16 June 2014

To start off with I’ll describe a little bit more of where I am currently staying.  The apartment that I'm in is actually part of an 1850's schoolhouse so it's pretty cool!   They turned the schoolhouse into 4 separate apartments.  It’s surprisingly in pretty good condition compared to a lot of other old homes in New York that just get trashed. One thing that's not good about it though is that the water tastes horrible.  The well water here is naturally high in sulpher content so it doesn't really taste the greatest and when you turn the shower on it smells like matches but at least it isn't toxic or anything. At least I hope it isn't.  

As for this week we met with our Investigator Jessica who actually has been coming to church now for like around a year but she still isn't sure if she wants to get baptized yet. She is a nice enough person but she seems to be holding back and hiding behind something but we don't know exactly what it is. The visit went well and we answered some of her questions that were actually pretty good and sincere but it still feels like she doesn't trust us 100 percent.  I don't exactly know what happened but I think she just wants to make sure what she's getting into is right for her.  This week we got to go to the temple and do confirmations with our recent converts here in the branch.  Every Thursday evening we go on exchanges with the high priests and elders in the branch and this past Thursday it was pretty funny.  I got to go with some one called William Jones so there were two of us ha ha.  We went and saw a guy who hadn't made it out to church for a few weeks and he came yesterday!   Oh and Heather (idk about Andrew) got her patriarchal blessing a week ago which is awesome!  For some reason the idea of getting that came to my mind pretty strong a few months ago at stake conference and so I was like hey you should ask your missionaries what a patriarchal blessing is so she got it!

We had our patriarchal blessing today and I felt so incredible.  Thank you so much for telling me about it!
