Tuesday while we were housing we knocked on the door of this christian girl. We talked about our views and about God. After talking for a bit, I asked her if she`s ever heard about Joseph Smith (Which I almost never ask. Nobody knows who that is.) but to my surprise she said she did know and that she`s researched the church before! We made another appointment and are so excited to teach the restoration!
I met one of our investigators Hata-san for the first time. Taufaga shimai has only met her one other time, but we had a lesson in the hospital with her and it went super good! She believes in God and loves Christ and is already in 2 Nephi in the Book of Mormon!!! She was so receptive to our message of the restoration, listening and asking questions. Honestly I'm just use to people turning us away before we get any word in. But then after we committed her to read a Book of Mormon Chapter, she asked if she could come to church with us. Ummm.....YES! Yes you can. I think we can allow that. ;D
She came to church for the first time and had a good time. She was even writing down notes in our Gospel Principals class about God is our Heavenly Father. It was such a miracle seeing that!
But as I was taking of my shoes, I noticed something at the bottom. I looked and there were two sheer cut, deep holes in the bottom of my boots! What the heck? I had never noticed them before. I down know where they came from. That part of my shoe doesn`t even touch the ground. And my bike pedal couldn't of done that. I looked at them and almost started to cry.
But through this little unexpected experience I could feel my Heavenly Fathers love for me. I know who he wants me to be. Right now, Sister Stevenson is a pretty decent person. But decent is not what our Father has in store for any of us. He wants us to become like his son. Like the Savior. It wasn`t easy for him to become who he is so it`s not going to be easy for us either. I`m so grateful to have had my Heavenly Father and Savior throughout this time here in Japan.
I love it. And I know this church is true. I know Ive said that my whole life, but after being out here, I have my own experiences and adventures to back up that statement.
It is true.
Love you all!
