Anziano Orso Letter April 16, 2014
so this week has gone by so quick!! i cant believe it!! its already wed. what the heck? haha. that just means im losing myself in the work, which is good because it helps me be more open to the spirit. the weather is really bipolar here! today its chilly, but all weekend it was really hot.....and to be honest i miss the arizona heat, only because its a dry heat and not humid! it SUCKS here!! haha. and maybe you forgot, italians dont have AC in their houses.....its crazy but its true, so everyone always had their windows or doors open, which is good for finding, because we just yell in the house threw the window haha. they usually shut the window and ignore us, but we try haha. but ill give you a run down on my week.
Giovedi (thur) we did a lot of finding, we made a couple of pass bys where we got stood up, but good news is we had a family that we went to go see, her daughter is less active and their sister is not a member, they are the coolest family!! they are so funny and we had a really good time, my comps birthday is in a couple weeks, so everyone is inviting us to their houses for their birthdays. we have a lot of parties for this kid haha.
venerdi (fri) we did weekly planning and did more finding, its starting to get hotter so more people are out in the parks, which is good, we have tlked to so many people! its insane i lost count after 1,000,000 haha. we found this one park never to go to again, its a camp of hobos....at first we were confused where we were, but then realized that everyone in this park are hobos... its sad, but they dont want to listen, they alway want the church to give them money.
sabato (sat) nothing really big happened, we did a lot of finding, and spent the afternoon tracking down less active members that have disappeared in the church records.
domenica (sun) we had church, made appointments for the next week with the members, and then later that day we had dinner at a families!! it was really good!! this family is really awesome too!! this is a really good ward with really amazing and big hearted members.
lunedi (mon) we did a lot more finding, found a lady in the park taught a nice lesson, but she said she wasnt really interested. its sad, but we gave her our number.
martedi (tue) it was such an awesome night!!! we had inglish class, we taught the english class while the sisters taught family home evening that we do every tuesday. we played two truths and a lie, about everyone, helped them learn new words and sentence structure, because italian and english are way different in grammer. for FHE we played a game called fruits or something, every person had a fruit and when that fruit was called you had to switch seats. if you were in the middle three times you had to dance, sing, or have everyone in room tell you to do something. i didnt lose but everyone wanted me to dance, so at the end they made me do Gangnam Style for 30 sec.....it was really funny! missionaires have to have fun everyone once and a while haha. especially with members.
miracle: so a random guy came into english class 30 min. early, his name is gian pierre, he met witht he missionaries 5 years ago, and decided to come to english class and serata familiare. it was really cool. we got his number and we're planning a day to meet up with him. awesome miracle!!
funny story: so at FHE i showed everyone the family picture we have of all of us on christmas, but its without brittny. well i told them "ci e' mancata lei" which means we were missing her. but the translation in that sense made everyone think she died. so for a while everyone thought brittny died, but i had to explain she stills lives haha. i was laughing really hard.
vi voglio bene!! ci sentiamo!! ciao!!
