Another transfer in Olbia done! They just keep getting faster! I did a little scambio with Anziano Sellers this week and that went really good, we talked to this guy in the park who was agnostic and it was really cool to be able to help him come a little closer to the light of knowing he has a loving heavenly father! We used a lot of analogies while teaching him and they just came straight from the Holy Ghost, they just worked so perfectly!
Church was so awesome yesterday! We have a woman from England visiting for 10 week and she gave a talk yesterday; So I stood up there with here and translated it into Italian for her and it was sweet. Then after her talk, our African member, John walked in with 9 of his Nigerian friends following him! Haha it was awesome! So then my companion Anziano Parker got up and started translating with the next speaker from Italian to English. Then I did the last talk from Italian to English again! It was super sweet and the spirit was really strong! We taught gospel principles in English then translated all of the last hour into English. We had an investigator in church named Fara, she seemed to really like it so that's good! So two Sundays ago we visited a less active family they are super cool! The mom came to church. They have been visited by the missionaries for years and nothing has come from it. She told us that with Anziano Parker and I they really felt something different, and they talked about it and are now thinking that it is time to come back to church. It was so awesome to hear that because we have been working so hard to build up the church here in Olbia and after months of diligent hard work we are seeing the fruits of our labors! I said the last closing prayer for church and when I opened my eyes our little church was full! Such a great sight to see!
We get transfer calls tonight so that exciting! I’m ready for another great transfer! This transfer I studied the Christ like attribute diligence every day and man it has changed my mission! It's pretty crazy to see how a little bit out of your day can make such a big difference! I know that being more diligent is going to help me for the rest of my life! Scripture study is so powerful!
I hope you all have a great week!
Vi voglio bene!
