Week 21 in Chikushino

Not much to write today, we had a slow week. It was way awesome, but
we got sick and had to go to the doctors for Mckenzie Shimai, so a lot
of waiting around this week. They still don't know what is going on
with her feet, so we will be going to a university hospital for them
to check it out.
Tuesday we did have zone conference which was so fun. I love Egan
Kaicho and Shimai. They are such good people! We learned so much and
I'm so grateful for people who put so much time and energy into
teaching us. It's such a wonderful opportunity. I also hit my 1 year
in Japan this week! Which is just crazy!! How did that happen?!
Anyway, on a spiritual side I have been reading in 3rd Nephi recently,
and I just love when Jesus Christ comes to the Americas. In 3rd Nephi
17 Jesus christ tells the people to go and ponder the words he has
said and is about to leave, but when he sees the Nephites longing for
him to stay, he stays and blesses and heals, basically everyone. He
also prays to Heavenly Father for them and some of my favorite verses
are 3 Nephi 17:16-17
16 And after this manner do they bear record: The eye hath never seen,
neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as
we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father;
17 And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man,
neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things
as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the
joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto
the Father.
I can't imagine how much joy they had in their hearts. Jesus had so
much compassion on them and because of his service and love toward
them, they were filled with so much joy. Jesus Christ is so powerful.
He is the perfect example of service, and love, and devotion to our
Heavenly Father. That is why we follow Him. He has showed us the
perfect way to thank our Father and to become like Him. Jesus Christ
has done everything for the world. He is the perfect older brother.
It's so amazing. I love him so much!
Anyway I hope you all have a good week! Love you!! Jesus loves you too!!
