So Hiratasan... gosh, shes gonna give me a stroke one day. Seriously I'm going crazy. Okay. So on Tuesday she called and wanted to meet so we kinda had a lesson, but mostly she just talked about how she really wants to be happy and she wants to tell her dad about the church but she was scared and gosh, I had no idea what to say. But Sahochan, this way awesome member whos parents were super hantai (against), just happened to be at the church because there was some YSA activity and the thought popped in my head to go get her.... so I did and oh my gosh! They talked forever and it was amazing! Hiratasan just poured her soul out to Sahochan and gosh, Sahochan was amazing. She said exactly what needed to be said. Okay, then on Friday we had another lesson with her and it was awesome! The Furutas came and we just talked about church and really tried to get her excited about going to church and we sang hymns and she cried and it was so great! Gosh, then that night she called me crying because she was way depressed and we talked for a while and she asked to meet the next day. So we scheduled to meet. So Saturday I message her to make sure it's still good and she tells me that she can't become christian..... I called her a million times, she didn't answer. So I was way upset and super sad because gosh I have done everything I could possibly do for this girl. I have cried so many tears for her. I've prayed so much for her. and she just dropped us. Gosh and then I wanted to punch my companion because she's just like I knew this was gonna happen. Kaicho(mission president) should have told us to drop her a long time ago and ugh. you have no idea how mad I was.... soooo I ate three donuts. haha. Okay, then Sunday happened.... and Norihiko called and asked me to play the piano in sacrament meeting and I really didn't want to but I did. Really badly because I was mad haha. Anyways, I spent all morning praying my guts out that somehow something would happen and Hirata would come to church. So I'm sitting up at the piano listening to testimonies and the phone vibrates and it's Hiratasan! so I run outside and answer it and she's like I'm so sorry! I'm coming to church right now!!! So gosh! She comes to church and she sees me and gives me this huge hug and says she's way sorry and then she told me she came because she went to Fujisakigu and they still had all this new years stuff out and she got a fortune or something and it told her to believe in God. So she came to church. Seriously the biggest miracle ever. Gosh! Then in Sunday school Matsuyama kyodai starts talking about how his one daughter has mental health problems and Hiratasan started to cry! Because they have the same biyoki (illness) and she just told me she felt so loved. and GOSH!!! it was totally perfect. God really does answer our prayers. I'm so grateful. I know that dumb piece of paper she randomly got from some fortune whatever was no coincidence. (guzen janai yo!) It was God answering my prayers and it was exactly what Hiratasan needed in order for her to come to church. I am so grateful. Being a missionary is the best!
Love you guys! Happy new year!
