The members here are awesome and they all speak English! Whew! Tereza is a ward missionary she served in Independence Missouri she's awesome and she just kept feeding me and feeding me! Ha! There are a lot of Africans here they are all refugees and live in these refugee houses it's so sad but they are so awesome and are such strong members! I finally found out the hardest thing of the mission! Not being able to hold children. There was this little boy who LOVED me! He is 13 months his name is Simone he was pulling at my skirt and it killed me that I wasn't allowed to hold him! His mom is this beautiful African from Kenya she is amazing and got baptized recently and his dad his getting baptized next week! The Elder's asked us to help teach so I taught him the Law of the Fast he just ate everything up he was so ready to have the gospel!
So yesterday I woke up feeling like death! I couldn't move without being super nauseas I had a fever and a mirgrane and horrible stomach pains! (That's what jetlag does to you!) I'm still a little sick which is totally normal so don't worry mom!
Well anyways we spend most of our time on the metro or the bus so we talk to tons of people there! Pray that we find someone this week! I love it here! I know that it's going to be hard but that's okay! The language is hard but I'm understanding a lot more! People love to help me so it's awesome! Also it's so funny because they look at me and think I'm Italian and they go off speaking and I'm just like uhhh nooo! I don't know the language ha! They just all assume that I am. So that's good that I look the part ha!
Well I love you all and I am so grateful to be here in Ostia! It's not the nicest place but everyone is so friendly and there are so many families they are all so cute! I love Italia! I hope everyone is doing well!
Love Sorella Barazoto
