Had a great week this week, and we did sooooo much! We went to St. Peters Basilica (the Vatican) last pday. It was sooo beautiful. We went in the prayer room as well and prayed for a few minutes. It was really special to be with so many other people who want God in their lives and desire to have His Spirit to be with them. Pretty cool :)
CRAZY FHE the other night. So, Carmello cancelled on us, so we ended up just getting pizza with the Anziani that night. Well, whilst we were in the Pizza place, a member, Barbara passed by. We were already planning on visiting with her, so Sister Lovell went to go stop her. Soon after, we went with Barbara, ran into Carmello and his son Emiliano, went to Barbaras house, and had FHE there. Anz. Smith gave a Spiritual thought, and we thought, "Okay, awesome, we shared our thought so now we can show Barbara some Genealogy stuff and get home on time. wellllll, after that, we ended up having a wayyyy heated way long discussion about Temple Prep because Carmello thought that people who are not worthy should not go to the Temple, and he thought that his wife should not be able to go because of something she had done. WOA it got crazy because he kept repeating certain points he did not understand and it took Sister Lovell telling her divorce story a second time (because he did not understand that the story was about her and not someone else the first time) to get him on good grounds with prepping for the temple. ANNNND when I tried to share a scripture in the middle of all this, he went bizzerk and said, "NO! Missionariers should be like Christ and only listen! That is not appropriate right now!" Shortly after, Elder Smith wanted to read a scripture, but thought twice because of how Carmello reacted to me... Oh well, the point is that we acted on our promptings according to the agency of the people who we were teaching.
Also, he accepted our challenge to pray for the first time ever, and he said that he "even closed his eyes once."
