It's hard to tell if I'm getting better at shogi, because Kurogi choro is improving at the same rate as I am now. Every game ends with me 2 moves away from checkmating him, but he's just one step ahead!
Yesterday we had one of the sweetest moments on my mission. We got a phone call from a really nice older Japanese lady in a wheelchair. She knew that we were volunteers and wanted some help going out to see the Sakura up the street from her house. So, we came over to help her outside. I got to gently push her in her wheelchair up a pretty large hill as we looked at the beautiful view and talked with her. It was maybe a thirty minute walk, during which we were able to talk to her about eternal families and temples. She kinda almost cried, and maybe I did too... It wasn't a large extravagant miracle, but it was a lovely experience and reminded me that the work of the Lord is really kindness and love.
Welp, that's it for this week's email. I'll include more details next week.
