I am transferring to Katsura (somewhere near Kyoto), and my near companion is going to be Larkin Shimai. I'm excited for what Heavenly Father has in store for me, but my heart breaks inside to be leaving my darling precious Tsuyama.
Sister Howden and I
So many wonderful amazing things have happened in the 5 1/2 months that I have been here. I have seen the branch members grow so much.
The youth are so much stronger now, and people are finally smiling again. We aren't sure what Heavenly Father has planned for Tsuyama, but I trust that it is all in His hands, and He knows what is best.
Some of my Favorite People!!!
Not a whole lot has happened this week, just housing an funny experiences. We met this one man who was best friends with a member who passed away 20 years ago. He was fun to talk to though, and perhaps we will see him at Eikaiwa (english class) on Tuesday. Besides that, we met a lot of young moms with babies that we know would really help bring some life into our little branch.
I love you all so much, and I hope you are having a wonderful new year!
