Conference and Broken Bikes

Email: April 10, 2013

I cant wait to come home but yet I want to stay here for ever! Dont worry, you all will recieve a super bug hug and kisses from my glowing face in Aug '14, that date is a scary one but yet exciting too. I cant want to come home then knowing I gave it my all!

Well confrence was fantastic! Watched it in Italian as we had investigators come! That was super awesome. Marta, the one who spent 300 buck on a fancy dinner came and also our baptimal date, william came. I understood most of it, got a little lost when they would tell a story or something but got the idea. It helps some times as you can hear the english in the backround, as the traslation is over played the english so it helps with understanding, but usualy you only will hear a few words in english when the traslator takes a breath or a pause. Anyways, we were not able to watch the sunday afternoon session as it ended at midnight. We were 10 late to the first session so we missed the temple anouncements and the first half of Monson's talk. We heard the 58 new missions being created and how we need to donate tot the genreral misison fund generously to grow the lords kingdom world wide. We did have the opprotunity to watch parts in englis between sessions as we were in the church all sunday from 10 30am to 8 30pm, so that is when I heard the temple acnouced in Cedar City. Lets just say I was a little to excited and my companion called my a girl and said, "what is the big deal, yeah its a temple but you dont have to jump up and down and freak out" haha yeah that is kinda what happend...good thing it was just us two in the church, otherwise the members would think I am crazier than I already am. hahaha. 

Miracle and the best news! Went on scambio with Anz. Jonhson, district leader, and we went and did Willaim's baptisimal iterview and he is set for the 20th of April! BAPTIMS!!!  We are super excited for him. He is the most humble man I know. He cant wait to be clean. He loves the idea and knowledge that he can be 100% clean of all mistakes he has made. He wants to be born again! 8africans love the idea of 'being born again') I love william! Now I just have to figure out how to do a baptimal program and plan for a baptim in Italian....uh oh...haha we are super blessed with an amazing branch president and mission leader. They are always helping and are great. Last week after confrence, it was the first time Presidente Bressan called us "bravi missionari" he loves us now! :)

Anz. Tanner broke his pedel of his bike, copletly snaped the metal, we borrowed a members bike and that same day in the evening, Anz. tanner broke that bike too! The pictures are of the membe's bike 1. broken de reailer thingy that changes the gears, it 100% just folded up into ist self reandomly while he was riding it and it broke a few of the wheels spokes. The next day we bought a new bike, mission reimburesed it, and the second picture is of him taking the broken member's bike to get it fixed out of Anz. Tanners pocket. The bike shop will tell us how much it cost tommorrow, im guessing like £40. and the bike is worth maybe £50 or £60. :/ Bho! Anyways crazy day of two broken bikes! The new bike is super super nice though, so fast! 

Well continue to be awesome and I am always praying for you!

Anziano Edwards!
