comment How accurately can 使い be translated as “angel”?
@Earthling: What part don't you expect, the 御 or the 使い? In the case of the former, 御 is used on many things related to God in Japanese Christianity: 御父【おん・ちち】 (the Father), 御子【み・こ】 (the Son), 御霊【み・たま】 (the Spirit), [御使]{み・つ}い (angels, messenger), 御言葉【み・こと・ば】 (God's word / the scriptures), etc...

comment How do you say “question”, and which counter should be used?
Yes, 質問 = しつもん (Olumide put it in their answer). もん may be the actual counter, but sounds too formal in conversation (to me). You'd use that to say like "This test has 20 questions" or something.
