Holy cow it is completely crazy that it is time again to write this email! That was like the fastest week of my life. The days go by so fast, it is a little freaky! People are tellling the truth when they say that missions go by fast! This is literally going to be over before i know it! Well it was another wonderful week here in Pavia! We saw some miracles and had some really awesome experiences! I will do my best to lay down the best details of the week! I just want you all to know alllll the details but i guess that is not really possible!

So Ward Conference....it was supposed to be this huge deal, a big missionary tool where everyone invites their friends and tons of new people were supposed to come. We had a table full of book of mormons to hand out and everyone was just amped....and then literally like no body came. It was soooo sad. The only one that came was L. but he didn't even stay for sacrament! It was really a bummer, but oh well we tried really hard! The mission president was even there! it was a great meeting though! I helped the primary with a wonderful musical number, We'll Bring the World His Truth, the missionaries sang with them and I played the piano and it was super powerful! i loved it. everyone is soooo grateful that i play the piano!

One other miracle that we had was the other night after we had tried to contact this family that we had found, but they didnt answer their door. We had gotten back on the bus and were heading back and this suuuuuper creepy guy started talking to us. like super creepy. he wanted us to go get drinks with him and yikes it was bad. we tried to talk to him about Christ and then he left us alone! but this other guy came up to us and was like, are you talking about Jesus? i am interested! and we were like...ohhhhhkay cool! so we started telling him all about the restoration and everything...this was in English by the way, there are a lot of English speakers here, like Africans,. anways he was golden! he ate it up and even told us that he has been looking for a restoration of the spirit in his life! aah it was so cool! we prayed with him and got his info and it was such a miracle!!
It was a good week and i just really feel like I am learning so much every day! I feel like a kindergartener, having to start at the very beginning! but it is great. I love learning and i just have to remind myself daily that I have only been here for 2 weeks...i got a long way to go and soooo much to learn! i love being here and I love being a missionary! It is such an amazing work and such an incredible opportunity to just be able to give everything that I have to The Lord! what a blessing!
I am SOOOOO stoked for General Conference this week! we have to go to Milano to watch it, but its gonna rule! i love you all and I thank you again for your continued support! oh also, I need some pictures of the fam for these family books that we are supposed to make, so if you could send some in the mail, that would rule! kay kay i love you all and i hope that you have a wonderful week! remember to humble yourselves each day and look for The Lords hand in your life in every moment! You all rule and I pray for you daily!
