Wow the wind has been crazy!!! Like I thought it was a bad last month.. This month is crazy!!! The wind is crazy!!! We went to eikaiwa on Monday night and literally the wind just pushed us the entire way home I think I only peddled when we were going up a hill. We had to walk our bikes cross the bridge though.. Due to the uncontrollable wind that catches your helmet and lifts you into the air off of your bike. Even with walking our bikes the wind still about blows you over.. That almost happened to me and put it in top of walking on the ice.. Let's just say I have a nice winter coat and a helmet to catch me if I fall... But it is so fun!! It's like playing fear factor. Being on a mission in japan and probably anywhere is actually like one huge game of fear factor. But I love it because we have The Lord to help us out!! So you cam never lose because the Atonement is 100% always there for you!!
So a few of the miracles that I have seen this week are.. We had a self referral contact us. His name is Abe. He is awesome!!! We had our first lesson with him on Saturday. He use to be a pro boxer haha. He has a wife and a son. I guess he came to the church sometime last week but no one was there... Whoops... We were able to talk with him about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We talked a lot about the atonement and how you can become a new person through it and baptism. He thinks that sounded amazing. It was really awesome. Like we didn't formally invite him to be baptized, he like asked when could he get baptized. He is so awesome. He started reading the Book of Mormon and praying, he came to church on Sunday for all three hours and said that he loved it. Please pray for him. I don't want satan to tempt him, even though I know he probably is. pray that he can withhold satans temptations and receive baptism in March!!
We met with this kid who is 18. He loves service and everything about it. He is so awesome, he has like so much figured about life already. I really admire that. He made me remember youthlinc and Shriners hospital. I miss doing that kind of service. Even though I know that this is the best service that I could be doing with my life. I miss doing that kind of service!
The temple today was so great, I just love it. You two need to come to it. The celestial room is amazing. It is so beautiful. I miss going to the temple as often as we did and I miss going with you. But I am so happy that I am able to go. Poor grandma I am so sorry that she is having to have surgery again. I
will be sure to pray for her so much. I am so sorry for her. Tell her to
stay strong and to keep up the faith. She will be fine, I know she can recover from all these things. Thank you for the package!!! I loved it. It is just what I needed. I love the sweater!!! It is darling. I have been wanting one like that!! And candy hearts you know those are my favorites. And let's be honest hugs are so much better than kisses :)) thank you so much for it. So I got a package from gran. That was so nice of that cute couple missionary to send me that. They sound like they love their mission. I am so happy for them. I emailed gran a video... So please make sure she checks her email so she can watch the video. It's from my iPad and she should open it on her iPhone so she should have no problem with watching it!! Just please make sure she can see it! ありがとうございます。 I love you so much :) Xoxo ブラウン姉妹
