Year 1 - Letter 21 - New Orleans, LA


Hey everyone!

Life is great here in the Big Easy!  Starting to get a little bit cold, but that is ok, i'll get used to it!  Pretty good week!  WE HAVE SOMEONE WITH A DATE!

Daniel, one of my first contacts, has a date to be baptized the 17th of November!  I am so excited for him!  I love teaching him, and from what we can tell, he loves learning, so we always have a good time over at his place.  I will let you know how he goes.

Dora is doing well.  We had a Halloween party for the ward, and she brought her family with her, so that was awesome!  We haven't taught her lately, but she is coming along well.

Virginio, has been really busy lately, so we havent seen or talked with him at all, which has us a little worried.  We left him on our last lesson with him on a positive note, so we aren't sure whats up.

Other than that, not much else has gone on this week.  The Halloween party i mentioned earlier was fun!  I liked one family that where dressed in chef costumes, and the dad had a pot with their baby dressed as a crawfish in it.  Quite funny!

Haven't had the opportunity to attend a crawfish boil, but the food here is still good!  The po boys are awesome!  I love having a good salami or shrimp or roast beef po boy!  The Hispanic food is really good as well!  The Hondurans make baliattas, which are flour tortillas, with eggs beans, that awesome white cheese, and Honduran cream, and the rock!  We also have a Venezuelan sister that makes arrepas, which are corn tortillas that are like 1-2 inches thick, with meat, cream, cheese, beans, or whatever.  It is SO GOOD!  I can't wait to show you all!

Well, my time is running short!  Gotta Go!
