At the start of the week, we were just not getting along. And that was just too bad because Elder Holman is an awesome guy with a lot of dendo Fire. This transfer I decided to try to do my best to be
perfectly obedient. Which is a good thing; however, I wasn't doing it in the best way. So just over time the small little tensions that I caused built up and we had to have a little talk. I'm really glad we
did, because for some of it, I didn't realize that I was even doing it and some I didn't realize it bothered him. And I was able to share some things with him that I thought were important and we were able to start to fix the problem.
Then at the end of the week, we had some issues with members taking offense of things said and things done. So we had some long meetings with people that were thinking of quitting trying with Church. During these problems, we noticed that our companionship has become much better, with our relationship, being on the same page, teaching, etc. So we got to talk with people and remind them of the covenant that they made and of what is really important. Although the problems aren't completely solved, everyone is much happier than before.
The story behind the title is that we were with our recent convert (or he was with us while we were filling out envelopes to send is more accurate) and he was listening to music on his headphones and was talking about the songs. He, like all Japanese people, loves listening to English music and he tries to sing along. It is really funny because we can't hear the song and we just have a good time with it. One came on and he was doing really good and so we mentioned it and he was like "I wonder who is singing?" And then he looked and said, "ahh, Celine Dion sasuga (as expected)" it was just really funny.
So all in all, we had a great week. And we even had shokujikai after church and an awesome dendo meeting with the whole branch. Everyone is committed to try and help only one other person, a specific person, to come to church. It is super awesome!
I'm really excited to work together with my companion this week and to learn a new way to dendo together. It'll probably be fun. Hahaha
So here is a picture explaining it.
