People and Faith!


Overall great week! Tons of faith building experiences and some awesome friends made

Notes/Stories from the Week
-I've come to the conclusion that my entire mission, and life for that part, is simply relationships. Yes, work and money and all that is important, but my relationship with God, my family, and friends are the focus.

-That being said, here are some of the people we are meeting with:

-Chichi- Japanese freshman here at one of the colleges. She lived in Utah for a year with a Mormon family her junior year of high school and LOVES the church. Not a member, but has strong faith and came to our institute last week. We met her when she ran up to us in a grocery store.

-Kanchana- he is a member from Sri Lanka! Baptized a few years ago and is struggling with his faith a bit. We are meeting with him and his wife each week. He is the man! Fluent in English, Japanese and a few other languages. Loves God and missionaries.

-Arai- way chill college student from India. We met him on the street a few days ago and he called us today and asked to meet up tonight! More to follow next week!

Miracle/"Tendy Mercy" for the Week
As for the faith building experiences this week, there were a lot:
-I'm reading the Book of Mormon each day and searching for what is teaches about our relationship with God. Everyday I'm amazed at how every single page talks about it!

-Last night we were out by one of the colleges and ended finding an incredible mother with two kids. My companion talked to the Mom while I played with the kids. THey kept bringing out different games and stuffed animals! When we follow the spirit in dendo, we are always led to those with interest who match our personalities. 

-Institute! We started an institute class this past week for the college members. See pictures below! We are teaching a basic course on Christ and all that He has, does, and will do for us!
