Hello from Fukuoka! - Week 6

Hello everyone! So we have transfers this week. Soooo, some crazy, やばい news: I've been called to be a trainer!! I'll be getting a new missionary straight out of the MTC! WOW, I can just say I'm nervous and excited and feel so unqualified but I know that the Lord trusts me and knows that I can do it. I can't wait to show this new missionary all the amazing things this mission and Japan has to offer. Sister Cordero is transferring to Yamaguchi and I'm so sad to see her go! We have had such a fun transfer but I know she will do great in her new area. #TEAMCORDATWOOD
Anyways, as far as things happening this week, we met a lot of awesome people and had many great lessons. Valentine's Day was a lot of fun! We had a Valentine's Day party with the young men and young women in the ward. We decorated cookies and played games and took pictures and it was so much fun! A lot of them came through and brought so many of their friends, it was awesome!
We had a great lesson with Ichimura this week too. Sister Asato came to the lesson with us and helped by bearing her testimony of when she joined the church. The Spirit was so strong in the lesson as we talked and testified of the Plan of Salvation. We committed her to baptism but she still says she needs a little more time to study and learn more. I'm excited for her growth in the gospel though.
A recent convert that we worked with helping get to the temple finally came to us and said that she wants to go and she wants to work more on her family history! It's been so cool getting to help her learn more about her ancestors and the importance of the temple too.
Anyways, not too much happened this week but I'm so excited for this new adventure that this next transfer brings! As far as a spiritual note, I have recently been reading in the Book of Mormon in the beginning of Mosiah where it talks about our relationship with God. I look back on all of the blessings in my life and I'm so grateful for all of them and I know that it truly is straight from God. Whenever life gets tough, we need to look at all of the blessings that God has given us and how He knows what we need and He knows what is best for us. If we turn to Him in the trials and hardships, we will overcome and become even better people because of it. I'm so grateful to Heavenly Father and for the wonderful blessings in my life!
