There's a new investigator that we met last week. IT WAS SO COOL!!! One of the biggest miracles on the street! So we were walking back home at night and we saw this family (now, already at night, dendouing [missionary street contacting] is kind of hard, Japanese people get scared easier). One of them said hello and we started chatting. It's was a young couple with a 3 month old baby. The mom, S_____, is from Sweden, and the dad is Japanese, named M_______. They have had experiences, miraculous ones, that just testify that God is leading them in their lives up to this special point in time. They are Christian and M_______ is a first generation Christian in his family. Sister Call, my great missionary companion, simply testified of the Restoration and how we are in Japan sharing it to everyone who will listen. Then M_______ said "Do you have time?" And we said, "Yes!" He asked us to teach him now and so we did and we went to their house which was close by, and we taught them about the Restoration of the gospel. They are elect people!! Heavenly Father lead them and us to meet!! It was an amazing lesson. They have so many questions and believe in Christ and prophets living now in this day!! M_______ said at the end that he didn't understand everything we said because it is very high level English, but he can tell that here is something different about us and he can see it in our eyes. He said we are pure and connected to God. They have strong desires to learn more!! I think the Lord just saved three souls!!! How exciting to be the instruments in finding them!!!!
I prayed that I'd be able to teach the Restoration of the gospel again before I leave Japan, because I haven't been able to do it much lately, and he answered my prayer so lovingly!! Despite how weak and unworthy I am, he answered so many prayers that day!!! It was wonderful!!! I'm still so happy!! :D
So yeah, we will be teaching them on Tuesday and then Wednesday morning is transfer days. We are still planning transfers for the Sisters in the Zone so I'm not sure what time we will leave, but we will go to the honbu [mission office] and meet the new missionaries coming in. I will meet my former trainee, Sister Madsen, and she will be meeting her new companion straight from the MTC! Then Sister Burke and I will visit members, investigators, specifically M_____ (our recent convert) We will also attend Eikaiwa [English conversation class that missionaries teach], somewhere in that time frame. These final days will also include time at the honbu, a little bit more dendouing, a special breakfast made by Sister Nagano, and, later on, a special dinner. The last day will include a meeting, pictures, and off to the airport. [Thank you Japan for the wonderful experience! So many wonderful people...!]
