Letter Home: Dated 18 August 2014

I was about to hop on my bike when I saw a girl walking. The thought came to me that we talk to everyone.  I wasn’t feeling too hot about my Japanese, but I remembered something I heard another missionary say, ‘It doesn’t matter what you say to those who are prepared, they will receive the message.’  I walked over to her and talked.  We gave her a Book of Mormon.  She committed to read it and we scheduled to meet her the next day at a park.  She came to the appointment. She had read about three chapters. We talked about our purpose as missionaries and taught her how to pray. She committed to read more scriptures and pray about them.  We scheduled to meet this coming Thursday.
