May 16, 2011


So a quick update on everything! All the other missionaries will be coming back in about 2 weeks!! But unfortunately 2 zones are still not opening. The Matsudo, and Kiryu Zone. The two zones I was in before coming here to Shonan. But things are going well. Were having 17 new missionaries coming which is very exciting.

I hope you all enjoyed the miracles I sent home last week. Its so amazing to see the hand of the lord in everything we have been doing recently. On Sunday we had stake conference, and we were really trying to help Makoto Kyodai come. He needed to come in order to make his baptismal date. We went over to his house early to try and pick him up. He said he would be ready, and would come. Unfortunately he wasn't there. We tried calling, but no one answered. So we finally gave up, and started heading for the train station to go to conference. On the way, we decided to take a different road we usually never take. It was my first time, but we took it. On the way we stopped and waited at a crosswalk, and looked across the street, and we saw him. He saw us too and waited, and we went over to greet him. He said unfortunately he had to work, but we pushed about Church. He asked if it would be okay if he was about an hour late. We said it would be okay. Stake conference is 2 hours, so we thought that would be okay. He said he would come, and we were really excited. The chances of us running into him are really slim. It doesn't really happen. Especially cause we took a different road we usually don't take. That was a way cool miracle.

So Yamaguchi came to Stake Conference and had a really good experience. After we taught him to law of tithing, and went over all the questions for the baptismal interview. Hes looking really really good. We have now taught him everything, and were just going to review restoration, plan of salvation, and some simple gospel truths. I'm excited for him on the 28th. Also Ito Shimai is set up for the 28th. Because of the rest of the missionaries coming back, we`re going to be transferring on the 27th, so we have transfers the day before the baptisms. This isn't official, but I think I'm getting transferred. Ive been in Shonan a while, and this is my second with Elder Petersen. Hopefully ill still be able to come back for the baptism the next day. Haha.

Well I love you all. Thanks for all the love and support.

Love, Elder Stewart
