First off, i would like to verify the rumors...VENICE IS A DREAM. Yes, it is 100% as amazing as everyone says, i am a living witness! Last Wednesday after we emailed we hopped on a 2 hour train to Venice. We only had 3 hours there, unfortunately, but we were still able to see most of the city and even managed to get lost for a solid 20 minutes! It is a really confusing lil place. But holy moly, it is magical. The big thing there are the masks. SO many masks everywhere. Holy cow. I even bought a little baby one that is a magnet, because i felt weird going to Venice and not buying one! Sooooo yeah, Venice was a dream. I wish that we would not have been in such a hurry, but i imagine that i will go back there sometime in my life. We took loads of pics so dont worry i will share um :) we also got the classic pizza and gelato...just to authentizie...ha i dont think that is a word...the experience. Venice is super touristy, it was so funny how much English we heard! It was a good time for sure.

Things are just going suuuuuuuuper well here in Trieste! We are finally seeing miracles and things are starting to happen!!! Patience and hard work pay off...i can tell ya that much. Literally this entire transfer has been suuuuuper rough, and we have worked super hard but haven't seen much success. BUT we have not given up and we are being blessed with miracles. Seriously there are just too many to tell them all. Things are just going well! Our days are going how we plan, we have actually been able to have appointments with people that have been ignoring us and we are finding people that seem very sincere. I can testify that this is the Lords work, that He knows exactly how it is all supposed to work out. This transfer I have learned how to trust in Him, and in His plan. I have learned that we just need to KEEEP ON KEEPIN ON...because the blessings ALWAYS come to the faithful. We are not perfect missionaries, that is for sure. There are a thousand things that I could do better, but I am trying, and Heavenly Father sees that desire. He KNOWS US PERFECTLY and He knows what is in our hearts. If we are constantly seeking to do His will and to do our part 100% of the time even when things are hard, we will grow. We will learn. We will look back on hard times and see how we have become better humans. I am so grateful for His love for me and for EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS CHILDREN. He loves us all, always has and He always will. Turn to Him, seek His will, and everything will work out!
I love you all and i hope you have another wonderful week!
