Hey family! It was great to hear from you this week. That's super cool that Joseph Leung got back! We have a Portuguese missionary named Elder Castro who is from Portugal that says he knew Elder Leung. He always talked about how well he played the violin and how he had his trainee convinced that he only spoke Chinese and Portuguese until he had to give a talk in Zone conference in English. I don't think I'll have as crazy of an adjustment as he did, we are treated well here in New York. I have seen some poverty though, it has really grown my testimony of the Word of Wisdom and Law of Chastity. If everybody in the world were to live those two commandments the world would be such a good place!
We had a super cool experience this week. On Halloween we were able to contact someone who requested a Bible online. As we left the building which was full of a bunch of crazy people dressed up in Halloween costumes, we talked to the one guy who didn't have a Halloween costume on. He wasn't interested, but he gave us an apartment number for one of his friends. Yesterday we went looking for his friend, who wasn't there, but we knocked on his neighbor's door and got let in by this super awesome family. You never know how the Lord will put people into your path.
I love you family! I hope you had a great week!
