Hello! This week was way fast and crazy! But it was way good! So on Thursday we had Zone conference and got an awesome training from Kaicho (Mission President) and the APs. They talked about Easter and Christ and how awesome it is that we get to be missionaries and share that message with everyone. Kaicho talked about how we are imperfect people doing a perfect work and he talked a lot about grace and how it's through the grace of Christ that we can be missionaries and do His work. It was really awesome! Then on Friday we spent all day traveling to Fukuoka for the Elder Nelson conference/ ipad training! It was a very long bus ride.... but it was worth it! Because Saturday was awesome! Elder Nelson is way great! gosh, he just really inspired us to be better. It really was the best. We all got to shake his hand too! SO cool! Anyways, he talked about how we are really a chosen generation. He talked about how each of us were saved to come to earth at this exact time to do this work. I can't even express to you, how awesome his message was! But I think all of us left there with the resolve to be better! He talked a lot about how we as missionaries, need to also experience our own conversion on our missions. Everyday we focus on helping other come unto Christ and help them change their hearts, but at the end of our mission we should be our biggest convert. Gosh, Then we got ipad training because for real, we are getting ipads in a few weeks! haha. way exciting! Anyways, that was pretty much our week! But! on Sunday! we had a lesson with our investigator, Nacchan! and we talked about setting her baptismal date. She has been an investigator for years... and she's had a lot of baptismal dates and she's even had an interview once. So we are really trying to get her to commit! and I think we are making a lot of progress. I think! She seems like a totally different person than when I first met her. She's praying right now about what day to get baptized! We are praying our guts out for her too! Anyways, that was pretty much our week! Its great being a missionary! I love you guys! have a great week!
