We were asked to substitute in the beginners class of Daily Dose English Class at the church. The two sisters who normally teach the class had been asked to teach a lesson on the restoration and needed someone to fill in for them. We were so glad we were able to do it. It was a treat for us to spend time with the cute students and also the other missionaries who were teaching more advanced classes.
At the end of the class session, everyone met together in the chapel for a spiritual thought. President Waddoups gave the spiritual thought and had all the missionaries stand in front and quote Nostro Scopo (Our Purpose) and explained to everyone why the missionaries were teaching the English class and why they had left their families and education for two years to come to Italy to teach the people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
