We had appointments with 3 different families this week! Its a really awesome opportunity for us to get to know the needs of members and teach them!
We met this potential Maria this week. Or rather she met us! We had gone to her house for an appointment but she didn't answer so we left a little note And went our way. But we didn't feel or know where to go! So we took a bus And tried to go downtown. As we got off a bus this lady stopped in her car "SORELLE SORELLE!!! SONO IO!!! SONO MARIA" she said she was going to meet her friend and we should come, so naturally we got in the car and went! Her friend was so lovely. Maria (who has know the sisters for a long time) started the conversation with whatcha how they pray! Pray sister pray! So we prayed together it was pretty cool!
I met this other lovely lady on the bus named Paola. We talked about families. I'm so grateful for my family. I'm so grateful we have families. Wouldn't be here with out mine!
Italian Chinese food... it's a real thing and it's pretty good!
Italian poutine..... not a real thing but I've decided baked potatoes with pesto and melted gouda cheese makes a lovely substitute!
This week we celebrate Ferragosto. Everyone is heading to the beach! We accidentally took this bus this week that we knew took people to the beach but when they say it goes to the beach they mean it drives directly beside the shore line. It was so beautiful and I saw some flamingos in the wild! But we will never take it again! Comunque- It's going to be a great week!
I've been thinking about improving lately and what I lack yet. There is a good quote from a talk called Approaching the Throne of God with Confidence "acknowledge and face your weaknesses, but don’t be immobilized by them, because some of them will be your companions until you depart this earth life. No matter what your current status, the very moment you voluntarily choose honest, joyful, daily repentance by striving to simply do and be your very best, the Savior’s Atonement envelops and follows you, as it were, wherever you go. Living in this manner, you can truly “always retain a remission of your sins” (Mosiah 4:12) every hour of every day, every second of every minute, and thus be fully clean and acceptable before God all the time."
Yes I have area I can work on, but as long as I do my best I can be happy. And so we live "after the manner of happiness." (2 Nephi 5:27)
I love you all ! Don't give up hope! Love and be loved and live. Be patient with others. Be patient with yourself.
....isnt There a song like that?
