Field Work

Cari Amici e Famiglia,

Another week has come and gone.  This last week we did a scambio or exchange with the elders that live in our apartment.  I went with elder Bertoldo and we had a good time.  He is new and still has a lot of fire and desire to learn which was a nice motivation for me.  On Wednesday we had a few lessons including one with a new guy who came to church with his friend.  He was very curious and willing to learn. He kept saying he wanted the light we had in our eyes for himself.  He came again to church this week and enjoyed it a lot.  Work is really happening here in this ward.  On Saturday night we went to get some kebab from our favorite place and on the way we saw some of a concert that was happening in some plaza.  Then as we were waiting in line we started talking to this lady who happened to be a less active member who had gone less active after some family members died in an
accident.  It turned out to be a pretty good choice to get kebab that night.  On Sunday lots of people showed up to church and I talked with a member who was there from Terni to whom I had practiced teaching lessons in Italian via Skype in the MTC a year and a half ago.  We also had lunch in church for a senior couple who were going home and who I had also met in the MTC.  Today for pday we basically just ate some good pizza and looked at the temple from afar.  It looks like work is happening so that's pretty exciting.
