This week absolutely flew!! We put on zone conference this week in Taranto and that was really good! It's always good to see other missionaries and catch up. We drove up therefor interviews with President Pickerd. Those went good.
This week we went to stop by a member who was in the hospital sick and we actually ended up giving out a Book of Mormon there which was sweet, she asked us to give a blessing and that was really a cool experience, I really felt lead by the spirit. While we were visiting we showed the same Christmas video and it was awesome again. The spirit was so strong and as I stood there thinking about Jesus Christ and all that he was and did I was over whelmed with the spirit. Since I've been on the Mission my understanding on the Savior and his Atonement has grown so much but not even that is a start to understanding all of what he did for us. Though I don't have a full understanding of just how grand the Lord Jesus Christ i,s the holy ghost was there to let me know that what he did happened, and is true. And because it's real, Jesus Christ lives and we can all live with our heavenly father again and we can all have joy in every moment of our lives.
The video we watched is called "He Is The Gift" it is so good, I invite you all to watch it. With this week preceding Christmas we can all gift Jesus Christ a better understanding of his life. I know he lives and that he is our savior.
Vi vogliamo bene! Buon'natale!!
