It was a wonderful week :) very busy and lots is going on, so grateful for all the many things I am learning and how much my testimony has been strengthened of the Savior after sharing this knowledge with others every day. I love being a missionary and I am so grateful to be here!!!
With it being thanksgiving this last week I just want to say how thankful I am! I hope you all find something to be grateful for. the other night we were coming home from the strazziati family's house from cassamassima, and the sun was setting and we were driving past a beautiful green orchard and could see the ocean and I was just so overwhelmed of gratitude! God is so good to us. Isaac always asks me how I see God in my life and I see him in everything he gives us but especially in nature and the beautiful earth He has given us :) I hope we're able to notice the beautiful things around us that we often forget to be grateful for.
Haha okay so about the subject title of this email, the other night me and Sorella dew were riding home on the bus and everyone was around us smoking and we could barely breathe/see. We were going through a dark tunnel and both felt we were going 100 mph and all of a sudden Sorella dew looks at me and says, "it's like we're on a real life Indiana jones ride." I don't know why but it was so funny.....hahaha maybe you had to be there.
A miracle from this week is our new cute investigator Chiara. She showed up to English course a couple weeks ago, listened to the spiritual thought and then came up to us after and asked us what the difference is between our church and others :) we had a lesson with her this last week and it was beautiful! She told us she grew up believing in Jesus and wants to know what the true church is. I'm excited to continue teaching her! God places so many wonderful people in our path.
This week I am just so grateful for the opportunity to go out and serve these people! My eyes have really been opened about the importance of just going around and doing good....and in turn becoming closer to our savior Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father! I have said this before but the people here have all ready helped me more than I will ever help them. One morning Sorella dew and I decided to go to the fish market and hand out oranges/ask people if we could help them with their groceries. It was such a wonderful opportunity to talk with so many people, and to see how many were shocked that we wanted to help them. I love being a missionary and the joy it brings me to see people coming closer to Christ!
Hope you all have a wonderful week :) love you!
