Well we were able to have another pretty good week here in Oogaki Japan. It is really nice outside. I love the weather. We also had a huge matsuri..or festival. It was really fun. There were so many people there. Everyone that lives in Oogaki was there. It was a way good experience. We met a less active and his friend there and talked with them for a while. It was very good. The less active friend is in turn an investigator. We will be able to meet him again this Wednesday so that is exciting. They pulled floats around and there were just so many stalls to buy things at and stuff like that. There was interesting food and interesting people. It was a great experience.
Well Book of Mormon english class is going well. People are actually enjoying it which surprised me and also they are doing their homework which is reading the Book of Mormon. Sweet!!! It is starting to make people ask questions...we are making real progress and we are now on page 10 so we have read about a good chunk of the story.
Yesterday we had a pizza party. Probably the best pizza I have had in 15 months 2 weeks and 15 days...no im just kidding but seriously it was way good. We had two investigators come as well and we actually had the weirdest/best lessons of my mission. There was a member there and he is like...I am tired of planned lessons so lets just read random scriptures. so we opened the scriptures to random pages and the first one was about charity, the second one was the introduction to the Book of Mormon which was cool. The third one talked about how if you read the scriptures you will KNOW that Jesus Christ is the Savior and the fourth was in Third Nephi and it was the Baptismal prayer. We couldn't have planned it better. I don't know if I will ever do it again but it was sweet. We were able to talk about baptism with the members and investigators and though no one commited it was way powerful. I think it was a good lesson because the investigators were losing interest and the spirit was so strong that they have more interest now!!!
So it was an awesome experience.
Keep living the Gospel...It's the way to true Happiness.
