24 May

The month of April brought travel for interviews.  We love it when this time rolls around!  It’s a time to get to visit with every missionary in the mission one-on-one.  While waiting for their turn the missionaries had a chance to mogi (practice) some of their contacting and teaching techniques. The following are a few pictures that were taken.

Elder Waterbury has lost about the same weight as Elder Minamikawa has all together!!

We always take a treat of some sort…cookies, brownies, or something like that.  The missionaries have told me how much they miss fruits and vegetables because they are so expensive in Japan, so I decided to take some vegetables with ranch dressing (special ordered).  You would not believe how excited they were!  They ate those veggies so fast and sounds of ahhh! could be heard.  One elder even offered me 10,000 yen (about $100) for the bottle of ranch dressing!!!  Who would have thought…

We decided to have a little fun with our travel – and decided to count the number of tunnels (with one of those little hand-held clicker-counters) that we drove through during the month of April. The count was 330!  Yes, that is right…330 tunnels!!  They don’t go around; they go right through the middle in Japan.

But more fun than that was getting to be with all of the missionaries – we just love interview time!
