Dear Family and Friends,
This was an Interesting week. It was transfer week.
Monday was our P day.
Tuesday we still didn't know what was happening. We just went through out the day just expecting both of us to stay. We were able to meet with Josh. We read about Nephi and him building the ship. We were able to go all the way out to the Crim's house. We went to drop off containers that they had given us with food in them. We were expecting that we couldn't stay since Brother Crim wouldn't be home. Turns out that he was and he let us in and we visited for a while. We had dinner with the Bueschers. Afterwards we had to go to the Stake Center to let Elder Avey interview some one for baptism. We got the call super late informing us that I would be going to Iola, Kansas.
Wednesday I packed and we went by some people to say goodbye. We went by Josh. He was going out to dig holes for post for a Chicken coup. We were able to help him dig. We also saw the Johnsons. We even stop by the sweet shop to say good-bye to Harley. It was sad havening to say good-bye to this ward.
Thursday was transfers. We all meet at the Mission Office. My new companion Is Elder Hansen. We are in the Iola Ward serving in Chanute. I hear it the closest place to the center of the United States. It took over 2 hours to drive to our place. I will be the Full time driver here. It was cool to be able to go somewhere I've never been before. First time serving all in the Kansas side. We had Thanksgiving with the Grams. They had lots of family over. Part of them are members and some are not. We had a hard time talking to people after dinner.

Friday was a good day. We spent the day in Spark and Erie. Visited members. There are like 50 people that live in Stark. We had dinner with the Patton family. It was great. It is funny how everyone is related to part of the town.
Saturday we went out to Attona another town we cover and met some nice people. Tons of room between houses. We taught the Pass family about Eternal marriage. We also saw Carl and Kim, they just got baptized last Sunday. They are going on the temple trip this Saturday so we might be able to go.
Sunday was great. This area is a ward but there aren't tons of people. It is like the size of a branch. We have lots of great people here. We talked about the Book Of Mormon play that is coming to KC and how to use it as a missionary tool. We had dinner with the Taylors. We spent the day in Iola. We meet with David an investigator. He lives right next to members. He had an old video game arcade plus a soda machine on his porch.
I am having a great time here. I hope you have a great week. I love you all.
