Dear Family and Friends,
Excuse the video at the end of this email. :) it was just what I was
feeling at the time.
The work is going good now. There are more promised blessings ahead as
we continue to open our mouths and share what we know to be true.
How is the faith in the world going? What about the way the church is
going? I love this church. I love the truth. I believe that the church
How do I know? God has told me. He will speak to us if we "listen".
Here's a fun fact about Japanese. The word for "listen" also can mean
"to ask". 聞く
This last week was full of activity. On Monday last week, we cleaned,
and cleaned, and cleaned, and made our apartment way pretty. Well,
then, we had Tuesday, and on Tuesday, we had a really awesome zone
meeting, and afterwards went to Tabehodai(all you can eat)
Shabu-Shabu(you cook meat and other vegetables in a pot with water,
and then eat it with a sauce you make), and for some reason, the
Elders who were there ordered the big menu. We couldn't eat it all!
But I persevered, and it was all eaten. I think I ate most of it.
Haha. Then, we had a lesson with Yuuko, and then we went to District
meeting, and then we visited someone the Elders had found housing. It
was busy. Well, the lesson went really well.
Then on Wednesday, we went back to visit Yuuko with a member, Sister
Gaitau ! Hooray!
Thursday, weekly Planning and various other things. :)
Friday, we visited the lady mentioned before again, taught a lesson,
but then she told us not to come back again. So, she said she wasn't
interested. It was sad. We did our best to testify, and also relate
the gospel to her, but those who aren't ready just are not ready yet.
Also! I got to go on exchanges with Sister Magleby!! And I learned a
ton from her. She is so dendo Fire! (Mission fire) she knows way well
how to House, and sticks straight to the purpose. I learned a lot. I
hope to go on exchanges with her again!
Also, I got to partipcate in ワクワククッキング in Atsugi, because of the
exchange. We made a ton of stained glass cookies with a couple of
investigators and the ward mission leader. It was great. I also got to
participate in two lessons! It was amazing How well the Atsugi sisters
So, Sunday was good, and at church we didn't have any investigators
come, which was way sad! We were really hoping that our friend would
come, but she decided to not come suddenly. But when she does, it will
