So this time, I'm staying. It's bitter sweet to see Akamatsu Shimai
go, but I know she'll do amazing things in her new area, and I am
blessed to have a friend of mine, Imano Shimai, be my companion for
her last transfer! Wow!
So, I testify that when we work hard, we see miracles. When we give
our all to God, He helps us become what we can become, which is
something greater than we know.
We went an hour and a half drive out to Fushiyoshida, and visited some
members the and did some housing. When we housed, we found a woman who
was the youngest of six, like me, not only that was the same, but so
was much much more! What a miracle I thought! She almost shut the door
on us, but we started talking to her about family history, and I told
her about how my great great grandfather moved to America alone when
he was ten years old, and from there we were able to have a great
conversation. I remember not being able to figure out how I would use
family history in my missionary work, but now I can see that there are
many opportunities here.
Other miracles are many!
Another example is that we had so many people come to our summer
festival! We were so busy that night! I am excited for a new transfer!
Thank you all! Love you,
"You are hereby called to serve in the Japan Tokyo South Mission."
