Dear mom and dad,
So I will start off quickly by telling you guys that Victor's baptism was awesome! It all went perfect. Fratello Giannelli baptized him. It was awesome and interesting because he is literally 1/2 size of Victor! ha ha Victor is huge and a sharp looking brother too! Sunday was amazing too. He asked me if I would be the one to confirm him. I was so honored. It was amazing. I honestly felt like I was an instrument of the Lord - literally- when I was blessing him. It was the first time I was able to do that. It was amazing... the Spirit was so strong!

Dad thanks for your email! It was awesome and what you said was so true! Thanks for being a great worthy priesthood holder! You are exactly what our family needs! Thanks for your example! :)
I'm glad you liked the pics! I think I will be sending some more soon! you guys want to hear my story for the week? It's actually pretty funny.... so there is this "crazy" lady who lives under us who always yells at us. I can't remember if I've told you about her or not before... anyway... so I was on a scambio with Anziano Patullo from Monday to Tuesday afternoon. For lunch we were cooking and the smoke alarm went off. I knew this would be a problem so I thought "we gotta shut it off quickly" because I knew she would come up and yell at us for being loud. So we started looking for it but we couldn't find it!!!! Then I heard it!.... The door rang.....  I answered it and there she was. La "Strega" (I think that's how you spell it? ha ha). I told her how it was an accident and that we are trying to turn it off. Suddenly she came into our apartment. Kicks me straight up in the knee and then kicks over all the trash. So I tell her we are calling the cops because it's not the first time she came up and touched me and caused a "casino" (big scene) like this. So she tells me to do it and then she tells me she is going to break my face and going to kill me. That's when it kinda made me laugh and I should have ignored the comment but I just said to try it and see what happens: the Lord would protect me....that is when she just left and slammed the door. Man it was fun ha ha bless her heart! We have been praying for this lady to stop being mean to us but it is just not working at the moment! Oh well happens.
To answer your question Mom, the person from Milano is Susana! Her cousin is Percy! They are awesome! Tell them I say hi! Oh more good news! I don't know if you remember Nick and Omas from Ravenna but they are people I started teaching and taught them about 2/3s of everything. They got baptized :) so that makes me happy!!! :)
Overall things are going really well. No worries at all. We just need to make our investigator pool a bit bigger now. So ya I think that is all for now! Have a great week. I will keep you all in my prayers. Have a great week! I love you guys tons! ciao ciao!
Love Anziano Bona
Note to Grandpa:

Thanks for being such a great example to all of us! Have a great week! Tell Lorraine I love her too and am so dang thankful for her as well! Well I gotta go so take care! ciao ciao!
