ELDER EVERETT ESCOBAR 2/25/2013
We are on the computers earlier today and yes there has been quite a bit of snow. I'm kind of getting tired of it, even though it is pretty and fun to play in. So we haven't really had church for the whole entire span of time that I have been in this area due to the snow, it's kind of ridiculous. And the last snow that we got was heavy and slushy. We have been able to work, but of course the snow does get in the way. I don't know how New Englanders go through this year after year. Eck! Snow is nice every once in a while but not all the time. We have been working with members primarily, as of right now we have 2 investigators and one of them has a baptismal date set for April 21st, there's a lot of work to be done here in trying to pick up the missionary work.
Now about the room. Most of the stuff that you see scattered about the room, is not mine. The stuff on the desk is mine, I always have a messy desk. You should have seen the apartment when I first got here, I'm working on it one room at a time. I have cleaned the kitchen, living room, and bathroom (now the bathroom was filth). Elder Metcalf is not much help in cleaning right now. By the way, on Wednesday we are going to go to Boston to get Elder Metcalf's finger detached from his palm. Then he will be going through therapy. We are going to be getting a membership to W.O.W. (Work-Out World) which is only $10 a month so that we can really workout in the mornings.
So just like last week we went to Brother Ciunci's hockey game and it seems to serve as a good opportunity to share the gospel, by talking to people that are watching the game and it's fun.
Sounds like things have been tough for Elder Morales, hopefully everything continues to go well. It's pretty cool that Dad was able to give Gilberto the Holy Ghost.
New England is beautiful Mom, but you would hate to be here right now. I guess beauty has it's own price (I have some pics of a part of our area).
I'm glad that Aaron got his Eagle Scout Project approved but what is it? What's the project? I don't think you ever specified. Sounds like Aaron is definitely on the ball with things. Danny is growing up fast! Before ya know it he will be a deacon. By the way, Danny I've heard a lot of good things about you from someone (and no it was not just from Mom, Dad, or Aaron) keep up the good work.
It's good to hear that Grandma and Grandpa are doing well, of course extend to them my highest regards for me. And please continue to tell everyone that I love them very much. Continue to stay strong physically and spirtitually. Hopefully, I will have church this week (fingers crossed).
Love,Elder Everett Alan Escobar
