It's great to hear from you. I hope you had a great Valentine's Day. It sounds like Isaac will be the lady's man of the family. We had a great week this week and some special experiences on Saturday. On Saturday we went to the temple to do baptisms for the dead with a recent convert named V-- (He's Indian and has an awesome conversion story that I'll tell you all about later). While waiting in front of the temple for him to show up Brother S--- (the 80 year old man who we helped get the Melchizedek priesthood in my last area) was walking out with a few members from New Rochelle. He had just been endowed! I had no clue that he would be doing that that day but it was just a crazy coincidence* that I was there. And to top it all off Elder Mackintosh was out contacting people on the street right out in front of the temple so he got to see him as well. It was a pretty amazing experience especially going to do baptisms with V--- for his first time right after. The temple is a really special place.
Today we went to the Tenement Museum with the senior missionary couple that's assigned to our Ward. It was pretty cool, we learned all about what it was like for the millions of immigrants who moved to New York in the late 1800's and early 1900's. New York is a pretty cool place. Our area has so much history. We have the World Trade Center, the UN (which we're touring in 2 weeks), We have most of The Financial District, the Chrysler building, Chinatown, little Italy, and the Empire State Building across the street from where our area ends. How cool is that?! Joseph Smith even walked and did business on some of the streets in the southern part of our area. Well family, that's all from me. Love you!
