October 27, 2014

This week was a good week.  We played football for p-day which was fun.  The Sister's car is in the shop so we drove them around all week so I spent a lot of time driving.

It is getting cooler here and it is starting to rain a lot.

Friday was a busy day.  We had a service project at an investigator's house.  Then we drove to Bayshore (about a half hour away) to have our interviews with the mission president.  Then we went to our ward's Halloween party, which is where we missionaries got the "wonderful" opportunity to judge the chili.  I'm still alive right now so I guess it wasn't too bad.

We had stake conference all weekend.  Our ward building is the stake building as well so we spent all weekend helping the ward get ready for conference.

I found Arkham Asylum!  On Friday on the way back from interviews we turned into the wrong street.  The street led to a huge psychiatric center.

Monday was p-day.  Tuesday we had our district meeting.  Wednesday was the zone training meeting and I was asked to give a workshop.  Saturday was one of the elders birthday.  He doesn't like cake so we had lasagna instead.

Yesterday was a missionary homecoming.  The missionary served and lives in this mission so our mission president spoke too.  It was pretty cool.

On Halloween the ward is having a trunk-or-treat and a chili cook-off.  We have been asked to be the judges so I am going to have to eat beans.

I have gone to a lot of different stores in New York and they all have one thing in common.  No store in New York that I have gone to has Jalapeno Cheetos.  It is kind of depressing.

It is the 50th anniversary of the World's Fair and the Plainview ward building (the ward I go to) was part of it.  L. Tom Perry held a fireside in Manhattan that was broadcasted to our building.  It was nice to hear from someone who was there the first time the church was at the fair.  He talked about how it doesn't matter what our religious background is, but we should all stand up for religious freedom.

We had dinner at a member's house on Friday and I got to try orchata and cow tongue tacos and they are both pretty good.

Last week I started driving.  After not driving for a couple of months it is kind of weird getting used to it again.

General conference this weekend was really good.  All of the talks were really good and I got something out of all of them.

At transfer meeting we got to watch "Meet the Mormons".  It is really good and I encourage everyone to go see it.  I also encourage you all to invite your non-member friends to go see it as well.  It opens in theaters on October 10th (this Friday).
