Potatoes+Pasta=Goodness

Some very cool things happened this week.
 
One of the cool things that we ended up doing this week was helping someone move. On Saturday, we went and helped this less-active member lady named Emanuela Velardi move to an area of the city called Monreale. It took all morning. And let me tell ya, it is really tiring carrying heavy things down 4 flights of stairs. And then, later that night, we had to pull a mini exchange with another Anziano si chiama Knutson. We had a way cool, fun exchange all together. Later that night, we went and had one of the coolest things that happened this week. In fact, I think it maybe the coolest thing. It has to do with my investigator named Gino. I dont know if you remember or not, but he has had a recent conversion. And this week he went from never wanting to come to church with us to wanting to come to church, actually coming to chruch, and loving church. On Saturday, we gave him a tour of the Chapel. He walked around, asked some really good questions about things, and we gave him a pretty comprehensive tour of the entire building. We showed him the baptismal font from actually inside the font itself, and taught about baptism, and explained what we do in church every Sunday. As we were getting ready to leave, he stops us and asks us about a certain painting on the wall. It is the one of Christ visiting the Americas. We explain what was happening in the immage, and he then tells us that when he was living in Mexico along time ago, he remembers a man telling him a legend once about a man all dressed in white with a beard visiting the ancient people. I thought that was really cool that he put 2 and 2 together like that. We invited him to church the next day, and he came. And he said he loved it.
 
I had a way cool lunch with a bunch of africans named Eric and Vida. We ate Fufu. It is like a lump of raw dough that you break off with some soup and swallow whole. And it was actually way good. They had put bits of goat stomach inside the soup, which was actually not too bad.
 
I saw some members from Trapani in Palermo this last week. It was way good to see them again.
 
Anyways, my time has run out. I will talk with you next week!
Vi voglio bene,
Anziano Parry
