Another great week in Nagasaki! It is pretty hot now, but I absolutely love summer, so I am soaking it up! I love being outside! This week was a little bit slower, but we had a lot of good time to find people to teach! We also went to Sasebo for Junkai and saw an awesome miracle! We were truly guided by the Spirit to talk to this specific lady, who at first seemed like a normal nice Japanese lady, and she said she had met the missionaries before but did not elaborate. But then when we tried to hand her a pamphlet, she hesitated and said she had been baptized when she was younger!!! We were so surprised! I am so thankful to have been able to meet her. I know that the Lord truly watches over every single one of us, and knows exactly what we need.
We also had a really awesome lesson with our recent convert Mari. She has been feeling really stressed right now with her family responsibilities and work. We read with her the baptismal promises about bearing one anothers burdens and how part of that promise is that Christ will bear our burdens as we trust in Him. It seemed to be exactly what she needed. I am so grateful for the blessing it is to be able to know other peoples needs through the Spirit.
Today we went to what they call the Bio Park which is like a zoo but you get to go inside where the animals live! It was so cool, and a monkey jumped on my arm! (:
We met someone with a pet turtle!
