Japanese is such a pretty language <3

Here's the original page


We believe Jesus Christ invites all people, races, and cultures to follow his Gospel and feel his active love for all of us. So, when someone starts serving on a mission, they'll be assigned to either teach in their native language (like me) or to learn and teach in a different language. The UOM is mostly comprised of English-speaking missionaries, but a lot are assigned to speak Spanish, and a few speak in more specific languages, including French, Portuguese, Chinese, and American Sign Language.

"Jesus Christ" in Sign Language:

1 - Poke both palms w/ middle fingers. (crucifixion nails)

2 - Shape hand into a "C", move the hand from adjacent shoulder to hip like a sash. ("King" + C for "Christ")

On a related note, this may sound strange, but I think I received a promoting from the Holy Ghost to start learning some Japanese (through Duolingo) in my spare time. I'm not assigned to teach in Japanese, nor have any obvious reason to learn it; but since I felt it was a prompting and the pandemic created a lot of downtime, I started learning a bit of it alongside my hobbies of drawing & journaling.
