Letter #40 - 6/17/14

Ciao Famiglia!

Come state?? (how are you)?

HAPPY FATHERS DAY DAD!!!!! I hope you had a great day! Wish I could’ve celebrated with you, but in your honor I gave a talk in church, haha! It went alright, talking in Italian is becoming a little more natural and I was able to give like a 10 minute talk so I am improving little by little.

Thanks for all the family history info! I really needed it, haha. Oh and also, guess what? The other day, I must have messed with my alarm clock during the night because we woke up when my alarm went off (6:30, we thought) and then got ready and everything like we always do.  Then I was sitting at my desk right before we were about to get ready to walk out the door for church and I looked over at the clock on our wall and it said 7:15. I was like, what the heck...why is our wall clock wrong. So I went into our room and checked my watch. It said 7:15, checked the phone – it said 7:15 too. We were like...oh no. I think we woke up and hour early.... but just to be sure we called the Anziani (Elders) and were like "hey...can you guys tell us what time it is?" haha they were like 7:16... yep. We accidentally woke up at 5:30 on Sunday. and were dead tired the rest of the day, haha. Gosh. my poor companion, luckily she still likes me, haha.

This week has kind of been a rough week for us, just one of those weeks where it feels like no one will stop and listen. But we have definitely seen the hand of the Lord in our work and he has given us so many tender mercies to help us keep going.  We know that there are those who are willing to listen and who are searching for the truth. We just have to keep looking for them.

We are definitely learning a lot, that’s for sure :) It’s not meant to be easy.

I hope all is well back home! I love and miss you! thanks for all the pictures! I loved them! have a great first week of summer! :)
