So I will do a quick letter about transfers. I have been transferred and I do not know yet where I am going but I know I am leaving tomorrow morning. Elder Wallace will stay here and train a new missionary. I don't know where I'm going, who I will be with, or whether or not I still will be the district leader. It will be fun to find out. But I probably will spend my last two transfers in this last area until I go home.
This week was largely uneventful. I knew pretty much that I was leaving, so I wanted to see as many people as I could. The last couple of days have been spent trying to get some pictures of people (if I don't mom will probably kill me ha ha). We had a fun day today going up to grand mesa and hiking and fishing in various spots. I couldn't fish with no fishing pole, so another missionary and I put together a "man vs. wild" spear fashioned out of a knife and a tree branch and tried to spear fish coming up to the lake's edge. We didn't catch anything ha ha. Anyway, it was an interesting and fun time and I got a lot of pictures of the beautiful scenery up there.
A lot of people were sad to see me go, but I think we did really well this week. I've got to pack and such, and that will be fun, but on to the final phase of my mission!

I have just been sent to my new area and I am in Naturita, Colorado, a tiny little town. The ward is not a ward, but a branch. About 20 people or so come to church each week, so this will be a new experience. The area is really gorgeous, but the work is really slow, mostly because we spend about 3 hours a day just driving. My companion is Elder Southworth, who has been out as long as I have, and we are in the library today because he had to finish emailing, so I figured that I would send a quick letter to tell everyone where I was at.
