Sept 16

Ok so I'm going to start off by saying that i
love being a misionary in new york
but there is no way i would live here...
its great to visit but no way... so we
moved a couple of weeks ago and our shower
was pretty much garbage... like it
looked great it was newly remodeled and everything
it looked great you turn the
tub on water works fine... but when you turn the
shower on its pretty much
garbage... it was like a mist like impossible to
shower type of mist so i took a
little thingy out of the showerhead and it was a
little better then we decided
to just take the whole showerhead off and it was
almost worth fighting with i
just took baths but i'm one of the shortest ones
in the apartment and the other
elders can't fit in the tub so we told the
superintendant and she was like that
fine thats normal we're like no its not so we
called the mission office and they
called the super and the super was like there's
a new water conservation law and
thats how the showers have to be now and the
mission office sister farnsworth
was like thats a lie get some one to go fix the
shower. it was so awesome so now
our shower works and our superintendant pretty much
hates us. so let me see what
else happened oh yeah we were supposed to have a
baptism on the 5th of sept. and
we got verything ready everyone was there except
kayla who we were going to
baptize. so we waited about an hour which is like
spanish standard time and then
i took another elder with me to go talk to see her
and help her with like her
baby and everything and she basically had the worst
day of her life on saturday.
she was late getting home from a meeting she had so
she had to rush to get ready
her baby was crying for like 3 hours and she couldn't
figure out why the 5 year
old that she takes care of was crying she had no idea
why her aunt and mom both
had to go help her cousin who is about to give birth her
husband had to go to
work she lost the money the she was going to use to get
a taxi and her phone
died so she couldn't even call us to tell us. so it was
kind of a bad day for
her... since then she went to new jersey for a while and
we haven't seen her
since then she pretty much fell of the face of the
planet... we don't know she
won't answer our calls she's never at home oh yeah and
we talked to her brothers
mother-in-law and she told us that kayla's 19 year old
sister in the dominican
republic is lost and no one knows where she is so
basically satan will not let
kayla get baptized and its kinda annoying so we know
that once she does get
baptizd she'll be a verry faithful member for the
rest of her life and her newly
born son will be the most incredible missionary ever :)
at least thats what
we're telling ourselves :) so yeah we've had a lot of fun
recently oh on
saturday i ate more rice than i ever have before and
probably ever will again we
had three dinner appointments on saturday the first
one gave us rice beans and
chicken the second lady Daisy gave us beans chicken
and rice. the last lady gave
us arroz abichuela y pollo or rice beans and chicken.
so it was pretty much a
fun day :) i'm so excited for lissa's baptism i can't
wait to see pictures. its
such a huge moment for her i wish i could be there to
see it :) hey i've got a
question... who if any one is going to post our emails
after brigette leaves? on
the little blog thing? oh so recently our apartment has
been getting way
interested in geocaching but we can't go online to see
the website or anything
so we can't really do any we have a gps and eerything
but we can't get the
coordinates or anything like that so its kinda lame
but oh well we'll figure out
something to do. we just like want to do it on a pday
or something like that
because we aren't supposed to leave our area so the
only places we can go are
like mcdonalds. but we have parks in our areas so
we're pretty sure theres at
least one geocach somewhere oh um if some one from
new york calls answer it. i
gave your phone number to a lady named glennys she's
way nice she gave us like
four boxes of cereal last week and two gallons of milk
and just a ton of food
she always feeds us she speaks english obviously or i
wouldn't tell you to
answer it. she said she called and no one answered and
i guess she like got
offended by the answering machine cuz it says "we just
don't want to pick up the
phone right now." she told me thats just rude. i'm like

sorry its the truth :)
they probably all watched the phone ring when you
called too :) she's such a
nice lady though :) now i think thats it i'm pretty
sure... ok have a nice week
i hope everything goes well.
