Happy birthday Ryan! And a new companion!

Well this we had a little suprise to say the least... We finished planning on friday nightand right as we were about to pray we see that President Dibb is calling. We both thought "That's funny..Why is he calling us right now?" So he told Sorella Roth that she would be getting space transfered on monday (even though transfers had already happened last week). He told her that she would be going to Siena to take place of a sorella that was having some heath problems...

Then it was my turn to talk to President Dibb on the phone.. He told me about my new companion and the I would be the senior companion!..haha No! Is what I was thinking in the back of my head! haha I have only been here in Bergamo for only a transfer...I was feeling a little bit stressed realizing that I don't know everything about the city. But as soon as I found out the news I felt such peace that everything would just work out and be okay.. and it has

We picked up my new companion in Milano Centrale....

Sorella Woods or as the Italians call her Sorella Boschi! I love her! We get along so well! SHe is really easy going, loves disney, loves having a good time, happy, she is a hard worker, she went to culinary school and is from Utah. She is wonderful! I love her already! 

We picked up sorella Woods on Ryan's birthday! Happy Birthday ryan! Auguri ryan! haha It was a very happy transfer day indeed. We were able to see Sorella Baer who I lived with in Como for over 6 months with and she is now one of our sister training leaders...I love her so much!

Today we are in Sanremo for pday because Sorella Woods had to go to a cultural class for her permesso in the early morning tomorrow because sanremo was here first city in italy. I almost cried as I saw the ocean as we rode on the train through genova, savonna, and finally sanremo. It has almost been a full year since I have seen the ocean..It was glorious! Mi manca il mare!! It was the Mediterraneo sea too! Blessed be the day! I love sea gulls, felt the wind in my face. I missed the ocean soooo much! 

We had a nice relaxing pday here and enjoyed looking at the beautiful view here. For some reason it is always perfect weather in sanremo. It was nice and warm. We didn't even have to wear are heavy coats for once in our life. I feel blessed to be in this great land! I love italy! I love my life. I love my new companion. I love Bergamo. Life is good.

I love Bergamo and all of the members here. I am so blessed to be in such a good ward in Bergamo. Seriously I am blessed! This week has been very good. Sorella Woods and I are already doing good work together. We have talked to a ton of people and were even able to have a lesson with someone on the train to sanremo. 

It has been a good week. We are going to doing some good things together Sorella Woods and I! 

I love you all. 

love, 
Sorella Rebecca Carter
