Come state? I hope life is great for everyone :)
This week was quite the week.was super great. We had a conference with Anziano Kearon of the seventy. That was amazing. He just showed Soo much love and gratitude for us. One of the things that I really liked that he said was Become the Message. It's so true. When we are truly happy and show that, people are more likely to talk to us. He was a convert in his twenties so we got to hear his experience as well as miracles that happened when he was a branch president. The spirit was so strong and I loved it. We got to go to Milano for that, and I was able to see all of my past companions! All of them! So that was so fun!
was weekly planning so that took a lot of time. Then we tried pass-bys and had a lesson with a new convert who has been a member for almost a year. That night we had a Relief Society activity with Genova 1. Talia couldn't come, but we texted Giorgina and she said sure! So she came. The activity was pretty much just talking... So that was kind of awkward at first... Especially for Giorgina. But luckily a few of the members talked to her. Then afterward as we were headed home she really opened up and we learned a lot about her and some of the things she's been through. I feel really close to her already. She's so great. She didn't want to come to church morning because we wouldn't be there, but she said next week since we'll be in Genova 1 then.
But even through all this craziness we had a great miracle! So we had district meeting and it ended up going little bit over. We had to go to the post office for Sorella Gregg's permesso and we were planning on going to the one in Sampierdarena since the lady is super nice and we wanted to try to talk to her more and get her to come to English class or something. But we didn't have time so we just has to go to the one in Sestri. So we got that done and then got on train. Now that I look back I can see how every decision was guided by Heavenly Father. We could've gone in a door closer to us but then last second we decided to go in a different door. We go in and sit down and this lady across the aisle kind of diagonal from us is just looking at us. I try to smile at her and I was thinking of a way I could talk to her since the seats right across from her were already taken. Well, during the ride she just starts crying. I nudged Sorella Gregg and told her that the lady was crying, and we both were like we need to find a way to talk to her. I pull out a tissue and had Sorella Gregg hand it over to her since she was next to the aisle. She took it and said thanks. We decided to stay on the train past our stop and see if she would get off the next stop and then we'd get off, too. So we get to the next stop and she doesn't get off. Then all of a sudden she grabs her back and practically runs off. What?! Well, now it was too late and we didn't want to just go chasing after her. The train was still at the stop and then the doors close. And we figured it was too late. Then the train just sat there. It was almost as if Heavenly Father was saying, come on sisters... Get off the train... So we decided to see if the doors would still open. And they did! So we get off and walked out to the main part of the station. We spot her in a gift shop. We were standing there trying to figure out how to approach her when she came out and came close to us. So then I just started talking to her, not knowing what I was going to say. But we were both given the words and it was so great. Her name is Denise, and she said she was looking at us because we were just so beautiful and confident and when she saw our name tags she said "that's why! Because you're close to Jesus!" She started crying because she just doesn't know what to do in her life. She just feels lost and confused. It really was a miracle. We told her we could help her, and she was so interested! She said she had decided to leave to Venice then while on the train she felt like she should go back home and that's why she just got off randomly. And she was the one that said, but then I met you guys! So that was so neat! I'm so excited to teach her! morning
So miracles still happen! Even in crazy times haha! Missions always just keep you on your toes!
Well, have a great week! And always look for the good things in everything!
Vi voglio un Sacco di bene!
