Somewhere, Beyond the Sea... (June 1, 2015)
Note: It seems Lisa is still trying to figure out how to use the iPad for e-mail...
Or rather, I don't. Last week I wrote a funny story about a giant bug and its rather untimely demise, but it appears that the text disappears. Pity.
Sorry, no super awesome pictures week, and so sorry for the ugly picture but
We had SUCH a good lesson with our two new Qs, Y and E:) E is Y's fifteen year old daughter, and they are so cute, I adore them. We taught them about the Holy Ghost, and they shared experiences they has and everything, it was a beautiful thing. We also had a few prayer and LA visit miracles, but it's a long story so I will skip it. However, I do want to say, yesterday was Stake Conference, and it was a spiritual feast. One thing I felt during conference was some lyrics to one of my childhood favorite songs--namely, Give Said the Little Stream.
Specifically, "I'm small, I know, but wherever I go, the grass grows greener still." Cute, right? But, this lesson I learned as a child rings more true to me now than ever. Like, I'm still pretty clueless on a lot of things, but that's okay; I'm still a child in my heart, but right now, where I am, I am doing what little I can, and as the world blooms and opens up with the weather, we're beginning to see the hearts of the people open up here as well. There is so much good and beauty in the world. I'm just very happy and at peace right now. There is nothing that brings me greater joy than seeing these people that I am growing to love begin to feel the Spirit of the Lord. It's a good life:)
Congratulations to those who have received mission calls recently!
I've heard a few Italys, a few Japans, Dominican Republic, Boston--Be excited! You will be a light to others:)
Please pray for Abe San!!! Baptism in Ishinomaki on Friday, the first one in about a year and I feel will not be the last this year:)
