Una buona settimana a Ragusa.  I am really enjoying myself here in Sicilia.  The language is continuing to get easier and more comfortable.  This week we traveled to Siracusa for zone conference.  We left on Tuesday in the afternoon and rode a bus along the coast line for 3 hours until we reached the city.  The anziani there were busy with lessons, and they needed us to pick up a few things for English Course later that night at their apartment.  We managed to find their apartment with a few directions from a member and then we broke in by scaling the wall to the second floor.  We slept there and the next morning walked to the church (very strange looking for a Mormon church) for zone conference.  It was pretty good besides being long and afterwards we rode back to Ragusa with the anziani from Catania in their car.  That night after some work we ate some delicious burgers at a place called Carnivorous.  The next day we had an interview for our baptismal candidate, and he passed.  We will proceed with the baptism on the 11th.  A few days later on Saturday, we enjoyed conference from 6 to 8pm at the church.  I really liked President Uchtdorf's talk on increasing our Gospel light.  I have been using that scripture about this light found in the Doctrine and Covenants for a few weeks in lessons and was happy to hear a talk about this concept.  The next day we watched sessions at 11am (priesthood), 2pm (Saturday afternoon), and6pm (Sunday morning.)  I enjoyed Elder Nelson's talk on the organization of leadership and Elder Holland's talk as well.  President Uchtdorf's question, "Is it I?" was very thought-provoking additionally.  Well, there is not much else to say.  Alla prossima!
