Auguri e Buon Anno!πŸŽ†

Hi guys :) Buon anno!! Happy New Years!  I can't believe it's 2017!! We were talking the other day about how when we were freshmen in high school and it was almost 2012 and we thought the world might end hahaha. That feels like last week!!

We had a great week despite the majority of our people we work with being out of town for the holidays. 
I'm in love with Napoli

Wednesday was really special. Remember our investigator Veronica who was baptized back in November? She was baptized on the same day as the anziani's investigator Evans. He's been able to receive the priesthood in the past month and he baptized his 9yr old son Joshua this week. It's been amazing watching them progress and now in a year they will be sealed together as a family with the wife who is already baptized. Yay for eternal families!!!

New Years in Italy is insane--especially around the Napoli area! Mammmma mia haha. It sounded like we were in a war movie. We could see easily 40 different massive firework shows just from our apartment window. We couldn't fall asleep until 2am because it was literally shaking our apartment they were so loud and close to us! 

As we start this new year I encourage you all to sit down and make some goals for 2017!! Let's make it great!! I read a few really great talks this week and here are some of the quotes I loved from them:

Last district pic! Holding up what number of transfer we just finished. Going into transfer 8 this week! Time needs to slow down!!!!

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.”
"There is something wonderful and hopeful about the word now. There is something empowering about the fact that if we choose to decide now, we can move forward at this very moment."
"Now is the best time to start becoming the person we eventually want to be--not only 20 years from now but also for all eternity."
"Keep trying. Be believing. Be happy. Don’t get discouraged. Things will work out.’” “I say that to myself every morning,” President Hinckley told a congregation. “If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us.”

I know these things are true and that the Lord will help us with anything we put our mind to if we put Him first in our lives! I love you all and being a missionary❣️ Forza Italia!! Here's to 2017!!
