Ebetsu Fun!

Hello again!

Ebetsu is still great! Imanishi Shimai and I are working hard, having a lot of fun and eating a lot of ice cream (it has been hot lately! The ice cream is a necessity, I am sure).

One of the awesome things about Ebetsu that I forgot to mention last week is that there are like five colleges here, so there are lots of fun young people for us to talk to. It has been really fun to talk to people close to our age on the street about classes and tests (and be glad again that I don`t have any right now) and things that I can easily relate to. We met a really awesome girl this past week that I am excited about. She`s a third year student studying archaelogy and philosophy (which is pretty awesome in itself), and she is really smart. We met her on the street on Wednesday and then again on Saturday when we were able to talk some more, and she even came with us to church on Sunday. It was actually the first time someone I have met has come to church, so it was super happy. I think she is still getting a sense of what we are talking about, but we have another appointment tonight so I am excited to see where it goes!

Um, I am having a hard time concentrating so I will just start sending pics and describing those!

Scripture of the Week:
3rd Nephi 13:19-21 (Book of Mormon. Compare to Matthew 6:19-21)
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and theives break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where theives do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Fun Japanese word of the Week:
dokutoku = unique

My new district in Ebetsu! It should be a lot of fun, because everyone is super entertaining. There are six missionaries in the Ebetsu area right now, so our district is all working in the same ward and we see each other all the time, like pretty much every day. Oh, and Stilson Choro, who was in my district at the MTC, is in Ebetsu right now too so it is a lot of fun to work together!

Also, one of the awesome members of the Atsubetsu ward came and stopped by the Ebetsu English class (which is kind of different from the regular missionary English classes, so I will have to explain that later) so that was super happy.

And Imanishi Shimai and I ate food. Always a good idea.

We ate at some wondeful Ebetsu members` houses. It was delicious. And fun!

This weekend near the train station they had this big summer celebration/dance competition. We kept seeing two second snippets of it as we rode our bikes, so during our dinner break we took a few minutes to watch a bit. It was really cool Japanese dancing! I will have to see some more sometime in the future.
