On Tuesday before Sorella Romero was mostly bed ridden (just a cold really but really needed to sleep) we were on route to an appointment when we passed this car. There was an older lady standing beside and a younger lady (the bedante) inside pulling at this older man to get out of the car. He has dementia and wasn't budging and they were like Reeaaaaallllyyyy frustrated and yelling and pulling and we felt so helpless. So we prayer, Reeaaaaallllyyyy prayed. And as soon as we finished the man complied, and got out of the car. It was a miracle.
One of the Anziano (elders / masculine missionaries) went to the hospital with stomach pains. He's got out today, it was just a virus I guess, but we got to go visit an Italian hospital. If you ever get stuck there, bring your own toilet paper.
I read two amazing talks this week. Choose to believe by Whitney Clayton given in April 2015 ( I'd include the link but I'm not that capable, Emily maybe you can help here) and faith is not by chance but by choice by Neil L Anderson giving in October 2015. Both really great inspiring motivating talks that got me thinking where I stand. And to never give up hope or faith. To hold on to what you know is true and right. The world and Satan want you to doubt and to falter but we must stand firm, tall, and strong in our beliefs.
Vi voglio Bene (literally translates to y'all I want well, but means I wish the best for you and love You!)
