October 23rd

Hello everybody! I have been transferred; my run in the Cambridge 1st Ward has ended. I am now serving in the Brewster Branch, which is the farthest east that you can go in Massachusetts. My area is pretty much the entire arm that sticks out into the ocean- it is massive. It would probably take 3 hours to travel across the whole area. Our apartment is about 5 minutes from the beach, but that isn't really a bonus seeing that we are missionaries, and also that it is winter. I'm also training a new missionary, Elder Henson. He is from Surprise, Arizona. He's a pretty cool guy, he's about 6 feet tall, black, and likes to dance. I love him already!

We are in for an interesting experience. The area is huge, the membership in the branch is at around 30 active people, and we are both completely new to the area. It really is equal to getting a new mission call. This will be a ton of fun, though! We are pretty excited to start building the area here.

Not much else to report, still trying to figure out what we are doing here. It is such a change from my last area, it is insane. And I'm driving again for the first time in almost 8 months! Love you all, hope everything is going well.

  1. Sorry to see you go my love!!! In all honesty, thank you for bringing the gospel into our home. Sharing your unique sense of humor and well thought out lesson plans truly helped my children (and i suppose myself as well) to respect and appreciate the value of humility and faith! You are such a great example of all that is good in people and you will truly be missed (particularly at the dinner table)! Please stay in touch when your mission is over ... and KEEP BLOGGING!!!
