Hey family! I am just sitting here in an internet cafe writing on a smartphone while my companion chooses classes for college. Yeah, we definitely just found out this morning that today was the deadline to sign up so we did the responsible thing and went and played calcio with our zone. I'll just take the blame now for that one. Good thing Italy time is ahead! Haha
This week has been anything but chill and slow. My mind is still just spinning trying to process it all! Haha I feel so good though because we have simply just tried and tried so hard. It's been amazing and we've seen so many miracles. I could not servive without those moments of personal study in the morning and then language study and companionship study in the afternoon (we do pranzo and those studies all from 1:00 to usually 4/4:30ish while all the Italians are having pranzo). We take extra time for lunch and then don't eat dinner. That's when my nightly bowl of... *drum roll* granola and Greek yogurt comes in every night when we get back at 9/9:30!! It's so weird how the daily schedule seemed so monotonous and actually exhausting at first, but now has become something I love and can't survive without. Haha
As far as one miracle this week, we went to visit a less-active man (originally from Peru) who has to stay at home with a back brace for many months because he got in a car accident. Anyways it just so happens that his mother came over and she knows absolutely nothing about the church. Well, we were all too happy to help her! Turns out she was very interested and even came to church the next day!
We had many other miracles this week which I don't have time to recall. I would just like to bear my testimony though that I know God has His hand in this work and He blesses us when we are obedient and do our best.
I love you all! Anziano Stucki
