No time! We are going to the Zoo today!!! Woohoo!! This has to be super fast!
We have three baptismal dates and were extending a fourth this week! Thank you for the prayers!
Ah-ha Moment: The gift of tongues is a powerful gift. It is a real gift. My understanding has jumped so much in the last two and a half weeks! I understand when it is really necessary and struggle when it's not. :) The gifts of the Spirit are so real!!
Cultural moment: Children. The children here are so undisciplined! They are so abusive to each other and I realized why. The parents never get mad. They just say stop, but we all know that kids don't do that. :) It is very different here. :) I am glad I was raised in America!
Funny Moment: We were teaching a lesson to an English class student (It was in Japanese), and we were talking about the tree of life vision. I wasn't understanding much because of the topic, but i did understand one part very well. Matono choro asked the man if he wanted to eat the fruit, and the investigator straight up said no!!!!! Like immediately! I almost started laughing but that would have made matono choro mad. It was so funny though! Straight up: "No thanks!" So yeah, we are probably going to drop him; he argues and doesn't really have interest.
Spiritual Moment: No offense but most of these are so personal I don't want to share them or get very specific. I have had so many though! I would say this weeks spiritual moment would be this: I finally accepted a part of my patriarchal blessing that I had been in denial about before and I have seen so many blessings in just a week for it. Just taking that to the Lord this week in prayer was so empowering.
Next week's P-Day will be on my saturday not Tuesday. Sorry. :)
Forward pressing forward!
PS: The Yokota branch is incredible!!
