Staying in Fairbanks

Well the transfer is over and today a new one started. Elder Piiparinen is on the road right now driving to Anchorage, and then to his new area in Wasilla. He will actually be serving as a zone leader in my old area and ward, the Knik Fairview Ward. He is pretty excited to be going there, but he is going to miss Fairbanks a lot. My new companion is coming tonight. His name is Elder Fenton. Haha I hope you're reading this Holly. Elder Fenton traded places with me when I went to Whitehorse. He served there right before me. He's coming up to Fairbanks tonight and I'll be training him as a Zone Leader. I'm pretty excited. I only met him briefly in Tok on the way to Whitehorse, but I know that the Thompsons liked him a lot, and so we'll have a lot to talk about. I'm looking forward to this transfer, and I'll still get to see Elder P at ZLC about every month.

Well, the work is going so good here! We are teaching some great people, and I've been learning a ton everyday. We are teaching this girl named Jung, and she is preparing to be baptized soon. We're also teaching this kid named Kitti, and he is going to get baptized soon as well. Everything in the branch is going great. We've been taking prospective missionaries out with us to teach, and one of them left today on his mission and another goes in a month. That's the cool thing about YSA. You can help these guys go on missions and prepare for them. I'm also looking forward to this next week. We will have Elder Paul B. Pieper of the Seventy up here for a Zone Conference. It will be great to have him here and be able to learn from him. Well, everything is great here, and I hope you are all doing well!

Love Elder Squires
