The missionaries surprised Sister Budge with a "heart attack" in the mission home on her birthday.  Each heart had a message from the missionaries; they gave her flowers and made a wonderful cheesecake.  It was very thoughtful and a lot of fun.  Sister Budge will treasure these messages and the memories forever.

Sister Budge's homemade cinnamon rolls were a big hit at the zone conferences.

Mission Tour

Elder and Sister Aoyagi of the Second Quourm of the Seventy toured the mission from September 17th to September 20th, 2012.  They met with all the missionaries in three separate 3-zone conferences.  From the top:  Fujisawa, Yokohama and Machida zones; Nakano, Musashino and Chiba zones; Saitama, Kiryu and Matsudo zones.  Sister Budge celebrated her birthday on September 20th, the last day of the mission tour.

September 2012.  We have learned not to teach lessons about the relative merits of cooperation versus competition by using an arm wrestling metaphor when training at zone conferences!
