The weather has been up and down. It snowed one day in November, but it's very rare to snow in Mito. And if it does, it's not until January. Today and yesterday was rather warm, like spring.
We got a new investigator this week. Her name is G*****. She's awesome. She's a grandma and we met her three weeks ago on the train, but never got her contact info and then one night while biking home, I saw a lady walking in the corner of my eye and felt we needed to stop her and it was her. She thought it was a miracle. We visited her shop in Hitachitaga (it's far) and we caught her at the perfect time. We taught about the restoration of the fulness of the gospel and the Book of Mormon. I felt the spirit working through me as I testified of the truthfulness of the gospel. I'm very glad for Sister Shoji and her teaching skills and Japanese. We were happy after leaving her shop, with a Book of Mormon and a commitment.
Something that I learned recently, and I don't know if this will help you personally, but prayers have to be followed with faith and effort (faith in action). Our other two new investigators: One is T*** and not really interested right now and the other is suddenly busy all the time and pregnant so we are waiting. :)
Like in D&C 9:7-9, We ponder in our hearts the questions we have and then we ask God if it be right, if the answer is right then we will feel it in our hearts with a burning.
