First Email from Montreal!!!!
I'm living in Montreal! It's so cool! Not too cold here yet, and I just heard about the storm last night, it should be here tonight, we'll see how it goes. The new logo is sweet!
So here is the deal. After we got to the Mission home we ate the best food we have in a long time! It was really great! Then we had a little get to know you fireside thing and went to bed. We woke up, ate breakfast, had an interview with President. Then they told us who are companions would be and took us to meet them! My companion is Elder Bell. He is way cool. His cousin is actually coming here next transfer, Mandarin Speaking, so I met him at the MTC. Elder Bell goes home in 2 transfers, and is a great missionary. Our apartment is actually pretty sweet! It's not big or anything but the shower is really nice.
We have been very busy teaching, which is great cause it's better than finding (which is a little intimidating). But we have already gone knocking doors, and we don't have a car, we cover the east half of Montreal so we just use the Metro, and we contact on the Metro (which is probably the hardest part).
Church was in Mandarin, it was so cool! I got to play the piano in Sacrament (I did my best at least) and it was kinda tough to follow the talks... and read the hymns, but it was great! The members are super nice, most of them are YSA age. There is a lot of work to do but I'm loving it.
Also doing E-mails at the Apple store in Montreal is pretty fun.
I say hey to everyone! That is so cool about Jenna and Shannon! They should come here Mandarin speaking! If they get Mandarin sisters. We only have 4 Mandarin Elders, well 5 but one is in French right now. Can't wait to hear where Scott and Mitch go!
Cool story... we were knocking in an apartment building and on one floor we spoke 5 languages! Elder Bell was born in France and moved to Hawaii when he was 14. He is called Mandarin speaking but he served in the Spanish branch and had to learn Spanish, and his last companion spoke Cantonese so was teaching him a little. But ya, on that floor, we used English, French, Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Pretty cool!
So ya life is good, doing the Lord's work. Love you all!
Love Elder Heinzlmeir ...and then he sent this right after (for those of you who know Taylor well...you know he doesn't like fruit of any kind and instantly stopped eating it when he turned 1 year of age...soooo...now you'll understand this next bit...)
Oh and a miracle happened yesterday, we were at a part-member family's house, and guess what they brought out for us.... pineapple! And I took the fork and ate it... without even thinking twice. A true miracle.
