--I am now referred to as expert trash cleaner.... unfortuante nickname, but you bet I can pull garbage out of a river with a 10 ft magic hand like no ones business #yayforservice
--Catching sick members at home in the last precious minutes before curfew and being able to be there for them when the people you originally intended to visit had moved...God's plans are better than ours.
--Running to catch buses with cute families after church. The only time I see the Japanese run haha
--Getting miracle phone calls about people wanting to come to church but then they don't :((( but it helps you realize that people EVERYWHERE are wanting to learn about Christ.
--Meeting with cute investigators for the first time. Constant prayer that they have free time to meet with us soon! 
--Housed a house because it looked American...turns out there were actual Americans living there who are protestant missionaries...go team? 
--Housed into a mom who wants to be better for her kids and wants to come to church sometime!! (biggest miracle of the week?!)
--Running into a member right after the cute mom who helped us creepily (but not really because in the name of salvation nothing is creepy or awkward right?:)) Found out the address and then we walked with her and were able to talk about so many wonderful things and then ended in finding out she fan girls about Ed Sheeran #ateam

Missions/life in general have the same pattern. You give something to help someone out and get more in return. Learned so much about that this week. We are surrounded by little miracles EVERY SINGLE DAY and what we give of ourselves makes all the difference! #justdoit #outoflove
