Heeellloooo!! It was so great to get to see and talk to all of you yesterday, even if it was just for an hour or so. Everyone back home seems to be doing great! I hope all of you Mothers had a fantastic Mother's Day filled with lots of good food hopefully. I am here in Groton now and it is a great place to be. A lot of the members of our ward are in the Navy, because there is a huge submaine base right here in the center of Groton. There are lots and lots of families in the ward, and they all seem great. The work is a little slower here compared to Waterbury, but we will get things rolling here pretty quick. I will tell you all more about Groton next week, but today I will just finish up with all of the awesome people that I met during my time in Waterbury. Love you all! Elder Pulsipher
Saying goodbye to Elizabeth, Nate and Javi was definitely one of the hardest goodbyes. Ah man I can't say enough about this family. They have come so far since I very first met them waaay back in November. It took a lot of work, a lot of persistence, but being able to baptize the three of them together a few months ago was one of the best days of my life so far! It was something that didn't seem at all possible when we very first met them, but I am so grateful Heavenly Father made us keep going back there and helped us to never give up on them. I will miss these guys like crazy!
Another one of my favorites from Waterbury, the Alicea family. They are just the coolest people around, they were pretty much our family! They treated us like family, we treated them like family. Bro Alicea is our Ward Mission Leader and is doing a great job, he helps us out a lot. Their son Ethan is the cutest little guy around, but has waaay too much energy for me.
The Schriver Family! They are sooooo awesome, definitely one of my favorites in the Waterbury Ward. Not all of them have been baptized yet, but they will be someday. They are an awesome family and they had us over pretty often. Sister Schriver is a great cook and made some REAL Italian food for us. Their son Steven wasn't at home when I went to say goodbye, so we had to go hunt him down later. Steven was baptized in September and is preparing right now to serve a mission. He is going to be a great missionary and I am excited to see where he goes!
