October 26, 20015 The Bush

So life is great here in Bushwick! The branch is so awesome! This area had a ton of potential. There's no real existing investigators in our pool but we've got a lot of new ones right now. The most promising one, Luis, just had a medical problem that he had to go back to Ecuador to fix so we are losing him for fifteen days but he has been a really fun guy to work with! He studied religion in university and it is so fun to teach him! He is really looking for answers and I'm confident he will keep progressing when he gets back. Another new investigator we met visiting a less active lady. He is her son and does not want anything to do with religion. We tried to get her to invite him in when we were there but she wouldn't because she knew he'd refuse. Well he popped out in the middle of the lesson to go to the bathroom and we grabbed on to him like dogs on a bone and we ended up teaching him something and getting him to agree to checking it out.

Wish I could write more! I love being a missionary so much! I know that without a doubt, no matter what problem you are experiencing, that answer is to dedicate yourself more to the gospel. I love this
gospel. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

October 19, 2015 Bushwick!

So I have been sent to Bushwick! My new companion is Elder Cottle, he's a stud. We are right in the heart of Brooklyn and I'm really looking forward to this transfer!

We were sure to impress upon Elder Boden the importance of epic end of training photos. We didn't have a Manhattan and seagulls but we did have a courthouse.

This tie has been passed down from trainer to trainee since 2005!
