3rd Area - Fredericksburg, VA


Elder Wells Martineau

Final e-mail from Fredericksburg

Elder Applegate got his one transfer done in fredericksburg, and is now being transferred. At this rate ill see the whole mission. On that note, did grandma send her easter stuff yet? I already got dad's parents letter, so all good there.

Yes I got grandma applegates stuff already. I am getting transferred because we are losing so many missionaries that alot has to change. Apparently I am needed in another area.

We both got moved out. I am not in leadership thank goodness that I avoided it this time. I would have gotten a call straight from president Wilson.

They will probably do some combining somewhere. The ward next to us Chancellor also got both elders pulled out. I know my work will be wherever I go, so I am not worried about what happens.

Being away from home isn't really all that bad. I know it's not for all too long. Looking at it, I get one third of the way there in just a few weeks. The worst part is a transfer call. That means starting over and getting used to a whole new environment.

It's been fun. I think it's funny that I still have yet to serve in an area for more than two transfers.

(from Mom: Sounds like you are going to be an area jumper.) Yeah. That's been my idea of whats going on. Oh well, there's still plenty of work to do.

(response to asking how he is doing with packing for the transfer and maybe shipping stuff home) For this transfer I look good. I might have to take you up on that in my next move. Especially if I leave in my regular pattern.

I will talk to you in my new area. That's also where it sounds like I can call for mothers day at.
