|Our current district on a little district walk|
Other than conference...our week wasn't too terribly exciting! We were at the church for a lot of the time, with different activities and such for the holidays! Here in Italy they have Pasqua (Easter) and the Monday after is called Pasquetta (which literally means little easter..ha) It is pretty much just another excuse for the Italians to get together and have a party and eat more food! I swear they just make up little holidays here and there just so they can get a day off work and eat tonnnnns of food! ha We went to the church for a little BBQ on pasquetta, and that was really fun! we had a few non members there and quite a few less actives so that was neat! A cool little thing also happened during our little Pasqua weekend...on Saturday we were just at the church watching conference and these two 20ish year olds walked in with these big backpacking packs on and sat down to watch conference. With this being a small bit strange, we asked them who they were and where they were from...turns out that they are from California and are just on a backpacking trip across Europe! They were lost and just happened to end up at our church. As we talked to them a little more, it turned out that the girl was actually a less active member and her boyfriend was not a member. They said that they had just been super lost all morning and had been walking for a super long time and they ended up right in front of our church! She recognized the formation of the words on the front of the church and they came in to try and see if they could get some help! It was suuuuuuper cool because they ended up staying for a whole day and watched Conference with us and came to the BBQ and we just became really great friends with them. The anziani taught the boy about the restoration and it was cool becuase i think that she really recognized that it was a miracle and that they found the church for a reason. We challenged them to attend church wherever they are heading next, and it was just really cool that they found our church...especially because it is like really far away and in a little secluded place...it was definitely meant to be!
|us and our coooooool backpacking california friends...they are living my DREAM|
We will find out about what is going to happen to us next transfer this Saturday sooooo it will be interesting! Everyone thinks that I am leaving..but you really never know! anything could happen. We had interviews with President Dibb this week and they went really well! We will seeeeeeeee, I suppose. I don't want to leave this place. I love it soooooo much.
Welp, I don't reallly have much else to say! we are still working on seeing our investigators and stuff, now that the holidays are over it should be a bit easier! Things are great and we are happy!
Have a wonderful week!
