Well, we went to the transfer meeting on Thursday and I found out my new area and companion. I am now serving with Elder Paulsen (who entered the mission the same time I did) in the Madison Lake 2 area. You got your wish about me getting out of Columbus, Mom. The Madison Lake Branch, which we split with a set of sisters, covers all of Madison County, which is West of Columbus. Our area is half of the county and includes several small towns and a whole lot of farmland. It is a much different area than what I am used to, but it should be a good experience to work here. We live in West Jefferson which has a few thousand people maybe. I am still a district leader. My companion and I are the only Elders in our district, which is weird. Elder Paulsen is from Tooele (can't remember how to spell it), Utah. he seems like a pretty good guy and a good missionary. I've only met a few of our investigators so far. They include a lady named S, a lady named A, and a mother and daughter named D and A. We had a ward activity at the branch president's farmhouse on Friday, so I got to meet some of the members before church happened on Sunday. They seem like great people. One man in the Elders quorum swears I look like John F. Kennedy. That was a new one. I've heard I look like Russell Crowe a couple times on my mission :) I guess I just have one of those faces. On my first day here, we also did service helping a lady set up a haunted forest, which was kind of fun. We basically just moved a bunch of dummies to various locations.I am glad to hear that Ella is here. She looked really cute in the pictures. That is exciting news. It is strange to be an uncle!
