On Thursday we passed Mondi over to the Anziani. When we said goodbye to him he said "your ministry is now over." Just another great quote from Mondi. Although I don't think it tops him telling him that she's like his mother and is a big girl after we took a selfie with him. Haha. We had fun with him and I hope the Anziani will be able to help him more! Then we went to visit a less active who has bad health. Her dog is borderline crazy. It's not a big dog but rather a small one that thinks it's big. We offer to take this dog on a walk for her because she can't leave her house. We take this dog outside and it goes nuts! It's like it was never domesticated. We were one step away from being attacked. So bipolar. It loved us in the house.
My beloved companion made bagels on Friday! They were pretty good. We also went to go see Milli and her mom. It was good to see them we had almost like a little tea party except with not tea... so not a tea party. Haha. I love them though. They are so fun to talk with. Then we got to see Maria Tacunan! Man I love that woman! She's the bomb! They had our Book of Mormon chart we made for them hung up. They're just the best.
Saturday we finally got to see the Ponce family and I just love them. They are still struggling and it just breaks my heart because it just seems like they never catch a break. But then we passed by Sorella Sacco. She's a talker. I felt bad because she kept telling her son to be quiet and then she would talk more haha. She's a cute little lady though!
On Sunday Milli and her family came to church and it made me so happy! The ward was so good at making them feel welcome and Nicolo finally warmed up in primary and it was just a miracle day. Sorella Mongiovì was a home girl and helped Milli with knowing where to go and everything. Just helping her feel welcome and introducing her to everyone. Tiziana even brought a friend to church so that was cool!
I swear I'm so fed up with smelling smoke on my balcony when I'm just trying to do my jump roping exercises. It makes me lose all patience with the people I see on a street that as you walk past they blow smoke in your face. And if I see another 14 year old smoking, I am going to lose it!
Sunday was followed by Monday. And on Monday we had an amazing appointment with Milli. She made us some amazing food from Ecuador. We had a really good lesson about the plan of salvation. They agreed with everything and recognized it as the truth! Nicolo also told us about how much he loved coming to church. Ah! I love them. They are great.
Random fun fact: we made a fort and lived in it for a straight week. Also mega bed was created in the fort. It was a blessing and a curse. We got some good practice with our army crawl though!
Okay so as missionaries we pray right before we leave the apartment every single time. You might think it might just be another part of the routine but there are seriously so many blessings! It's one of those weird things that I want to continue after the mission. Every time while we are praying, I am reminded of something that I am forgetting to bring/take from the apartment. It's a small blessing but it makes a difference. Prayer works. Take time to stop and breathe. Talk to Heavenly Father and you will see blessings! I promise.
I love you all!
