Another transfer is done again?!

February 29, 2016

How is everyone? Thanks for the love, emails, and prayers for the benefit of me, it means so much that I have awesome support back home in the Land of America. I'm glad the blessing went well, way to go Bry and I'm sure Merc had her looking cute as ever. Give her a but hug and kiss from Auntie Smith Shimai🤗 Carter, WAY TO HIT YOUR FIRST HOMERUN!! So proud of you, wow. 御目出度う御座います! (CONGRATULATIONS!) Keep being healthy, safe, and awesome everyone! Okay okay, the Filipina mom we met at eikaiwa is 100% a prepared soul from God. So we meet with her every Tuesday after Ekaiwa and this past lesson was the most spirit filled lesson I have ever been a part of. So we were finishing teaching about Joseph smith and the restoration right? Well we pray and ask her if she read and right when we ask she goes wait I had a experience. So she tells us that lately she had some struggles at work with a coworker who hasn't been nice to her and she doesn't know why. So she said one night she went had time so she went and read the introduction and testimonies part of the Book of Mormon and she said she loved it and it made sense but wait, the best part! She went to work the next day, and the coworker came up to her crying and apologized for everything and hoped she could forgive her. So golden said to us, I know it's from this book, I prayed read it and prayed after and the next day the miracle happened of her saying sorry. WOW! She recognizes Gods help and especially from the Book of Mormon already? Isn't that amazing? The rest of the lesson was so perfect and amazing and she will pray to know if the book is true. Which we all know, she will receive that answer. I LOVE HEAVENLY FATHER! And of course, the spirit. The spirit does the work and we just are the tool in Gods hand. So we had to do a lot of traveling this week so we did a lots of street teaching which has been awesome. The best is just getting that courage to talk to people and it works out. We were in Kobe for TTTM and we missed our bus back to Izumo. So we decided to go out and dendo of course. We taught 3 lessons to people while we waited for our next bus and oh it's so scary but so fun! So hopefully we planted some seeds for the Kobe missionaries to teach soon. Okay so I don't know if I talked about this or not but dancers parents want us to teach them English and part gospel. Well we went yesterday and wow they are my favorite people ever! They love everyone, always smiling, and want to grow closer to God. We are so excited to have a FAMILY being taught together and they can have a gospel filled home. Thought of the week: So I was reading 2 Nephi 7 and while reading verse 7 and 8 I just had an AH HA awesome moment. So I was reading it and it just clicked, we need confidence. They say: 7 For the Lord God will help me, therefore shall I not be confounded. Therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall notbe ashamed. 8 And the Lord is near, and he justifieth me. Who will contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is mine adversary? Let him come near me, and I will smite him with the strength of my mouth. If we have confidence in the Lord and ourselves then we can stay as far away from Satan as possible or as needed. It can be hard to have that confidence, I've seen so many weaknesses of mine and it has been hard accepting or overcoming them but I know he wants is to because that how we accomplish the things we need too. If we don't have confidence, well life's gonna be a lot harder. This week, if you feel like there are so many weaknesses or just things you wish you had or were better at, I challenge you to stop ask God what your strengths are and use those. We can accomplish all, especially if we are showing God that we know our strengths and we are grateful for them so we use them. I know he will help you and answer you. Sorry a shorter email this week. I love you all and miss ya like crazy! BE MISSIONARIES PLEASE! #RELY #CONFIDENCE   スミス姉妹
