We don't have that much food in the apartment at the moment, and
nothing for our usual breakfasts, and we were contemplating what we
should do. The doorbell rang suddenly, and in walked a member with a
tupperware full of food that he made saying, "I brought you
breakfast!" It was a nice little miracle, and I'm glad that he was in
tune with the spirit to help us out this morning. Thought you'd like to
know that the Lord is watching over me.
(I'm not sure why he doesn't buy more food. He has plenty of money in his account. He has become very frugal, which is a good thing as long as it's not taken to the extreme.)
His letter to everyone:
One of the talks in the most recent General Conference (which I saw this week), talked about how we can better cope with life. He mentioned that we would try and ponderize (ponder on and memorize) a verse of scripture each week. He also stated that we should try and do this in groups to see more success. So, I would like to invite all of you to join me in taking this challenge and working on it together. This week, I have chosen to ponderize 3 Nephi 9:14 "Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me." Please chose your own verse of scripture (make it have personal relevance to you to help you have a willingness to ponderize it), and don't worry about word for word memorization. Get the main point of the scripture and the reference down, and ponder on it this week. I invite you to do this for as long as you can. This week's kanji of the week is: 古川 pronounced "furu-kawa" and (spoiler alert!) is the name of my next area, which I'll be going to this next week. Monday I really don't have too much to report on. I can say that we had fun playing uno and having a spiritual message with a less active member. Tuesday we went to set up an appointment to help a different less active member who lived far away. We spent the rest of the day (not too much to be honest) with our investigator Brother Yamamoto. Wednesday we went back to the less active's house and help him weed his yard. There isn't too much of a yard (normal for Japan), but there were a lot of really big weeds, and it took awhile to get them all out. After that we went together to a restaurant, and he was nice enough to pay for a delicious ramen and tempura lunch for us. Besides that we only got to study and have English class. There was a new student in English class though, and he was pretty good at English. It was a fun class once again.
