Anziano Orso Letter November 6, 2013
Tutto Giorno Sul Treno! che cavela?
(all day on the train! what the heck?)
so the week i had to make a stop back to prato which is 4 hours on the train. but it was good because we got to go through Firenze at night! and one thing thats good about being in a tourist attraction is all the americans that come haha. so its nice to talk to someone in our own native language haha
so on thursday i had to go watch a 5hr video about life in italia! was not fun, ill tell your how different it is here then america. so i had to watch the video in a room with others with a bunch of different computers so people could watch it in their own language. on my right i had this chinese guy who fell asleep and was talking and snoring the entire time. then i had this lady in my left start breast feeding her baby....and there was nothing covering her. so i had to use my hand as a visor to block her.....it was the most interesting and slowest 5 hours of my life here on the mission. but i here that a lot of people have interesting stories about seeing that video, strange people haha.
saturday nothing really big happened, we had a day full of appointment, but the bike broke so we had to walk everywhere, which took forever to get to places. but we helped many come to the gospel, we taught 6 lessons that day, me and my companion went to bed early that day.
sunday was church, and it was really good!! later that evening all the young adults split with us and we all did missionary work, we had appointments and we helped them plan a lesson and teach some less actives. it was pretty awesome!!! i love all the young adults here, they are all always excited for missionary work.
today for pday we went to the Pizzeria and learned how to make dough and make out own pizza! it was so cool!!! its a lot more difficult then one thinks. these guys knew all the science of pizza!! but they gave us the recipe so i will have to make it when i get back, probably not going to be a good as theirs but ill try haha. anyway italy is great! the weather is getting colder......but other than that the people, food, and language is amazing, im still struggling with the language, i know what theyre saying, but when it comes to me speaking my grammer is horrible. but its progress, i have to keep trying. ciao tutti!! vi voglio bene!!!
