My companion is being transferred to serve near our mission headquarters.
I'm being transferred to a ward in a city directly east of our mission headquarters. I'm replacing one of the elders who was in the MTC (Missionary Training Center) with me. My new ward covers a very tiny area because the church is really strong in that city. I'm also excited because it is more likely to get tornadoes.
My new companion and I graduated from the same high school, but in different years. He is about a year ahead of me in the mission. His mom and grandma have worked alongside my mom in community and/or church responsibilities. (It is a small world!)
