Bow-bows...bow wows?

This week...

 Well transfer calls! Sorella Jarnagin and I are staying together. No
surprise there :) and coming up to our zone will be Sorella McPheters
and she will be companions with Sorella Workman again and we're the
only four sisters in our zone and so it's like the Palermo house all
over again!! But instead of living in the same house we are 2 and a
half hours apart but exchanges are going to be so awesome this
transfer! I'm so excited to be reunited to them again.

The work is going good, you know the usual, heartbreaks miracles and
joy. Supermarket lady is doing awesome!! Friday we went to another
member from Brasils house and she made, "bowbows" don't know how to
spell that but its basically Brasilian hotdogs. Haha, also really
funny to hear people speaking in Italian/Portuguese and then say
"hotdoggies" haha English words are just funnier in other languages.

Today we're in Rome for pday because Sorella Battezzato dies this
transfer! Also Sorella Rossi! Two of my old companions. I'll miss them
for sure.

A theme of this week seemed to be opposition in all things. I feel
like it came up in almost every lesson we taught this week! I feel
like we've exhausted the subject, but in case you didn't know, trials
are good. Hard things make you better! There's a hymn in the LDS hymn
book called, "come come ye saints" and there's one verse that says:

Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we’ll have this tale to tell--
All is well! All is well!

Everything worth having, takes a little fight, it takes a little work
in our part. But just like a baby learning how to walk, they fall down
and it's kind of a painful experience to watch, but you you've got to
let them do it, just keep cheering them on, and eventually they will
know how to walk! I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father, He
has a plan for us. He doesn't like to see us fall, but He knows how
much better we will be once we are able to pick ourselves back up. A
little opposition does ya good. If you don't know sadness, you could
never understand joy!

Love y'all! Also, enjoy this next album cover: we've found our
favorite morning run-

 The cross run. Here's a little portion of our vineyard.
