Alive and well in Brooklyn, NY. Written June 24, 2013
Things are going well out here. The announcements yesterday at the missionary conference were crazy. Facebook for missionaries? Hanging out at the church all day to give tours? Things are getting crazy here. Of all the times to be made a leader. It will definitely be an adventure and there will be stories to tell.
Also, I got the call the be a district leader here in Midwood, starting tomorrow. I'm not super excited about it, but I guess I might as well step up and try to make something happen. I would much rather stay as a regular missionary, responsibility is not a fun time. But I can't really turn down a calling, so I'm just going to do my best.
Friday was the first day of the big concerts. We got a ride out to Staten Island in the afternoon. Elder Rodger's aunt lives out there and she is very less active, so President Calderwood asked him to go visit her. He got the chance to go with another missionary and have dinner with her and her family while I stayed and played for the concert. It went pretty well, they had maybe forty people show up. That's a solid turn out for an all Spanish concert. Saturday was the concert in Dyker Heights. It was also all in Spanish. I was the pianist of the night there, it was a good time. They had about the same turnout, it was a very nice concert.
I'll hopefully have some investigator stories for you guys next week now that we're back to regular missionary work. Until next time!
