This week has been way busy. Miyazaki is such a prepared area. We always have people to visit, we barely have time to knock on doors. It`s such a blessing!!!We had a lesson with Nozaki-san. She is sooo golden. Yesterday she was telling us how she loves to come to church and hear everyone`s talks. She`s only been to church 3 times and the ward has pretty much already adopted her. They ask her for your number and invite her to activities all without us telling them. She even stayed after church for and hour for chior practice! If you just walked in, you`d honestly think that she was just another member. Miyazaki ward is the BOMB. They are the picture of member missionary work, I love it!
So last Saturday we had a REAL Typhoon!!! (as opposed to my not-real typhoon in Chikushino) Ya the wind was crazy. We stayed inside pretty much all day.Language update: Yup Im still not fluent. ;) Nah, having a japanese companion has helped a lot. I`m already starting to respond more naturally in japanese instead of thinking about it.
So this week during personal study, I decided to whip out my Childrens song book. I was just flipping through it when I came on a song. I literally haven`t given this song a second thought since Primary, but I think it`s amazing. Do you remember this one?
How could the Father tell the world of love and tenderness?
He sent his Song, a new-born babe,with peace and holiness.
How could the Father show the world the pathway we should go?
he sent his son to walk with menon earth, that we may know.
How could the Father tell the world of sacrifice of death?
He sent his Son to die for usand rise with living breath.
What does the Father ask of us? What do the scriptures say?
Have faith, have hope, live like his son, Help others on their way.....
What does he ask? Live like his Son. This song is so simple, but it is full of truth. God loves us so much. He wants to show us the way. I meet people everyday who don`t believe in God. They ask where is the evidence? People have asked me, If God loves us, why doesn`t he answer our prayers? Why doesn`t he show himself to us?He does love us. By sending his Son as an example for us, he did answer our prayers. Christ is the way. He is the way to true happiness. I love this gospel and know it`s true.
