March 23, 2015 ~ The Great Lakes are "GREAT!"

Hello everyone!                                                         March 23, 2015

This week was great! I'm really loving the Brockport Ward and all of the people in the ward. My favorite part is we have an awesome ward mission leader who comes with us on teaching appointments and we have five or six others who come with us too to. Sometimes they even set up the appointments for us and call us and ask us if we want to go out on visits. That's really great!

The Elders Quorum President is really awesome too! He is super young also and he went to Utah State. We got our new iPads this week, nothing really different except I lost all of my notes and everything I had downloaded is gone so...

We've still been going around setting up family mission plans with all of the members and I really believe that it is going to work and all of the members are on board. So, we've visited a ton of the active members and done this so that's been the majority of the week. Some members we visited live through this huge Apple orchard right on Lake Ontario! It's huge, and if I didn't know better I would say it was the ocean. We had a family history open house at the church this week for everyone in the community. We also went to the senior center and helped there and the taught us how to knit!

We also found this really nice neighborhood with huge houses the other day so we decided to start tracting that one and the people there are fairly nice so far. We've been able to get two potential investigators from that
neighborhood so far. We're teaching this guy named Lee and he's really cool. He accepts everything we teach. This week we taught him about eternal marriage, temples, and a bunch of deep doctrine stuff and he said it made sense to him. He's going to get baptized but he said he wants to read the entire Book of Mormon first. So, it might be a while.

It's been pretty good weather so far, usually in the 40’s, but yesterday it snowed a couple of inches and it's cold again. But it's supposed to get pretty warm this week!
There are tons of awesome places to eat here; so I'm probably gonna get fat! We went to this bar with a member this week called the stone yard and they have 35-cent wings! And they are the best wings I have ever had!!!

Anyways love ya!

To Dad:

Hello dad! How are things going? You should see how big the Great Lakes are! It's just like the ocean. Also so much good food here in New York! When the family comes out I won't know where to take you because there's so much! This bar called Stone Yard is really cool it's right on Main Street on the east side right next to the Erie Canal and they have the best wings ever!! And they are only 35 cents!! Also there's a diner called Brockport Diner and it's like Angie's but better! Brockport is a lot like Logan but without the Mormons.

Love ya!
