Just want to let everyone know that I am happy and well. There have definitely been a lot of challenges this transfer. But the other day as I was pondering everything that has been going on, I thought came to mind. It was "without these challenges you can't grow." A lot of the shimai have been having issues lately and all I want to do is solve everything for them, but I can't. And that is why. We have to have these problems to grow. D&C 122:7 is now one of my favorite scriptures. It is so powerful and has brought a lot of comfort. And truly, all of these things are for my good. So there is the truth on how I have been feeling lately :) I am happy and well, just always learning!
In other news, I had a celestial kingdom reunion experience on Saturday. We had our second music concert and it was at Atsubetsu. I got to see old investigators, members, NAs and...missionaries. Nanjo shimai came to watch!!!!!! I had no idea she was coming and when I saw her in the hallway I screamed and was so so so happy. That was probably one of the happiest moments yet. I was so surprised. Another shimai [sister] and another choro [elder] who went home recently also came. It was such a great concert and will probably be on youtube soon :)

Life is good. All is well. Transfer calls came early for me (STL stuff). It's still top secret but I'm not transferring. I'm staying and I have a new companion. Nihonjin! So there you go :)
Church is true! Jesus is the Christ and I love this gospel!
Love you all!
I sent a similar picture like this almost a year ago. We found her housing and shoveled snow for her. Her baptismal date is in April!
