Aloha everyone! :)
This week was amazing! I know I say that they always are but this one in particular was just exceptionally amazing! I just need to go study the dictionary for more synonyms of "amazing". But in the meantime, "amazing" will just have to do.
We had the opportunity to go the Oakland Temple and to watch "Meet the Mormons". It was like a spiritual outpouring of wonderfulness. Sis. Ikegami and I had a wonderful time at the temple. It is just so beautiful there and the peace that comes from attending the Temple is just unparalleled. Heavenly Father just seriously loves all of His children.
Then laterwe had a Zone Training Meeting which actually was a lot of fun! We talked a lot about trying to get our investigators to church and Sis. Ikegami and I are working extra hard and hoping to help our investigators to progress even more.
But, the crowning event of this week was! For a number of reasons, Sis. Ikegami and I ended up having a bunch of meetings at church this past and we only left for about an hour in between to go out and do something and then when we finally left the church building, it was dinner time. Haha! But that's not the important part. The great part comes in that "in between" hour we had!
We went and visited a lady who is not a member of our church in a nursing home. We visit her about every week and sing for/with her hymns. Anyways, she is one of the most hilarious people you will ever meet and we love singing with her. So we visit with her for a little bit and then begin singing. Part way through one of our songs a man comes in and then when we finish he started saying some not so great things. We just kind of smiled and the woman we were visiting just kind of looked at him and was like, "Uhm, can you stop? I want them to sing." She then closed her eyes, and began singing the hymn, "I Need Thee Every Hour" to herself! Hahahaha! It was pretty funny! But totally great. Haha. So sassy..in the best sense. I just loved it! Haha! Totally made my whole day! Especially because she's not a member of the church and she totally just backed us up! So great!
Ah man...missionary work at it's finest. So fun! And I get to do it everyday! What could be better?
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Can't wait to tell you all about Elder Pino of the Seventy who's coming to visit this week! I'm so excited!
