And it feel so good.
SHO, after tragically saying goodbye to the Papenfuss Shimai Monday I stayed he night in Meito and picked up Sister Rogers in Nagoya Tuesday. It was so weird and cool to be back together again. She described it as, "being born (trained) for two transfers, dropped off at to the babysitter (new companion), and then back again now that her mother (me) is done vacationing for the summer up North (Nagano)."
But we've been having way too much fun cracking the lame jokes we've saved up and making new goals to ROCK as missionaries. We hope.
We taught a total of FOUR lessons under 15 minutes this week. Hooray! Ha ha no one. NO ONE could/wanted to meet because it was a holiday this weekend called O-bon. It is to respect the ancestors who has passed on. Really cool!
HoWeVeR, we went back down to Nagoya Thursday night for Mission Leader Council on Friday. It was definitely the highlight of the week! President and Sister Ishii gave great lessons on the Atonement. The Assistants also prepared some very motivational training. The. We had an Atonement testimony meeting which was so special! The spirit was reallyreallyreally strong. I love the missionaries I serve with! I am so grateful they and other people around me have the light of Christ and His attributes, so I can learn a little about Him, through them. The Atonement is real, and it's for all of us!
11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
Alma chapter 7
Love you, thank you for being missionaries!
Stripes on stripes on stripes.
