Got a pretty short letter from Alex again today, but several photos. He took two of the photos and the others are from an investigator who shared them with Alex and his companion. Then Alex sent them to me.
Life is always sunny, even at night, when you've got the light of the gospel truth with you! It's easy to forget about, but you can always be happy as you obey God's commands.
My scripture of the week is Alma 26:30, "And we have suffered all manner of afflictions, and all this, that perhaps we might be the means of saving some soul; and we supposed that our joy would be full if perhaps we could be the means of saving some." This was the attitude of Ammon and his brethren, and it was the attitude of Jesus Christ Himself when he suffered everything if he could just save one soul. So, I think it's important to remember.The kanji of the week is: 足跡 pronounced "ah-she-ah-toe" and means foot print.
Monday was not that eventful as usual, and we were able to find someone to talk to and set up an appointment for today with. Hopefully he read at least part of the Book of Mormon we gave him.Tuesday we did a lot of finding, and also visited a less active, and a friend to the missionaries that lives close by to the less active. They're going through a hard time, so I think it was good for them to talk it out with us. Hopefully they can find peace soon.
Wednesday we did more finding, and then in the evening we went to English class. We were talking for a long time afterwards with one of the students, and had a great conversation about life with him. We also found out about a Tai Chi place from him, and said we'd go do it with him.
Thursday was weekly planning and more finding. We met with some potential investigators, but they're busy with tests, so we can't really meet with them. In the evening we tried to find the Tai Chi place but couldn't find it, so we posted some English class fliers, and also went and tried street contacting.
Friday we had a zone training meeting, and that went great. I always learn so much, and receive revelation from those meetings. We went back home, studied, and then did--can you guess: more finding.
Sunday was great, because we had an investigator who's getting baptized next week in another area come to our branch. He was really great, and showed how the gospel of Jesus Christ can truly change people into amazing people. The rest of the day was studying or finding.
Lots of finding this week, but it's been great. God provides, and I trust that He will further His work in His own time. I just need to keep my faith. I hope you all have a great week! Love you all!
