This week was Awesome!
We had a Awesome lesson Monday night with one of our investigators.
We had a tachiai, to come with us to help build kanke(relationship)
and to help teach!! We used the pamphlets we have on our Ipads and
shared one of the videos on it, and at the end of the video she was
crying, we asked her what she felt, she told us that she thought about
her Mom. We told her the importance of families! We also retaught her
how to pray, and Uchimura Shimai told her that she would pray first
and then challenged her to pray! We told her to Bow her head, close
her eyes, and fold her arms. Then Uchimura prayed. After Amen,
Uchimura shimai told her it was her turn. She said okay, then we sat
there, and she didn't say anything she looks up and said that it was
kind of hard and she was nervous, We told her it was normal to feel
like that. Then she told us she doesn't know what to say. We told her
she could say ANYTHING! We gave her examples of things she could say,
like, I really liked the bread I just ate, or thank you for this and
that! She said okay, but was still not going to pray infront of us!
But that's okay!! Maybe she will try it on her own!! But over all, it
went really well! It's all in time!!
Tuesday, we had Sports night, and I was so excited I split an apple
with my hands!! Check that off my bucket list!
Anyways, Sports night was a lot of fun! Two of the Elders PI's came
and we played Badminton. (Japanese people play it and practice it in
High School... so it's a thing!)
We had Zone Conference on Thursday. I absolutely Love Zone
Conference!, I always feel so pumped to go out and Dendo!! (
proselytizing) And I love Ishii Kaicho(president) So Much!! ALL The
After Zone Conference we had a koukan!(companion exchange) Cline
Shimai came to Fuji with me! It was so much fun! that night we had
Eikaiwa( English conversation class) and only Two people showed up!
But it was still so much fun!!
The next day we saw the coolest Miracle!
We were going to go visit a Member when I got the feeling to go a
different way. Which didn't make sense because it was a little bit
longer way, and nevery gone that way before to get to her house. But I
followed the prompting, and took a road to get to the road where I
felt like we needed to be on! We were OYMing all the way, when all of
a sudden, we pass these two Girls who don't look Japanese, so Cline
Shimai stops them and complements them on their Umbrella, I back up
and we start talking to them, We asked them where they were from, and
they said the Philippines. we kept talking, then We told them that we
teach English, and gave them Eikaiwa slips, and one of the Girls turns
over the paper and says that her mom is a member of this church! I was
like Wait What? I was thinking really hard who was philipino, and I
thought of a Less Active, I asked if her moms name is Gina, she said
yes, then I asked if she had sisters, she said yes, 2! I asked her if
there names were Erica Chan, and Aiyumi Chan, she said yes!!! It was
so cool!! We asked if we could meet again, and we exchanged phone
So she lives with her dad, and they are not members!! I know that Gina
Shimai had an older daughter, but I have never met her, or seen her
before, because she lives with her dad! It is so amazing how the Lord
works!! Even though it didn't make sense to go that way, there is
always a reason!!
Anyways, it was so much fun to OYM(open your mouth) with a American
again!! We both had so much Dendo Energy and felt super Genki(happy)
while talking to people!!
Sunday, Ishii Kaicho(president) and Ishii Shimai(Sister) came to Fuji!
We had shokujikai(Lunch meeting) with the ward!! Then had a Dendo
Fireside!! I LOVE THE FUJI WARD!! I LOVE THE ISHII'S!!! I LOVE
MISSIONARIES!!! ALL THE LOVE!!! Also mostly because it was Valentines
day!! So Literally ALL THE LOVE!! But really! We also had a YSA FHE
(young single adult family home evening!) which my companion made me
show them my different noises I can do! It was way fun!
Also if you were wondering, Japanese people do celebrate Valentines
Day, but the Girl gives Chocolate/ presents to the Guy! Then they have
White day (March 14) where the guy who received a present, gives
something back to the Girl! Yep!
Well... that's about it!!
Here is the Scripture! Helaman 5
"30 And it came to pass when they heard this voice, and beheld that it
was not a voice of thunder, neither was it a voice of a great
tumultuous noise, but behold, it was a still voice of perfect
mildness, as if it had been a whisper, and it did pierce even to the
Can I just say the Holy Ghost is Amazing! The prompting I had to go
the different way wasn't a big bang! It was really small and by Acting
upon it, we saw that miracle! Faith is a principle of Action and
power!! If we act on our Faith we will receive that power that God had
in store for us!!
I love you all so much!! I hope you had a Happy Valentines day!! Thank
you for all your love and Support!!
