It's great to be busy!

Hello everyone! Sorry this week's letter is going to short!

   We were so busy this week! Mostly because we were traveling all week!! We got to go to Sapporo on Thursday for a Zone Conference. Elder Whiting from the Seventy came and spoke to us. It was a really good talk! We talked about how even though God does love everyone, he also has favorites among His children. Those favorites are the people who are righteous. So we talked a lot about how we should be striving to become one of His favorites by keeping the commandments, being obedient, serving others, becoming more Christlike, etc. It was a really interesting topic, and it made me realize that sometimes I focus too much on myself. Thinking about things that don't really matter, or just aren't as important. When really if I want to try to be more like Christ I need to be focusing more on other people: members, investigators, even random people on the street.

   Also we got a new investigator this week!! Her name is Oonishi San. She was actually a pass from the Elders. She has been coming to church and also to Eikaiwa for the past couple weeks! She has basically been coming to every church activity. She is really great and has been reading the BOM. So now our goal this week is to find out what she has interest in because she has been coming to all the activities and church, but we're not sure why.... I know sounds a little strange.  I'm excited to meet with her this next week!! 

Love you all have a good week!
