Andddddd we're back. Hey everyone. It's me. Still chillin' in Japan and loving every second of life. LEGIT MISSIONS ARE SO AMAZING. I got my death letter from my mission president this week basically telling me this was the last stretch, so put it all out there and give it all to the Lord... Not gonna lie. When I got this email I kind of wanted to throw up knowing my time was coming to an end in just a few short months.... But this also gave me an opportunity to recommit myself to the Lord, and as I have done so, I truly can say I have never been happier.
So there you have my soap box... Hahah! Now. For the MIRACLE OF THE WEEK! This one goes out to my cute investigator Kiriko ちゃん. She is currently 20 years old and has been investigating the church for about a year. We met this week and talked about baptism. She has been way nervous about it, but we committed her to pray to God to know when she needed to get baptized. Now, this was on Wednesday, and when we texted her to follow up on Thursday..... No response. Uh oh.
|Kiriko chan!! YAYAYAYAYAY|
Fast forward to Sunday. Kiriko doesn't show up for Sacrament Meeting and we were wayyyy stressed. BUT just in time for Relief Society she walks in. We were way lost. Butttttt. As we sat down with her after church to talk about what had happened, she told us she had been thinking nonnnnn stop about baptism ever since we talked and had been praying so hard. She had an idea. Maybe if she went to another church and felt the same good feelings she felt at our church, she would know it's not time for her to be baptized... So that's just what she did. She went to another church on Sunday morning. But to her surprise, when she went, she just felt this hugeeee strong feeling. Something to the effect of "This isn't your place sister friend..... GET TO YOUR OWN CHURCH!"
As Kiriko was telling us this she was in tears. She said that this was the first time she felt like she had actually received an answer from her Father in Heaven. AMAZING. GOD IS REAL AND HE WILL ANSWER OUR PRAYERS. My testimony of that was definitely strengthened this week.
THE CHURCH IS TRUE
