April 3, 2017: SUPERMAN!!

Well for those you that don't know, here in japan we watch general conference a week after you so I'm sure it was great and all, but please don't spoil anything cause I am going to be watching it on my little iPad screen with the other missionaries next week.  It takes a week for all the translations to be done and put it up on the church website.    

Well other than that this week was really busy, as usual.  Monday and Tuesday we went to Sendai for a great zone conference!  It was the most spiritual conference I've ever attended.  Our training focus was on the love of the people and working with our heart and mind (spirit).   We all know love is the most powerful force in the universe, however we have to fight to not lose that because we live in a numbers drive world and it's all about getting more.  But I've found in my mission when you look past the numbers and know the face, name, job, etc the success comes and with that, the baptisms!  The key is love and with love comes the change.  In work like this we can't do it without it!  

Other than that my bike broke 3 times this week.. it's all good I'm getting a new one soon!  

Taught the less actives member who believes that Jesus is a dragonfly and same with the spirit but they are different dragon flies.  赤とんぼ = akatonbo.   
Miyuu san has been really busy, she is trying to sell her artwork and be like an entrepreneur.  She's a マンガ家 she draws Japanese style comics and apparently she is still reading and praying.  We are sending scriptures and thoughts over email!  It's great!  
Also went for the first time to Koriyama for church!  It was strange to say the least.  That place just needs missionaries there all the time!!!  

Love you all I am so thankful to have this opportunity to be in Japan and share the gospel in Japanese!  It's a beautiful language!  I know that love is powerful and because of love Jesus Christ volunteered to come to the earth to atone for our sins and make it possible to return back to the presence of our Father once again!  The book is true and the church is true!  Love you all have a good week!
