I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me;
yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy. Alma 29:9

Dear Fam Jam,

Crazy last week in Saint John. For district meeting I had Elder Johnson do the last training on companionship unity and it was really good. I told him that working on a training was to prepare him to become a district leader next transfer and guess what.. he is. Haha. I knew it was going to happen. As for me I don't have to have the extra responsibilities of a leader anymore, which I like but don't all at the same time.

We taught Theron twice this week, once about Tithing and Fasting, which he pretty much seemed to already know. He is on his second read of the Book of Mormon and he also started the Doctrine and Covenants. The next lesson we talked about the Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthoods and how he will be able to receive those after he is baptized.

On Thursday we helped the Hampton elders investigator Judy pick apples from her trees and stack some wood. It is beautiful out here. The country side is where it's at, we don't see as much of the fall colors because we are in the city and Hampton is just outside of it. Then Judy referred us to go help her friend, Rose, who happened to live in Saint John. On Monday we helped Rose do some yard work and put a bunch of things away for the winter. Then we asked if we could come back and teach her, and she said yes.

During Institute we get a call from President Pratt and sadly it turned out to be what I was hoping it not to be, Elder Sulzen's visa came in. And we got him ready to fly to Salt Lake Monday morning. It sucked that he had to leave but he is where he is meant to be. He is a healthy eater and is afraid that he will gain weight from all the meals in Utah, so I'll just have to visit him and bring him some donuts, haha. He would hate me. But for the past three days I have been in a trio. Again. It's transfer week though so it's ok.

I'm being transferred to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where I very well could end up dying there (finishing my mission). I honestly thought that I would never go back because there are very few areas there and I was already there for six months. I'm sad and happy at the same time, only because I wanted to stay in Saint John one more transfer because we have about four baptisms planned in the next transfer. But it will be nice to hear that they happen. This could be the last leg of the race for me, we will see. I have loved it here, there has been some crazy and amazing things that have happened since I have been here and I will never forget it. On to the next.

Love You's!
Love Elder Ray
