(I need to preface this letter by saying that when I was online this monring Robert was also on, and so we actually "chatted" with one another for about 10 minutes or so. Becuase of that this letter starts out in the middle of the conversation that we were having...By the way...he i doing super and Pino says that his Italian is great and that they had a wonderful visit together)
Dear Mom and Dad,
So ya' basically it was awesome!!! I'll just get to the point!! ha ha Ya' I had a great time with Zio Pino.
It was EPIC!!! ;) ha ha
It really was fun! He showed up a bit late but that's OK! So first we hopped in his car and just took a drive around a bit and it was chill. Then we parked and went and got something to eat!
I got this riso (I think that's how you spell it! It's like a rice!) and then some steak stuff and Anz Gallacher got the same. It was so yummy! Dad I learned from you that it always tastes better when its free!! ;) ha ha jk!!!! But ya it was fun!
We just talked about everything! Like how he was doing, work, the mission, you guys, past cool stuff and just like everything!
It was really cool to actually be able to talk with him!!! Because you know I couldn't like speak anything at all before but now I could actually communicate good!!! ha ha We actually had a conversation and stuff!!! ha ha
He said that all was going well for him and that's what matters!!! We kinda brought up him going to church and stuff but then he just kinda brushed it off and changed subject and kinda got quite so I just kinda dropped it. I didn't wanna make it totally awkward ya know?
But after we were done eating we took a piccolo giro (a little ride) around centro (down town) and he was like just asking about our work and if we had people getting baptized soon and stuff. It was cool. So we took a few pics and stuff! Not like a whole bunch but a few. Dang I totally didn't think to do a video!!!! Ugh I'm so dumb!!!!! I totally should have done it!!! Next time for sure!!! I think I'm gonna be here in Alessandra for a little bit so I'm thinking that I'll invite him down one more time or something. I think that would be sweet!!! ha ha But I still didn't get an email from him! Tell him I didn't get it and to make sure that he is doing everything right!!! ha ha
But ya he made us a cake!!! ha ha We are so excited to get home and try it out!!! ;) ha ha And he also gave me 50 euro!!! He shouldn't have but it was still a nice thought!!!
But that is still not the coolest thing that happened. Right when we were at his car and we were about to leave he was like "hey.... is it OK if we do a little prayer together right now?" And I was like heck ya it is!!!!!!! So I said a prayer for all of us and it was just chill!!!!!! So ya it was a very good afternoon!!!
But ya things here are going really good! I mentioned the Zaggari family that is looking for an apartment right? I might have said it was Elaina or something? Well we got the miracle that we were looking for and they found a place to go!!! :)
It's so great to see prays get answered and to see the Lords hand in all the things we do!!!!
Jeez it really is crazy. I thought that these miracle things only happened in stories and fairy tales but the thing is, is that they happen all the time. The Lord is doing things for us everywhere!!! It's just great to see one of the big ones happen! It does help the testimony grow!!!
Another cool thing is that we are now meeting with Elaina's sister as well and she said that she wants to learn more about the church and is now coming to church so things are going great!!! We just are heaving trouble with new investigators but we are doing our best finding who we can.
But just letting you know that no I haven't gotten your packages or anything... hopefully I will in the next week or something. But this new package.... send it to..... Alessandria....? I dunno!!!! ha ha 'cause the whole mission thing changed so now we only have zone conference once every 3 months!! So the next time I have it is in November..... so I guess it would be faster to send it to Alessandria.
I'm so dang glad that dad and Brian got to go to the temple!!!
That really is the coolest thing ever!!! And I'm so glad that he enjoyed it!! Help him got to it as much as possible! 'cause it really is the House of the Lord and the best place ever!!!
It sounds like things at home are going great and I'm so happy!!! :)
