So, I have some statistics for you! There are 44 Italian missionaries: 20 missionaries are going to Rome and 24 are going to Milan. Also there are 13 Romanian Missionaries with 2 sisters. Today 940 missionaries arrived at the MTC - 442 of them are sister missionaries! J

This week has been pretty good. The days have pretty much blended together. I found out today that after the other Italian missionaries leave I will be in the MTC for an extra week to be reassigned and then I will probably be going to the Vancouver mission for six weeks.

A group of Italian elders left their door open all day so Elder Berg and I rearranged their beds, ha-ha!  It was pretty good. J

I learned a lot of things this week. We had two great lessons yesterday. The first one was with Angela and we taught her about some of the commandments and asked her if Heavenly Father had answered her prayer yet. She said she would keep the commandments and that Heavenly Father had answered her prayers. I asked her if she would choose a baptismal date in June and so she is going to tell us the date next lesson. The spirit was so strong!  We were planning on teaching her the law of chastity but when asking her about her family some more,  we realized it wasn't as necessary as we thought for this lesson.

Our second lesson was with Giosue.  We planned on teaching him obedience, to pray often, scripture study, baptismal covenants, and obey and honour the law. I tied in obedience and prayer and scripture study into Lehi's vision. I said that the iron rod is the word of God; the straight and narrow path is obedience to the commandments of God and to the word of God; the tree of life is the love of God, and the mist of darkness is temptation and apostasy. It was a great lesson! I had him read 1 Nephi 11:25 and 1 Nephi 8:23. I had drawn the vision as well and labeled it so he would stay interested in the lesson. During the lesson we somehow had time to teach him the ten commandments as well. It was more of a reminder for Giosue because he knew those commandments pretty well. We taught him the baptismal covenants because I wanted to make sure he knew what he and the Lord were promising each other. We taught all of the things we planned and the ten commandments. He committed to obeying the commandments we taught him and I asked him if he received an answer to his prayer. He said that he had and that he wanted to be baptized! It was awesome. I asked him to pick a date in June and he said he would look at his calendar and pick a date towards the end of June.

Also we were investigators for the “Sorelle”  yesterday as they taught us the second lesson. The spirit was so strong in that lesson and I could feel the love of God so strong. I learned a lot of things from being in an investigator’s shoes. That’s about all that happened this week. We learned a lot of things in the week but that’s everything really exciting that happened. President Callister of the Presidency of the Seventy spoke this Tuesday and he basically proved with scriptures from the Bible that we have the same organization, ordinances, and fruits as the primitive church.

Life has been dece. I decided I will impress/ freak out the new Italian missionaries when they come by speaking as much Italian as I can, ha-ha!

I am glad all is well with all of you. It sucks that you had to drive all over the place this past week but I am glad that all is well and Charlene is getting everything done.

 I was sick again this week, I had a cold again but it is gone now and let’s hope that I don't get sick again in the MTC. I had my first haircut here and it turned out pretty good. Anyways that’s about all that has happened in my week so far. I look forward to hearing from you next week or during the week.

PS I did get the packages thanks they were delicious.
