Big Duck!

Como estéis?

How is everyone?

One more week down in Riverhead! It's been really cold again. And it snowed a bunch. We had soccer planned on Saturday night as an activity to meet new people. It snowed really hard. For those of you that don't know, Hispanic people really don't like the cold, which is understandable. We went ahead and played anyways in about six inches of snow even though we didn't have anyone show up. Next week were hoping for a better turn out. Everyone has cleats except me, which leaves me at a very large disadvantage... But I'm working on that!
Here the Spanish missionaries use three things to teach people:
scriptures, Preach My Gospel, and soccer cleats. :)

We started teaching Max Cruz this week! He's a really cool guy from Honduras! He is here until the fall, and then he leaves to attend Syracuse. He's incredibly smart, he takes notes during our lessons, and he has a baptism date for April 25th. He is a soccer player and is in incredible shape. Very cool guy.

We are having a blast here in Riverhead! Gotta go! Enjoy the big duck and the world fair grounds!
