Ciao everybody! This week was actually way cool! The days are long but the weeks are fast! It’s crazy to think that I only have 2 weeks left… there’s no way I’ll have enough Italian in two weeks. I can say “atonement” and “restoration” but I have no idea what “store” or “park” is. So that’s the MTC for ya.
So a few funny stories to brighten your day. So, we were teaching about how Joseph Smith received the Priesthood. We explained that three “agnello” (an-yellow) came down to Joseph Smith and gave him the Priesthood. Well, turns out we should have said “angelo” (an-jello)……. “agnello” means lamb and “angelo” means angel… so three lamb came down to Joseph Smith and gave him the Priesthood. So that’s awkward.
Okay another funny story, Elder Brooks was trying to say say “baptism shows”…..mostrar…. but he said baptism monstar…. baptism monster… so we’ve had some rough lessons but its been good and really funny.
Well, not a whole lot happened this week. The same thing happens every single day so it’s hard but it’s good. On Sunday, Chad Lewis and Taysom Hill came and talked to us at our devotional. It was AMAZING!!! I tried to talk to Chad because my dad knows him but he slipped out the back pretty quick. It was super good.
Taysom had an amazing testimony of how everything happens for a reason and God puts you where you’re supposed to be. It was awesome.
I’m dying to get to Italy but at the same time, my language is no where near ready. I have been moving ahead on my own and learning past tense conjugations because I need to know those and I was ready for it. Our one investigator can’t read so its been hard to teach her without the scriptures.
It’s been a solid week full of lots of study. Our schedule everyday is:
It’s long hard days but they’re good and we’re learning a lot. It’s more gospel study then I thought and less language but its good. It is hard to teach all of our lessons with limited vocabulary though.
