It was the week of Christmas…. AND IT SNOWED CHRISTMAS DAY!
I had the most insane week ever.
FIRST, Moeka San is asking her parents permission to be baptized 🙂
SECOND, We got a new investigator, Kobayashi San, and he is the sweetest ever!
holy cow Christmas and Christmas eve was sooooo fun. Christmas eve i was in the nativity set for the MTC. Truthfully it wasn’t that enjoyable, but its fun to say i could be apart of it! We also learned a new game and its the funniest thing ever. I’ll share the video with y’all. OH and we did a sister’s Christmas Eve tradition which i will also share a video below. It was the most fun I’ve ever had.
CHRISTMAS DAY! I talked with my wonderful family and it was amazing, and i love them, and I didn’t even cry!! But before that we had a special devotional with Dallin H. Oaks and his family. They all played instruments and it was amazing. It was a special spirit. Its so interesting to see how each apostle is different, but still so Christ like. Then later we had a MTC sacrament meeting with Dallin H. Oaks. That was so special. People were called on to speak in the crowd, I wanted to get called on but I didn’t, its all good, because those talks were so amazing.
We had a district secret Santa, it was so fun and so full of love. Our district is full of 8 of the biggest personalities you could ever mix together, but some how we have finally gotten it to work. I do love them and what they have taught me.
Dionisio Shimai had me!! and I had Taase Choro!! hahaha SO FUN
We also watched Mr. Kruger’s Christmas and Music in the Spoken word… and to end the day….
DAVID ARCHULETA DID A MUSICAL DEVOTIONAL FOR US!!!! AND I GOT SHAKE HIS HAND! I also got a cold the next day. So i blame him for me being sick.
His devotional was amazing, he us one of the most humble people ive ever briefly met. He is very full of love, and love for God. It was such a neat experience i cant really explain words. So we aren’t allowed to take pictures…but i took just one of the program slide show.
I got my Kanji name tag!!!! Best ever. Except I’m not allowed to wear it till japan. Haha i have 3 Kanji in my name. It means “assistant tree”. There’s probably lots I’m forgetting…. but just know I’m doing very very well 🙂
*(Mom) I HAD ASKED SASAKI SHIMAI WHAT SHE LOOKS FORWARD TO THE MOST ABOUT GOING OUT TO JAPAN:
I’m excited to meet the people. I already love them, I don’t even know them, but I know that I already love them. It’s a feeling I can’t describe, but I know it’s a feeling that God wants me to have. I’m just so excited to meet real life people and investigators.
