Time to make a move...

Alex is getting transfered!! Can you believe it? After only just a few short weeks in Wamego Kansas, Alex is being transfered to Platte City, Missouri. Welcome to life as a missionary. Just when you think that all of your hard work is starting to pay off and there is no way that you could be transfered now, that is when it happens. But even though Alex won't be in Wamego to finish what he and his companion started, the work will go on. One of the downsides of getting transfered at Christmas time is that now his Christmas presents from home are going to have to catch up to him in a new city. Oh well, Alex will just have to focus on the real meaning of Christmas this week and enjoy his presents from home a little later. Even though Alex doesn't want to leave Wamego, he also knows that there is probably a good reason for this transfer and that there are more opportunities ahead.

Before Alex left Wamego, he wrote to tell us about all of the good things that were happening. They have been teaching several really good people, the youth in the ward have been very involved with the missionary work there and the Wamego High wrestling team is doing well. Alex and his companion even had the local newspaper come and interview them for a story about all of the volunteer work that they have been doing.

Last Saturday night Alex and his companion went to the Wamego branch Christmas party. They also invited several of the people that they are teaching to attend with them. Alex mentioned in his last email that he and his companion sang, I guess, during the talent portion of the party. He said that they sounded OK but they did better during practice. What do you expect from a wrestler! ;-)

Well, with Christmas coming up this week, we also have the opportunity to talk to Alex on the phone. He is planning to call us on Christmas day. That will be the best Christmas present we get this year.

Merry Christmas to you all!
