"I am still here in my first area and by the end on this transfer it will be like 8 months, like dad. He said he served 8 months in his first area so it will be the same haha. Elder O'Rourke has moved to the Limerick Zone once more, where he served the first 10 and 1/2 months of his mission. I am excited to serve with my new companion and see what he is like and get to know him more. But it is quite sad that Elder O'Rourke left but I will see him again, we got on really well... I liked him. Oh well we have to move on and get other companions.. it will be another friend I can keep in touch with and be friends with forever.
So my new companion is Elder White, who seems to be a really good, obedient missionary. I am excited to get to know him more and add him to my friends list haha, someone to go visit after my mission. He has been on his mission 5 months so less than me. He is from Riverton, Utah just next to Herriman where the Cranes live. He likes the outdoors like horse riding, boating, fishing. I am excited to get to know him more. I will send a photo of us to show you what he looks like."
All in all, I am happy I am still in Lisburn. This transfer will be a bit longer, it will be 8 weeks so I will be with Elder White for about 2 months. This is because in the next transfer all the new, younger missionaries come. The ones who have decided to come early since the age change for missions. So that should be good! I think we have 12 sisters coming into our mission and there are a lot going home as well I think. So I wonder what is going to happen next transfer with me. But I will have to wait and see where the lord wants me."
