This week went by super fast!
This week Elder and sister Ringwood of the Seventy came and spoke to us. It was really cool 🙂
Sister Yamashita also gave a talk, in all English! It was so good!
Last time we had interviews, each of us were told to pick a Christ-like attribute that we wanted to improve on. About 80% of the missionaries choose patience, myself included.
