Maybe she will...? (June 15, 2015)
Once upon a time, my companion was reporting our work for the week via telephone to our beloved District Leader Wheelwright Choro Sama Sama, and he asked us about our finding efforts. Sisrer O described our finding efforts and he told us to explore a variety of finding methods using our talents. "What talents?" we asked, because we are sassy and our District Leader is a saint and okay with our shenanigans. He began talking and then stopped and said, "Well, you know, you guys are smart." And my sassy soul came out as I considered the fact that I'm still pretty clueless (although I feel loads more capable now than I did six weeks ago, thank heavens), so then I said, "Imma punch him in the face." (I'm still a piece of work, as in a work in progress, don't worry, I'm on my way, I can go the distance. I'll be there someday...)
Aaaaaaaand then my companion told our district leader that's said then, so I started laughing and he told her to kick me if I was on the ground. Sister O (who is Japanese but good at English because she spent a year and a half in Hawaii) says in her cute little accent, "Maybe she will kill you someday."
And then I was almost on the floor, it was way funny:D
ANYWAY invited a lady to get baptized this week, it's Kayo, the cute lady who came to General Conference! She got nervous because she feels like she doesn't know enough, but she is considering it and wants to keep learning. Prayers would be appreciated, I love this family so much!
One thing I learned this week is courage. It was pretty scary to ask Kayo about baptism, and we also had a few bold questions and bold testimonies, but it is in my heart that as people, it is our privilege to stand with surety.
This email is pretty random. But, it was a good week. I love you all!
