In a Nutshell - I'm Coming Home


Things of note this week:

On Tuesday I got a phone call that went something like this: 
"Hermana Giossi" 
"It's Elder Lowry " He's the Travel secretary and a friend of mine in the mission...great guy
"Hi Elder Lowry! How are you?"
"Great! Just here with the phone call I know you never wanted to receive...I need to know what airport you want to fly home to." 
"Boston...or Logan. Something like that." 
Yeah, so that brought some weird emotions. I have forwarded my travel Itinerary to you. I don't know exactly what needs to happen once I get home. but I imagine I will need to be released by President  Ward...unless they want to reassign me to another area in the Boston mission haha. 

We had a little earthquake the other night. Usually I dont tell you about these things but whatever it was awesome. It happened at 4 in the morning and it was pretty strong. A 6.0 I think. I remembered when I was little and always asked Daddy what earthquakes were like and he said "It feels like someone is shaking your bed" EXACTLY!

I met a woman from Ukraine that has been living here since 1998...she spoke to us in a weird mixture of Spanish, English and Russian. She also sells delicious cakes on the street in our new area.

We went to contact a referral from a member. We got there and she told us that she had already read the Book of Mormon. She finished it in 1 and a half weeks! Less than 2 weeks! And she'd never even met missionaries. It was amazing. We taught her a little and she told us that she is going to pray to know if what we teach is true because even though she read it she hadn't prayed about it. Small Miracles. 

Mom, is everything okay. I don't know. But reading I just felt like you seemed a little down. Hope everything is okay. 

Love you and Miss you!

Hermana Giossi
