Ok, not much happened this week so this will probably be a short email.....
We met with Valentina (from violin casa in casa)! It was a miracle because she was the only one at home which made it so we could be a lot more personable and get a lot further in our lesson teaching!! We read the Book of Mormon with her and it seemed to be something that she likes reading and we explained to her our purpose of why we are here as missionaries and she still wants to meet with us!! So that is a major plus. Piano piano! Sorella Baielli is an incredible teacher and knows the doctrine very well.
Sorella Baielli did her first casa in casa. There was this lady that we offered to help and she told Sorella Baielli to move the entrance mat and I can't describe it but it was the most awkward thing ever. Sorella Bbaielli just like bent over while this old lady is telling her, left, no right, a little more right, no to the left haha. But we did meet this cute girl we have to visit this week who wants to talk to us!!!
We met a lady while doing finding this week who we asked: "what makes you happy?" She said "dogs" as she walked her four dogs around. She said she's too busy for us but I totally agree that dogs make us happy.
The zone leaders had a baptism this week that we got to sing at! It was a beautiful ceremony and it was so much fun to see how happy they were to see this lady enter into the waters of baptism. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes us happy you guys!!!!!
The BEST THING I STUDIED this week was Alma 24 about the Anti-Nephi-Lehites. Those people are such an example to me. I was really struck with their understanding of the doctrine of Christ. It says in the chapter that they "were among the most lost of all mankind" and it just shows how it is NEVER TOO LATE to repent. And then once they had entered into that baptismal covenant they understood the true meaning of repentance. They understood that when we repent of something, we commit to never doing that thing again. And they were not going to break that promise, even if it meant they had to lose their lives. That is a true disciple of Christ. I hope we can all follow their example. I am certainly not a perfect person, but with examples to follow it sure makes it a lot easier.
"And thus we see that the Lord worketh in many ways to the salvation of his people"
