Week 61

Wow well this last week was definitely a mix of emotions.  It rained almost everyday last week.  My boots and rainjacket barely have any water proofing, But it's great because we have met some of the most amazing people out here in Baltimore.  The branch and the missionaries are working together more so than I have ever seen and it is truly bringing a new light to this area!!  We are teaching a lady named Maria Isabel Reyes de Jesus, What are the odds of having a name like that!  She is on date to be baptized on the 22 of May this following Sunday.  We are hoping that her family will follow!  We have been teaching her for a little over a month now and she is so prepared.  Also met Nicolae and his family.  The are some of the nicest most humble people I have ever met.  The came from Italy, made it to mexico and then came to texas and Maryland.  Talk about a 2 year trip!  That would be rough.  They have 2 daughters and they came because there was no work in Italy...  They say the people there are so nice tho.  We were able to share the restauration in Italian with them and the spirit was so strong.  He said when he came to the church that he had never felt the spirit so strong in any place he has ever been.  It really goes to show that even tho we don't understand all the words, the spirit truly has a language of its own.  I am in such amazement at how strong the spirit is in a lesson just when we have a member come with us and bear their testimony.  This church is so true. and the plan of happiness is such a blessing for the family.  I am so grateful to be a part of gods army for this short time.  I hope you all can find enjoyment out of the commandments that god has given us.  I love you  Have a great week.

Soo your never gonna believe this!  The branch introduced is to a family from Italy.  They literally had nothing.  So everyone from the congregation donated something to them!! They barely speak any English.  They speak more Spanish but mostly Italian and Romanian!  They taught us how to make real pasta from Italy!  IT was sooooo good!!! Who would of thought I would be speaking Spanish to learn about the people from Italy!!  Their little girl taught us the colors in Romanian as well!!  In this picture we have people that speak: English, Spanish French Italian and Romanian!  How cool is that!!!
