last week of transfer 2

This week we were sick. Allergies or a cold. It started Tuesday and we are still  little under the weather. But despite that we were still able to see miracles! We met some lovely people on the trains to and from Napoli who were just so Nice!  It was a lovely blessing this week! People who are interested in taking about life and how we can deal with struggle . Even if for you it hasnt been God nessasarliy in whom youve found help, we all have way and things that help us. I've recognized lately though that every good thing does come from God.i was also given the opportunity to choose a little his week. As it is the end of my training diciamo I was more in charge of our planning. It easy easy because we stayed at home a lot. But we have such a blessing with agency nd the opportunities to choose and to walk our own paths. We just must be firm and steadfast for what we know is good and true and right. 
I was also able to practice my soup making skills which turned out Alright!

Love you all
Alma 31:38 And the Lord provided for them that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst; yea, and he also gave them strength, that they should suffer no manner of afflictions, save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ. Now this was according to the prayer of Alma; and this because he prayed in faith.

in bocca al lupo

Another week full of miracles. Also hard times and steep learning curves. We aren't teaching anyone really so a lot of our week is full of walking around  and talking to people. So we meet a lot of really interesting people. We met this couple who were firmly atheists and told us about all these psychological religious ideas and it was pretty interesting I'm just glad I Understood!  I feel like we have actually met a lot of people who don't believe whether it's in the church or even in God. I thought I wouldn't meet any here where the Pope lives ! But I think people loose hope and then faith. It's a very trying world we live in. The only way I can even think of making it through is to at least have hope for a brighter better future. An not just hope, but active hope. Making everyday reflect what you hope for. If you hope to be slimmer, take the effort to work out. If you hope for a date, call the guy. If you hopeful a better world, make one. Raise you expectations of yourself. You CAN do it. And that's faith. 
I also learned that although things are hard you should embrace it because it draws you closer to the Savior. The author and finisher of faith. And in the end you'll have more empathy for those who are also learning.

Oh and the other fun thing I learned in bocca al lupo.  It means in the mouth of the wolf but it's like break a leg. I didn't know own why though. Yesterday this lady explained because the younger wolf's are safest in the mother wolf's mouth!

We had our zone conf this week which was amazing! I love our president and his wife and always feel really energized to do the work. I'm depending on the parable a picture is worth a million words today. 
I saw a lot of miracles and answers to prayers this week. I know we have a living prophet on the earth. If you haven't heard what he said lately check it Out!
