Anziano Orso Letter December 11, 2013
Stavo male questa settimana scorsa :( perche' me??
ciao tutti miei amici!
so this week was not one of my best weeks, i dont know what i got but i got the flu on thur. night and was vomiting the entire night. so the next morning i was recovering from being dehydrated. but my District leader went and bought me gatorade and crackers to eat, when i could keep it down. but it was nice knowing how much the ward cares and even our investigators, because i had to stay in all day we had to cancel appointments, and throughout the day they would randomly call again seeing how i was and giving the ingredients to this crazy mix of spices and juices to help with vomiting. i didnt try any of them because i partly didnt know what the spices were, but im okay with sticking to my gatorade and crackers haha. so now i have been eating small and careful not to eat a bunch of junk food, which is my weakness...but im doing it haha.
so after being sick friday and sat sunday came around, but because i was throwing up, all the dry heaving made my voice really raspy and i could rarely talk, and its hard in italian because you have to change your pitch for different phrases when asking questions and all that language stuff. i sounded like i was going through puberty again haha. that night however we played a prank on anz. briand, we all sat in a chair and covered it with a sheet, and made him leave the room somehow, then while he was gone we removed the chair from sheet and made it look like the chair was still there. when he came to sit down right when he sat we stood up and he fell right through the chair aha haha. anz. taylor has it on camera haha.
monday i was feeling a lot better so we did really good on that day with missionary work. we taught part member families, investigators, and at the end of the day me and anz. briand had a little scambio and taught this guy in centro. it was hard bcause it was really busy with all the things going on because of natale! (christmas!) it was good. we have high plans for this week!! i love the holidays for missionary work, especially christmas! everyone will listen to you because you want to share a spiritual thought of jesus. it works a lot, and so you can imagine centro during the holidays, imagine walking through the mall during last minute christmas shopping talking to people about the gospel, its kind of difficult because its loud and everyone is busy shopping, but you get those miracles, so dont stop!
im so thankful to be a missionary! im thankful for all the birthday wishes i got, i love being a missionary and helping people come closer to christ! this gospel has changed my life and im glad i can help change others lives too. i know that jesus christ is my savior and i thank him everyday for the things he has done for me. i know he has blessed me in my life and blesses my family too. and i know God wont give us anything unless he has prepared a way for us to do it. and thats with everything in life. always being willing to share your testimony of the savior and the sacrifice he did for us!!
vi voglio bene!! mi mancate!! ciao!!
