Week 15 in Nagamine

Hello :)
This week was so great! Me and sister Parmley have just been running
back in forth to lessons all week which is basically the dream mission
life. It's been so good. This next week we have so many lessons
planned we barely have any time to actually go out and talk to people
but we are going to try our best to make time. It's really been so
awesome. Our 3 main investigators are all progressing really well.
They all have their own concerns but they really are doing so well.
It's been slow, but still very good. I'm so excited to see them every
time we have lessons with them. Yesterday as we were out talking to
people, we knocked on this door, and I start hearing Ariana Grande in
the background and so when the girl answered the door I got really
excited and asked her if this was Ariana Grande and then she got
really excited because we are Americans and so we started talking
about music and how she loves one direction and Justin Beiber even
though she doesn't understand the lyrics. It was so fun! She is 22
with 2 kids!! Which is sooo rare in Japan. Her and her husband are so
cute though. Anyway, she invited us in and read out of the Book of
Mormon and loved it! So we gave her one and talked about eternal
families and we are going back to visit her on Tuesday. I'm really
excited about her! Her name is Yuuki which means courage :) Anyway, I
am way excited about this next week to see how all of our lessons go.
I don't know how we are going to fit everything in but I'm so excited!
Oh also, one of our amazing members that comes to lessons a lot
invited us over for dinner tonight. I seriously love our members so
much. It's going to be so hard to ever leave Nagamine. We have been
doing lessons with members a lot so we have gotten really close to
them. Yesterday a member pulled us aside and asked if she could just
talk with us for a few minutes because she felt like she hadn't talked
to us for a while (and because she wanted advice how to share the
gospel with her other Christian friends...what!!?) I just love it
Anyway, love you guys!! I hope you have a great week!
