Ok, forewarning- this is going to be a very short email.
How are you all doing!?
Everything is great here!
This week was filled with lots of drama in the ward... Everyone has been pulling us in different directions. Our relief society president is telling us not to speak to certain members, but our ward mission leader is telling us not to speak to the relief society president. There's members going around telling the less active members and the recent converts that the church isn't true. People refuse to come to church until other people agree to leave the church! Drama drama drama!
It's times like these that I have to remember that The church is perfect, but the people are not...
I love the story in the Bible where the Savior says that the reason he hung around sinners is because it is the sick who are in need of a physician... Well there are certainly a lot of people in this church in need of the Savior's healing grace... That's where it actually works out. Even though we're all a bunch of imperfect sinners, the Gospel and the Doctrine and the Teachings can help us ALL to become BETTER! I love this church!
Ok, but that's about all I have to say... Hopefully next week will be less dramatic.
Love you all! Have a great week!
Pray for Miyazaki branch so that everyone will get along and stop putting the missionaries in the middle of everything!
