So many people!

It is reported that over 1 Million people cross this intersection daily... over 2,000 at a time!

They call this the Shibuya scramble!
The only problem to stop these people long enough to share a message!

Here is a photo of my companion and I along with the other set of sisters in our apartment and a member doing the Shibuya scramble. Fun day!

Monday, April 14, 2014 I come!

I am transferring!! 
To Shibuya!! 
Downtown Tokyo! 
Very excited.
Like I said in an earlier post, I have been to Shibuya many times....with my family when I was younger.
This is going to be great.
Sad to say goodbye to dear members and investigators in Oyumino, and Molinari shimai.

General conference was also great. We had an investigator come and she was going to slip out after and hour, but she stayed the whole session. She loved it! We went by her house to follow up later that day and to clarify about Jesus Christ's resurrection and I bore witness of Him. I do not have to have met Him in person to know that He lives!
Love is the essence of the gospel. Love can change the world!

Look where I get to walk every day. Gorgeous!

This week my testimony that Heavenly Father loves me (and each of us) is even stronger. I was struggling with something and praying about it last week and the answer to my problem was taught to me in church on Sunday during one of the lessons. Heavenly Father answers our prayers!

Temple again

We had a Temple P-day again. It was great to see so many sisters and friends. Hisashiburi! I loved being in the temple. Here is a photo of my companion and I in front of the temple again and this time it is Sakura season!

We were able to watch the General Women's Conference from and love it so much! They were so good at explaining our divine nature and potential. I want to share this knowledge with our investigators so they too can understand who they are!
