from the hike! On Wednesday this member in our ward, Kato shimai took us to eat sushi and then took us to the store and bought us fruit! So nice! We also had a lesson with our cute investigator Mari! We taught her about faith and repentance and the importance of acting! And she committed to taking off work to come to church on the 1st! So that's way exciting!
On Thursday the sister training leaders came for junkai.... I think that's called companion exchanges in English! Anyways, it was way fun! We met some really nice people! And some
really weird kinda creepy old guys haha. But hey, it happens.
On Saturday we were having a lame day of finding. No one was listening to us and it was sad. But we knocked on this one house and this kind of grandma lady answers the door, except she's nice! And starts talking to us and then she realized who we were and was like wait a second! And goes back in the house and comes back to the door with her daughter who is none other than Chiho! One of my favorite eikaiwa students! She even went on the hike with us last week, she's the one with the hat and pink jacket! It was way cool! Then her mom invited us in and made us hot chocolate and we talked for a while. We are going over for dinner next week! Haha it was a way fun miracle!
Then on Sunday I had to give a talk! I talked about faith for ten whole minutes in Japanese! Haha that's amazing to me! We also got a new dendo shunin.. Ward mission leader... Yesterday, which was really sad, but it's okay! Our new one is way cool! He just barely got back from his mission so it will be good I think. Then after church Mitsuto, our ex- dendo shunin kidnapped us and the elders and took us to a bbq with his crazy friends from high school. It was pretty fun! Then we had a dinner appointment with a member and his nonmember friends! It was a busy day! And we ate a lot!
This week was so great! I'm way grateful to be a missionary! There are so many miracles everyday. I felt like we found so many people this week that we were supposed to talk to.
Like this one girl, she told us that she had been having a way hard time at her job and when we stopped her and talked to her she felt like God was there and aware of her! That was so cool to hear! It didn't turn into anything, but I feel like we made a difference to her and put her closer on the path to finding the gospel. We get rejected a lot everyday honestly, but it's those small moments when people accept us that make it more than worth it. I love being a missionary! There’s no word to even explain how great it is!
