So I found out today that one of my previous companions had to go home. He had some health issues that couldn't be treated out here. Today we got transfer calls, neither Elder Saxey nor I am being moved out of Lewisville 2nd ward yet we were asked to come to transfer meeting tomorrow. We suspect we will be combined with another area in the zone and be in a trio (three companions, us plus another elder) for the next 6 weeks. We will find out tomorrow.

A week ago we had a whole-mission training. The brethren have determined that our mission will use ipads in our proselyting efforts so we had training not about using the ipads, but on the gospel - living obediently, using technology to empower us and not control us. It was an excellent training given by Elder Nielson of the Seventy and Elder Wells.
After the training, we had a mission-wide 5k run. I was just hoping to do decently given how little training I had been able to do. I ended up doing fine, Elder Sorensen, Elder Witkowski (two of my previous companions!) and I ran in a pack for a while till Elder Sorensen pulled ahead, Elder Witkowski fell a bit behind and I was left to chase Elder Sorensen, who finished a bit ahead of me. We did exceedingly well and I was pleased enough with how I ran (though by Trabuco Hills XC standards we were still awfully slow). It has been warming up here in Dallas. The constant rains and storms have ceased and we now enjoy slowly climbing temperatures, this week rising from low 90s to mid to high 90s, not quite hitting that 100 mark yet.
Well, that's a bit of what's going on. Hope y'all are staying strong.
I love you.
I love you.
