Weird Fish

This week has been full of weird fish, Roman Necropoli, and the usual finding, but this time in a new awesome part of town that we have never tried before.

To explain the Fish, we were invited by some potentials to go to a feastival with them. It ended up being a complete waste of time, but we got to eat some weird fish! it was good, but also kind of gross.

The new area we went to is called Poetto. It is near the beach (don’t worry, we didn’t get close to the beach) but that means there were lots of people to talk to also, the moon was beautiful that night, so we got some good pictures too.

Finally, for Pday we went and saw these cool Roman tombs. It was really sick!

Anyways, I gotta go, but just in case I don’t see ya, Good afternoon, good evening, and good night!

Zone Conference in Cagliari

It has been yet abother fantastic week out here in Cagliari. We had Zone Conference this week which means there were many hours spent stressing over 2 hours worth of addestramenti, but in the end everything went well!

We have been trying to set up a lot more appointments with members because we realized that from our mission’s biannual reports that our rate of baptisms from member referrals is just as high as our baptisms from personal contacting, and we spend a lot more time doing personal contacting. Although, I do have to say that I kind of enjoy personal contacting. I guess that’s what I was “raised on” as a young missionary.

Anyways, this pday we went and did a sick hike to a light house and a World War 2 fort and anti aircraft bunkers. It was pretty cool and and the countryside is gorgeous. Every time we go and do fun stuff like that for pday, it reminds just how sick this mission is.

Italy is Amazing

It has been two long weeks in the dark, and I am so sorry about that…actually I’m not all that sorry. But that’s because I actually have some sick stuff to share with you all. We had a baptism last Sunday, and then yesterday he got confirmed. His name is Sandro Farci, and he is literally a stud. He’s been reading the Book of Mormon and he has already almost finished it a second time. He had hit rock bottom when he was found. He had lost his job and his family and was depressed and on at the end of his ropes, but the change that reading the Book of Mormon and following our invites brought to him was incredible. He is now happy and excited for life and loves to learn about Christ and share with others what he knows. His entire outlook has changed thanks to the Book of Mormon and the restored gospel.

We also did a sick hike of a place called Devil’s Saddle, so I have some sick pictures to send home. Then today we went and had a nice Sardo meal as a district. It was really good. Probably the best shrimp I’ve ever had. Sometimes I sit back and think about how awesome it is to a be a missionary in the coolest mission in the world. It is literally incredible to be here. The countryside is beautiful, the food is the best in the world, the fashion and style is some of the most elegant and also affordable, the people are some of the most interesting (in a cool way and like a mental illness), and culture is one of the richest.

Italy is amazing,
