April 22nd Letter

Dear Family,
Well this was a fun week! We had an activity in church yesterday and it went really well! We had a lot of our potential investigators and investigators come to the activity. It was an all day Pasquetta party and it was really fun! It was good to see the members interact with the non members! We played lots of games like ping pong, Foosball, and human battleship... you play with water balloons and a you launch them over a "wall" and try to hit the people laying on the ground. it was a lot of fun and it just turned into people grabbing the balloons and throwing them at each other! Our district is trying to do a week only in Italian! its pretty difficult but its also really fun! haha needless to say i carry a dictionary with me everywhere i go now :)

Well this week, like I said, was hard for us to meet with our investigators. But we were able to meet with Anita, and the first lesson we had with her in the week went great! We planned a great Plan of Salvation lesson, a lesson that allowed us to personally share why we are grateful for the plan, and to get her looking in the perspective of eternity. We had a great lesson! We had her draw herself the plan on the board and she loved it and expressed feelings of gratefulness. We asked her if she wanted to be baptized and she said yes, this is huge because we haven't been able to get her to say yes. Now the problem part... Whenever she feels the spirit really strongly, she tends to feel sick. I don't know why it is like this, but it happens a lot that she will feel sick after a lesson. After we finished our lesson she was standing up and she fainted and started having seizures, so we hurried and gave her a blessing and called Anziano Scherbal to come help. So this is our dilemma, we want to have these great spiritual lessons with her, but every time we do she ends up having some sort of physical reaction. We are not sure what to do, cause we don't want to hurt her, and this has happened many times throughout the lessons that she will feel sick. So any Ideas?
