"I would also like to learn Spanish, because I feel like it's long time I figured out that language."
I shouldn't laugh because I know how it is when you are immersed in another language and it affects how you think and speak in your own language.
I was happy to see that they have an investigator with a baptism date who they are working with. It's the last Saturday of that transfer so I'm kinda hoping Alex doesn't get transferred somewhere else so he can stay and continue to fellowship him as a new member. I'm sure it's hard for someone who gets baptized and then his missionaries who he knows leave.
This week was really special, because we had the privilege of spending two hours with Elder Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve, Elder Gong of the Seventy, and Elder Yamashita of the Asia North Area Presidency. What love these men, and their wives, have for not only us, but also all of God's children. Being a member of the Church for my entire life, I've always grown up seeing the general authorities on the TV, and thinking that they were so much different than us. One of the things I really learned from this meeting was that Elder Stevenson is a normal man with a special calling. God can do anything through anyone, no matter how weak, even through me. Scripture of the week is Exodus 19:5-6, "Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel." Kanji of the week is: 秋田犬 pronounced "ah-key-tah-ee-new," and is the special breed of dog that was born in Odate and the surround area.
