Transfers and I'm now in Fort Payne

Hi Y’all,

So I got transferred to Fort Payne Alabama.  Part of my mission covers Georgia.  I had no idea what to think, but when I got here it is like a huge Tremonton, and it really reminds me of Tremonton too.   I LOVE IT!  We cover a huge area, but have a really small branch.  Only like 40 people.   Wow, that’s how many people were in my Sunday school class!  ha ha, not really but still is way small..  There is a lot more stuff to do around here.  We might go to Georgia next week and go the Falls, (big waterfalls).  I really like it up here, but it is starting to get way hot.  

My new companion is Elder James and he is a biker, so we will be biking a lot.  We also started do P90X in the mornings.  I feel like I have my own personal trainer, but its good cause I need to get back into shape.  Elder James is from Indio, California and only has 6 weeks left of his mission.  He is way sweet.
I have already been asked to talk in church on May 13th..  Ha... that was fast.

We have already started teaching 2 new investigators. They are a young married couple named Jason and Maranda. They have set a baptismal date set for May 12th!! So that is real cool.

Our apartment is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with 2 walk in closets.  It is older, but we will make it work. 

So check this out, they have a flea market up here on Saturdays like the one that we go to with Grandma and Grandpa in Yuma. But it is way bigger and it is called trade days.  Well we set up a booth and gave out free Book of Mormons...  Ha... Thinking out of the box right??

Things are going great and I am glad to be here.  I will do my best!  

I’m was sad to hear about Grandpa James. Please tell Uncle Al, Auntie Deb, Madison, Mark and Mallory I love them and my thoughts and prayers are with them.

I’m glad that Markell got that job, that’s great!

Well I’ve got to go, have a great week!

Love you all, 

Elder Anderson
