Thank you for the emails! We had a great week! I'm so glad I have been
able to serve her in mito for so long. We are seeing a lot of tender
mercies of the Lord.
The Lord has definitely been preparing people here in Mito! Do you
remember Sumiko that we found last week visiting a member? Well we had
an appointment with her this week and it was amazing! We met with her
by the Takahagi eki and taught about the restoration and the Book of
Mormon. She thought it was all very interesting and liked it. She also
shared some very serious trials she's experienced in her life and how
the knowledge of Christ has helped her. We testified a lot to her and
said how much happier she could be by following the Savior. We talked
about baptism and extended a baptismal invitation and she excepted!!
We met with her yesterday after church and we taught the plan of
salvation. It went really well and we set a baptismal date for the
31st! We might have to push it back a few weeks depending on how she
can get to church. She lives about an hour away by train and is
looking for a job right now so it's difficult to come to church but I
know that the Lord will provide a way!
Yesterday, I bore my testimony in sacrament and it was my last fast
Sunday in Japan. The members didn't realize I was leaving so soon and
let's just say staying in an area for almost half your mission has its
perks. Everyone is inviting us over for dinner and just want to talk.
Today we went as a district and some members to Daigo and saw some
waterfalls. There wasn't a whole lot of water right now because it's
been so hot but it was still gorgeous! I'll send pictures!
I love you all so much! Thank you for everything! I hope you have a
great and safe week!
Love, Sister Lacey
