This week was pretty crazy! We had interviewsand zone conference hat was the least amount of time that I have ever had to plan a zone conference and it was probably one of the best ones I've done! So that was pretty sweet! It was awesome to see President Pickerd and Sorella Pickerd again. The talked about faith and it was pretty good! We talked about the quote from President Russell M. Nelson's talk that he gave morning for conference. "Nothing opens the heavens quite like the combination of increased purity, exact obedience, earnest seeking, daily feasting on the words of Christ in the Book of Mormon, and regular time committed to temple and family history work." It was pretty good I leaned a lot from Preparing.
Getting to know Cagliari was fun this week we had some good finding and got to teach some lessons too, that was fun! It's going to be a fun transfer!
We were finding one day and we had some people offer us coffee again so we went with them and got orzo and ended having an awesome conversation with them about the Book of Mormon and restoration! They randomly had to leave super fast because they forgot about an appointment or something so I hope we see them again! We will pass by again for sure.
I don't have much time for a spiritual thought but I really like a quote in a new section of preach my gospel by Elder Ballard "A key to happiness lies in understanding what destinations truly matter—and then spending our time, effort, and attention on the things that constitute a sure way to arrive there.” I love this because it is part of what we help people do as missionaries, understanding what destinations truly matter. 3rd Nephi 13: 33 says "seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you" the greatest destination that we can shoot for is the kingdom of God. I know that when we seek first the kingdom of God that he will help us in every other aspect of our lives!
Vi vogliamo bene!
