What They Said Wednesday–Elder Kazuhiko Yamashita



Full Talk


 

Talk: Kazuhiko Yamashita - (山下和彦)- Of the Seventy

  • Story of wearing the father’s coat. Serving in the same country the father served also.
  • How beautiful upon the mountains...
  • When was 17 I didn’t understand the message, but I had a special feeling about the missionaries and I wanted to be like them.
  • May not understand the message, but like how they feel when around the missionaries (Implication:  example is powerful and understanding will come over them as testimony matures?)
  • Your message is of love, a message of hope, and a message of faith
  • Was enveloped in the Holy Spirit from the experience
  • even though I didn’t immediately understand the message, I felt the missionary’s love for me
  • Missionaries are called by the Lord
  • Three things a future missionary should have:
    • 1. A desire to preach the gospel
      • Know how hard people are striving to know the gospel
    • 2. To develop your testimony
    • 3. Love others
  • The Lord requires a willing heart and an open mind
  • We are our Father Heaven’s Children
  • The Lord loves us and will always love us.
