As you all know, another transfer has come and gone. It is crazy how fast these things fly by. I feel like this last one just barely started and just like that, it is gone. We got our transfer call on Saturday...and we will just say that I was surprised. Evvvvvveryone has been pretty positive for quite some time that I would be the one to be transferred and I was pretty sure it was my time to go as well. Surprisingly enough just the opposite that I thought would happen, is happening. I GET ANOTHER IN TRIESTE! Holla. annnnnnnnd...the impossible happened, HAWKS AND I GET ANOTHER TOGETHER!!!! Crazy. We were shocked. It is extremely rare for anyone to get three transfers with the same companion, especially for the Sorelle...so yeah, we were pleasantly surprised!

Then we ran to our appointment and made it there on time! It rulllllled, we get there to the park and our investigator, P., had brought a friend! We were stoooooked. We had planned to teach the plan of salvation. It was really cool because at Zone Training the day before we learned about scripture chains and how helpful they are in teaching and how much they help the Spirit in lessons and what not. So for our lesson we planned this sweet scripture chain and the lesson just RULED. it was soooo neat to see how when you are prepared and when you make the scriptures the foundation of your teaching, it just flows so much smoother and the spirit is SO much stronger! They understood everything super well and it was just a powerful lesson. We were able to give the friend a Book of Mormon and they were both really excited to read the assigned chapter together and to come to church. It just ruled and we really learned the importance of the scriptures and of following the Spirit.
The work is just plugging along really well! It is really fun to see how things are improving and picking up...members are coming up to us and saying...hey i have a friend coming over for dinner on this day..and so are you! haha it just rules. the members here are just so willing to missionary work and it just rules. I am so happy and excited to continue to serve the people here in Trieste. It is a dream city full of miracles to be had. The field is white and we are ready to harvest it! so grateful to be a member of the great harvest team of the Lord! He trusts us to do this work, now we gotta step up and do all we can to finish the game. Sorry this is kind of short and somewhat lame but i am doing really well and excited to kick it for another 6 weeks here in the land of dreams!
Love you alllllll,
