Email, Monday, November 17, 2014

So i just finished my first week in my new area, Midwood Brooklyn, and
it has a different feel than queens, for one it is a lot cleaner, the
population is mainly Jewish, Russian, or Spanish, and it has been
filled with emotions and some stress.  So Monday i finished visiting
most of the families i loved, didnt get to see them all tho, queens
has a big chunk of my heart, and the majority of that piece is in
rego, Tuesday was transfer day, my new companion is elder Hellewell he
is alot like me, in some ways, but he is cool, was born in VA but
lives in UT, ummm oh! So yesterday we had a super funny story to tell,
so we are knocking this building, and we get to this door and we can
hear people talking, so we knock, wait, knock again, wait... When my
companion was about to turn away i knocked once more, finally we heard
footsteps coming to the door, the door cracked open and we was a
lady's face, her eyes got huge and she screamed and slammed the
door... O.O my companion took that as a no and was about to walk away
cause we heard the chain on the door, but she opened it again and
started talking to us, and so I apologized for startling her, then she
closed the door again! But she unchained the door and opened it up,
she was super jumpy and we told her who we were, she asked if we had
I.D.s so i showed her my ministerial certificate, and apologized again
cause it was in Portuguese, she looked at it for a while as we were
talking to her, but she let us in, apologizing for screaming, but she
was not used to having people over, she had a friend that was staying
with her so we were able to go in, they were high school friends that
kept in contact through college, super fun people, and they just asked
questions, and it was nice to have that working for us, they gave us
herbal tea cause they heard that mormons dont drink regular tea, haha
super fun, at the end she kept telling us how clam she felt that we
made her day a little better,

And we had stake conference at the Marriott center in Brooklyn, cause
the owner is LDS! So it was cool and Elder Perkins was there, of the
regular 70? I dont know, he works with the prophet and the 12 so its

All is well here :) i love yall so very much, im sorry for any wrong
doings i might have done, i pray that yall could forgive me of being a
Elder daniel buffingon

Okay hopefully yall can see the video we heard some loud music, so we
got up on the roof and checked it out, maybe a jewish holiday? Or a
party? Idk
Super interesting tho...
Well ttyl
