Dear Friends and Family:
Transfer calls are in! My long tenure as a Zone Leader is finally over. I”m going out to Fukuyama, the farthest area west in our mission boundaries. In fact it is in Hiroshima prefecture. I’m whitewashing it. My new companion will be yet another brand new missionary. This will be my third one. The last two were solid. Let’s hope it stays that way.
The work in this area really took a tole on me. I’m afraid that, at the end of three more transfers, it will be an ambulance rather than an airplane that brings me home. That’s the way it goes. That:s the way it should be. Through those efforts I feel like I left a good mark on the area and, more importantly, I got two young pups started out right to carry on the legacy.
The finish line is in sight. But in this race, the question is not how fast I can reach my destination, but how many people I can bring with me.
All my love and prayers go out to you. Keep ’em comin my way too, eh?
