I hit my year mark this week

It's felt like a year since last Monday. I don't know why but this week was long, even with transfers and all. We taught a lot this week; maybe that contributed.
Tonight, being All Hallow's Eve (or Hallowe'en, as most normal people call it), we are strictly not to do any finding after 6. We have an appointment, but if it cancels, we'll probably have to go in early. :(
I'd kinda forgotten, but I hit my year mark this week. :-/ not sure how I feel about it, but there's nothing I can do about it, so... I guess I'll just not do anything about it. But thanks for not sending me a camel. :D
I don't know what President was thinking, making me senior companion. I'm just really not sure. But I'll do my best.

Elder Bentley, my new companion, is a good egg; he works hard, has a good attitude. He keeps me smiling, which is good. He's from Eagle Mountain, UT, and enjoys drawing, programming, and shotgun shooting.

Even though we don't have any baptismal dates right now, we're still looking forward to a White Christmas this December. We'll work hard and, if the Lord is willing, it'll happen.

Dennis, our Recent Convert, received the priesthood this Sunday. Hurrah! Another soldier in the army!
Love, Elder Brown

We nearly got run over

I am not being transferred. I will remain in Lakefield (ward in Greensboro) for the next transfer, possibly two; however, Elder Hurzeler is leaving. I'm sad about that, he's my favorite companion so far. I'm sure the next guy will be pretty cool too, though. Onward!
Slow week this week. Not a lot of news. Most exciting thing that happened this week was that Elder Hurzeler and I nearly got run over (different incidents, same day).

PS I just got a phone call from President Thomas. I'm going to be the Senior Companion in Lakefield this transfer.

I enjoy the work so much

We're working hard and the days seem to blend together and disappear in a whirl of color. Time is speeding up for us, which is a pity. I enjoy the work so much. Transfers are next week, and we're kinda hoping that we don't get transferred. But we've been companions [with Elder Hurtzler] for three months now and that's when rotation usually happens. Either way, we find out Saturday night who's leaving, etc.

I love you! don't forget! 
Elder Brown
