The Start of Something New
¡Hola mis amigos! ¿Qué tal?
So I decided to follow the example of my dear friend Sister Tiffany Lemon and name my email
after a song title. And you can't ever go wrong with High School Musical! Jokes, you can.
Buuut I am doing some great new things here in Soldati, like training my dear child,
Elder Boccazzi! Wooooo. He is from the Argentina Bs As South mission, and his house is
seriously like twenty minutes away from our apartment (we live right by the mission border).
Like today we literally took the bus that would take him to his house if we would have kept
going. He's actually waiting for his visa to come so he can go to the Utah SLC South mission,
but until them I shall father him! And we are having a ton of fun! This whole training thing is
such a blessing. I always felt it was so cliche to say 'I am learning so much from my trainee,'
but the truth is that I am learning a lot from my Elder Boccazzi. He has pretty much come
pre-trained. Like I tell him something and then he does it perfectly. This week he was able to
make his first invitation to be baptized, and he is always asking for referrals from the members,
THAT'S MY BOY! He also has big desires to be exactly obedient, and he reminds me a lot of
how I was at the beginning of my mission in that respect. We are learning together and having
I am amazed that, when all our efforts of the week seem to have been done in vain when
investigators don't come to Church, God finds a way to work in a blessing. Saturday we did a
quick contact of a referral we received form a less active woman. We were able to talk to her
and her partner, and they had actually investigated the Church about a year and a half ago,
and they both went to Church yesterday for the last hour, which happens to be Sacrament
meeting. Unfortunately they aren't married, but we will be talking with them this week and I
really feel something special with them.
I had some great moments this week where I really felt guided by the Spirit during our daily
planning and during the course of the day. We were finding people that were put in our path,
and then were able to do what we do, TEACH! I really love this work! and I love SOLDATI!
Hang in there everyone! I love you all and will see you all soon enough!
