Conference was amazing! - April 8, 2015

Hey, y'all!

Man, this was a crazy week!

So answers to questions! Conference was amazing! We saw the Women's session in Italian and we got to see the Sunday morning and Saturday morning sessions in English. I think we're going to try and download the ones we missed to watch them when we have time. But it was honestly amazing. One thing Sorella Mantz pointed out was that we were watching it at the same time as our families back home and singing with them and praying with them at the same time, so that was pretty cool!

So, this week has gone by pretty quickly again, I can't believe it's almost time for transfer calls! Last Thursday, we had a Scambio with our STL who is in Alessandria, this teeny little town that I think is down south of us. So, they have bikes in Alessandria and, I have to tell you, it is in fact possible to forget how to ride a bike. For one, I'm short so it was too tall for me. But, it was a good scambio, our STL, Sorella Jackman, is super cool, and you know back here in Torino, they got fed fish, so tender mercy that I missed that.

Friday, we exchanged back at lunch time and that night we went and saw a member named Maria. She was super cool. Then we once again had an adventure getting home, with all of the buses we needed being canceled. But what I'm realizing is that usually when that happens, there's someone we need to talk to. And sure enough we met this Albanian dude who was really cool and super interested in English. Plus, he helped us get to the metro safely.

Saturday, we did weekly planning in the morning and then had the Women's session at four and the Saturday morning session at 6, so that was super amazing! I love conference! We also dyed Easter eggs that night when we got home!

Sunday, in the morning we hid huge hollow chocolate Easter eggs that we'd bought for our comps and had an Easter egg hunt. We ate chocolate for breakfast.

We were invited to the Bishop's house for lunch and it was waaay fun! He had all the missionaries in the ward there and 20 members of his and his wife's family. They homemade literally everything, we ate for seriously 3 hours and we played Mafia! They play it the exact same here, so that was super fun!
The bishop's mother made these homemade noodles.  There were hundreds of them and they tasted so good!

The lunch table. 

This is just the first course...

This looks delicious!!!

Then we got to see the Sunday morning session of conference that night! We were sooo happy that we got to see Jeffrey R Holland's talk.

Monday, we saw A. It was a really good visit! At the moment she's going through some pretty rough stuff in her life, so usually she's really sad, but this time we were able to cheer her up and she was pretty happy.

Yesterday, I was sick all day, so that was rough. We had to  stay inside all day and Sorella Mantz was super productive and cleaned the entire apartment.

Today, I still feel kinda sick and now Sorella Mantz does too, so we stayed in and took it easy. But we're hoping that by tomorrow we'll be okay again, because we're going to have a zone training. We're super excited for it because we think they're gonna give us some more info on the Elder Bednar conference.

But, it's been a really good week! I'm so happy we had the chance to watch Conference and celebrate our Savior. I hope everything is fantastic for you all this week! Vi voglio un sacco di bene!
Love, Sorella Snow
