I still can't believe I'll be in Italy in 2 weeks!

Same old, Same old going on here. I am learning so much! As soon as I feel like I am mastering the language they throw some new concept at me (past tense/imperfect/supersquash... yes supersquash!!) On Saturday our district  had a Solo Italianano day. It actually went really well, but by lunch we were all were frustrated with not being able to say what we wanted to say, I think it was the most quiet my companion has ever been in her life! Hopefully the next Solo Italiano day goes a little better.

The devotionals here are so amazing. My companion was asked to say the closing prayer,t and I got to sit on the stand with her and Elder Cook! After the devotional Elder Cook came over to say something to Elder Mika who had said the opening prayer but didn't shake any of our hands. Haha I was so close ;) The devotional was so great. I loved how his wife talked about how our mission is a message of gratitude to the Lord. At the end of his talk, Elder Cook  said that our mission would bless every single person in our life; what a cool promise from an apostle!

Teaching is getting easier and I actually look forward to it each day. We committed one of our investigators (who is actually our teacher) to baptism!! We also had our very best lesson as a companionship on Saturday when we taught a less-active (who is also a teacher). I strongly believe we teach better when there is no contention in the companionship. It is amazing how much I have learned about the spirit and how I can get it even more strongly in my life.

I love seeing all my 49th ward family here! Jeremy came in last week and today I hosted Courtney Hurley (going to Korea!!) who I met at school!

Today at the temple we ran into one of our favorite workers, Gloria Nixon. She is the cutest older lady who always gives us about ten hugs each and tells us how much she loves us! All the older ladies in the temple love talking to the missionaries, it is so fun! They make going to the temple even more fantastic!

Oh and goal accomplished! I memorized D&C 4 in Italiano this week!!

Thanks for the mail and dearelders! I really do love it! Thanks for all the prayers too!

Love you all,

Sorella (Dani) Hamblin
