It started raining - January 6, 2016

Hey, Famiglia!

So it's been a good week. We've been starting to get really busy again
because people are coming back from vacation, so we're really happy
about that.

Last Saturday, it started raining. So everyone's been telling us that
the winter has been really mild so far this year and that we'd better
buckle up for it to get a lot worse, so this week, it got worse. Still
not as bad as last year yet (finding in the snow is not an experience
I'm eager to repeat) but it's starting to rain and on the bikes we get
soaked. We did a lot of pass bys and had a few people cancel on us.

Sunday, we taught young women's in church. It was fun, kinda weird
cause I felt like I should still be the student, not the teacher :).
That afternoon we saw Maria. We shared the story of Esther and the
Mormon message about her and Maria loved it.

Monday. Okay so, in everyone's first transfer, President Dibb
challenges the new greenie and their trainer to get 21 lessons one
week, and that's this week for us. So we're kinda running around crazy
trying to do that. We saw Diva and Debora. They're really sweet and
love having us over, we also tried to pass by a less active sister and
saw a new convert, Sandra. This is the first time I've ever been able
to visit her because she's usually so busy. It was really good though,
a great lesson. Then we had a bidone (a no show) that night. Plus, it
was raining all day.

Tuesday, we saw the B family, a family of members and had a great
lesson with them. They're really cool have a lot of faith, they asked
us to start giving out the ward Facebook page to all our simps and
everyone we meet and they want to post "inspiring messages" to help
bring people closer to the church. It's just really great to have
people who are trying to help in any way they can think of. We saw
Gabriella also. To get her, we take a train ride, then a bus ride and
then walk a little, so that took up a lot of the afternoon. But it was
really great. She's really nice and has a lot of faith and trust in
the Lord and it was really beautiful to see. That night we had FHE.
For the past month, we've only had one new convert who's been showing
up to FHE, but people are finally starting to come back from vacation
so we had a good group this week.

Today, it's an Italian holiday, the befana. She's a witch who brings
presents to kids and puts them in their stockings. So basically
Italians take their holidays seriously and every single store was
closed today and it was also raining, so we stayed inside most of

Well, it's been a good week so far, we've been keeping busy! I love
you guys and I hope you all have a great week!

Love, Sorella Snow
