Hello, everybody! It was a good week!
Okay, answers! We didn't go in the tower of Pisa. It costs 18 euros to
go up and we also didn't have a ton of time. Maybe I'll go up this
transfer :) haha. As far as I know the Medici seal is just their
crest but maybe it's super special! Sorella McMurray is super awesome
and fun! She's from Ohio but her family lives in Utah right now. I'm
super excited to work with her. Each missionary gets their own iPad to
use, cool right? For now we have to use wifi but hopefully we'll get
a data plan, it'd make life a lot easier. We haven't received
permission from Salt Lake to use them for online proselytizing yet, but
we hope soon.
So, we had transfers this week and last Thursday I got to stay in Pisa
with Sorella Bradshaw. It was super awesome and super beautiful. We
were expecting to only be there until about five or so when both of
our new comps would be arriving, but I guess there were some delays
in Milano centrale so they didn't arrive in Pisa until 9 at night. Then
Sorella McMurray and I had to hop back on the train to head home to
Livorno. We made it to the station at 9:30 and all of the buses had
stopped for the night, but luckily we were able to get in contact with
a member to give us a ride home.
Needless to say, the next day, Friday, we were pretty exhausted! We
did our weekly planning and then spent the rest of the day doing pass
bys and showing Sorella McMurray around the city .
|The first day Sorella McMurray was here, we went out to the docks to see the water.|
Saturday, we did more pass bys of less active or inactive members and
today, someone let us in! Her name is Gabriella and she's a super cute
little old lady. She hasn't had any missionaries visit her in along
time and she said we could come back to see her again so we're super
excited to start working with her.
Sunday, it was Sorella McMurray's first day in church and it was kinda
funny, cause I was wearing glasses that day, so a few of the members
didn't recognize me and thought that I was the new sorella and came up no
said benvenuta. That afternoon we did a lot of calls and organizing
lessons for the rest of the week, so we're excited and hope we'll see a ton of people this week.
Monday, we had district meeting and saw a member named Sorella C.
She's preparing to get her patriarchal blessing so she wanted us the
help her get ready and help her read the scriptures and understand
more. Then we did some pass bys afterwards and met some people on the
street along the way. It was a super busy day. We also passed by
Stella who we hadn't seen for a little while.
Tuesday was the Independence Day for Italy, so a lot of the people
we'd made appointments with that day canceled on us. It's funny,
Italians take their fiestas realllly seriously, so we weren't able to
see anybody that day, everything fell through. Kind of a bummer, but
andiamo avanti. English class that night and only the most dedicated
students showed up since it was a festa, so it was pretty fun. They
are all awesome at English.
Today, we went to Lungo Mare the pier out by the sea, and it was super
beautiful. Livorno is pretty amazing!

Well, it's been a really good week and I'm super excited for this
transfer, I think that Sorella McMurray and I are going to get a lot
done! I love you guys and I hope you all have an amazing week!
