This week, we took a quick trip to Caserta and Bari. Then President went to stake conference in Siracusa and Catania. We didn't take enough photos!


Our Catania elders fed the president.

President found a former Italy Rome Missionary at stake conference! He is holding a photo of himself and President Monson when President Monson visited when the Italy Rome Mission was divided to create the Italy Catania Mission.

President with 3 generations of wonderful Italian priesthood holders.

Stake Conference

Today was Rome East Stake Conference. President enjoyed visiting with this wonderful couple!

One of our elders found his sister at stake conference.


President's cousin visited Rome this week and we were happy to have them stop by!


Farewell to this wonderful couple! They have been with us since we started and we will miss them!

My Sister

Years ago I was blessed to be born into a family with an older sister and an older brother. They have been a blessing in my life. A little over four months ago, I asked my sister if President and I could come and stay with her while I dealt with some medical issues. My sister and I ended up spending four months together. She has taken care of me and encouraged me, both in Utah and Italy. While in Rome, on my good days, we saw some sights. Today, she went back home. I will be forever grateful that she is my sister.

Recently, our mission had a very special guest. Most of our mission watched on video. The following photos from Rome show those who were able to attend in person. I wanted to finally post these photos so that we can share the wonderful memories from that day. We are grateful for the spirit this conference brought to all of our missionaries, wherever they were in our mission.
