We checked the Beppu Elders apartment and then enjoyed a yakuniku lunch with the Elders for having a very clean apartment for us to check.
The drive home was filled with a beautiful sunset as we neared Kumamoto.
Saturday, we attended a second Japanese class at the Prefectural University of Kumamoto. One of the things our lesson covered was reading a bus schedule in Japan. Elder Koberstein and I have avoided buses as we worried about our lack of speech and reading. We have a car and bicycles to get around on and have managed without using buses or trains. Above is an example of a bus schedule. The kanji are still daunting but knowing how it reads and where to look for things makes it seem more manageable. We may try it.
Saturday evening I enjoyed the General Women's conference broadcast from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Women 8 years and up from around the world attended in person or by Internet/satellite etc. We had the broadcast one week late in Japan so that translation into Japanese could take place. Seven sister listen to the broadcast in English (what a privilege) at the same time it was broadcast to other in Japanese at the Kumamoto Stake Center. The above picture was taken off line of the conference in Salt Lake City.
