Another week down and man did this one fly by! It started off on a pretty awesome note too. On p-day we finally got to go to Sorbillo which is considered by most as the best pizza in Napoli and since Napoli is considered to have the best pizza in the world I can safely declare that I ate the best pizza on earth. It certainly lived up to the hype!
And guess how much it cost? Seriously guess. €3.30!!!! For the greatest pizza on earth. Is that not the most insane thing you’ve ever heard? It was awesome.
The highlight of the week was definitely getting 3 official new investigators. A young married couple and then also the aunt of the husband. They are super down to earth people, very humble and friendly. I can’t even fully describe the journey it has been from me first meeting her on the street until now but I can say without a doubt that God had a hand in it 100%. Other than that there wasn’t anything else too exciting this week. We were super busy.
We had a lot of lessons and did a ton of finding. I’m exhausted every single night. I remember back when I was at BYU thinking how could I possibly go to sleep at 10:30 and be tired… Let me tell you I am more than happy to go to sleep at 10:30. And especially this week I was in bed and close to being unconscious at 10, not kidding.
Sunday was a good day. We were invited over to a member’s house for lunch after church and the food was delicious. We had pasta, salad, sausage, fruit, and Nutella dolce! It was great being over there and a really great opportunity because one of the children who is in college right now has become inactive and so we got to talk with her and her siblings. The son is getting ready to go on a mission to Manchester, England in December. We are planning on meeting up with the 3 kids to have pizza one day this week just to fellowship with them, prepare the son for his mission (because Italian culture is way different from missionary life), and maybe get the oldest daughter involved in church again.
This week I was reading out of the Book of Mormon in the book of Moroni. One part specifically stuck out to me, Moroni 7:25-30. I learned how through faith we can have the ability to seek righteousness in all we do. And also that God and Jesus Christ have not changed. Their nature, their intervention in our daily lives, and their care for us has not changed at all. They love us and they want to guide us. I’m grateful for this knowledge.
I pray for you all daily and thank you for everything you have done to help me become who I am today.
Have an awesome week!
…men also were saved by faith in his name; and by faith, they become the sons of God. And as surely as Christ liveth he spake these words unto our fathers, saying: Whatsoever thing ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is good, in faith believing that ye shall receive, behold, it shall be done unto you.
