Going a Few Fersees Yonder South

Well today is my last day here in Morgantown and it is kind of sad... I am going about an hour or so south to Buckhannon WV to serve with Elder Fielding!!!! I'm so excited! I don't know if I have talked about him much in the past but he was my Zone Leader while I was serving in Portsmouth! I have already served with him on exchanges in the past and am so excited to get to serve with him! I don't know a lot about where he is from or anything but I know he is an awesome missionary and works hard and I'm super excited for a fun transfer!! (I added pics of us)

It has been a fun last week in Morgantown though! Yesterday members fed us twice which always makes for a good day! Good 'ol Wendy's and some pulled pork sandwiches!! But along with that we have been having a fun week! We didn't really find many more people to teach but we were able to meet with Steve and Melanie which was great! Steve read 5 chapters out of the Book of Mormon and it has been so cool to see how much he has progressed in the last few months! I haven't been able to witness all of his conversion but since I have been here he started to read the Book of Mormon, after meeting with several missionaries in the past, and Melanie came to a church activity for the first time in a couple years. It is so cool to be able to be a part of such an amazing experience and to touch the lives of others even if it is in a small way.

Patty and Jenna have gone from being all shy and quiet and always having anxiety to praying in front of people, participating in classes, and lets not forget working on reading the Book of Mormon from cover to cover!

I have loved Morgantown so much and have had so many great experiences here!

Thank you all once again for all the love and support you give me each week!
