Short update, because I have to dash!
This week has been an awesome one! It mostly consisted of biking everywhere and We worked hard and were able to find more people with interest in the Gospel! Success!
We had an awesome wedding reception of a couple in our ward as well! The church was filled to the brim with people, so we, the missionaries, had to go to the kitchen where all the hardworking members were preparing the cakes and treats (we helped them out by eating the leftovers). It was a great party! I was crowned with sunflowers and stuff, too!
Finally we had an amazing Stake Conference held in Shimogamo. I really liked elder Mains' talk where he talked about building Zion in our homes first, before building Zion in our wards. He talked about a "Principle of Mutuality". He explained that the world nowadays has the wrong mindset: "In order for me to win, the other has to lose". We should be careful to not let the traditions of the world intrude our homes and families, our little pieces of heaven, and apply what Christ taught instead: "In order for me to win, everyone else has to win first". If we're all turned outward, focusing on the welfare of others, the world will be a better place! Be selfless, like Christ!
Thanks for reading, friends and family! I love all of you! Have an amazing week!
