Ha so we taught our teacher/investigator for 25 minutes all on our knees
like Japanese would. Okay, have you ever tried kneeling like an Asian for that
long??? Your. Legs. Kill. I was doing fine, teaching the lesson, then 15 minutes passed, my legs decided to be non-existent. I couldn't feel them! Try it, you'll
know what I'm talking about. Ha then later that night our district had a
kneeling competition. We all kneeled in a circle and read the Book of Mormon in
Japanese. We sounded so pathetic. The Elders, bless their hearts didn't last for
more that 10 minutes. It hurt so bad! We decided that whoever flaked out, would
have to speak only Japanese for a day. I got second place and didn't have to
speak only Japanese. I was pretty proud of myself. 39 minutes! That's almost a
full lesson! Yosh! Last weekend was great! General Conference at the MTC is amazing! I've never gotten so much out of General Conference! If it's one thing I've learned this week it's that personal revelation is REAL! Now, to me, I think, "Ugh duh Amber, you received your answer to go on a mission from personal revelation." But it just reaffirmed what I knew. We can receive personal revelation. If we have a question, any question at all, we can receive an answer. If you go to General Conference, or re-watch it with a question, you'll get an answer. The cool thing is that the speaker can be talking about one thing and the spirit telling you another. The spirit is cool like that. The spirit can tell you a lot more that what you're ears are actually hearing. And once you hear the spirit, write it down. We show Heavenly Father we're willing to act on that answer when we write it down. It's awesome!
answered one way or another. I felt so refocused and re-energized to do this
work! One thing I wrote down during I think the General Woman's meeting was the lyrics to a child's prayer. But when they sang the song, I kind of imagined the lyrics like this,
Pray, I am here.
Speak, I am listening.
You are my child
My love now surrounds you
I hear your prayers
I love you children
Of such is my kingdom
The Kingdom of Heaven
I love that. Because our Heavenly Father does want us to know these truths. He does listen. He does love us. I can't wait to tell the people of Japan that truth.
Umm ... oh ya. Vocal Point came to the MTC to sing Sunday!!!! They were so great! I got to talk to and meet Treavor, Jake and Parker! It was so great! Sorry, out of time! I love this gospel and love being apart of this work!!!
