Well, it's another week gone. This week was interesting. Thursday, we went and did some casa after P day and found a family to teach, and then we went and taught a member family. We'll hope that that family turns out well.
Friday, we put up some english class publicity, around the city. It was pretty cool to see how in 4 days practically all of the little tickets we'd put up were taken. It was one of those ads that you see with the little things to pull off on the bottom. In theory, each of those went to a different person. If so, and they all come to english tonight, we should have an english class that is about 45 people, as opposed to our usual 5-8. That'd be cool. That evening, we taught Sorella Veronica about repentance.
Saturday, we were looking at having taught 7 lessons all week. We really wanted to get our 20 for the week. On Saturday, we taught our africans, then a cool guy named Davide, who we gave a Book of Mormon to and who wants to come to church, and then we talked to some ragazzi on the street who were decently interested.
Sunday, we were at 10 lessons. I was convinced that reaching 20 lessons for the week was impossible, especially given that we had zero appointments set up. Somehow, we did it. We talked to people on the streets and in houses, and we taught 11 lessons in one day. Some highlights: First person we stop is an ex investigator named Diana who has read nearly the entire Book of Mormon but hasn't prayed about it yet. We invited her to pray about it. We'll see her this evening. Raffaele is an engineer who really liked the analogy between a line with two dots and the bible and Book of Mormon. Several atheists started to doubt their atheism. It was a sweet day.
Monday, we did a scambio with Rimini, and Anziano Snedaker and I did some good work in Rimini. It was a good scambio. I learned some good stuff, and got to know him better than I think I know my own companion. We taught their investigator Aniko about the Plan of Salvation and baptism. She was excited, but doesn't think that she can possibly keep all of the commandments.
Tuesday, we riscambioed, and got many a bidone. It was a less than effective day. I think my companion and I were tired from Sunday and that scambio.
Today, we cleaned our apartment. and set up a Christmas Tree. Yay! Christmas! I have a advent calendar too. Anyway, I love you!
