I moved into a new home!

Dear Elder Morain Fan Club,

Hows everybody been eh? I have some news for ya. This morning we moved out of the members home we were living with and moved into another members home! Her name is Sister Hatch and she is 88 years old living by her self. I can actually give the address to ya
609 35th St. SE
Cedar Rapids, IA 52403
That will most likely be my address till I go home! So anyways I am excited to live with Sister Hatch it will sure be a big step up from my last living situation haha.
We had a miracle happen this week. We set a baptismal date with our investigator Morgan Maher and her fiance Paul! They are so amazing. They have some obstacles to overcome before they can be baptized but I have faith they can do it. Morgan is 19 and Paul is 20 and they were found by tracting before I got there. We have taught them a lot and are really intersted in what we have to say.
I am lovin it here in Cedar Rapids! At St. Lukes Hospital we help out escorting patients when they walk in the main entrance. We are still helping the Harveys with their flood house, it is really close to being finished! But I just found out Sister Harvey only has 3-6 months to live. Since the cancer is spread through her whole body there is nothing else they can do. I am amazed at their positive attitude despite this trial their going through. I am reminded that life can be so short, so "Find Joy in the Journey Now" as President Monson teaches us. I am thankful for this opportunity to be a full time missionary here in Cedar Rapids. There are truly so many incredible people here.
Keep it Real
VE Elder Morain
