So, the first thing that comes to mind is... Transfers! I am moving out of Syracuse! I am going to be serving in Kanesville, Utah! My new companion will be Elder Lima. I don't know anything about him but I hear he is a cool guy. I'm pretty excited to be in a new area but I'm also bummed about leaving all the cool people in Syracuse. It was bound to happen sometime anyway. I hear that we will be getting a car though so that will be pretty nice, but I'll probably get fat.
One of the elders we lived with went home this transfer! It was pretty awesome! His family came up from Georgia and we got to meet them. There was also a departing testimony meeting where all the missionaries who finished their missions got up and bore their testimonies to all the people who came, which included missionaries, investigators and recent converts. It was a super cool experience but it was sad to see him go. He didn't want to leave but he was also ready to go home and start his life. It must be a difficult feeling.
The other week we were chased down by a member who saw us walking down the street. He was visiting one of his non-member friends and they mentioned they'd like to ask us some questions. We ended up visiting with some for an hour or so and set up an appointment to come teach them. They are an interesting couple and like to ask some pretty off the wall questions. The wife says that she can hear spirits and that her daughter can see them. They are fairly interesting to talk with them. It's a bummer I'm not going to be able to teach them anymore. I just hope that they listen with an open heart and are able to get the most out of the message that the missionaries share with them.
