My teachers are really cool. We have Sorella Urban and Fratello Gessell. They are the best!! Urban served in Rome and Gessell served in Milan! Sorella Urban said when she was there, there were only 80 Elders and 20 sisters! And now she says there are 250 missionaries (half elders, other half sisters!!) HOW COOL IS THAT!!!? We are so excited to go to Rome!! We get our flight plan this Friday!!!!!!!!!! ALSO, we get to Skype lesson this week to REAL LIFE ITALIANS!!!!!!! AND I get to go to the Salt Lake Temple!!!!! (international priorities) ;)
WE GET NAPS on Sundays and P'Days!! on Sundays we have sacrament meeting in the afternoon dopo (after) our temple walk!!! I put my pj bottoms straight on, do half an hour personal stufy then have a half an hour nap!!! ITS BLISS!

Our zone are the cutest, we have a mini FHE at the end of Monday, where we basically just sing an 'inni' (hymn) and pray! It's really cool!!
ALSO talking about miracles - those of you who know me, know that I DO NOT EXERCISE. HOWEVER, every day this week (other that Sunday) I've been running 1 mile! Ok yeah, only 1 mile but THAT IS PROGRESS ! I still don't understand how it is supposed to 'feel good' after, cus quite frankly I don't feel that way, but hahahaha it's a good thing to do I guess.
ALSO!!! I've been assigned to do the closing prayer at some kind of MTC meeting thing on Sunday!!!! EEK!!! In front of everyone! and apparently it's gonna be broadcasted to all MTCS. (So AMMON -- LOOK out for me!!)
One last note, a sister in my zone is in the same ward as one of the Apostles, but before she had her call he told her that 'choice spirits are being called to Italy - the people need us! WOW. So exciting!! I hope I can live up to that expectation and I LOVE THE ITALIANS ALREADY!!!!!!"
Week 5 update
|Outside the Conference Centre (Tempe in the background)|
"Salt Lake was a dream!! Salt Lake Temple was so different, but the Spirit is still the same there! The Celestial room at the temple too!!!! IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! and just everything about it!! I love it!!!! After our visit to the temple, the temple square sister missionaries took us on a tour!!! The conference centre was so so cool!!! Knowing that the prophet had been there was just so cool and the Spirit was there so strongly, even though it was an empty room!"
