Hello everybody! Short update!
We had a tough first couple of days here in Takatsuki. Me and my trainee are both newcomers, so we had no idea what to do. We just got lost a whole bunch and talked to people on the way. Yep. When life gives you lemons you just eat 'em and deal with it.
My companion is a brand new, fresh out of the oven (which is symbolic for the heat of California, his hometown) half Japanese stud called elder Taguchi. That's right. Elder rice field-mouth. He's made of AwesomeSauceTM ! He's really nice and has guts (he's not afraid of speaking Japanese -- no matter how little he knows)! This is going to be a really good transfer!
The ward members are super nice and they seem to be best buds with the missionaries! I hope we can do a lot of good stuff over here, this transfer. And you know what else? I also hope you all have a nice week! LOVE YOU!!
