The best part of the week was probably devotional. Lowell M. Snow came and spoke to us. He's a former seventy and he's served like 5 missions! He was super cool and his talk was amazing. It was about being converted to the Lord and not just to the church. And he talked about how we need to help our investigators act so that they can build faith and he talked about a lot of other things that were really just amazing! And then after devotional we always go back to our districts and have devotional review. Which is just a mini testimony meeting with our district and a member of the branch presidency always joins us. It's the best! Anyways, we were all crying. Seriously every single one of us. These elders and sisters in my district are seriously amazing. They have amazing spirits and testimonies that just touch your heart. There are these two elders in particular. They're actually companions, oh my gosh. They are incredible people. So Lamautia Choro (Elder Lamautia) is my age and he's actually from Laie, HI and his mom died a couple of years ago. And he talks about her a lot and how much he just wants to be here for his mom. And he is seriously the hardest worker I've ever met. He's amazing and every time he shares his testimony, I cry. And so does everyone else. Okay and then his companion is Orellana choro (Elder Orellana) and he's from Chile. And he came here knowing very little English. So it's been super hard for him because basically he's learning two languages at once. But he works so hard and his English and Nihongo (Japanese) are both amazing now! LIke seriously. It's amazing and it's evidence that the gift of tongues is real! They have both been really inspirational for me. And whenever I feel like I can't learn Nihongo (Japanese), I always think about Orellana choro (Elder Orellana) and then I stop being a baby haha. But seriously. Everyone in my district is amazing and I wish I had more time to write you about each of them!
I love you guys! I hope your summers are going well! I'll talk to you next week
