Tutti! We have 2 baptism dates! AHHH. Miracles. Im running out of time and I honestly want to go play field hockey with the bishops kids in the church haha. so im going to make this a list form.
I had 23 emails! SANTA HORCHATA. Mom, you gotta slow your roll man haha.
My ward is still rockin the 40 day fast, I had to fast for 2 days in a row, long story. BUT. I fasted that the Mother and daughter we are teaching will accept our baptism invite...THEY DID. WAHOO. MAY 25TH! And they came to church on Sunday. We see them about twice a week and the daughter comes to the activities and English class with us too. Were all buddies. Already invited her to come visit me back home in Cali since her dream is to go to LA.
We almost had a 3rd date the day after! ARG. Our longest/first investigator works and goes to school non stop so its super difficult to visit with him. We had an awesome lesson in the middle of the road Sat night and it was pretty chilly, but we were there for like an hour answering his questions. He needs to pray and read more to see if he is sure, not to mention he needs to make some more time to see us!
Our cultural activity was legit. Lots of people showed and had a blast. Us american missionaries danced to Beat It by MJ. haha then all the missionaries were kind of pranked by anz murphy, he made us go up and sing the austrailian national song with him hahaha.
We go out of Bergamo atleast twice a week it seems! We have had zone meeting and a zone conference in verona once a week, we have scambi with the Milano sorelle for the third week in a row and then we had a conf in milano ieri and then Stake conferenza in Verona is Sunday. Bahumbug. But its pretty cool i can say i have to go to stake conference in verona haha.
I will text yall next week what happens with all the craziness of new sorelle, everything is changing so i might get backup trained by someone else, all i know is my loverly bergamo people are all changing! I loveeeee my peeps here.
We get flaked on ATLEAST once a day by peeps, but its cool, its sad but you just kind of expect it. back up plans really are important haha. the other day we taught a few lessons in a row and it was rad. one was an awesome muslim dude from africa who is a french rapper and music producer haha he showed us his song it was dope.
Lots of cool things happening, opening a city is rough but we are seeing small miracles everyday. You really learn to recognize how God puts people and situations in your path on a constant basis. Its just like Ferris Buller says, if you dont stop to look around every once in a while, you might just miss it.
p.s. matau talked about having a scambio in bergamo and città alta...yeahhh buddy reppin la mia città! Also, the pics and letters from erryone else are super rad!
man too many funny and miraculous moments to even write! im not even going to try anymore haha. thanks all for the love, this is the best mission ever, i am excited to see some of my peeps get baptized, ive already pictured them with callings and in the temple, so its bound to happen one day even if im not around to see it. Sowing the seeds!
Vi Voglio Bene, Grazie tutti, ci sentiamo dopo!
