So, Happy New Year! I hope Christmas break is going well! I was so happy to see you guys for skype! I love you all!
Friday, we saw another family who are from the Philippines and it was fun. They have a karaoke machine and thousands of songs, so we rocked with them for a little while. Then the next day, It SNOWED!! It was so beautiful and unexpected and fun.
Monday, we went to a member's house and she had a friend over who has a really intense story. This man was an investigator a year ago and had actually had a baptisimal date, but he was born Muslim and once he started getting serious about the church, he started being threatened if he left his religion. He ended up not being able to get baptized because it was too dangerous. Unfortuantely, that's a fairly common thing to happen here, and the church tells people to not be baptized if their lives are in danger. But we saw this man and he still has so much faith and hope. We gave a little spiritual thought and he seemed so bravo. I hope one day he'll get the chance to be baptized, but even if he doesn't in this life, I know that Heavenly Father knows his heart and mind and his desire to follow the Savior. This former investigator is just so amazing.
Anyways, yesterday, we did a scambio all day with the sorelle from Mugio, and they are so awesome. They both came to Milano and we had a ton of fun and a day packed with lessons. Also, I got my package yesterday! Thanks so much mom! I love everything and my collega and I think the Frozen pajamas are pretty awesome. Thanks! It was a lot of fun to open!
Well, I think that's it for now! I hope you have fun in Utah and have an awesome New Year's. I love you all so much and am so grateful for your support and love! Vi voglio bene!
Love, Sorella Snow
