Week 53 - Bari, Liberta, Italy

Amici e Famiglia,

So after emailing last week we ate some good pizza before going to the park to celebrate a friend's birthday.  We ate some Italian pastry stuff and drank some soda.  Then we played basketball, football, and soccer.  I also taught some taller than me Lithuanian girls how to throw a football. Later that night we had a lesson.  The next day we went to district meeting and afterwards we went to the same old delicatessen shop to get sandwiches.  The guy that makes the food wanted to have us try a different thing so we ended up eating expensive salads that had cheese and artichokes in it. Good deal.  Then we had a few lessons and English course.  The next day we had a few lessons.  The next day we had a lot of lessons and English course.  The day after that we had weekly planning and then a few lessons before a family history activity.  We lined up according to the year we were born in and man alive there are some ancient people still alive.  Then we started to share favorite stories about or lessons from our parents and ancestors beginning from the eldest to the youngest. Afterwards we enjoyed a lot of gelato.  The next day we had a bunch of lessons and our awesome neighbors gave us some free food at lunch which was a classic dish from the region of potatoes, rice, and mussels.  On Sunday, we went to church and afterwards went to a member's home for pranzo and we had pasta al forno (lasagna type thing), meat, cut strawberries, and an ice cream sandwich.  Afterwards we went to visit a new convert and watched a church film with him and then visited his friend in the hospital who got hit in the head with a rock during a post soccer match fight a month ago and hasn't been doing too well.  We gave a blessing and then talked to some people before going home.  Sorry about the lack of detail this week it has been a lil crazy.  Transfer calls are this weekend too.  Alla prossima.
