This is crazy! I actually started packing today! AH! It's nuts! I thought
I'd never leave this place!Okay we've had the greatest time here at the MTC.
Easter Sunday PRESIDENT UCHTDORF came and spoke to us!!! He was so great. I love him! He talked about the resurrection. He talked a lot about how Peter the apostle changed from just a simple follower of Christ to a fearless disciple after he say the resurrected Christ. It was really great. And he related to us how Christ can change us into fearless disciples."I FEAR NO MAN." That is my new catch phrase. Courage is essential for missionary work and I need that quality.
We had a departure meeting on monday. It was awesome! They talked about how we need to have high expectation for Japan. How when we lower our expectation, we lower our effort. He talked about the promise of Japan. When Japan was dedicated for the work, it was prophesied to be one of the most successful missions to ever be in the church. That's crazy! Can you imagine Japan having as much baptisms as Argentina? Or the states? It might be in the early stages of this prophecy, but I'm glad to be apart of that great promise!
talked to us on Tuesday! That's 3 Apostles in a row! K that's not normal,
even by MTC standards. Most missionaries only see a couple of 70's in thier 9 weeks. I am sooooo blessed. David Archuletta, Vocal Point, Elder Anderson, Uchtdorf and Oaks. Goodness I could not have come at a better time to the MTC! It's amazing! And, Elder Holland said he'd come sometime in April. Idk if he will but I sure hope he does! Haha in other news my poor companion Sister Doi threw out her back. We don't quite know how but she did. It's sad and funny at the same time. We call her "Obasan" which means grandma in Japanese ;D
Well family, I know this church is true! I love this gospel and am so teach
the people of Nihon!!! 11 more days!!!!!!
