Gravity is there whether you like it or not. If you try to go against
it, it hurts. If you know the rules of gravity, you can do amazing
things, like acrobatics, or lunar landings. The same is with spiritual
truths. When we go against eternal truths, it hurts, which we call
guilt. That pain doesn't go away until you align yourself with truth.
Once you know the rules, you too, can do much more than you ever could
My scripture of the week is Mosiah 24:15 "And now it came to pass that
the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made
light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their
burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to
all the will of the Lord."

Kanji of the week is: 磁石 pronounced "Jee-shock" and means magnet.
Monday was good, but not too much to write about in the day time. At
night we visited a less active that was really receptive to the
message that we had to share with him, and it was so awesome to see
the Spirit work in him and see him want to change.
Tuesday was a lot of finding, but not much luck. We also had a lesson
with our recent convert. It was good, because we learned a lot about
his conversion story. We didn't have anything else happen after that.
Wednesday we went and biked far away. It was really good, because we
found a less active that was really nice, and that listened to us. He
hasn't come to church in a long time, and didn't know where the new
church building was. Hopefully he starts coming again. English class
Thursday was weekly, and after that we did more finding, but not much
else happened according to my remembrance.
Friday was Zone Training Meeting, and we had a great time there. It
was very spiritual, and I was glad that we could learn from great
leaders and missionaries. Then we went back to Aizu and it rained for
a long time. Not much else happened.
Saturday was splits with Elder Mathews. It was fun, although not too
much happened. We did get some good conversations with people on the
street though. Our lesson in the evening with our recent convert was
great, especially because we had a member come and fellowship him.
Sunday was great, and I always love learning about the Gospel and
about Jesus. It was a good day, and we ran into a nice man while
housing. A lot of time went to district leader things.
That's my week. I hope that you all had and will have good weeks! Love you all!
