Mom and Dad Okay I don't even know where to begin This week was so amazing We spent so much time with Jazmin She is amazing. I can't wait tell she gets baptized. It will probably be the best day of my life. This week was her birthday. We went to lunch on Thursday (it was her birthday) we went to this place called yakiniku. It is a buffet. The best part about it is, it's basically a meat buffet. There is all this raw meat. And you can choose which kind you want and then you take it back to your table and there is like a grill in the middle of the table and you just cook it right I front of you. Oh my gosh it is so good.
Anyways During lunch Jazmin says, "so I have been praying a lot lately and I have been asking god when should I get baptized and asking him if this is the right thing for me." And guess what she got her answer. She then told us.. "I got my answer and I want to get baptized as soon as I possibly can. I know that this is the right thing for me to do" oh my gosh I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I wish I had it recorded so I could just listen to her say that over and over and over again. I was So happy!!! Like no one has ever said that to me. That's like the best you want to hear as a missionary but it just happens so few times. After she did that there was just like a silent pause. I look at Clark Shimai and then a Jazmin and them all I could say was "baptism rocks" haha I had like word vomit it was terrible. I just blurted out the first thing in my mind. It wasn't like I know this is what god wants you to do or anything testifying like that. It was just baptism rocks haha.
This week we have been working so hard and so close with Jazmin we have seen her every single day of the week haha. She came to church on Sunday in the pouring rain. I know how much this means to her. She is amazing. Next week well the 24th after church she is getting baptized. I am beyond thrilled for her. She has been the biggest example to me. Even though I am the missionary she is teaching me so much and setting such a great example for me! I can't wait tell next week! I can't wait for her to taste a bit of heaven! The miracles are happening all around me. I am so thankful for that. Well the news you are waiting for.... So this week I am transferring. I am moving to Urawa it is in Saitama ken. Haha eve though you don't know where that is... I am so stressed and heart broken. I have to train a brand new missionary. What a huge responsibility... I am so nervous it really scares me. I am so nervous. I hope that my new companion is nihongin. So on Wednesday I have to move back to Tokyo and them Thursday I will be finding out who my new companion is. This is all so crazy. I am so devastated that I am going to miss jazmins baptism. But I know god has the biggest picture and this is his will!!! Have fun at Cali! Can't wait for next year!! Love you all so much!!
