Hello again family!

So the big news is that I'm being transferred!  I'm leaving St.
Charles.  We're both leaving, actually.  They are taking out the
elders and putting another set of sisters in!  which is a little weird
and it doesn't happen that often, but it is solving more than one
problem, which just goes to show that President Fenn is inspired.

Anyway, since we were being transferred and yesterday was our last
full day of proselyting, we had asked the Lord to make it the best day
that we had ever had in the St. Charles west area, and our prayers
were answered.  We got to see a lot of good people, and the night
ended with a pretty short notice lesson with two of our investigators.
Their names are James and Barbara, and they are members.  James came
to church last week and had a great time and totally felt the Spirit,
and at this meeting he told us that he wanted to move forward with
this and that God had been answering his prayers.  So now he's on
date!  For March 7th!  And since my new area is literally right next
to this one, I'll probably get to go!  It's going to be great.  And
now Barbara wants to get baptized!  She has told us that she hasn't
felt like she's gotten an answer yet, so we told her that we want to
wait till that happens.  Contrary to popular belief, the mormons don't
just throw anyone into the font.  They need to be doing it for the
right reasons.  So that was awesome!

Yeah, so my new area is the Elgin 1st ward, which is literally the
area directly above my current one.  But it's a shared area with a set
of sisters, and we're in the northern part.  Which has a mall!!! I'm
super excited.  I love the mall.  On preparation days only, of course.
Even though it's an Elgin ward, it's mostly in a city called
Carpentersville.  I've heard several different things about it.  Also,
my companion sounds super cool, and he was half trained by Elder
Rowley, who was in the MTC with me and is super awesome.

So I am sending a package in the mail today that is full of a ton of
stuff that I really like and want, but I just plain don't have room
for anymore.  If you could put it somewhere safe, that would be great.

Other than what I've said, there isn't a whole lot of news.  There has
been a drastic change in the area in the past transfer and it has been
awesome.  Weeks like this are what make me sad that my mission is
going to end.

It's great to hear about everyones missionary efforts back home!
Missionary work cannot succeed if only the missionaries are doing it.
The members really need to be doing the brunt of the work.  So thanks
for helping!  And do we have sisters or elders in our ward back home?

Everything has been great!  And I'll have preparation day on Monday
again!  It's going to be a Pdaypalooza!
