There's a family nobody likes to meet;
They live, it is said, on Complaining Street
In the city of Never-Are-Satisfied,
The River of Discontent beside.
They growl at that and they growl at this;
Whatever comes, there is something amiss;
And whether their station be high or humble,
They are all known by the name of grumble.
The weather is always too hot or cold;
Summer and winter alike they scold.
Nothing goes right with the folks you meet
Down on that gloomy Complaining Street.
They growl at the rain and they growl at the sun;
In fact, their growling is never done.
And if everything pleased them, there isn't a doubt
They'd growl that they'd nothing to grumble about!
But the queerest thing is that not one of the same
Can be brought to acknowledge his family name;
For never a Grumbler will own that he
Is connected with it at all, you see.
The worst thing is that if anyone stays
Among them too long, he will learn their ways;
And before he dreams of the terrible jumble
He's adopted into the family of Grumble.
And so it were wisest to keep our feet
From wandering into Complaining Street;
And never to growl, whatever we do,
Lest we be mistaken for Grumblers, too.
Let us learn to walk with a smile and song,
No matter if things do sometimes go wrong;
And then, be our station high or humble,
We'll never belong to the family of Grumble!

How are you all? I'm in the middle of my first week. Had some time, so I thought I would start an email to you guys. I'm doing good. We mostly knock doors. It's funny, we call ourselves the blood hounds because all we do is find that we rarely teach in this area, but it is awesome, We knocked like 200 doors today, literally. I am so tired but it's a good tired. Today we saw a precession for Easter where all these catholic people were walking down the street. The companionship that we are roommates with saw one with like 250 people and at the end of it all, they had hung a fake Jesus doll on a cross, They showed us pictures and it was crazy! hahah. I am loving the Bronx. There is so much to see.is General Conference and I will write more after that, so goodnight...... sorta kinda, not really.
In between sessions we tracked because we seriously need to find someone to teach. After we were done, we went to a bodega and got what I can only describe as the greatest sandwich of all time. Chipotle chicken with chipotle Gouda (or however you spell that cheese) with an egg. It was so good! hahah. During the priesthood session we had root beer floats from the ward and that was fun. It's and we are about to study, I just wanted to write you some more, I will continue later. morning
Hey it'stoday in the morning. My companion is in a meeting, so I'm just chilling. hahah. Today seems like it is going to be awesome. We aren't knocking any doors.
It is noworry if this email is super weird, hahah
I will get better at emailing some day, but anyways,we ended up knocking on one door. It was a family from the Dominican Republic and the only spoke Spanish so we are going to have to pass them off to the Spanish elders. But we met a man named Lewis and his wife Sydney and they are awesome. They asked us if we were able to go to their house and we were just like yes of course! hahah. They did like half the work for us.
To answer some questions our apartment address is 2415 creston rd. Our area is pretty ghetto, but I hear if you get below 154th street it gets really bad. hahah. Umm any mail.... goes to the mission office though. If Kyle wants to send ties, there are no rules on ties, anything goes. We haven't taught too much. It's mostly just knocking doors or going to parks to find people. A lot of the people here don't speak English, so I'm the minority. Everyone thinks that my companion is Dominican because he's black. It's so funny.
Right now I am sitting on a subway train and we are going to the temple to play some temple ball (just basket ball in the temple). hahah. We played yesterday at our building and I didn't get to use my half court shot. hahaha. So we will see how today goes.
Another little fun fact.... I guess that I am eating like ten times healthier. hahah. We eat salad and stuff all the time. Unless we are going to a bodega, because there we get the best and the least healthy sandwiches ever. hahah. Chipotle chicken with pepper jack and an egg! It's the greasiest, most delicious thing in the world! hahah
Oh yeah, and today we are going to buy what we call Bronx pants. hahah They are the most ghetto thing ever! The people here are awesome, but they sometimes just dress ridiculously. hahah
So yeah, that's what's been going on here sort of... You can ask questions if anything seems weird or if I didn't explain something well. I am not allowed to talk to much back and forth but I am allowed to receive emails every day and write drafts through out the week. So I will try to answer any questions and tell you everything as much as possible.
