Note from Kerri:
James' P-day was pushed back till today because of transfers. James called us briefly this morning from his new area, but he did not have time to write emails this week. He is now in a pretty large city called Maringa (it is near Londrina, the mission home). The city is huge and there are many missionaries serving there (a whole zone in this city). His new companion (Elder Cruz) is from Brazil and has been out just a little longer than James. Their new apartment is a house that is pretty big! It has 3 bedrooms because there used to be 3 sets of missionaries living there, but James tells us that many missionaries living together results in a lot of goofing off, so the mission has decided to break them up a little. Their new home has no hot water, but they are hoping to get that fixed soon. He seems happy and excited to be in Maringa. His companion seems like a great guy and a real hard worker. James promised me pictures next week... Thanks for your love and support for James!
