This week was packed full of crazy miracles!!! Not like the seeing angel kind, but more like the people are telling us they want to get baptized crazy!
We were teaching our investigator Hata-san the 3rd lesson, but me and Taufaga Shimai both felt like perhaps she`s not ready for a baptismal invite just yet. The lesson went well, we taught faith and repentance and by the end of the lesson, she brought up baptism herself and asked to be baptized! Well yes, perhaps that can be arranged.;D We plan on making a date next time.
Also while we were street contacting a man came up to us and contacted us. He believes in Christ, we gave him a Book of Mormon and he came to church yesterday! He called us up and told us that he wants to become a Mormon! The lord is just preparing the hearts of the people here in Kurume,I love it!
We also had a missionary conference in Fukuoka again and I got to see Doi Shimai! I love that girl. It`s always good to see mission friends again. Our speaker was a member of the 70 Elder Whiting. He was truly amazing. The spirit was just so thick in the room. He talked about how we can change into the people we want to be literally in a day. We can go from weak to strong within that short of time through the atonement. We can all change. That is the Savior`s invitation to each of us. When the scriptures say `repent!repent!` I see the invitation `You can change!` Because of the Atonement, we can change into the people we want to be. It`s as easy as getting on your knees, praying to Heavenly Father, and committing to act.
I love this gospel and know its true!
