This week was really great 🙂 We were able to find another investigator! The funny thing is is that her name is Nakamura Yuki, which is Nakamura shimai’s last name, and Konno shimai’s first name.
This week we had a lesson with our investigator named Hikaru. We went to lunch with her and a member. Last time we had talked, she asked what kind of food I like. I told her of the Japanese food that I like, which is food that you have at a normal restaurant. She thought that I probably liked traditional Japanese food too. The food was all really weird but I had to eat it. We were able to have a good lesson with her about the Plan of Salvation. She doesn’t have a ton of interest yet but, she listened intently to our lesson 🙂 It was really great that we were able to go with a member because they were able to become friends. I learned that its really important which member you ask to come to a lesson. All members are good but, if they have the same experiences as the investigator or have similar personalities, it can help the lesson a lot.
A few weeks ago, a member took us out to lunch, it was really expensive, and she is always buying us food. To thank her we put on a mini concert. It was a lot of fun, and it was very spiritually uplifting. Throughout the whole thing I could just feel how much love Heavenly Father has for that woman.
Love you all!
Love, sister Thompson
Notes From Aubree:
We had a lesson with a member about member missionary work and then we went to McDonald’s together.
Have you guys read, “The Power of Everyday Missionaries” by Clayton M. Christensen?
Its a really good book. President Yamashita has us sharing it with all the members here.
Rainy season is in June
it will depend on what part of the mission I am in. February is actually the coldest.
I have to go now, I love you!
