I sure love it here in Reggio Emilia. The weather has been wonderful. This time last year I was dying of heat in Ferrara. Now there's an almost constant cloud cover and frequent sprinkles of rain that keeps it all cool. The Italians are amazed. They say they haven't seen a summer this cool for decades. I'm so grateful, I can't stand the heat.
My sister Audrey is now the Sister Burton! Or Hermana Burton, I guess. That's so exciting. I look forward to watch her bloom and grow as a missionary over the next year and a half. I know she will be a great tool in the Lord's hands if she is obedient and chooses to be happy. It's taken me a whole year and a half to get that into my head, so let's hope Audrey learns faster. She's always been smart.
