Italian lesson: Singular is Anziano/Sorelle and plural is Anziani/Sorelle. (Elder/sister)
I first thought that
being in the MTC would be sort of awful, but it is such a great
blessing! I get to listen to so many sunday firesides and tudesday
devotionals. Sundays firesides the speaker is some director or big wig
leader at the MTC and tuesday devotionals are an authority form the
quarm of 70 from the 12 or possibly the prophet or his coulncelers..but
thats not that likley. Anyways, they are ALWAYS so fantastic and you
leave feeling like you can change the world, which I can I guess. Also
they are so insipiring and I learn so much! I love them so much, you
have no idea! And plus I get to wear my suits on sundays and tuesdays
and thursdays as that is temple day so if its a suit day, its a great
day. I love wearing my suits! So if I was here from only three weeks,
then I would not have as many opprotunities to learn and listen to big
wigs in the church. So amazing and I am so blessed to be stuck here for
two months. It is a blessing to be here, the MTC is so great as the
Spirit is so strong and everyone is happy and just amazing. Also, being
here longer you learn more. But yeah, less than two weeks left!!!!!! Ah,
so exciting!!!! It is going to be fantastic! So great!
is almost a 1/4 way full so I am going to buy another one here, they
sell the sames ones at deseret book anyways. I love journal writing, not
sure why i never did it before, stupid me.
Not sure who told me
this, but we were talking about it earlier this week. The temple in Rome
is obviously a sign that the Lords work will not be stopped, It is a
sign that the work cant be stopped. It is a statement that eh adversary
can not impact the overall progression of the spreading of the gospel.
The Rome temple can not be justified in the fact that there are not
enough members in Italy to use it. Also, there is temple a few hours
away from any part of Italy in Switzerland so again, it seems unnecessary but yet it is being built. Why would a temple be built
somewhere where there are not enough members or need for one so close to
another? Sure the need may be there in a decade or two, but why now.
Correlation between the amount of missionaires being sent to Italy>
I think yes.
Every three weeks something happens in the Italy Zone
(zone 33!) Aug 1st, a new wave came into the MTC three weeks later the
previous wave leave, three weeks after that, a new wave comes in. So,
new wave of Italy missionaries come into the MTC every six weeks. and so
a new group lands in Italy every six weeks as well. I will ask the
other two new districs who is going to milan vs Rome and let you know
in my written letter with other good info.
Fact, I have seen Josh Curtis. We have same p day so I see him all the time every day at meals too.
Love you all and I am loving it here. All is well!!!
