There's nowhere I'd rather be! Week 16 - Nagasaki

Monday July 27, 2015

This week was great! We met a lot of cool people on the street! Everyone is super busy though because of the end of school, lots of tests and such! 

We had an FHE (family home evening) activity with the Branch last Saturday. We played a bunch of silly games, like spot the difference between two pictures, and walk around chairs with a plastic egg in a spoon, and put a puzzle together as a group. It was so adorable!! And as I looked around at the maybe 12 members that were there, I just felt this warmth in my heart for them! I love them so much! and I know that Heavenly Father loves them so much! And I feel so lucky to have this opportunity to be able to share God's love with the people around me in Nagasaki. Every day, that is what I try to do, is help people feel that God is there and He loves them! I love being a missionary so much! One day this week, while we were out talking to people, I just had the thought, "there's no where I'd rather be than right here right now" And sure it's hard sometimes, but honestly this is exactly what I want to be doing with my life right now. I am learning so much about myself, about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, about their love for everyone. It's great. 

I've also been reading a lot of previous Conference Talks. It is amazing, the power of the testimonies of the leaders of this church! I know that they are called by our Savior Jesus Christ to testify to the world of His truths! I encourage everyone to review conference talks! 

Love you all!
