Things I’ve said this week that have shocked me:

“Eating this salad is actually really hard with a fork”
“I like running”
“Can we have fried eggs and cereal for breakfast”

Hi hi

1. YURI HAS A BAPTISMAL DATE FOR THE 7th AND I AM SO HAPPY. Something
she said this week is that “yeah I knew Jesus Christ was alive and all
that, but now I FEEL him here, like close” ANYWAY BEST OF WEEKS
PEOPLE. We helped her prep for an event that she had at her shop on
Saturday night, and it was SO FUN. She prayed about baptism and feels
really good about it, so we are so happy. Side note: she had me CLEAN
LEAVES ON PLANTS. People here are so gentle to everything, wow.
Anyway. We also found out that she lives with her boyfriend, so that
is NOT the best news. She has a long way to go still, but I have a lot
of hope for Yuri. Also fun facts we learned: she likes GOSPEL CHOIR,
Playing the piano, ..I think there was something else but I forgot.
2. Yoko cancelled her lesson so that was really sad. Asako is still
MIA but we’re visiting her today so that’s good.

Other items of note:
We are best friends with all the grandmothers of this city! So we were
streeting and we saw this old lady out in her yard so we went to talk
to her and turns out, she was SPINNING A FUTON INTO THREAD TO WEAVE A
TAPESTRY. So then she went into her house, told her other grannie
friends that two white people were here, and they let us in, we dined
on apple cake and hot water, and they showed us their crafts. See
attached picture.

I think that is all.

I love love Japan.
