I wanted to let you all know that in the Nagoya Mission we were not effected by the earthquake that recently happened! Please keep those people who were, in your prayers!
This week we've seen some cool miracles!
Monday night we met with Nana chan, a less active who apparently doesn't like gaijin (foreigners), and got to know her a little bit!
Tuesday: we went housing in a huge apartment complex, where all these gaijin live! And we met Junior and his cute little family! He is from Brazil but came to Japan when he was 5 and learned English! He said he met the elders and got a pamphlet from them, then we gave him another one and he turned to the back and said that he had the book that was on the back(The Book of Mormon) we asked how he received one, and he said that a friend from work gave him one! Then he said, "I never asked him, but what makes your church so different?" That is where we taught lesson one! After, we told him that we have The Book of Mormon in Portuguese and gave him a 30/30 flyer, and a eikaiwa flyer! And made a set appointment!
Wednesday: We went back to visit Junior to give him the Book of Mormons but than his father in law came out and bible bashed us, and didn't let him have the Book of Mormon's! It was heart breaking, because you can tell that Junior still has the desire to learn more, and to find the truth! he did say he would try to come to Church sometime! Hope is NEVER lost!
Thursday: We had a koukan with the Yokkaichi Shimai, and I went to Yokkaichi with Bills shimai! It was way fun!
Saturday: TRANSFER CALLS!!! We had transfer calls today, and we both though we weren't going to get the call! but we did! I went first and I am staying in Takabata and my new companion is Knowles Shimai! She is my Doki, (someone who came to Japan the same time as you) and she was actually Carey Shimai's Companion two transfers ago!! Carey Shimai is going Komatsu! Weird!
Sorry that is all the time I really have, so I guess I will just end with a scripture!
5 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold, I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.
Love you all like always!!
Oh, what Love will then bear sway, When our fears shall flee away!
2. Lyle Shimai and I!
