Busy week and another trip to the beautiful Palmyra Temple

Hey guys!                                                                 March 30, 2015

This week was pretty good as usual. Monday, we had p-day and we were able to play some basketball and volleyball at the church. Elder Fauga and Elder Haws are the other elders serving in the Brockport ward. Elder Fauga is really good at volleyball and he wants to play in college for Long Beach. He's from Salt Lake but his family is originally from Samoa. And Elder Haws is really good at basketball but he is the same height as me. He got the short gene in his family... His cousin is Tyler Haws who plays for BYU. Then we started a FHE with some less active members and they have come to church two weeks in a row so that's awesome!

Tuesday, we helped some members move a chair and we had to move it from here to Henrietta! It was good though; we got to see some things like RIT and the city. We also went to Stevie T’s for lunch then we came back and do our usual stuff.

Wednesday, we had zone conference in Rochester and it was great to see all of the other missionaries in the zone and I learned a lot. Then after a few of us went to Nick Tahaus for garbage plates including Elder Longhurst who is related to the Longhursts who live in River Heights. And the owner really likes us and said we could put a signed picture of us on the wall!! So that will be awesome! We'll get our picture in the most famous food place in western NY! Presidents have gone there, talk show hosts like Jimmy Fallon, and dad you were talking about Kevin Hart, etc.... And we get our picture there!! It's kinda a dump and in a sketchy part of town but you can ask anyone in NY about it and they know what it is. 

We did all of our usual stuff during the week trying to find more people to teach and setting up more family mission plans with the members. We did run in to a bunch of atheists this week so that was interesting! We went to the temple on Saturday because it was the ward temple day. I really like the Palmyra temple! It's the only temple in the world where you can see out of the windows, so you can see the sacred grove from inside the temple.

Anyways it was a pretty good week! We have the Because He Lives video to help with the work now too! If you haven't seen it yet check it out! The senior couple, the Ray’s are leaving this week.  They used to live in Hyde Park, but now they live somewhere down by Layton. You guys should go visit them sometime, they are awesome! And she's Neil L. Anderson’s older sister so it sounds kind of weird when she talks about her little brother Neil!

Anyways, have a great week!

Love ya!
