Nagasaki Week 11

Monday June 22, 2015

One of the ward members gave us some tomatoes this past week, I haven't had tomatoes in so long! they were so delicious!! I miss being able to just pick them off the plant!

Last week we found an awesome girl named Yuki to teach! We've been able to have 3 lessons so far and she is awesome!! She is really excited about learning more about our church! We are so excited to teach her!
Yuki San; we found her last week & her baptismal date is July 25th!
Also, we've been teaching Kou Kun, an 8 year old whose Mom was baptized last year, and he is getting baptized this Saturday! We are so excited! It's been so fun teaching him about the gospel in such simple, fun ways! 

We also went to Sasebo for a day to go on splits with the Shimai there, it was really fun. It's cool to see how Nagasaki is different from the other places in my Zone. Nagasaki is really big, and has a lot of people walking around all the time. It's a fun place too, there's an international college nearby so we get to talk to a lot of cool college students, and we've met some from Nepal, China, Pacific Islands, Ireland, Kenya, Myanmar.  I love it here! It's so beautiful too!

A scripture I really love that I came across this week is John 14:27 Jesus says"peace i leave with you, peace i give unto you, not as the world giveth give i unto you" And the peace the Jesus gives us in our lives truly cannot be found anywhere else. There have been really hard times that the only way I have been able to make it through is because of that divine peace that He gives to everyone who trusts in Him. 

Love you all!

We went to Sushiro with a member & they literally pulled every plate off the conveyor belt! 
This pizza place uses these scooters to make their deliveries!
