Transfer time!

So Taylor's letter today is going to be my version from our online chat.  We were able to have a 'back and forth' conversation this morning.  It was great.

So he is transferring to Montreal tomorrow...English speaking area.  He also didn't tell us that a while back, he was made Zone Leader again.  And now, he's being 'promoted' to Assistant to the President.  So he and his new companion, Elder Lopez will be picking up and moving to Montreal tomorrow and then picking up the new missionaries from the airport.  He'll be able to see Quebec City too!  He's pretty stoked.  He's up for anything really. 

We sent him his winter boots because the ones he had last year were not warm enough and he nearly froze his toes off!  So I sent them, along with more baked goodies etc. to his Bishop's house in a package because the mission office is 2.5 hours from I knew he'd get them sooner than later...anyway, the Bishop's wife, Cathy Piper, messaged me the other day and said the package had arrived and they set it aside and went out for a couple hours that evening.  When they returned home, they found the box for Taylor completely demolished and ripped to shreds.  Bubba the dog discovered the box and his sniffer detected the goodies inside.  Clever Bubba.  He couldn't resist.  Tore the thing apart and helped himself.  I told Cathy that Bubba's tummy ache was punishment enough I'm sure and that Elder H. would do just fine with less baked goodies.  She wanted to replace the baking and chocolates, but really, it was the boots that mattered most and Bubba didn't pay any mind to them.  So Taylor and I laughed online together about the whole thing.

The cool thing was that Jenna got her mission call on Thursday (Canada, Winnipeg Mission, reporting Feb. 19th) and we recorded her opening her call and uploaded it to facebook for Cathy to show Taylor.  The Bishop went and picked Elder H. up and took him to their home right away that evening and showed him on the big close to the real deal as you can get from across the country!  I was so grateful for that as Taylor was super excited to be a part of the anticipation of where his little sis would be serving.  They'll be neighbours~  lol  Jenna's mission butts into Ontario and covers all of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  Exciting stuff.

So Elder H. has a busy week of moving and new missionaries and new work for the President.  He's looking forward to his new adventure.

He sent his emails today from the Apple Store on an iPad.  So he just HAD to play with the camera, right?!  I'm glad he did.  Don't ever get tired of that face!
