Goodness gracious. I can`t believe where I am right now. All throughout my mission I figured that,
`Ya, diffidently at my 2 week mark, I`m going to feel it. I`m going to feel it like a brick wall that I`m going home.` Yup... pretty sure I`m at my 11 day mark and it still doesn't feel real. I think that`s a blessing though. Helps me keep focused on why I`m here.
Anyway this is short but today was super fun! You`re gonna love this, but our friend Casey-san, took us out the whole day and dressed us up in kimonos! I literally felt like Mulan when they were dressing me all up. This lady that did mine is a pro at dressing kimono`s. You have to go to a special school to learn all the details about kimonos. We got all dressed up, and went to an english class, and I got to teach and testify to the class about my purpose as a missionary and about God and Families. After we took pictures, and had Okonomiyaki for dinner. Goodness this lady, Casey, is seriously a saint. She`s not a member, but she might as well be, she has a heart of gold. She did it all for me because she knows I`m leaving next week. It was such a blessing cuz I`ve wanted to try this out my whole mission but never had the chance till now.
I love my mission so much. I cant express that to the least degree. I love this experience. I love my life. I`m so grateful for Heavenly Father for sending me here. I love these people with all my heart and I still don`t know how I`m going to leave them. I can`t figure it out, but I`ll leave that to the Lord. This is the true church. My mission might be coming to a close but that testimony will always be there. This is God`s church on the Earth. I know it with all my heart. I know my Savior lives and that God loves us.
Till next week!
