Well this was rather unexpected. 😶 Not only am I transferring, but
I’m going back to the Kagoshima zone! 😱
I am SO excited!! I literally passed right through my third area on the way in! I am now in the small city of Miyakonojo. It’s definitely less rural than my other areas I’ve been in, haha!
Unfortunately I haven’t taken any pictures yet… We have a ton of people we’re working with, and we’re meeting a lot of new people too, so it’s just been crazy getting settled in. It was a little sad saying goodbye to Elder Gass and leaving Yatsushiro, but my new companion Elder Hansen is way cool and the members here are great!
Quick spiritual thought for today: I loved President Nelson’s emphasis on joy in his General Conference talk*! It’s really true that obedience is the only way to find real joy!!
*’Joy and Spiritual Survival’, by President Russell M. Nelson, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (see the November 2016 Ensign issue, or go to LDS.org to listen or read here)
That was about it! I’ll have tons more to report next week! Love you all!! Have a good one.
