February 27, 2017 -- The Sun is Shining!!

HOLY CRAP the best miracle of this week was the weather. It was between 60-70 for like three days. It felt like spring!!!! On Friday it hit 71 which set the record for warmest day recorded in the month of February in Syracuse. I had the short sleeves on and Elder Turner and I were able to go running in shorts and t-shirts. We also had to make a trip to Sonic during happy hour to cool off with some limeades. Life was good. Not only that but people were actually out and were a lot more pleasant than usual. I just wish that the weather would last but I'll take what I can get.
So we got some new missionaries in the ward this past week. One of the them is a brand new missionary named Sister Thompson and the other missionary who came is Elder Vorkink. He is from the best place on Earth... Orem, Utah!!! He went to Mountain View so maybe he could have made a better choice there... Just Kidding.  He is a great guy though and can shred it on the piano!
A little update on some of the people that we were teaching. In this past week, Yvonne's motivation to work towards baptism skyrocketed. She is ready.  The only thing standing in her way is her coming to church more often. She has a lot of health problems which make it hard to get to church. She definitely is going to get baptized one of these days though. Unfortunately we had to put Jean, the British lady, back into the Lord's hands last night (drop). She loved having us come over but she just was not ready to give up her Methodist church. We encouraged her to continue reading the Book of Mormon and said we would be back in three weeks to see if anything changed.
Something cool that's happening soon is the Palmyra Face to Face with Elder Holland. They're performing a song Elder Vorkink recorded for the youth theme this year. It's call "Thy Will be Done." Our mission president tried everything he could so that Elder Vorkink could go and perform it at the event, but sadly it's not going to happen. You should all go check out his song though. Orem represent!!
Anyway the work continues to go on. Things are going pretty good in New York. The sky is blue, the Church is true and life is good.
 Have a great week, Elder Carlile
Sunshine in Liverpool!!
