Sei mesi per andare fino a quando io vado a casa!
Hello, Everyone! So, this week was pretty good. At the beginning of the week, we were Both sick, so we had to stay inside for a couple days. But we are doing fine now, Especially Because We got blessings from the Elders (the guy missionaries). We had a really great week though Because we were Able to stay positive through it all and we even got to listen to the Sons of Provo soundtrack! Haha, it was the best. And, I had a bunch of other good music from Elder Padilla, like songs from Phinneas and Ferb , and a bunch of other Things That kept us upbeat while we were inside.
And, this week, basically all the rest of our promising supporters moved away ... At least for a while. Cornelia went to Romania for the next two months, and Ofori moved to Germany. We are not sure if he will ever move back, but we Gave him the info for His church city and we Told him to text us with His new number as soon as he gets it. Then, we can refer Jim to other missionaries in Germany. It is sad though wayyyy Because we will not be Able to see him for a long time, if we ever see him again. I Hope that we were at least Able to make a small difference for him.
Our last couple visits with him were sort of all over the place though Because this preacher guy comes and tries to speak very loudly over us, and he thinks That He Has to contradict every doctrine That We talk about ... But it all went well Because in the end one of us would distract this man for a while and the other would talk with Ofori. In the end though, we were Able to ask this man to take photos for us and I thought of Sister Bradford with Ofori. :) In short, our last visit with Ofori Necessarily was not what we expected, but it went well all the same. Especially Because He Told us what His Favorite chapter in the bible was (a chapter in Psalms, I think I wrote it down, but I forgot the chapter number).
Hmmm ... Oh! And the ward is really starting to love us! In church, the Bishop thanked Sister Bradford and I for our work and for our Testimonies, and he Said That we are really "good sisters." After That, there were some other people in the ward who came and shook our hands and Told us That we are some of the most "good" sister That they have had. It felt really nice to be appreciated and to know That our love for the people and the church members here is returned to us. I love Taranto. This week we really not have been involved-in the ward Because We as well not have been visiting members and Bringing them spiritual thoughts for the month of invites. It Has Been a really great experience Because there is such a great spirit in the members' homes, and you can really feel That they have a Testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In addition, Sister Bradford and I have so much fun together. We love talking to people on the streets, on buses, everywhere. And we love Taranto. It was really fun, being Able to laugh this week, even in times When Work felt slow. Man, I am so thankful That Sister Bradford and I can do at least one more transfer together.
Welp, that is all I have for now! Love you, Guys! I hope That You all have a great weekend.

PS-Our stamp (stamp) ran out of ink this week and, in the search for a new ink pad, this random guy in a shop toner tried to "help" us by injecting a truck load of ink INTO the stamp! I tried to stop him, saying "Ummm ... do you like that?" And he responded by continuing to take action, saying, "I do not know (I do not know), I never did! (I do not know!'ve Never done this!" Lol, our poor little stamp is now broken, and now we have to get a new one ... At least we got a good laugh out of this though! The ink was everywhere, and it even got on Sister Bradford's neck! It was a pretty funny day.
Another quick note: This week, we went to the hospital again to visit some of our friends from church and friends of people in church. It was really great! I love Bringing people joy When they need it most, and I hope to be Able to continue to do this in the future. Love you, guys.
