Man... these transfers keep going faster and faster. Well, I am officially in a new area, College Park East, so we border my old area in D.C. 3rd, and my new companion is Elder Lott. He is from Ogden, and this is only his second transfer. I am now roommates with my old MTC companion, Elder Fowles, so that will be fun! It was tough to leave Mo-Ville, but I am excited to be here now, I have heard nothing but good things about this place.
As for things in Mo-Ville last week, we were able to meet with the young lady we were teaching again, and she came to church, so hopefully things will continue to go well with her. We haven't met with the young man we were teaching since last time I wrote, and he didn't make it to church either... I didn't really get to say goodbye to him, but Elder Salanoa will take care of everything, so I am not worried.
We were able to meet with another investigator, which was great! It had been like 3 weeks I think, so it was good to be able to talk with him. And then the new mom that moved into the ward, we had a few brief visits with her, and they went well, but she still didn't end up making it to church! So that was a little frustrating, the ward really wants to help her, but she just doesn't come to church, so it is hard for them to do much.
I was able to say goodbye to our cute new little convert and her mom though, that was really good, I will miss them a lot, but we will stay in touch.
Well, it was good to hear from you all! I look forward to it every week! Give Uncle Rick and Grandma my best, I will be praying for them! Love you guys! Have an amazing week!
