-met niccolo and niccola at the gesso last night....they were glowing with the light of Christ! Coming to English course/church this week hopefully :)
-elder nielsens dad bought all of us pizza and gelato for his birthday....😳
This week was busy and soooo great :) Sorella dew and I decided to write down three miracles that we see every day and it helped me to realize how much God does for us every day if we involve Him and have the eyes to see these things. Doing this helped us to not get discouraged, even if we had every reason to be! Amidst all the chaos, confusion, and the sad things that we see every day in this city, the gospel of Christ helps to cut through all of this :) it replaces all darkness with light and helps us to see things through different eyes.
Have a wonderful week I love you all so much! :)
Con tutto il mio cuore,
Sorella Tay Tay
Also, along with the Gospel, I also know that gelato is true...Sorella dew and I have found there is a correlation between the amount of gelato we eat and our missionary work. The higher our gelato intake is, the higher our missionary work levels are :)
