May 4, 2015

Hello everybody,

I haven't done this in a while so I might as well attempt to start again now.  I am going to hit my 9 month mark this week which is pretty exciting.  I am still in the office with Elder Booth for my fourth transfer in the office and my second with Elder Booth.  The number of missionaries in the mission is downsizing so that means more office work for us.  By the end of the transfer we will be cleaning out 10 apartments.  The worst one is over though.  It was a house in the Hampton Bays, it takes a journey and a half to get there so we were lucky that we only had to take one load.  One nice thing about being in the office for six months now is that I know almost all of the missionaries.

We do a lot of proselyting as well.  This area is known as the place where most of the work gets done.  We are working on reactivating a bunch of families and we also are working with a guy we met a few weeks back.  He is a very humble guy and loves God.  He works three jobs, one in Queens and the other two are in Manhattan so we have to catch him and teach him in the subway which is pretty interesting.  He is excited and wants to be baptized as soon as possible.

One thing I have learned these past few months is that sometimes missionaries focus too much on the numbers.  I have learned that if you don't worry about the numbers and care about the people, the more they want to change.

We have been playing basketball with a bunch of kids and now a lot of them are becoming more and more interested in learning the gospel.
