in so that is fun. He doesn't come super often because he travels often and what not but this past Sunday he was definitely there! It was terrifying because I had to share my testimony in front of the whole ward and prez and so yeah that was fun. Milano is pretty much exactly what you think of when you think of a big city. We use the metro, there are TONS of people, the majority of which are from different countries (probably not true but that is what it seems like), it is suuuuuper hot and busy and the cars just drive crazy and never stop for pedestrians. It has been a big adjustment from the beautiful little dreamland of Trieste...but I am sure with time I will love it!
The work here is really good though, we have people to teach and they have had a lot of baptisms in the last few months. I am still trying to figure out everything, names and who is who and everything which is not an easy task! Plus learning the how to use the metro will take some time! There are just so many different lines and stops and ahhhh lots of stuff. Annnnnd Sorella Boscia...she is wonderful! I really love her but it has been quite the adjustment to be speaking ONLY Italian 24/7. It is good for me, I will learn and progress a ton in the language, but it is still a bit tough! I just have a hard time truly being myself and expressing myself fully in Italian, but i suppose that will come! It is pretty weird, like the other day I went through an entire day without speaking a single English word...haha what an experience! It is also weird to go from being with the same companion for 4 1/2 months to suddenly being with someone different. Everyone, naturally, does things different and it will take time to get used to it and to mesh our ideas and ways of doing things. But I absolutely love Sorella Boscia and have already learned sooooo much from her. She is extremely wise and just a very loving and giving person. It will be a good transfer for sure!

We have seen some wonderful miracles this week, i lovvvvve doing finding on the metro and the different people that are here! It is so diverse and I love that. Our ward is made up mainly of people from South America so that is really fun! Dad, there are a lot of people from Ecuador which is super fun and makes me think of you every time! I love this opportunity to get to know new people and have new adventures and learn about new cultures! Man, it is just too much fun. There are also lottttts of parks in Milano which make for great places to find wonderful people. I swear, all the nice people sit in parks. Word to the wise...if ya wanna be nice, go sit in a park! Anwayyyyys ya that is kind of what is going on currently! Lots of crazy things and what not, but overall I am humbled. I marvel at this glorious message of the Restored gospel that we get to spread to God's children ALL over the world. Recognize the miracles and then thank the source of ALL things beautiful. I love you all with my whoooooole heart plus more! Have a splendid week and don't forget to smile!!
