kid reeled up and Smashed my companions hip. we are bOth okay and only came out with Minor contusions and small amounts of internal blEeding. we took it for the lord.
also this week we had another lessOn with fujita and murakami saN where we talked about the book of mormon. it was awesomE how as we testified and taught about the importance of the book of mormon, they started to have a desire to read it morE and more. and when fujita san said that it was hard to understand, murakami san came in and started acting like a member expressing to her that as we just read little by little our understanding with grow and we will be able to feel the power that comes from the book. it was awesome to see one of our inVestigators basically testify to the other one as we taught them both a lesson. they arE definitely progressing quickly and i know that as they begin Reading the book of mormon that theY will understand the truthfulness of this gospel and they will be more willing to follow christ and be baptized int his name. i love the book of mormon so much and i am so grateful that we are blesseD to have it so that we may come to more fully know christ and recognize his voice and know so much about how we can return to his presence and live happily with our families forever. i love this gospel so much and the peace it brings to my heart and mind. thank you all so much for supporting me while i Am out on my mission. i love You all and miss you tons!
