I feel like I was just emailing yesterday! Another week down!
Notes/Stories from the Week
-On Thursday we found ourselves on another 4.5 hour bus ride to Kumamoto for interviews with the mission president! Being with President and Sister Egan is always incredible. Their role in my life has become something like a loving, strict parents who push me to be better than I see my self, best-friends who can laugh with and at me :), and really those cool Uncle and Aunt who I love to be around so I can be more like them. There were probably many reasons why God assigned me to serve in the Japan, Fukuoka mission, and being with them was certain one of them.
-Some of the lessons this week:
1) Another fun lesson with Francious from Haiti. She always has a lot of small questions about things like the age of baptism, why we worship on Sunday, and other things like that, but we always try to tie it back to the Book of Mormon and the restoration. Our message is rather simply actually, a loving Heavenly Father has and always will tell us what we need to know through prophets of God. This past Sunday that finally clicked for her. She realized the potential of her unanswered spiritual questions being able to be answered. Pretty incredible!
2) Teraji is also doing well. She is a japanese lady in her 40s or so and is exploring the possibility of God being real. We retaught her the message of the restoration and it clicked for her this time! She understood a bit more about how because God loves her, He has given her everything from prophets, to Jesus Christ, to the Book of Mormon and Bible, and the Spirit. She realized at least a small amount of how much He is doing to help her.
