Well, the rumors are true: after eight months in Omaha, I've gotten transferred back out to the boonies. I'm in Columbus, Nebraska with Elder Garrett. He's from Salt Lake City and he's a good guy. Although it was a poignant departure from Eagle Run, we're looking forward to working here together!
Columbus is bigger and flatter than Glenwood, my first area. Glenwood had about 5,000 people and Columbus has about 22,000. The meetinghouse is right on the edge of a cornfield; it's in a little subdivision. I actually like Columbus more: it's a nice little town.
My companion is Elder Garrett. He's from Salt Lake City and has been out about 8 months. He's served his entire mission in the boonies and he's a good guy.
I'm actually a district leader now and all of the other missionaries are Spanish-assigned. We're looking forward to what the future holds and the branch seems really good and supportive.
Love to you all!
