This week has been crazy? But fun!
This week we made it a goal to hand out a Book of Mormon each day, we
got 6/7! It's been a really cool experience, and some people seemed
really interested in the book! One of them we knocked on his door, and
we told him who we were, and then we gave him a questions of the soul
paper, and gave him a Book of Mormon, he seemed really interested in
it, he opened it right up and flipped through the pages! He said we
could come again!
Another time we ping ponged at a ladies house, and again told her who
we were and then gave her questions of the soul paper and a Book of
Mormon, she said she was interested in learning more! She has no
religious back round and is very curious!
It's been really neat!
Also, on Friday, we were waiting to cross the street, but this man
came up to us on his bike and asked us if we were the missionaries! We
said yes, he then told us a really neat story. A while ago, he was on
the streets, homeless, no food, no money, he said he was pretty much
dying, when these too missionaries, (who we knew) came up to him, gave
him money and bought him food. He said that with that money he went to
a job interview and got a job! He now has money, a house and is very
healthy! Just because of these two missionaries who bought him food
and gave him money! He was so thankful for the missionaries, and said
he wanted to come to church sometime, then he left! It was so crazy!
And yet so cool!
On Saturday, we tried to fine a less actives house, but we got lost,
and so we were walking our bikes up very steep roads when we started
to hear music, we got to the top and there were these ladies, in a
garage, 3 were playing Ukuleles, 1 was playing a bass, and the other
was playing the guitar! We looked at each other and both of us really
wanted to go talk to them, so we parked our bikes and went and
listened to them, they finished playing and we started clapping! They
all looked up and were surprised! They played another song for us,
then after we just talked to them, they said that they practice only
once a month, and we asked if we could come back and they agreed! We
call them the obachan band! Haha, they seem really sweet!
On Sunday, I gave a talk in sacrament meeting, about Dendo!(missionary
work) it was so scary! Okay, probably not, but it was for me! Right
after church we had a lesson with one of our Brazilian investigators!
It was with the whole family, aka just the wife and husband and their
little boy! I sat there, and just nodded my head as Grecco姉妹 thought
them the plan of salvation! They said that it all made sense, and they
want to know more! So next time we (Grecco姉妹) are going to teach them
After that lesson we went to visit the sweetest Obachan, kamio姉妹 in
the hospital! (She had surgery on both her knees!) we were sitting
there and this other cute obachan wheeled herself in and talked with
us too! Next week, we are going there and playing a card game with
them! They are seriously the cutest! Then we booked it to another
place to visit edwardo, but he didn't answer so we rode our bikes to
the eki, and got a train to go straight to our last appointment! At
Hasegawa 姉妹s, we helped her put up her Christmas tree! Which was
Today(p-day) we got on a train to go pick our bikes up at the place
where we left them, and rode back, and got ready for the relief
The elders also came with one of their investigators, so kind of a
relief society activity? But not?
But it went well! It was a lot of fun!
I've learned this week that even though we plan for something, it
might not always happen, but I know that something better always comes
out of it! If we really show love to all those around us, like those
two missionaries that helped the guy, you never know who's life you
I am so grateful for all all of you! Thank you for everything!
I love you all!
