Whoa, where did this week go? It feel like only a second ago we set the baptismal date and now the week is already over and we are beginning again?! And before I know it, I am going to be home, and married, and pregnant with 5 kids and I CANT DO THIS GUYS SOMEONE SEND HELP. But seriously, I tried to imagine getting married... And I couldn't do it. I think this is all a dream and one day I am going to wake up and be 6 years old again. Wouldn't that be strange?
This week, a lot of... Interesting things happened. For example, one member asked us to come to the edge of our area to meet her mother. Then, she cancelled on us... Only she didn't tell us that she cancelled on us. So we show up and wait and wait and try and try to call her, only to discover that he phone was dead. We went through a back sneaky way and found out her moms home phone number, in which we found out she canceled-not cancelled. When we got home, we were exhausted. Nothing like 2 hours on a train.
This week, my testimony of family home evening was strengthened. So many people complain about this or that about their families and wonder why they aren't closer or why their children went less-active when they didn't follow the basic direction of the church to gather as a family and learn the gospel. It is certainly a must in my own future family. No matter how difficult a course it may seem. It is simply too important to overlook.
We had another appointment where we biked for an hour just to discover that they completely forgot about the appointment. We decided just to leave them with a short message, and it went surprisingly well. The spirit was felt and seeds were planted. Also, clams were eaten. Surprisingly delicious. Lots of surprises that day. Also, exhausting.
We also ate this thing called "Takoyaki" which is delicious batter ball with a piece of octopus is the middle. Seriously delicious!! I suggest it every day of the week. Ate too many of them, to be honest, haha.
Yesterday was especially spectacular. We had a lesson with our investigator with a baptismal date and she has been praying every day! She has been feeling the power of prayer in her life and it is amazing to see it in her. She is so cute. She loves flowers and brought one of her flower plants to show to us. SO CUTE. I love her to pieces!
Today was an adventure in itself. It was district p-day! We all went and ate ramen together and then CLIMBED A MOUNTAIN to go to a science museum... Which was closed. So we just played the giant awesome playground they had. The elders were hilarious. Pictures to come.
Here are some things I liked this week!!
☀️He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.☀️
I hope that you are all doing well. Shout out to Elder Clark's girlfriend. Thank you for your patronage.
