The Small Things

こんにちは!

Not much time today so this will be short!
Notes/Stories from the Week
  • The Small Things
    • Last Saturday
      • Last P-day jamming out on the piano with Elder Strickland (Thanks Jon Schmidt for the tips)!
    • Sunday
      • Seeing the Lord's hand in the transfer process to see where each missionary will go.
    • Monday
      • Spending a few hours with zone leaders and then a few hours with Kaicho talking about all of the missionaries in the mission and all of the investigators with baptism dates in the mission.
    • Tuesday
      • Going to an absolutely fanastic district meeting by Elder Tofa where he skillfully called us to repentance for being even remotely trunky.
    • Wednesday
      • Meeting on the street a young father who's mother in law just passed away. He was wondering if there was hope.
    • Thursday
      • Meeting "Go" on the street! See story below.
    • Friday
      • Eating out an Indian curry with the office staff!
      • Making a delicious no-bake cherry cheesecake.
    • Today
      • Going to a grocery store and given free mochi! See the video! We even got to help make it!
Miracle/"Tendy Mercy" for the Week
This past week's dendo was a blast! While getting rejected certainly isn't always fun, finding those with interest makes it all worth it. This last week we met a man named, "Go," (I told him my name was "Stop." He actually laughed so I immedietely liked him). He is interested in God and actually gave us his contact information so we can meet with him. To most it would just seem like a random interaction, but it is always a miracle to me when we find people like him who seem to have been searching for the truth for their entire lives.

Video and Invitation for the Week
A bit similar to the last two weeks of videos, this one talks about how we naturally judge others. Whether it is judging the homeless, those of a different faith, or those that are simply different than you, I think we can all agree it does no good in the long run. 

Pictures for the Week.
