Shaking an Apostle's Hand‏

Yeah, you read that heading right. This week Elder D. Todd Chritofferson came to Japan just to talk to our mission and the members in this area. It was awesome. The church is true. I am reminded of that ever week. The missionaries met with him in the morning and then the members later that night. I got to go to both meetings because we brought a less-active member to the members meeting. Both were amazing and I learned some extremely valuable things that I will probably remember for the rest of my life. 

We were finally able to contact some less-active members that we've been trying to find/contact for a few weeks. But honestly not much else happened this week. Just doing my best to gather and find the elect. Doing my best to become more like Christ each week. Doing my best to work as hard as I can to see the success to help this work hasten. It's not easy. But the reward is worth it. 

Keep your heads high, your sights set on the prize, and your heart open. 

Love your Japanese Friend,
Aulick Shimai
