Okay....I'm really sorry but I have about NO time today. We went hiking for Pday today in what looked like the redwood forest it was so beautiful, didn't realize how much I missed the mountains and a breath of fresh air till I was there today:)
It has been such a BEAUTIFUL WEEK. I am so grateful to be here!!!!!
The miracles are incredible and unforgettable and are changing my life. I read this scripture this morning and it just really hit me!!!
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, as I said unto my disciples, where two or three are gathered together in my name, as touching one thing, behold, there will I be in the midst of them--even so am I in the midst of you."
I know that we are not alone in this work, I have felt the Savior by my side all though out my mission but especially these last couple of weeks here in Messina, He is so aware of us and everything that we are doing and is doing all He can to help us look for His sheep and help others to come unto Him and experience pure joy :)
We had a beautiful lesson with Nino this last week, we taught him the plan of salvation and never have I felt the spirit so strong telling this cute 82 year old man who is heartbroken and misses his wife so dearly that He will be able to see her again and live with her for all time and all eternity. He kneeled down at the end of the lesson and said a prayer and cried and thanked Heavenly Father for the beautiful things he learned and heard.
We threw a talent show for the branch and after about 5 talents everyone decided instead they just wanted to have a big dance party....oh my goodness it was such a huge turnout and SUCH A BLAST!
Haha, it just turned into a huge dance festa with all our contacts and my big Italian family....not to mention my ward mission leader and his wife dancing the whole night away. I love these people so much.
I did a scambio with Sorella Mckenzie this week in Messina and we went over to cute Cettis house, a woman we met on the bus the last week and we taught her, her 5 children and her friends the restoration and invited them to baptism and they accepted! Even though it was our first time teaching together we were able to teach in such perfect unity and the spirit was so STRONG! It was incredible!!!
All of our investigators are still progressing and doing wonderful!!!
It's so beautiful to see! I love you all so much thank you for all the support and love!!! This gospel is so true and has brought me so much peace and happiness!!! I am so happy!!!!! :)
