This week has been pretty great! We have been seeing a lot more success in finding lately and we are excited for this next week because we have a pretty big pool of contacts. Also we finally have solid plans to meet with one of our investigators who has been difficult to meet with because he is always busy with work. Also, we have been trying to get members more involved with our investigators, and it has really helped one of our investigators. He’s made good friends with two members in particular, and we’ve noticed he seems a lot more happy and open lately.
Today for Pday I got to see why the Rome Italy mission is the coolest mission in the world (or at least why Rome is sickest city ever). We visited the trevi fountain, the Spanish steps, the Pantheon. We skipped the Colosseo because we’ve already been by it like 3 or 4 times. Yeah, after proselyting in front of it, it just kinda becomes a normal part of the city, no big deal… Best Mission ever. Period.
This week I really saw the importance of prayer in the work. I’ve been trying to be more consecrated with my prayers by kneeling for personal and companion prayers, asking for blessings of success, and asking for help to come through my actions instead of only asking for blessings. I really saw the effects of it. I felt more guided by the spirit, and we saw a lot more success this week as far as finding new contacts goes.
Tonight we also have transfer calls. I’ll probably be staying here in Rome, and I would expect that my comp isn’t changing either, because we got blown in last transfer, but I guess you never really can know for sure. I’m excited to see what changes there will be in the district though.
In regards to President Monson, I am truly greatful for the opportunity I had to hear him speak and guide us throughout the growing years of my life. We are so lucky to have a loving prophet to guide and lead us in these latter days. I know that President was and is a true prophet of God and held the keys of authority to lead Christ’s church in this dispensation. I will always cherish the moment I got to shake his hand at the cultural celebration for the Kansas city Temple.
Questo trasferimento è stato troppo breve. Ma quando penso alle cose che abbiamo fatto, queste 6 settimane sembrano molte più lunghe. E la cosa più strana è che le sorelle nel nostro gruppo hanno già fatto un mezzo delle loro missioni. Il tempo qui va troppo veloce.
Vi voglio tanto bene,

Yeah this stuff is all in my proselyting area… You can’t beat Rome.
