Hello, February 23, 2015
This week was good. We taught our usual less active people during the week, nothing too out of the ordinary. Institute was cancelled this week because not very many of the students were going to be able to come. We went and did some service for some less actives this week and we had to dig through random piles of snow to try and find where he put his logs that he cut up during the summer. It took a while but we finally found them. His wife has 39 cats, which is kinda gross!
On Friday we went up to the temple with the Millers and stopped by a few of the less active members that live a long ways away that we don't usually get the chance to see on the way. Both the members said that they don't want to be part of the church anymore and want their records removed. It's kinda funny, since I've been in Wellsville, the branch has gone down probably ten people because we keep finding people who don't want anything to do with the church anymore. It's sad, but we can't force them to stay a part of a church they don't want to be in. So, on the way to the temple we stopped at this restaurant in Rochester called Crab Shack. It was voted best seafood place in Rochester. Dad you would probably like it. Then we went to the temple and did an endowment session and I was able to turn in some names that I found during family history nights when I was back in Springville. I also noticed that there were a bunch of possible duplicates on family search, so maybe you guys could see what was going on with that?
This Sunday we had church and some people from the temple presidency came and spoke and they were great speakers! Also some members from the Warsaw Branch came to ours because they had to cancel theirs because the pipes broke at their church. Then we had our missionary correlation meeting and dinner with the Millers.
Other than that nothing to exciting going on.
Response To Dad:
I heard Niagara Falls is pretty cool right now. Hopefully I get transferred to Buffalo some time so I can go and see it. I heard it looks a lot cooler from the Canada side but I can't go over there because it's out of the mission and I don't have a passport with me. I got to go to the temple this week again, which was cool. I've seen all of the films now. I guess everyone was talking about temples yesterday. We had some one from the temple presidency and his wife come and speak. They were in the Oakland, California temple visitors center on a mission then they immediately got called to here to be in this temple presidency. They've been home for one week in the last five years because of calls to serve.
Snow caving sounds fun! If you want some snow we've got tons for ya.
