From Kagoshima

Hello everyone! Long time, no see!

This transfer I am still going to be in Kagoshima and my companion is Sister Glathar! She is half Japanese, half American and is from Lehi, Utah. She is one of the most charitable people I have ever met and has helped me feel so much of God`s love and mercy. I can't wait to see what this transfer holds.

We also have two new elders. One is named Elder Chestnut, he is from America. And Elder Kawabata from the same group I came to Japan with. This district is so fun and really feels like a family. Elder Kimura and Woolston are staying in Kagoshima! 

Next week for a meeting we are going to the Kumamoto Zone! Just for a day, but it will be fun. 

Thanks for all the prayers!

The members here are incredible!
I am honored to be a member and missionary here in Japan

Our district. Left to right
Zone leader: Woolsten, Johnson Choro, me, Countryman Shimai,Elder
Kimura, Zone/District Leader York, and an investigator! We are
actually with him right now!

Elder Woolsten is from Utah, Johnson is from Las Vegas! He is going to Ishigaki for this transfer. He was also converted because of his boss at work! Countryman Shimai is my genius companion! Kimura Chourou is from Hawaii and speaks fluent Japanese. York Choro is ending his mission after this transfer. And the elders' investigator is awesome, he played in a ward talent show and was awesome at the violin!

Our district and some other missionaries from Taniyama 
Water ballon volleyball! So fun!

Sports night!

Thanks for your patience. I will be staying in Kagoshima for this transfer and I am going to be with a sister named Glather Shimai! We have a lot of potential investigators and this transfer is going to hold so many miracles!

I know and testify that when we are humble, and recognize the Lord's hand. We will see tons of miracles! The Lord is at the head of this work! And God never fails. So let us be on his side! 

Love you
Freed Shimai
