Wow, so yet another week has passed!
Wednesday night, we went over to the anziani's apartment and we
grabbed their area books and any other things we needed. Really weird
to be in an anziano's apartment!
Thursday, we spent a lot of the day going through all their area books
and trying to call people up and kinda organize it a little. They
have a lot of people that we have to try and keep track of!
Friday, we saw Sorella Nav in the morning and we talked about
faith and how its ongoing. Then went out to lunch with her. She's so
fun! She's also way sweet, she was so excited to take us out to lunch!
The rest of the day, we got a ton of bidoni and all the rest of our
appointments canceled on us. Kinda a bummer, but it happens. So we did
Saturday, we did weekly planning which took a lot longer than usual,
we have twice as many simps now, so that's exciting! We also saw
Sorella Car that night. We read a talk in the latest Ensign with
her. The one about the steps to a happier family.
Sunday, one of the anziani's old simps who had moved to Bologna got in
contact with us and was in town for the day, so we went and met him at
the station and showed him the way to the church. He's a really sweet
guy, he's getting baptized soon. Church was also super good this week!
We saw a ton of members, they're starting to get back in town after
Ferragosto and we set up a lot of appointments for the week! Also the
relief society lesson was really awesome this week, which was good
because it can sometimes get a little hectic with 20 outspoken Italian
ladies all talking over each other!
Monday, saw Sorella Ani and her sons Mattia and Nicola. They're
all so cute. They want us to start helping them learn English so they
asked if we could come once a week and speak only English to them for
an hour or so. The boys are really funny. At one point, Mattia
accidentally got locked out of the house and his little brother was
begging his mom, saying come on, let's just leave him out there for
half an hour, maybe an hour! They're big jokesters. We also saw the
bishop's family that night. They have a son who is 9 and hasn't been
baptized so they asked us if we could come over and help them out with
getting their son ready for baptism. We just kinda explained to him
what the steps are to baptism and what he nee to understand/start
doing to be ready for it. They're a really cute, solid family.
Today, we have pday. We decided to stay here and kinda chill today,
cause we're pretty tired! Tonight, we're taking a train to Bologna
where we'll be staying the night and then in the morning, we're
heading to Modena for a conference! There's a new area president here
and he's touring all the missions and doing conferences! This will be
a pretty big one with about half the mission there, so we're pretty
|We got to ride a really nice, fast train (to Bologna) and we bought ourselves some Happy Meals and rode in style!|
Well, I think that's it for me this week! I love you all so much and I
hope you all have a fantastic week!
Love, Sorella Snow
