Last Saturday we celebrated Pioneer Day at the base beach with our ward members. It was a good day for some food, boating and paddle-boarding.

It's festival season in Japan! We got here the end of August last year, so we barely missed all these cool festivals. This weekend was the Tanabata festival just outside the gate here in Misawa.

I was listening this morning to an old conference talk from 2000 by Richard G. Scott and this passage stuck out to me: "LUCIFER WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE TO RELIVE THE DETAILS OF PAST MISTAKES KNOWING THAT SUCH THOUGHTS CAN HAMPER YOUR PROGRESS THUS HE ATTEMPTS TO TIE STRINGS TO THE MIND AND BODY SO THAT HE CAN MANIPULATE YOU LIKE A PUPPET TO DISCOURAGE PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT".

So July is almost over, crazy I know, this month went so fast.

We had a lovely 4-day weekend over the 4th and I thought for sure we would go out of town. We ended up staying around the base but went for an amazing day trip to Takayama Inari Shrine in Tsugaru City, also known as 100 torii gates although it's actually 201. Misawa is on the East coast of the island and Tsugaru is on the West coast, so it was almost two and a half hours in the car, but worth it.
