Hey hey hey! Ah...yes, this was indeed an interesting week wasn`t it? But first off, how are you guys?! It was way good hearing from you guys this last week over the phone! It feels like last Monday and Sister Yamashita`s baptism was years ago for some reason. Things get pretty busy when you`re dendoing like crazy you know? But life is good!!!

By the way, tell the Christensen family thanks for the present!!!

 Hm...Its pretty awkward to think that most of my family is in Japan right now...haha Dad is the only odd one out now. But yeah, thanks so much for the package! It was perfect timing because I had just ran out of contacts earlier that day. How is Obachan by the way? Tell her and all of the other obachans I say herro! Ah haha I`m jealous that Selena and Richard get to go around seeing the obachans but whateve, I get to do the Lord`s work over here!

 So yeah, I would have to say that Sunday was probably the most insane day ever! Oh yeah, and I also realized how small the Mormon world is...again. I didn`t know that Brother Adams was a fruit of your MTC work mom! I really like that guy, he`s way nice and I played basketball with him once. But talk about small world huh? I swear, Takamatsu is the area that I`ve felt like I literally know everyone some how...but hey, that just means party party party! But yeah, church was interesting. We did indeed have seven people to church so it was kinda dotabata. And who would`ve thought that Richard would pop out of no where! Man, it was so good seeing him! I was way excited to see that fool! I was kinda bummed because I was too busy teaching lessons and runnin around that I didn`t have time to sit down and talk with him. But whateves, I need to fulfill my missionary duties and take care of my investigators. It was crazy because I hugged him goodbye thinking that I`d never see him again for another year and a half...

 But I was wrong.

Later that day, Elder Wiser and I had inspiration to go housing near an area that we never hit up before. So we were just ridin our bikes down the big road and I decided to turn at one corner because I was too lazy to cross the intersection. We entered a neighborhood that I`ve never seen before so I was trying to spot good Leopalaces that we could house. While we were riding, I heard from behind me someone yelling "Rex!" Man, I recognized that voice instantly. I mean, I`ve heard that voice for 19 years of my life! I turned back and saw someone frantically waving out of their car and I knew it was Selena. Haha I do admit I panicked for a second and tried running away! But my companion was like...nope. So...turns out that we were riding right next to Richard`s grandma`s house and Selena and Richard were coming home right at that time! Ah talk about divine guidance huh? I swear, we would never go to that area for housing! So amazing! But it was so great, I was so excited to see both of them! Ah-ha and I didn`t feel as wampaku as I thought I would seeing them. I mean, I`m sure that that experience was all from God`s direction you know? What a small world...a small world indeed. But I felt way genki after seeing them! And whats even better is that we found a new investigator housing right near we bumped into each other! Ballin!

 Ah ha, so this week was way awesome! The incident of accidently meeting Selena and Richard, our investigators being awesome as usual, and life just being good! Well...I need to go now, we need to begin prepping for the training that we`re going to do for zone leader conference. Gotta work hard! Hope you guys are doing awesome! I love you guys!!!

Mucho Amor,

PS If you guys should hook me up with Alex Boye CDs. He`s black and a christian rock star, what more can I say? ONEGAI!!!!

Hey family! Oh my goodness, time flew so quickly this week! All of your summers have already started!

Okay so before I forget:

Mothers days calls are going down. Like President McIntyre said, you guys will be calling me on Sunday night, which will be a Monday morning for me. As for you know the drill. guys call me Monday morning 8:30am, Japan time. I`m not going to write anymore because I`ll probably just confuse myself. that is that. Anyways, this email is going to be rather short. I just spent 45ish minutes trying to figure out how to do progress records, yakusokusha records and zone visions for the first time. But can I just tell you how awesome it is being a zone leader?! It is dope!!! I`m seriously loving it. The Takamatsu zone maybe on the smaller side but man, it is a great zone! I love every missionary in the zone. They`re all お疲れ!

Anyways, its so good to hear from you guys! Next Monday I`ll be able to talk to all of you over the phone! Ahha except Selena and Richard, thats what they get for going to California without me. It sounds like summers already started up for you guys! Mom is already in Japan and everybody is starting to get married off. Mmm sounds like summer. Well, its awesome to hear that Selena got hooked up with an internship! I knew she`d get one eventually! Congrats sister, congrats. So working in the field with a construction helmet and boots huh? Might as well throw in a beard to seal the deal huh Selena? ahah I joke. Me love you! Buy me a ganster t-shirt from California! Oh and tell Cindy CCCCOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNGGGGGGRRRRRRRRAAAAAAATTTTTTTSSSSSSSS! (wait, she is getting married this week right?)

Well, now I`m too lazy to type more because I`ll just talk to you guys in a few days anyways. Plus, going out bowling with the zone is calling me right now. So I is a go-go. Things are going so great over here! I swear, the Lord blesses us SO much! This is the Lord`s work! We`re all just tools in His hands! I LUV it! Hope you guys are all safe! Mom, be safe when coming to Japan! Selena and Richard, drive safely to Cali! Dad, take care of the dogs and cat. Okay bye!

Con Mucho Amor,

Sus hijo, Elder Saito
