October 28ths Letter

Dear Family,
This week was full of ups and downs. First, Our African that we committed to baptism last week disappeared... yes we have no idea where he is. He could be ignoring us or he could have gotten deported. We were kinda sad about that but we took it and carried on. We then got a call the next day from an Italian that wanted to take the lessons from us. It was extremely weird because Italians don't do that. So we met up with him and found out he is the principle stock holder of Monster Energy Drinks and is this super rich dude. It was interesting cause he spoke english and preferred the lessons in English. I felt like i could do something!!! I was actually able to explain things to him that He needed! I think God gives us Investigators that are fitted to where we are at! He is super excited about the church and more importantly the Book of Mormon and the restoration. When we first met him he told us all the things he found wrong with the catholic church and the things he thought a church should be and believe. Everything he said was almost our church to a tee..or T.. I'm not sure exactly which T it is... but whatever! HIs name is Antonio and hopefully he will get baptized! The other thing is he is a dietitian and doesn't drink or smoke and that is pretty rare in italy! Our other investigator is Carlos! He is an awesome old man that knows the church is true and wants so badly to get baptized but he just cant quit smoking! He has read through most of the Book of Mormon and loves our church! He even did a fast offering! So we are working with him so that he can stop! 
Well all is well here in Bari. It is still super hot! Thankfully we don't have to start wearing our jackets till like nov. 10. It is kinda nice not being fall. It is weird though cause it is almost november and it still seems like summer. But i am told that the weather changes very fast and will be very cold here soon. Well Love you all! Vi voglio bene!

  1. That is a cool story of the old man ....and of Antonio. Goes to show you that people are waiting for the truth everywhere. I love hearing your stories. It reminds me of grandpa Line and my conversion/ baptism, etc. Keep up the good work and know I love you very much. When we joined the church there were only 6 temples and two million members. David O. McKay was the prophet. Gee whiz....I'm old!
