This same night Gian Franco asked if he could come to Church with us on Sunday. He is Catholic (of course!) but he has some questions that he wonders about. One of his questions has to do with revelation. To him it makes no sense that God no longer speaks to his children here on the earth. He was intrigued that we have a prophet who receives revelation. We have talked with him a bit about the church, giving him a couple of pamphlets and the New Testament and Book of Mormon stories for children. This night we also gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon and explained that it was a second witness of Jesus Christ and a record of a people that lived on the American continent anciently.
On Sunday he appeared at Church and stayed for the full 3 hours. He agreed to meet with the missionaries and told us he had started to read The Book of Mormon.
During the week he met with the missionaries twice. This morning (Saturday) he called us to say he needed to talk with us about some "very important things." Don't know quite what to expect, but we are going to his house at 4:00 for dinner and a conversation.
