Hello from Florence:
Isaac was supposed to be transferred to Taft last Tuesday, but there was a change of plans. He packed up and met his new companion, Elder Holmes, and then they each took turns being interviewed by President Layton. After the interviews, Elder Holmes was transferred to a service mission back in his home state of Utah. They spent the day together until someone was able to pick Isaac up that evening. He went back to his old apartment in Bakersfield, but now is in a trio with Elder Haste (Aurora, CO) and his old companion, Elder Summers. So he's back in Snow area, but this time on an air mattress. There are 5 boys and 1 bathroom, but at least now he gets to see the almond trees blooming. He likes both of his companions and even though the change of plans was an initial disappointment, he is happy.
PS- The church has changed email addresses for missionaries. Isaac will still get emails even if you use the old address, but if you'd like to update it to the most current it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
