So I was transferred less than a quarter mile down the road (welcome to the mission with the smallest proselyting area in the world). But all is good. I live in a duplex with another set of missionaries, and my new companion's name is Elder Stuller. He was born and raised in Germany until he was 12 years old when he moved to Annapolis, MD. He's a great teacher and really connects with people well! I wish I can be as good as he is with people some day. We are the Zone Leaders for the Hunter West Zone and cover the Hunter 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Magna YSA wards. YSA is so much fun! It is a different type of missionary work but I like being with people my age all the time and teaching people who easily become my friends.

Last night we took an investigator, Jessica, to Julie B Becks fireside in our YSA Stake. Before the event began, Elder Stuller and I were pulled in to a private room with Sister Beck, her husband and some Stake presidents from the area. It was cool to talk with her - she is an impressive lady! I also admire her husband for his charity, humility, faith and devotion to the Lord and his wife. After the talks, Jessica decided to be baptized on Feb 23rd!

Last Saturday, the 2nd, Landon and Lucio had their baptisms. It was great to attend both and bare testimony in both. I attached a picture of Lucio's baptism. The Assitants, Sister Schaiffi and Sister Hinton, from Temple Square helped teach him so they were in attendance along with a car full of other sisters. The service was one of the best I've been a part of!

The mission continues to be a blast and I don't think too often of life before - except for a few thoughts of riding a motorcycle and Longhorn football : )
