May 23, 2011

I am now in Quincy, Illinois! Its a neat story. So I'm still a zone leader and my new companion is Elder Phillips. He's a new zone leader. At transfer meeting there was an interesting assignment given to us. One of the old zones was split and a new zone was created within the mission, The Quincy Zone, and we are the new zone leaders of the zone. Its almost like white washing again. We both got here with no idea what is going on. There are two other missionaries here, one was transferred in and the other is a brand new greenie. So out of the 4 missionaries here only one knows what is going on and he has been out for just a couple of months. We don't have an apartment, we just bunk with the other elders for now. we should get beds today. We went and looked at an apartment this morning. It looks good so we should have a apartment by the end of the week. It's just been very crazy to try and organize everything needed to get a zone running and to coordinate the efforts of 4 missionaries in the same ward. We had to split the area for proselyting purposes. The ward is huge! It's also the only chapel that has a stained glass window. That was neat.
MOTHER!!!!! I have a huge favor to ask of you. do you remember, in a package i sent a while ago, there was a DVD called, "Preach My Gospel" with lettering at the bottom that said "District 2" It was blue with a picture of John the Baptist baptizing Jesus. Could you send that DVD to me over night? We need it very badly and we wont be able to get one from the mission office until next month.
My current address is: 1660 1/2 Kentucky St. Quincy, IL 62301
Sorry I'm a little scatter-brained right now. I can't seem to think straight.
I LOVE YOU. -Elder Hale
