Happy early April Fool's Day

Dear Elder Morain Fan Club,

How's everybody been? I've had quite the week. On tuesday we did service at the Veteran Hospital and it was a blast! The hospital is the biggest building in Iowa City and Iowa City is known for the best hospitals in the mission. We escort patients all around the hospital and they even hook us up with a free lunch there! We were asked to visit a member who was in the hospital from davenport. She asked for a blessing and that was a great spiritual experience.
On Wednesday I had my interview with my Mission President and it went well. He doesn't know what's going to happen to our 3-some for next transfer yet but I just hope that I get to stay in Iowa City. I really love this area and I feel I was meant to come here. I learned that originally I was supposed to go to Ottumwa Iowa this transfer with Elder Merkley who is my companion. But since the missionary in Iowa City broke his leg, they sent him home and transfered his companion. So the 3 of us were "white-washed" into Iowa City. I'm not saying I'm glad the missionary broke his leg or anything but I am so grateful to be here in Iowa City.
On Thursday we had our Zone Conference and it was a blast. My trainer, Elder Folkman is the new AP now so I got to see him for the 1st time since he trained me, which was almost a year a go!
On friday night we had a great lesson with a 13 year old kid, his mom is less active and he wants to get baptized! They all came to church yesterday and I'm so excited for them.
Well, I hope everyone enjoys General Conference this weekend! I am more excited for it than you can even imagine haha.
Keep it real
VE Elder Morain
