Dear Mom and Sasha,

What did she [Sister Glathar] do before her mission? Where was she studying? 
Sister Glathar studied at UVU and wants to be a dental hygenist. 

We had the same companion as well. Last transfer I had Countryman Shimai and she had her in the MTC. 

She is half Japanese and a really hard worker. She wants to be poly though. Haha, she loves Moana. 

We have been seeing some awesome miracles too. When we first met Fuji Shimai she was a strong Buddhist member, but now she is praying and reading the Book of Mormon. She has progressed a ton since we started teaching her. Please pray for her, pray that she will accept our baptism offer this month or next.

A less active member also came to church yesterday! Prayers are answered! It was a huge miracle! She has not been to church for probably 4 months and yet she came yesterday! It was such a blessing.

Re-activation in the church is so important!!! 

Oh, and mom I heard that you are doing primary! I love primary! Once when I was in Hikari, they had us missionaries with the primary students. It was a blast! Of course there were the snarky ones and the obedient ones, but man is the work worth it!

I still remember my primary teacher Sister Brown. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have read the Book of Mormon when I was young!

Love you both so much,

Thanks for the prayers, and I hope you are both healthy.
I am honored to be a member and a missionary here in Japan

Dear mom dad and Sasha,
Things are going awesome with Glathar Shimai and I!

Dear President Egan,
Sister Glathar is a huge blessing, and she is working so hard on her Lesson Mastery. She is a hard worker and helps me so much. I love her so much and I know she will be an incredible missionary.

Kawabata choro and Shimamura Shimai!

So much fun. We also have a really special investigator named K! We met her streeting during the last transfer. And last week she told us she wants to learn about Jesus Christ. She sees that Christians are so happy and she wants to know why! I am so excited for her during this transfer!

Thank you for all your prayers! I fell off my bike again, but only mildly sprained my two fingers. They are already healing really fast!

Love you all!
I am honored to be a member and a missionary here in Japan
