First Transfer!!

I am in Centerville, Ohio!!  I have been so anxious to email you today. My new companion is Sister Savage...funny story, she was Sister Smith's last companion in this area. It is the largest active ward in our mission and I am already loving it! Sister Savage is from San Francisco California and she is actually going home next transfer, which means I will be getting a new companion in August. My week has been great! I am just meeting new people and getting to know the ward and the investigators here. We have a family that is getting ready for baptism in August, which is really cool. The mom is a member and she is just waiting for her son to turn eight so all of her kids can be baptized together. We are also teaching someone that has been learning from the missionaries for 5 years and came to church for the first time last week. I am really learning how to recognize the Spirit. I feel it so strongly and it is helping our investigators to grow. The bishop of the ward is gaining faith in the missionaries. He introduced me to the whole ward and then I said the opening prayer in Sacrament meeting my first week. Everyone is so welcoming. I am coming from a ward that usually had about 100 people at church each Sunday, to a ward that now has over 200 each Sunday. It is so sweet that they all seem to want to become involved in missionary work. My zone also broke the mission record of member presents this week. The record was 112 and we got 128!  So awesome!!! It is stressful in this area but I am loving it. I do have to walk everywhere, but I am getting use to it...good exercise:) I am also serving in an area that has an Air Force Base, so there is a lot of military, it is great! Leaving my last area was sad, but I knew it was time and I was ready. I really missed getting your letter last week. I am glad you now have my new address. I am excited to hear from you. I love you all! Sister King
