The Work Begins... Our First Week!

We went into Queens for mission transfers so we could meet the mission president, Pres. Calderwood.  We promptly ran into Sis. Myers from San Angelo.

We also met the Princes, they're the parents of our daughters' good friend, Joe.  After the meeting was over we got on the road to go to Terryville to teach our first class, it's about an hour from where we live.  Queens is part of New York City, the traffic here is legendary, and I'm very thankful that Elder Bushman is good, aggressive driver ... pretty much everybody here drives like him!  I may have to up my dose of ulcer medicine!!

This is the Plainview Chapel.  We teach 2 classes and go to church here, it's only about 10 minutes away from us.  This building was built about 3 or 4 years before Elder Bushman was here on his first mission (He actually remembers playing basketball here as a young missionary).  It was made from the pavilion that the Church had at the 1960 World's Fair.

Here's the building we teach at in Bay Shore.

This is close to Bay Shore, I finally saw the ocean!
Our Young Single Adult branch had a gingerbread house making contest!  Here's the aftermath!


  1. It's pretty crazy how many people you've already run in to that you know! Cool about the church dad played basketball at!

  2. That is cool that the church is made from an old worlds fair pavilion
