HOPE - November 25, 2013

 One of the ways we show love for those who we visit and associate with is by heart-attacking their door. This is one of the members houses-it was their anniversary this last week, and so we wanted to leave them a little surprise.

 Thanksgiving Dinner

 All-Mission Christmas Get-Together‏
 We had a Relief Society activity last weekend at our church. Activities are the best because we can bring our investigators to them! It took us a couple hours to prepare, but it was soooo incredibly delicious!

The Kasukabe missionaries had an early Thanksgiving feast with the Morishita family this last week. Sister Morishita is quite the cook and she's from America!! Her husband and daughter speak English as well. We had such a wonderful time!! I'm so thankful for everything that I have been given. God is good. So good.

Hey All!
Miracle of the week: Going away from our All-Mission Christmas Conference this past week, I went away with a sure hope with an even stronger testimony that God is preparing His people to hear the mesage of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that God leads us to his prepared people or He leads them to us. The night of the Conference, we were riding our bikes back to our apartment and got stopped at a stop light. Someone had just emailed our phone and so I was reading it. All of the sudden, I hear someone say, "Hello." I look up and there's an American lady a few yards away. Her name is Michelle. She has been in Japan for about five years now and is teaching English to Japanese high school students. We told her that we were church volenteers and she asked us which denomination. I told her that we are missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and she said, "Oh, LDS." She wants to meet again! She is very busy, but we are meeting with her tonight and are very excited to
When many people think of the word "hope," they think of a little bit of belief, but a lot of uncertainty in that belief. In the church, the word hope means a whole lot more than that. Hope is unwavering and certain.
May we all hope in good things to come.
My times up.
Good night from Japan!
