Dear Family,

Well you might be wondering about what the subject of this e-mail
means. Right now I'm in one of the coldest parts of the mission but I
am being transferred again. I have only been in this area for about
three weeks. The thing is that a missionary got sick and had to return
home. So tomorrow I will head to my new area which is called Nago
which is down in Okinawa. I'm a little sad to leave because it has
been a really fun three weeks. I enjoyed being companions with Elder
Liddle and Elder Yamanashi. They are both funny and just incredible

My new companion is Elder Cox and I met him at the beginning
of my mission and we joked around about being companions one day. So
I'm looking forward to working with him. As for this last week a lot
happened and it was amazing. We had a companion exchange, went to the
temple, I gave a talk in church, we had zone conference, and p-day
with the mission president. It has been an enjoyable week and I
learned so much. I spent all week studying and preparing my talk which
was on being thankful for all blessings. I focused my talk on how one
of the biggest blessings is testimony. It turned out alright. I felt a
little more nervous then usual.

I felt like I really got to know who Pres. Gustafson really is. I had a chance to do a practice lesson
with him and I learned so much and I know that he really wants to help
us out. President is also really funny and definitely likes to have
fun. Well I'm running out of time but I know that Heavenly Father is
definitely leading this work. He knows where we need to be and who we
need to meet. I'm so grateful to be a missionary doing what Heavenly
Father wants me to do. I love you all very much and appreciate all of
your prayers.

Love, Elder Gandy
