This week started off with a bang with Zone Conference. It was fun, because President Wada came down and we got a lot of great spiritual sustenance! There was one thing though that was really embarrassing. So, I didn't know, but we were all supposed to memorize the Firs Vision in Japanese by the time of the conference. But, I had never received that information. Of course, I had a little memorized, but not 100%. So it turns out he called out two people to recite the First Vision. And out of all the people, he calls on me. Of course right? So I get up there, and I tell the President that I didn't have it memorized, and he said that was okay, and that everyone would help. So I led the entire zone in reciting it, and then had the opportunity to bear my testimony about it. That was a lot of fun. Needless to say, I had it memorized by the next day. :) And then, right after zone conference, we got to go on splits! So I had the opportunity to serve in an area called Shonan! I served with a great missionary named Elder Wallace. He is so smart, and such a great missionary! I'm so grateful for the opportunity that I had to serve with him! I'll attach a picture with him.
Yesterday, we had the opportunity to go visit our less active friend who lives up in the mountains, but this time, we went with a member, who was able to drive us, so that was a blessing, but we got up there, and we were able to share a message with the husband and his wife! They were so happy! They really want the Gospel in their lives, but they are so busy. I hope we can find a way to help them.
Today, we had a fun P-day! We went to Yokohama, and ate at the one Mexican food restaurant in our entire mission! That was a blast! After that we came back to Odawara, and ate giant parfaits! It was great! I'll be sure to include pictures!
I love you guys!
