Livorno is BEAUTIFUL! - April 22, 2015


Hey, everyone! So another week has flown by! 

Okay, answers to questions! Sorella Kras actually speaks English super well (she learned it before her mission), so we speak English inside the apartment. But, she's also amazing in Italian and she speaks Spanish, so she's just super awesome. We've been getting along super well so far, so I'm happy! Livorno is BEAUTIFUL! The weather here has been pretty mild so far (probably because we're so close to the beach) so I'm glad for that, it was starting to heat up in Torino! We are in the Pisa Zone. We used to have Florence in our zone but unfortunately we don't anymore, so I can't go to Florence yet. But we also have La Spezia in our zone, which has Cinque Terre, which is supposed to be beautiful, so we'll probably go there soon! 

So, last Thursday, we had transfers! I went with Sorella Nilsen to Milano Centrale Train Station to go to transfer circle where there are 50 or so missionaries waiting for comps to show up. I got to see a ton of people, so it was fun!
"I met up with some people from my MTC group at transfer circles."

"And Sister Miller with a haircut!"
 Then I traveled with Sorella Welch (I went on a scambio with her once) to Pisa, where we met Sorella Kras and Sorella Welch's new comp.
"The train seats on the Freccia trains we took were assigned, so I was companionless for a few hours!"

"I saw the ocean again for the first time in forever!"
Turns out, Livorno is a biking city! I should've known that one biking scambio last transfer was preparing me for this! We had FHE that night and it was pretty fun! It looks like we have a lot of really cool members that we're working with here! 

Friday, we had weekly planning in the morning and then in the afternoon we saw Stefano (a member) and his friend Denise. Then we saw Sorella B. She was super cute and gave us gelato. Then we passed by a potential and she let us in! Her son married an ex missionary and moved to America, so she's just loved Sorelle Missionaries. Then we saw the ward mission leader's family that night. Their son is about to turn 8 and they want us to give him the lessons so he can understand the church doctrine better before he's baptized. 

Saturday, we did a lot of Area book and other organizing stuff. 

Sunday, we had church, and it was the ward's first ever ward conference, so that was pretty cool! Afterwards, we had a ward lunch! We are getting fed a TON here, so it's probably good that we have bikes!
Monday, we had district meeting and we saw a simpattizzante named Lucia. She was pretty cute. 

Tuesday, we unfortunately, had a few bidoni, but we also had English class (the members teach it here, so that's nice, we just show up and help!). And we were going to see the ward mission leader's family again after, but Sorella Kras's bike broke on the way and we had to get off and walk them. We also found an iPhone on the ground and picked it up and called a number inside to return it to it's owners. 

Today, we didn't do much. We tried to fix Sorella Kras's bike but we couldn't get the chain protector off, so we're going to have to take it in to be fixed. We'll probably do that after email. 

"The canal going through Livorno.  Livorno is beautiful!"
Anyways, Livorno is beautiful and the people here seem very open and friendly, so I'm happy to be here! Sorella Kras is super awesome and fun and we're both getting really excited for the Bednar conference next week!
"We went to McDonald's.  They're pretty classy here!"

I love you guys and I'm so grateful for everything you do! Have an awesome week! 

Love, Sorella Snow
