Battesimo di Carne - 5/16/16

Mondello. We went on a hike here for P-day.
Hey Family!

This week was good…in an interesting way.

I'll start off with our new investigator, D. He's a great guy who has come to English Course for a few weeks, who is also interested in the Book of Mormon and what we believe. So, we got the chance to teach him the first 2 lessons this week. Sadly, he couldn't come to church this week because he was out of town. We have been teaching him lessons with his friend M, who is an investigator of the other Anziani (Anziani = Elders). Kind of a strange situation, but it's been working well. Anyway, he is an awesome guy and he really loves family.

We had a good lesson with our other investigator S too. He really studies the Book of Mormon, and comes to the lessons with notes on what he's read and lots of questions. That's really good, and he has good questions also. The big thing with him is that he needs to pray, which is something he is not super fond of. I hope that he will be a lot more into it during this next week. I guess we will see how much of a desire he has to know.

Sadly, this week we couldn't meet with L, who has a baptismal date. Maybe this next week he will be a bit less busy.

Saturday was the day of the battesimo di carne. Pretty much some of the coolest ward member take us out to eat Sicilian and Palermitano foods. Btw - that's not really that amazing...because it's not real meat that Americans eat. So here is what I ate and I'll add pics. Cow cheek, cow intestine lining, cow stomach, “other” intestine, colon of veal, lamb colon, bone meat, spleen crudo and other unspeakable parts of a cow...yeah, not really tasty things...but now I can enter heaven, haha. Baptism of meat is required, right? Hahaha.

Anyway, Sunday was cool. I loved church, and after church we had lunch at a member's house. I ate soooooooo much food. Then after this, we were fed by another new member. I felt so big and full…lol. It was a good day though. I got to have raw oyster too. That was interesting.

Ok, now for today. We went to Mondello and went for a hike. It was super sick (awesome). There is an old man that lives in the lighthouse at the top. It's super pretty and really interesting. There are a lot of stories, but that's for a different time. I have like no time right now.

I love all of you!
