This week was full of a lot of goodbye`s, Hello`s and Probably-see-you-later-but-nobody-really-knows`s. We had a birthday party for Malone Shimai and Parmley Shimai/a goodbye party for me, Parmley and Chapman Shimai. It was so fun!
These people are golden, I love them. I cant wait for the chance to come back and go on splits in Iwakuni!
Ube is super cool! Me and Akuta Shimai are super busy because we inherited all the Elders investigators and contacts because the shut down the Elders in Ube. Its kind of cool that so many sisters are coming out in the mission, but its kind of hard to adjust to the lack of elders too. This is a great place! I`m so lucky I get to end my mission in this area. So the past few days ,I was really thinking about a transfer theme for myself. My last one. What does the Lord want me to focus on? How should I live out these next weeks as his servant? I actually came across an awesome scripture.
Jacob 4: 71-73
And the Lord of the vineyard said unto them: Go to, and labor in the vineyard, with your might. For behold, this is the last time that I shall nourish my vineyard; for the end is nigh at hand, and the season speedily cometh; and if ye labor with your might with me ye shall have joy in the fruit...
And it came to pass that the servants did go and labor with their mights; and the Lord of the vineyard labored also with them;
I know the Lord is with me wherever I go. He watches over me and every soul on earth. He especially has his eyes on his missionaries. We are not alone. He`s by our side everyday, every second, every rejection and slammed door, he is there. He doesn`t leave us. I cant testify of that from experience. I know this is his work and I`m so honored to labor along side the Master.
Love you all!
