New York is very pretty and very cold! Burrrr!
Let me explain the title… there is a lot of “chocolate” snow here. Meaning there’s dirt roads and the roads are brown like chocolate milk.
On Wednesday, after our long 5 hour drive from Whitesboro to Lake Placid, we ate dinner at Five Guys, which was weird because I didn’t even know they had that outside of Utah. On Thursday we had dinner with the Branch President and his family, the Evans, they were fun. Then on Friday we had dinner with the Stevens, she made a very good soup, and he read us a Japanese picture book that wasn’t even a book at all, they were like large flashcards with a picture on the front and the words that go with that picture on the back! It was very cool (and no they aren’t Japanese either…). On Saturday we had dinner with the Whites and we had pizza from some yummy pizza place and taught their family the restoration. They were a nice family.
Everyone has dogs. At least one. So I got use to them quickly.
I mostly study the Book of Mormon and Preach my gospel and it’s really great… I’m learning a lot! We already taught five investigators at various times. I’m getting a hang of this teaching thing! We have taught the restoration and the Plan of Salvation. It’s so much fun! We also went tracting the other day. No luck, but the sky was pretty 🙂 So that’s a plus!
I get to see my MTC companion when we go to Return and Report after we have been out for a month, so that will be super duper fun! I also love my new companion, she laughs at everything I say. I’m not sure why. 😛 And she also makes yummy crepes! We get along very well.
Yesterday, we moved houses. The other house we were staying at was temporary housing, so yesterday we moved. We have like an entire house! We have a bedroom, a spare bedroom/study full bathroom, a kitchen, a large living area, a laundry room and a coat closet.
New York is so pretty! I also think it’s cool that I am in the city were the Olympics were twice! There is a cute little main street (It kinda reminds me of Park City) where there are a lot of cute shops… and yeah it’s cool! We also pass the Olympic Center is Saranac Lake quite often. The other Elders in our area live in Saranac Lake, so that means they go to the same branch as us! Anyway, They are really cool and they take Single’s Game Night very seriously! Every Monday, there is a Singles Game Night at the church. They play Uno, Ping Pong, Chess and other board games, and Old Maid. Well last night at the end of Old Maid, it was me and another Elder, and we kept passing the Old Maid back and forth. It was really funny!
