8 days until Christmas!!!!!!

Wowsers Christmas is comin up fast! It's been a pretty good week. I'm still... "adjusting" to my companion and learning more and more to trust in the Lord.

Our investigators are doing well. Josy told us that Veronica wants to get baptized when she turns 18. We just have to help her want it enough not to wait anohter 2 years. Gil is also progressing. We seriously see these investigators at least 5-6 days a week. It's wonderful.

It has gotten very very cold here the past few days. Something about those Russian winds are just biting. But we're still truckin'.

This past week I learned how to make "Arancini" a Cicilan treat. Pretty much you take rice, make a ball, stuff in some ragu (sauce with meat), ham, cheese, and then make then reform the ball. Then you roll it in flour, egg and bread crumbs and deep fry them. They are yummy but HEAVY. I ate one and thought I was going to die.

I never would have thought I would say this, but I'm really learning to like soccer. I never played before I got to Livorno, but now we play every Saturday with members, contacts, investigators, etc. and I absolutely love it. I'm still not very good, but I still love to play.

Looking forward to talking with you all at Christmas. It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Hope everyone has a great week. Sorry this is a little short again this week, but we gots to go see the leaning tower of Pisa!

Love you all!

Making the arancini. Our kitchen was a complete disaster!

This was just an hour ago when we got to Pisa.
