Letter #38 - 6/3/14

Ciao Famiglia!

So guess what! Today is my half way mark! How crazy is that?? 9 months down, 9 to go :)

Today we went to San Marinio and it was sooooo beautiful. There are these three towers and it is just this super amazing view of Italy from them. It was so fun. But I thought I was going to die on the bus ride, it was so winding and we got so car sick, haha classic, but so fun!

Also, remember how I told you the ocean was forty minutes away? Yeah I lied. It is like 10 minutes away from our house by bike, haha! So we are going there next week for pday :)

This week we saw a huge miracle! One of our inactive members came back to church for the first time in years this Sunday and then even bore her testimony in fast and testimony meeting! It was a huge miracle, we were so excited. We go and visit her every week and have started reading the Book of Mormon with her and everything and she finally decided it was time to come back. We are so happy for her because it has been so many years since she has been an active member. And she had such a great experience too, all the members were so nice to her and made her feel so welcome. It was so great.

I also got to play soccer with a little 6 year old boy in our branch this week after we went to go visit his mom and it was so fun. He was so cute, I loved it.

This week has been kind of hard on us because we have just been doing hours and hours of finding but we have been blessed with some amazing miracles that help us to keep going. We even were able to teach a lesson while doing casa (door to door finding) yesterday! That is the first time that has ever happened to me on the mission; straight up miracle. Also in the park the other day, we met a little girl from Nigeria named "Gods-timing-is-best" not kidding. That is her full name, haha! I have heard some crazy names on the mission but that one takes the gold for sure. She was so cute. And we taught her mom and she was super amazing. Hopefully she keeps her return appointment :)

Well I think that is all for this week! I can’t believe it’s already been 9 months. But then again I can’t believe there are still 9 months to go, haha! I love every day out here! I hope all is well back home enjoy the last few days of school :)

I love and miss you all!
