2 January 2015 - Coincidence? Probably Not!!!

Good morning, 
 
First off thanks for all the birthday and Christmas wishes. I did not expect to get so much love, you guys are awesome.  I was actually wondering what Eri was up to these days, the other elders and I enjoyed the videos thanks so much!   Also the one of Mason and Olivia with the ham incident was quite interesting, but you should probably apologize. 

This week was filled with lots of good stuff.   On Christmas we had dinner with Kaicho and his family and the office missionaries, then hung out with them till about 7 (and he may or may not have asked us if we wanted to watch Frozen with him.  Ha ha   We were so surprised, so we said, "sure lets see it!") then just relaxed at the office  after that. 
 
The next day we went on splits again with some other Elders and we were blessed with so many miracles again.  Too be honest sometimes going on splits as an AP, has a lot of pressure on you. Because we are assistants we are expected to find a good amount of success in each area that we go to that we usually don't really know anything about, but hey I'm just a normal guy, nothing really too special about me, so I sometimes get a tiny bit nervous but always results in asking God a lot to help us in our efforts in the area to help the elders ha.  But again God blessed us so much. They didn't really have any investigators so it was just another day of all finding, so during nightly planning we prayed where to go and set appointments (specific places at specific times) with God where we felt we should go.  Then the next day we were led to 3 different people who told us they had at one point died, and were brought back in the hospital, or were near death in the hospital and it was a simple prayer that changed their recovery.   Coincidence that we just happened to start finding all the people in the area who were having near death experiences?   Probably not!   At every appointment or place we prayed and felt we should go, we were able to find someone there who had some story and wanted to meet again and hear about our message.   I think in total we were able to find about 8 or 9 people who wanted to meet again and hear about the message.   Ha ha, it was such a crazy day.   With every splits we go on my testimony is strengthened more as we rely on the Lord and work upon our faith, anything is possible!   The area doesn't matter at all, God is gathering his children everywhere, no matter where we are the work is the same, and we find success in the same way.   1 Nephi 22:12  (Wherefore, he will bring them again out of captivity, and they shall be gathered together to the lands of their inheritance; and they shall be brought out of obscurity and out of darkness; and they shall know that the Lord is their Savior and their Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel).  So that was way fun.
 
On Monday, President and his wife bought a cake for me and they sang Happy Birthday to me which was super nice.   The office elders bought me a huge banna..   I am not really sure what to do with it, but I'm thankful.   Another great birthday in the mission field!   Then other than that we prepared for and had a training for all the Zone Leaders last week, and have been preparing for our trainings next transfer since they will start as soon as transfers are over. 

Also one of our investigator wants to come to church tomorrow so please pray for him!   His name is Danuka. 

Well I hope all is well!     Love you all!
