Forgiveness is for Everyone!

Naha week 14 - wk 44 in Japan, wk 53 total

Monday February 8, 2016

This week has been totally crazy! We went to Fukuoka last Monday (didn't really have Pday) then flew back to Okinawa on Tuesday night, walked home, had dinner, then Wednesday met with both sets of Zone Leaders to plan for the two different Zone Training Meetings then taught Eikaiwa (English lessons) and a lesson with Shimoji.  Then Thursday we trained one zone, Friday another, Saturday was our only normal day this week. It was so nice to get out and talk to people after being inside planning and training and being trained!

I was thinking about someone who mentioned to me recently that they didn't feel worthy to pray.  I remembered Alma the Younger in Alma 36 and how he was terrible! Trying to destroy Christ's Church and what not, yet as soon as he reached out in prayer, he was able to receive forgiveness and strength; he ended up being an awesome missionary, complete opposite of what he was before. I know that everyone and anyone can receive forgiveness and strength no matter how unworthy you might feel. Jesus Christ knows and loves each of us individually and because of that I know He will help you!

P.S. I hit my 1 year mark last Thursday!

Really gooey mochi (pounded rice) 
that tasted kind of like Chapstick,
wrapped in a big leaf.
