New mission president-President Craven

I'm being transferred; don't know where to but it'll probably be my last area.  Excited; been in Weddington six months and, as much as I love it here, I'm ready for a change of scenery.

President Thomas reminded us that we need to welcome and support President Craven, our new mission president.

Say hi to everybody for me.
Love, Elder Josh

6 1/2 sq ft of pizza

So we said goodbye to Elder Muirbrook this week; he's now in Sweden sharing the gospel. Brother Furner in the ward took him to the mission home, and he flew out at 6:30 Thursday morning. He will be missed.
This week we moved a 900lb stone table made of, well, stone (travertine, to be specific) for a lady moving to California. We actually helped move a lot of stuff. We had a great meeting on Wednesday, an all-day training on missionary work. We learned a new finding idea which should be very successful. Had 11 missionaries at District meeting this week, and afterwards went to a pizza restaurant and, between the eleven of us, ate 6 1/2 square feet of pizza. (that's a lot of pizza!)
Love, Elder Joshua Brown

Bits from the last few weeks

May 28: Everything is going well here. Elder Muirbrook joined us this week. He's waiting on tenterhooks for his Visa to Sweden. He's going to be a great missionary and Sweden is lucky to have him.
Our last Zone Conference with President Thomas is this week, on Friday. Sad, but exciting at the same time.
June 4: Zone Conference was fabulouss. I enjoyed it very much. A zone is two to four districts (a district being two to six companionships).
It's been pretty warm here, though it's cooled down a little in the last couple of days. It's quite pleasant here, actually.
June 11: The work in Weddington is still slow. We have the same two investigators, and Smitty finally came to church last week. He was supposed to come yesterday, too, but he never showed up. We're going to visit him tonight and find out what the holdup is. :)
