In the afternoon on p-day Elder Koberstein and I biked by Hanaoka Mountain. At the top is a stupa that has Budda's remains. The stupa and remains were donated to Japan by the Indian Prime Minster Nehuio as a prayer for world peace
and spirit stones around the stupa representing those who died in action during World War II.
This is a view of Kumamoto city from the top. It was a fun bike ride to the top but way more hill than I had hoped for when we decided to do it. We had a fun ride and great day.
Scripture of the Week
But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words,
Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold,if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it our by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts, and when you feel these swelling motion, ye will begin to say within yourselves-It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.
