Baptism!

Woo! One of our investigators got baptized yesterday, and it was one
of the most beautiful and also stressful days ever! The spirit was so
strong, the church is so true, and it was awesome!

Also, general conference, how great was that? We actually only watched
the Saturday and Sunday morning sessions, because we could just watch
them live those evenings. But I'm excited to read the rest of the
talks. Also, I have to comment on that number that the tabernacle
choir did at the end of the Saturday morning session. They literally
KILLED "Come Thou Font". Not a dry eye in the congregation. It was SO
GOOD.

We did a lot, it was a great week, but I sent a pretty long email last
week so I figure it all balances out with this. :)
Baci!

Sorella Holiday

Here we are with the sister that was baptized yesterday. She is blind and literally one of the coolest people ever.
 The font. Haha, I love this font. It was SO HARD to put it together. It's basically a jacuzzi with a plastic blow up pool liner inside. They used a ladder to get in and out.

 He is also blind. They are the biggest spiritual giants I have ever met.

I made pretzels for lunch and Sorella Anderson made cookies for the baptism.

 Sorella Anderson got her permesso this week! Oh yes and I got my "Sorella Vacanza" nametag at the last zone conference. So I just introduce myself as that for the people that struggle understanding "Holiday" and the people that already know that word in English just laugh, it's a good conversation starter.

 We got pizza with the Anziani to celebrate

 Arrosticini
Typical Abruzzese specialty. Basically lamb and fat grilled on a stick. Wayyyyy good.
 This is the beautiful view behind our home

Here is a time lapse from last Monday. We bought a giant chocolate Easter egg because that is the tradition of Italian Easter. Opposite from us the chocolate is on the outside and the plastic surprise is on the inside. We got an Iron Man toy and it's pretty awesome. Haha, we laughed at the serious looks on our faces.
