2017-07-19 Post Mission Predictions

This last week was really cool! We had two lessons with Jelena, who is on date to be baptized on August 19. I told President that I just want to leave Ancona in a good position (the work has a tendency of crashing right before I get transferred out of cities, not for lack of trying to prevent that!!). I know that it is quality over quantity so I knew I probably wouldn't see a baptism during my time here. In that case, I just wanted to leave with someone who would get baptized. Jelena is the one! 

We are also still working with Carla, who progresses, but on HER time haha. Her sister is sick with cancer and has been healing a lot recently. Carla accredits it to the blessing the elders gave her sister. A certain member has also been fasting every. Single. Week until her sister gets healed. Faith is working miracles and lots of people Carla knows have been noticing. Now Carla has had the chance to bear her testimony about the church to them and she's been super happy about that! The big question of the decade is, though: are five years enough to prepare a Carla for baptism, or should we raise our sights to 2018?? Stay tuned.

We also met with Matteo and Tiziana and had a really cool lesson with them. Less-active member heartbreak, finding new potentials, doing service with members, a visit from Presidente Allen to the branch, and district transfer predictions! They all guessed each others' next city and companion but they all turned against me and predicted my dating and marriage future. So even though I'm the only one going home, I did the same to them. Actually for them I think they really liked it but it was too weird for me because I was like, "holy shiz, that actually is the next step." Anyways, apparently I'm going to have one or two serious relationships to get to the right one about two years from now who will be a partially-ethnic man. Don't ask me where that all came from.

  2. Milan!! The name is enough to take attention of travelers. When I was a student, I have always dreamed about to visit this heaven. There are only a few remains of the ancient Roman colony which will give your eyes peace. I think you have passed a beautiful time in Milan. Sometime people get bothered as they can't manage any tour themselves. As a traveler, I mention all visitors to take help from any of Top Rated Milan Sightseeing Tours & Attraction Ticket company.Because only they can help you to explore gorgeous Venice, magnificent Cinque Terre, beautiful Lake Como or to the Swiss Alps, which boast varied landscape with desirable cost. Milan: Half-Day History Tour And The Last Supper Tickets, Best Of Milan Tour And Skip-The-Line Last Supper Ticket, Skip The Line: Da Vinci's Last Supper & Milan Sightseeing Tickets, Milan: La Scala Theater And Milan Museum Tour Tickets, Milan Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour: 48-Hour Or 1 Day Ticket, Venice Day Trip Tickets are the best option to explore every inner beauty of this city. If you want you can compare them with other from http://www.tripindicator.com/tours/milan/best-last-supper-private-tour-lake-como-day-trip-duomo-terraces-tickets-open-bus-sights.html as they are always active to help visitors.
