Up Norrth!

Plattsburgh is fun!  We ride bikes and walk.  Thursday and Friday we was soaked wet (this grammar is correct up in the norrth country [prolong the 'r' sound]). 

Elder Perkins is trunky.  He has been writing out his homecoming talk for the past two weeks.  So it is a struggle to work with him.  But he is still a good guy.  Friday night Elder Checketts joined our companionship.  He is our district leader, but his companion had to go home, so we are now a threesome.  We find out tomorrow if this is for the rest of the transfer or not.  We also work with a Senior couple, the Bradley's.  They are fun couple from Utah.

We just had a baptism on Saturday for Diane and her daughter Eve.  The font is literally a hole in the ground (see pictures).  This is the second time I walked into a baptism.  It was beautiful, but got a little scary, because the person baptizing did not get there till 20 minutes after it started.

The branch has about 60-80 people active.  We have a nice building because it was once a big ward with the now shut-down air-force base. 

I can't believe I have been out about a year.  Time goes by so fast.  Both Elder Checketts and Perkins have been out longer than I, so it is a change to be back being the youngest. 

I love you all, and hope you have a great week.
