Something that I really felt strongly this week is that because of the
atonement that Christ performed for us, we can change. As seemingly stuck in old habits as we might think we are, there is nothing that Christ can't, if we let Him, change and make into a beautiful work of art. I've seen it in my life, on my mission, and in the lives of others. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live, and they are helping us become the best people we can become.

Scripture of the week is Isaiah 53:3-5, "He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Kanji of the week: 気象学 pronounced "key-show-gah-coo" and means meteorology Monday was busy just because it was my first in Odate. We had fun, and in the evening we did lots of housing. Tuesday we had service, which was drying old people's hair and serving them drinks. It was fun. The rest of the day was spent finding.
