We were well taken care of this last Thanksgiving. We spent the meal portion with theC's and R's in the basement of a church somewhere out here in the country with all their extended family. It was a lot of fun! Everyone was a little confused why we were there for a bit, but they seemed to love taking to us. Everyone cannot get over the fact that Sister Takeuchi would leave Hawaii this time of year, and come to Ohio. So funny! It is a great conversation starter.
We spent a lot of time this week in the Youngstown area. Probably won't have to go back there for a bit, which is a relief for us. We found a new investigator there, but it isn't safe for us to teach him, so we are going to have to pass him off to the closest set of Elders. Pretty much a major bummer. We did see a pretty cool blessing from our hard work. Sister Takeuchi took the lead on knocking on a door of home of a lady who we had never met before, but is on our records. A very pleasant looking Sister S opened the door. Sister Takeuchi confidently introduced us, and was very surprised by the quick, "Well, come on in!" we received. We were warmly received, and got to know her pretty quickly. She told us some of the reasons she hadn't been to church in a while. Sister Takeuchi invited her, in the most
sincere and loving way I have ever heard someone be invited to church. I have a lot that I can learn from her. She couldn't this last week with all her family in town for the holidays, but hopefully next week we will get to see her at church!
We didn't get to see N this week. We will see her this week, though. More details to follow once we see her again.
Overall, we had a great week! I love missionary work! I love being able to devote all my time and efforts to doing what the Lord needs me to do, and being his mouth piece. It is a wonderful thing that we get to do as a members of this church.
love you all! I hope you have a great week this week!
