Also thank you for the sweet package Caitlin!!
I do love getting packages and Dearelders SO MUCH!!
On sunday, we got to sing with the NashVille Tribute band!! OH MY GOSH!! It was so good!! our whole devotional was them play music! We sung "Johns Song" and "I Was Born!" So I might send my Ipod home so I could get some of those song on my Ipod?
I have loved the devotionals here! On tuesday we got to hear from Elder Echo Hawk and his wife! I'll write a quote from him next time! But It was so good!
This week was kind of rough for my doryo, but I try to serve her the best I can!! She just got her Violin here and she practiced today for the first time in two months!! AND SHE IS AMAZING!!! wow!! I felt that she was missing part of her soul and she got it back!! She played with so much feeling!! It helped her a ton!!
I learned that it is so important to rely on the Lord!! I might have not of known what she was going through, but the Lord does!! I learned that it is so important to be there for your companion and to help them know that God is always there and that He puts us through trials so we can learn from them!! There is a reason why we don't feel like ourselves sometimes! Maybe someone in Japan is going through what Sorensen Shimai went through, and through that She can help them!!
I have had so many tender mercies being here!! I have felt the Spirit so strong! I pray for the Investigators that we are teaching, and I really do feel a difference!! I know I can always rely on the Lord, because he went through EVERYTHING!!! He gets it!! He knows Life is hard!! He wants us to win!!
I feel a lot closer to my district! So thank you for your wise words!! Also Japanese is way Hard so pray for me!!! AHH!! It's good though!! Well I Love you all!! and I hope everything is great! I want a dearelder from alllllll of you!! Jodon(joke) but really!! It always makes my day!! also you can always write Sorensen Shimai if you want! Her name is Rachel Bae Sorensen, It will make her day too!! Well Aishiteimasu!!!
-Your favorite Stay Shimai!
