This week was another wonderful one! Our lovely investigator is getting baptized this weekend and we are so excited for her! She is just great and I am so blessed to have met her! She had her baptismal interview yesterday and we were talking to her beforehand and it was just so tender. She was really nervous about it and we explained to her that she has nothing to be worried about. Just to reassure her even further we "re-reviewed" the questions for the interview with her and she bore such a powerful testimony to us about each gospel principle. So of course, Sis. Ikegami and I were smiling from ear to ear and she told us she used to get mad when people did that. She was like, "at first I didn't get why all you people would smile when I started getting emotional but it's such a happy crying." To which she then started describing how she feels the influence of the Holy Ghost in her life! It was a pretty glorious moment. Definitely worthy of being on The District.
This week has been so full of amazing little tender mercies and miracles. We had people that we hadn't see in a while call us and ask us to come and visit! Haha! We bother and bother and bother with no response and then they call and ask us to come! The Lord seriously works in mysterious ways!
Then this week, I had yet another hilarious moment! At least this time it wasn't out in public almost falling into people on a bike or something...it was just in our apartment. So we were just all talking and one of the hermanas quotes something and I'm sitting there racking my brain trying to think of what scripture she just quoted. Meanwhile, everyone continues with the conversation and the same sister points out that she just quoted from Pride and Prejudice. HAHA! She quoted Jane Austen and the only literature I thought anybody could quote from was the scriptures. Hahaha! Only a missionary would think that! HAHA! It was pretty hilarious! Maybe..it was one of those you-have-to-be-there moments but I thought you'd all appreciate that anyways!
I'm so excited for this week! It so bittersweet! We have a baptismand this is Sis. Ikegami's last full week in the mission field and it's surreal to see her go. 18 months felt like so far away at the beginning of my mission but now it's just gone by all too fast. Seriously too fast. I'm starting to experience this weird kind of emotional constipation. I really don't know what to think! Haha! Well, have a great week everyone!
