Unlike 99% of the missionaries who received transfer calls on Saturday, when we had interviews with the mission president this past week, President Henrie told me of my transfer a few days earlier. I will be going to North Hollywood, serving with Elder Moon. He just so happened to be companions with Elder Clark at the MTC!
We had a good week, despite being rather busy. We met with Brad several more times this week. He wants to be baptized, but is still not willing to settle upon a date. The bishop talked to Brad at a singles dinner a few days ago and he is very interested in becoming a member of the church and how it is filling a void that he has found in his life. I’m hoping that Brad will continue to progress and I’ll make sure that I am able to attend his baptismal service.
We had a lot of service opportunities this week. We had a large mission-wide service project at Operation Gratitude this week and on Saturday, we helped someone move out of their apartment. They were a non-member family, but unfortunately, they are moving to Las Vegas. They were very pleased and even gave us pizza.
I saw on the Tabernacle Choir website that the new choir movie “Singing with Angels” will be released to theaters this upcoming spring. Make sure to get the word out that your can request the film to be released in your area. It will be yet again a fantastic missionary opportunity. It is filmed on location at Temple Square and has some very spirit filled scenes including in the North Visitor’s Center in front of the Christus Statue. Request the film to be shown in Appleton here: http://www.singingwithangelsmovie.com/#!demand-it/qpl73
