thank you so much for the emails! my turn to write haha soooooooo lastwednesday, we went to the temple. it was AWESOME. i've been before, but our whole day turned out to be awesome. we had to take the train down to the bronx, and right when we walked in some lady said "THE LATTER DAY SAINTS!" and she called us over and we talked to her and she said she wanted a book of mormon and the missionaries to go over to her house. so that was awesome. then we went to the temple and i saw one of the elders who lived in my last apartment and that made me so happy because he is like my best friend out here. then our temple session went awesome of course. afterwards we went to this place called steak and shake in manhattan.. it was DELICIOUS. after that we had to go home, so we rode the train back and we saw these mexicans playing music on the subway. i recorded them. ThEn we got on the Other train to take us back to connecticut and while we were on there (to make a long story short) i made friends with the train conducter and he let me go into the front of the train and blow the horn and talk over the intercom to everyone that was on the train haha my companion has it on video, so i'm gonna try to get it from him! but it was so cool. it was just an awesome day. other than that, nothing else has really happened.. but uh.. let me explain the money in my account. Up here, we pick up donated coats from burlington coat factory and we take them to a hispanic center where they give them to their clients.. it's a service we do for them. but anyway, when we arrived at burlington coat factory this homeless lady came up to us and begged us to buy her some pants and a shirt so she could get out of her old wet clothes.. she said she had it all picked out already and that it would only be 10 dollars total.. so i felt super bad and i agreed.. so she went and got the clothes and met me at the front and the clothes she picked ended up being 23 dollars.. and i couldn't tell her to take them back if she'll cut it for free.. i know, it's not me to do that, but now i have to.uhmm as for transfers, i still have no idea whats gonna happen.. i kinda wanna stay, i kinda wanna leave.. either way, i'll be happy. and either way, i'll still wait to get transferred to buy another suit. i just think it'll be easier that way! so don't worry, no rush in getting me the money.so how is Sammy doing? tell him i said what's good!!! i want to know how he's doing, i wish i was there so i could kick it with him haha and show him around..but yeah, things are going good i suppose. the work is still super slow here, but we still work hard and try to find. hopefully soon we can get things picked up. I love you guys so much. i hope everything is going well! Tell Karla and Aaron i said hello, and that i want to have a nephew when i come home. cool beans? haha you are all in my prayers, have a good week :)
My area. super slow. there's been 1 baptism in the past 2 years.. and she was deported back to brazil/brasil .. sooo yeah. finding is hard. teaching is hard. but we keep on going. things will pick up sometime, i know they will. our branch is moving to a new building in march that is actually in danbury, so it will be a lot easier for people to get to and from church! right now it's hard for people to go all the way out to newtown, so we hope that when we get our new building, we'll have a lot more church attendance.. cross your fingers.. how is our ward doing?
queens! it was so fun! we got put into groups with the missionaries from the south mission and they were so cool! i don't know if you remember byron schlecty, but he is in that mission, and the elders i was with knew him so they gave me their phone and i got to call him, it was really cool! and while we were there working, some guy invited us over for pasta so we went to his house and we found out he was a federal agent and we asked if he had any guns so he brought all his guns out and let us play with them haha it was so cool! then we left his house and another guy came up to us and told us he ordered pizza for us.. so we got fed twice while we were there! it was so awesome.
sammy is moving in!? that's crazy! but it should be good for him. i wish i was there for that, i love that kid. he could teach me how to dance haha i know you guys will love having him there and will take good care of him.
my suit. i still don't know what i'm going to do. i think i'm going to wait a little bit and maybe wait until i get transferred to buy a new one, because suits take up a lot of space in a suit case and i can barely fit all my stuff in my luggage as it is! so i think i might wait a little bit! but thank you for the money.
we are going to the temple today! that's why this email isn't very good haha we woke up at 5, left our house at 6 to be here in New canaan by 7 to email because we probably won't have time later in the day. and then we have to leave here very soon to drive to stamford so we can take a train down to the bronx, so we can take the subway down to manhattan haha it's a long process, that's why we had to leave so early! but yeah, i'm excited to go down to the city again and go to the temple :)
well, i gotta go so i can send you some pictures real quick, but i love you all so much. be safe, have fun. i know dad's familiar with that phrase haha los quiero mucho, adios :)
