Useful Quote

"When we give thanks in all things, we see hardships and adversities in the context of the purpose of life. We are sent here to be tested. There must be opposition in all things. We are meant to learn and grow through that opposition, through meeting our challenges, and through teaching others to do the same."
Dallin H. Oaks

Letter Home: Dated 17 November 2014

We were able to accomplish a goal of ours Campfire Night! We made banana boats, we played games, and learned about Family History.  Two people who were recently baptized and two people we are currently teaching came. 

I have really been working on making lessons short, fun, simple, and powerful.  It helps that I can communicate a little more than before. I really like Japanese.

I love it here. It is SO fun.
