This week was kind of a weird week. We didn't get to do too much dendo (proselyte) this week because I have bad knees. Lemme tell ya this crazy story. Well, for the past two weeks, my knees have been killing me! Well on Wednesday it got so bad that I could barely walk. And Iwasa shimai (Sister Iwasa) was like I'm calling bishop! Our bishop says he is a chiropractor... he's not. He is one of those acupuncture and essential oils dudes... which I do not believe in haha. Well we went to his clinc on Thurday and it just smells like some fruity spa or something haha. I don't know how to describe it. And I'm just like Iwasa shimai this is ridiculous. Rubbing oil on my legs is not going to solve this problem. But she told me that it definitely won't work if I don't have faith haha. Anyways, he has me do this foot massage thing which was nice but not helpful. Then he has me get in this massage bed machine thing which was incredible! Then he made me lay on this weird bed that was heated by some stones or something. I'm not really sure what it was, but I took a nap for 15 minutes on it. Okay, then I go in this little room and they hook me up to some electric shock thing which I did not enjoy! It just shocked my knees for 15 minutes and my knees hurt even worse after. Then Kojima bishop comes and looks at my knees and is like wow they are way swollen. So he gives Iwasa shimai some instructions and leaves. He makes her rub all these oils and spray all these things all over my legs and the whole time I'm just thinking how ridiculous this is and how sorry I feel for Iwasa shimai haha. After that bishop comes back in and has me bend my knees and he sees that I'm in a lot of pain. Well then he starts like messing with my fingers and I'm just like what the heck?! How is this helping anything. Then he looks at me and says "needles" and he leaves and comes back with a bunch of acupuncture needles. He sticks some in my legs and fingers has me do all this deep breathing. And the whole time I'm just thinking how absolutely crazy this is! Well then he has me bend my knees and oh my gosh! The pain is almost totally gone! He does it all again and seriously, I was good as new! I could not believe it! I feel bad for ever doubting him haha. Anyways, it was the best! Then he gave me some oils to take home and he gave me this really nasty drink that I'm supposed to drink everyday and some how it's supposed to help my knees. It's really disgusting but I drink it everyday! haha It was a pretty crazy experience. And now I'm a believer haha.
Okay! We had general conference this weekend! It happens a week later in Japan. Well it was amazing and seriously a huge miracle! Kiymoi is our really awesome investigator! Well her sister, Tomoko, is a member and has been for about 20 years. She lives in Tokyo right now, but she came home for the weekend to visit her family. Tomoko san is seriously amazing! She has been helping us so much with Kiyomi without kiyomi even knowing! Anyways, kyiomi came to all 4 sessions of conference with her sister and it was just a miracle! Kiyomi has been very dilligently seeking to know if the Book of Mormon is true. We prepared her for conference and told her that she could definitely receive the answer she was looking for. Well, in the Saturday morning session, when president Uchtdorf started speaking I just started crying! Because that talk was written for Kiyomi! It was a huge miracle. I didn't get to sit with Kiyomi because me and the other American missionaries were in the English room, but Iwasa shimai told me that Kiyomi loved that talk and she cried too! When I asked Kiyomi how she liked conference she told me that she loved Uchtdorfs talk! Well anyways, she just loved all of conference and told us she learned so much! Well today we have a lesson with her! We are hoping today is the day we finally set a baptismal date with her! She has come such a long way and she is so ready!! We just have to help her see it! Please pray for Kiyomi!
