Happy Haloween America!

Dear Elder Morain Fan Club,

How has everybody been eh? I hope all is well with everyone. I had an incredible week. On Tuesday my mission president came to my apartment to have an interview(we didn't have interviews at zone conference because Elder Wickman was there) so it was great to talk with him. He told me that I will be getting transferred next transfer, which is 1 week before thanksgiving. I am sad that I have to leave Waterloo and all the memories I've made here the past 3 transfers serving here. I love the members of our ward so much, they have helped out so much and I will forever be grateful to them. I just want to make the most of these last couple weeks here and enjoy the people here while I can serve them.
On thursday I got to go to Cedar Rapids on exchanges with my Zone Leader! I stayed the night in Cedar Rapids with the the Bishop of their ward. It was really fun to see the big city again(its the 2nd biggest city in our mission) Its kinda sad to my perspective of a big city now being in Iowa for 19 months haha.
Yesterday we had the most amazing day at church. A member here just got home from his mission in the Nevada, Las Vegas West Mission. He gave his homecoming talk in Sacrament meeting and it was so powerful. As he was speaking it hit me that I will be giving my homecoming talk sooner than I have been thinking. He gave me inspiration to reallly enjoy these last months of my mission, because I could see that he truly missed being a missionary. He shared a story of when Elder L. Tom Perry came to his mission and he got to talk with him one on one. He told Elder Perry that he was from Waterloo Iowa, and to his suprise Elder Perry told him that he had served as a full time missionary in Waterloo! This truly is a special place and I know that I came here for a reason. I love you all and I hope to hear from you soon and hear how life has been for you.
Keep it Real
VE Elder Morain
