Last Thursday was my first Halloween outside the Philippines! Halloween in the United States is so big and the Elders in our residence wore costumes and went door to door trick or treating. Since we have so much food in our pantry, my roommates gave some of our candies to them. But before that, we taught a native Japanese at TRC about the Plan of Salvation and asked him if he read our follow-up email. To our great surprise, he did and did a little advance reading. He’s so awesome!
The next day, I met him again at the cafeteria getting cheeseburgers. I had a conversation with him in full Japanese. I asked him about his favourite food, how he likes America so far, and why he prefers American sushi than the Japanese. My entire district sat with him that day and was talking to him for the entire meal.
Moving forward to Yesterday, an apostle visited us again! Dieter F. Uchtdorf was talking about the success that it’s not about having the highest number of baptisms but doing well to the things that we control. I also had the opportunity to sing for the apostle of God about Joseph Smith’s first vision. We sang Joseph Smith’s first prayer and I was seen several times singing in the camera. The devotional was broadcasted to the other 10 Missionary Training Centers of the church worldwide.
