Transporting Cupcakes by Bike is Just Interesting ( Japan Week 17)

Kita San's baptism.

Kita San’s baptism.

Monday:

It was one of our investigators birthday so we decided to make her cupcakes and take them to her. I thought it was hard to transport cupcakes in a car but by bike is just interesting. We actually got them there without any problems.

Tuesday:

We did another companion exchange. I stayed in Shizuoka with sister Fredrickson. We visited a lot of people who had been investigators when she was here. They were all super excited to see her again. We were running from appointment to appointment so that we could meet with everyone. When we got home we did planning and went to bed because we were tired.

Wednesday:

We switched back companions at Fukuroi on Wednesday morning. That morning I had decided that we needed to take our rain coats with us to the station because ward shimai and I wouldn’t be coming home till late and it might rain. So even though it didn’t look like it would I took the rain coats. Later when we were far from home, it started to rain and we felt blessed that we had the rain coats. It was just a little thing but it was definitely Heavenly Fathers guidance.

Thursday:

On Thursday morning we went to help this family clean their house and move. Their situation is really sad. The mother is blind and is getting a divorce right now. She has 4 kids all under 13 and has to work to support them. So we went with some other sisters form the Relief Society and helped them clean.

Friday:

We had district meeting in Shizuoka again, it was really good. We tried visiting our investigator Jessica but she wasn’t home. We were able to meet with a member instead though.

Saturday:

At kids English class we had 6 kids come! That has been the most that has come since I have been here. It has also been summer break so I think that is why not many kids had been able to come recently. We had dinner at a members house. She made Tacos for us, it was so good! She is really awesome and always makes American food for us.

Sunday:

The Elder’s investigator Kita san was baptized on Sunday! After he was baptized he bore his testimony. He has a very strong testimony. I couldn’t understand most of what he said but I could feel the spirit from him.

Two scriptures I have been thinking about this week are 1 Nephi 10:19 and Jacob 4:7.

1 Nephi 10:19

“For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round”.

Jacob 4:7

“Nevertheless, the Lord God showeth us our weakness that we may know that it is by his grace, and his great condescensions uno the children of men, that we have power to do these things”.

I love you all!

love,

Thompson Shimai

Today for p-day we are having a district activity making pizza and playing games and probably going to take puri kura.

They will send me a paper when I have six months left and that is when I fill it out and tell them. The new mission president will come in like June or July.

We find out on Saturday if we transfer and transfer on Tuesday.
