I think I’ll start off by saying that to say my whole mission wasn’t a miracle would be to cheat the value and importance of my mission.
It’s hard to nail down just one experience, since it seems like I’m favoring it above the rest. However, I suppose writing about Naniwa’s baptism in Fukui would be the real miracle.
Several times Naniwa’s cousin came to me, saying, “I wondered why they had transferred the last missionary out before you. Now I know. You and Naniwa were pre-existence friends. You promised him you’d come for him, and here you are.”
I had never heard that kind of language from anyone before, but I knew that he was right somehow. I met an eternal friend. I never felt so attached to someone in my whole life.
I baptized him and will never forget him. He even plans to dendou his family!
Hoiza, Hoiza, Hoiza!
