Hey everybody! Its been a crazy week and we had transfers last week so I did not have time to send an email. Hope all is well with you all!
Friday, January 22nd, we got our Transfer calls and I was told I am to be sent to Grand Rapids 3! My new companion is Elder Burton, we came out together, and we are whitewashing, which means we are both brand new to the area. President says this area needs a fresh start and hard work and obedience, and said I could and would need to do that! Saturday and Sunday it was visiting the members one last time and getting a lot of pictures. Bitter Sweet moment leaving my first area. But I'm excited!
Monday we got up and did some last minute packing and I visited Traci and her husband one last time. We left for Lansing around 11 and hung out at the mission office for a few hours until the transfer van came. I got the keys and phone from the previous Elders, and went to Grand Rapids! We got there, I met Elder Burton, loaded all our stuff in the car (it barely fit with both of our stuff) and headed to our area. We had a couple appointments that night and started off the week.
We have had some ups and downs this week. We have gotten kicked out of some neighborhoods, because people claim we are soliciting. Its really sad to see the hardening of their hearts and totally and utterly rejecting this wonderful message. But we have been able to find two new investigators!
Sorry for the short email, but running out of time today. Ill catch you all up next week!
Love you all and have a great week!
Elder Hunter Brown
My new address is 260 Marcell Dr. NE Apt. #4 Rock ford, MI 49341
