This week has been a week of fun.
Sister Sticht is way cool and way fun. We have tons of fun together and we are already seeing lots and lots of miracles together. I am glad she is my companion.
She has so much desire to work hard and see miracles and baptisms. This week we set a baptismal date!! So excited! It is for Eri. It is for April 5. So about two months away which is the perfect amount of time. She is way nervous but way excited so please pray for her so that she can get baptized on that date! It was weird saying goodbye to sister combs, but like normal at the same time because like I feel like I will see her again so it is all good. For transfers marina Dorff drove us to the mission home so that we didn't have to ride the train. It was fun talking with her. She has so many funny mission stories. I can't wait tell I get to tell you all about mine haha.
This week we went with our Chinese investigators Han to a really good Chinese place. Like it was so Chinese. The people there like all spoke Chinese and everything was just Chinese even all the customers. At this place you could order blood soup. Gross. Or you could order roasted butterfly cocoons. Don't worry I didn't eat any of that. Cool news, this transfer we found out that two apostles will be coming to our mission and doing a conference. Elder Ballard in February and Elder Nelson in March. I am way excited for that.
On Sunday we went to visit a less active member. And like normally we just meet her at like a food place or something. But this time we went to her house and just knocked on the door and guess what! She was home and she even invited us in. It was so cool. I was like oh my gosh this never happens! Like so surprised ha. So we went in snd had this way huge lesson with her about so many good church thing. But it like makes me so sad because she told us basically when it came down to getting married it was like either choose to marry someone not mormon and be kind of judged by all the members or just don't get married. I guess there weren't many options for her to choose from. Options being men... So she chose to marry someone not mormon and that just kind of started the ball rolling. It was crazy though. She told us all bout her favorite parts of the Book of Mormon and everything. Like she remembers so much.. But it like breaks my heart because she knows of the truthfulness of the gospel and the joy it brings in life and she just doesn't have it now and now she has a daughter and just like is holding her back from the knowledge. Like she hasn't taught her daughter any of it or anything, so I just have to say thank you mom and dad. Thank you for raising me in a house where the gospel is. Thank you for giving me a chance to learn and grow and gain my own testimony. I am so grateful for it. It is something I will hold and cherish forever.
Japan is great and the people here are great as well. I love being a missionary so much! Have a good week! XOXO
