Dear Family and Friends,
Let's talk about this last week. Well, since this transfer has begun,
it's been difficult and good. We had President Interview last week. I
had a lot of questions about being a leader, and one thing he said
stuck out to me. "A leader is someone who does what is
right--quietly." He also spoke to me about some things he expected me
to accomplish with my area, and with my companion.
He also said that nothing should change with this leadership
assignment, and that everyone plays an important role. Well, you know,
I needed to hear that. I am me, no matter what my calling.
My companion keeps getting surprised at my ability to remember every
single rule in the white handbook, and ones that President Wada has
dictated, which may or may not be written. Yesterday, she said,
"you're like a super missionary. Sometimes it gets on my nerves, but."
But I am no such thing... I think she probably wouldn't say that if
she had seen me last transfer! >.<
I love the gospel. It blesses my life. It blesses everyone, and it is
I'm having fun now, trying my best to learn Spanish with my companion,
who speaks fluent Spanish! She's amazing, and frequently uses it, even
In Japan, all the streets are prettily arranged with flowers.
"You are hereby called to serve in the Japan Tokyo South Mission."
