Transfer 3 week 4
So you're probably wondering why you're getting an email two weeks in a row. Was there a mistake? Nope. Most of you probably don't read this anyways hahaha buuuuut I'm emailing again because my companion emails his mom all day on pdays and I get bored. So here I am 😅
Aaaaanyways, this week was pretty good! We had a Koukan with the Zone leaders and the Elder I exchanged with was way awesome. He just gave me some advice with some issues I've been having with my companion and also gave a well needed pep talk.
But I have two stories for you this week! Both miracles, but one is a little better than the other ;)
So this week we were walking around umeda (downtown osaka) and I saw a person with a naruto shirt on. Heck yeah, I love Naruto! Hahaha there is a reason I was called to Japan, after all ;) but I walked up to this dude and started talking to him about Naruto and stuff. Way cool guy. Somehow turned a conversation about ninjas into a conversation about Jesus and we exchanged lines and he wants to meet again 😅 I really do have the power of God and anime on my side.
And now the better story ;) so we were just walking by the church when this name (Jerry) popped into my head. All I could think was, "wow how weird is it that the name Jerry is stuck in my head right now" but I started to feel like really anxious everytime I thought about the name. So I looked up the name Jerry in my area book (it's the record of all the people missionaries have taught) and I saw that we were walking right in front of a previous investigators apartment. What was his name? Jerry. That was pretty spooky hahaha so we walked up to his apartment and found out that he actually moved back to Ghana like 2 years ago, but we had a real nice talk with his wife (maybe they're divorced??? I don't really know what was up with that hahaha) and set up a return appointment. I looked her up in area book, turns out that the missionaries were about to ask her to be baptized but couldn't get in contact with her! And we GOT IN CONTACT I cannot tell you how exciting that is!!! So basically the spirit is REAL and if you ever have a thought you don't understand, maybe do something about it. You never know what miracles God is waiting to show you. Yeah.
Anyways that's pretty much it. My companion is still emailing his mom, but thanks for helping me kill some time ✌🏿 hope y'all have a good week. You're all pretty cool I guess so you deserve it ;)
Love you! Or at least I love most of you!
Pics: me and my best friend Nagaoka Kyoudai. We're pretty cute I think.
Ramen with my district. It was pretty ok but I guess they are too 👍🏿
Sunset on the 42nd floor of the most expensive apartment building in Osaka 😎 kind of a big deal 😉
