みんなさん こんにちは！(Hello everyone!)
Last Wednesday, my district and I had the opportunity to do proxy Temple sealing for a German family at the Provo Temple. It made me so happy that I helped a family to be sealed in the afterlife. “Families can be together forever” is one of the eternal truth that was lost and we’re blessed that Temple ordinances are restored today.
After going to the temple, my companion and I did an orientation to a new missionary in our zone. He’s the only missionary in his district and the only one at the Provo MTC currently studying Romanian.
The next day, we had our third TRC! We prepared a lesson about the importance and blessings of obeying the Law of Tithing, but I was prompted at the last minute that we should teach about keeping the Sabbath Day Holy instead of the latter topic. Despite the lack of preparation, we still followed the prompting. The lesson went well and through the help of the Holy Ghost, I was able to form Japanese sentences quickly in my head. In that experience, I firmly testify that when we follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost we will be guided.
Also in this week, we did one of the hardest tasks here at the MTC: to teach the entire Lesson 1 (Restoration) in Japanese. We had 2 mins to prepare and 8 mins to teach it. We talked as fast as we could but we didn’t make it on time. After the first practice, our Sensei gave us another 2 mins to search for scripture and to give an overview. Again, we were asked to do all of it within 8 mins and guess what we still didn’t make it on time.
