Elder and Sister Blattman’s Missionary Weekly Journal
February 4, 2012

We fell into a time warp for the month of January and failed to report in. In short, for the last month we got back into the routine of missionary work. We inspected missionary apartments. Classes started up. We studied and prepared lessons. We pushed our way in traffic driving from building to building to teach and get back. We went out with the Elders several times to visit single women. Over all we got a little smarter and we tried to be a little nicer.
And we searched around and found a new apartment.
We moved from here: (We will not miss those stinky and noisy halls.)

To here:

The center of downtown Jenkintown really does look like Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. Instead of Olivander’s Wand Shop or Borgan’s and Burkes there is a Christian Science Reading Room, a hair salon, and several closed up art shops. We occupy a comfortable studio apartment above a lawyer’s office. The landlord was willing to give us a 5 month lease. Otherwise we would have had to pay for a month after we have gone.
Here’s the whole place but for the closet which is on the other side of the bed.
