Things are going well in Iwakuni!! / Week #67

Konnichiwa Minasan,

Things are going pretty well. Mitchell is back so we are teaching him
again. Whether he likes it or not. Just kidding he likes it. He told
us he couldn't come to church this week because of work so we were a
little bummed, but then on Sunday morning who walks in with the
Carters but Mitchell? Miracle!

We are continuing to teach the Sakamotos and Yamamoto and we have
a new investigator Harumi San. She is a cute grandma who has a younger
sister who is LDS. And her daughter is Christian. So she knows some
things and is pretty open to what we have to say.

A member of the area presidency came and spoke to us this week. Elder
Choi (chae) from Korea. It was really good! He spoke about elevating
our thoughts. If we don't like something, we have the power to change
our thoughts. His wife also spoke about how in the pre earth life we
were on the front lines during the war in heaven. We were the strong
ones because of our testimonies of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father
and their plan. We have been prepared to come at this time and were
given special training. It was a pretty cool thought. Mostly I loved
when he talked about knowing our identity as sons and daughters of
God. If we truly understand that, then we will have confidence in
ourselves and in God. That knowledge is life changing.

It's been a good week, and we are ready for some more! Just know you
are always in my prayers!
