Transfer news: Sorella Bowman is going to San Remo. Sorella Bowman and I got along too well, I knew she would leave. I'm sad but I'm excited for my new companion, Sorella Besco. I have met her only once but I have such a great feeling about this upcoming transfer.
With our iPads we have a weather app but I think I'm going to just stop checking it because we have reached a point in the summer where it's just HOT. The other day we were teaching a woman and she was having such a hard time focusing because it was just so Hot. We invited her to be baptized and she was like "yeah sure sounds good". I'm not sure she was understanding anything but we will find out next time we see her. Tonight we are having a baptism for our investigator Patrizia. We are super excited and super grateful. We had a lesson with her yesterday. She is ready. She has changed so much in the transfer I have been here. She is truly happy now. She has such a beautiful spirit.
She is so constant in her prayers and scripture reading. I am thankful I am staying here in Modena to continue working with her after her baptism. This week was pretty rough but they always are right before a baptism. We haven't been able to see a lot of our investigators lately. I'm hoping with the new companion things will pick up again. We DID get to see our investigator that I talked about a couple weeks ago who has health problems but is super brave. She goes into a very crucial surgery tomorrow but she has such great faith. I didn't realize the surgery was so risky for a long time because she doesn't seem nervous at all she just trusts God and if she dies that is just part of God's plan for her (that is literally what she told us). We should know on Monday how she is doing but I will be praying all week for her. I'm sorry for a short email but with transfers, baptism prep, AND we had to go to the immigration office today to renew my permesso, we are running short on time. Haha I feel like I have different excuse every week of why email time got cut short again... Just know that I love you all, the Lord loves you, and life is possible with just a little bit of faith,
Vi Voglio tanto bene,
Sorella Dani Hamblin
