August 5, 2015 Staying in Washington Heights and Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad!
Love Ya!

So I'm staying here in Inwood/Washington Heights/North Manhattan/Little Dominica. Which is sweet because we have had some serious potential show up recently. Elder Buckley stayed too.  We were the only companionship in our zone that stayed the same but luckily, Elder Gallego's staying too so we're still roommates. His companion Elder Gagnon did leave, though, which is a bummer because that guy is awesome but, you know, change is good.  We haven't met the new Elder yet because if they're coming to the city from upstate they don't get here till like 4.

That conference call that we had was pretty sweet, but it was tough to hear (because some missionaries don't know what a mute button is and were sitting in the same room as other missionaries).  But it was a cool idea that will eventually be awesome.  Basically, they announced the new trainers and all the baptisms that the mission's had in the last 6 weeks. I bet in a few months it'll be really cool since we don't actually get to hear from President Smith too much and we will be able to hear if our investigators get baptized after we leave.

The problem with that investigator is that he doesn't want to go to the ward in the Bronx where he lives right now. So unless he says he wants to go to that ward he does have to move to be baptized. It's really frustrating, but it's all good the Lord has a plan for him.

I did get that Moose! It was hilarious! When it came in it was half deflated because of the elevation change but we pumped it up with a basketball pump and he was good to go. I will cherish that thing for my entire mission.

Having transfers kinda kills a Pday because we have so much to do and since neither of us moved we scheduled somebody right when Pday ends at 6 which means that we have to be back and getting ready even earlier.

Nothing really super cool happened this week other than people getting switched around so I'm sorry this was so short. I love you have an awesome week.

Con Amor,
Elder Sam McBride
