Hello people!

This week was pretty sweet! We saw some really great success in our district out here on Long Island. We found a guy that had talked to the missionaries a really long time ago in the city and I guess he just kinda got lost when he moved. We found him and taught him later in the same day. He is really excited for his kids to hear about what we teach so that's really cool.

We also looked up a very old previous and he's ready to be baptized.
Him and his 'wife' are gonna get married soon and then they're ready!
They are from Guatemala and they both speak great English, which is very unusual. We teach them in Spanish though, because it's way more fun.

I went on exchanges with Elder Trujillo this week! It was super fun.
He's columbian, and he's kinda crazy. We taught a guy that is ex Italian mafia and has never served time. Hasn't been caught yet basically. He was a high up in the NYC Italian mafia until he was about thirty or so, and then he was blind. Just like that. Lost 100% of his eyesight. Talk about being struck down!

We also taught a guy who is a Free mason and an odd fellow. He was.....odd. Odd indeed. He retired when he was 27 years old. He is extremely wealthy.

We found huge Jarritos!

Elder Trujillo and I knocked this door for about ten minutes. While we called them on their phone. Yes they were there. We went back about an hour later and they let us in. Pretty funny people.

Rollin' full swag! Possibly one of the best things I've ever tasted. Inca Kola!
