Transfer 8.5: Sign Language and Sickness

I can hardly believe that it is this time of the week again! Let me see
what I can thrill you with this week. What adventures were had within the
past 7 days…?

Last Tuesday, we had the opportunity to visit a cute little old lady. Who
happens to be deaf. Luckily, in the 3 wards that I have served in, there
have been deaf people and people who translated the meetings for them into
Shuwa, or Japanese sign language. I have been able to learn just a little
bit, and I absolutely love it!! I am still not very good, but I can
communicate well enough and I love what I learn. Sister Hasegawa was really
sweet in working with us. We shared a picture with her and she bore such a
sweet testimony about Christ and his love. I was really amazed! I look
forward to getting to meet with her again.

Later that evening, Sister Wright was having a really hard time breathing
and we couldn’t find her inhaler. We called Sister Wada and she suggested
that we go to Tokyo to get her a new inhaler. Sudden Tokyo adventure! It
was definitely an interesting ride. We ran into a man who walked up to us
specifically and said “you are Mormon, right? That means your are nice and
will give me 500 yen, right?” I was a bit confused, out of money, and in a
hurry, so we weren’t able to help him out. It was an odd situation.

Right as we walked out of the station in Tokyo, we ran into some other
Sister missionaries- super coincidence! Then we got a TAXI (my first taxi
ride ever… Also, I apparently have a super secret talent for waving down
and stopping the first taxi I see) and heading over and getting her a new
inhaler. Yay for being able to breathe!

The next few days involved meetings, reorganizing kids Eikaiwa, more
meetings, and getting sick for the first time on my mission. Yaaaaay. Moral
of the story, don’t eat the ginger off of Sister Feist’s plate when you
know she is sick. Just don’t do it. I had a sore throat, which turned into
a dribble nose, which turned into a cough. Cough cough, it really isn’t
bad, I promise. Just a little bit of the sniffles, that’s all. And I sound
WAAAY nasally whenever I talk.

I had the opportunity to go to a special meeting on Saturday. It was for
district leaders and “influential sisters” aka sisters who are getting up
in years. I am an old missionary, I know. OKAY I KNOW *cries forever* I
still feel like a baby missionary but I guess that doesn’t matter at this
point. It was a great experience, and I got to see my friends like Elder
Coggins and Elder adultery! …. Autocorrect. I’m not changing that one. I
meant Elder Suiter. Which makes that funnier. Anyways. It was a good
learning experience and I think I am growing more and more each day! I hope
each of you can say that same.

I think I’m going to go sleep for three years now, thank.

Including Yamato missionaries (Clark, Wright, Fernilius, Donelli,
Talintino, Otsuka, I can’t spell any if these names….) and practically
all of Yamato primary 😄
