Hey mom and dad!  Thanks for the email and pictures, it's always good to see the family.  You're right, I have a couple of buddies in that picture!  It's a hard area they're serving in right now, I think the branch has 0 active members (that's what Elder Jardine said). 

This week's been a really good one with a lot of interesting things and a lot of big changes in the zone.   Elder DeShazer got moved for his last transfer to Rotherham, and I got made district leader in his stead.  So I'm training and district leader at the same time...it's a lot of stress and responsibility, and I honestly don't need any more stress, but I trust God to know what he's doing.  I'm also really going to miss Elder DeShazer a lot.  He's a great guy and is one of my best friends out here in the mission.  Elder Williams is now going to be with Elder Misselvitz, an English-speaking missionary from Germany.  It's a lot of stress on him as well because it means he doesn't have any language support anymore while teaching.  Also I'll be driving within a couple of weeks; I have to take some driving lessons, so I have to pay for that out of my personal funds.  It's like £46 an hour, and I'll have probably 4 hours minimum worth of lessons.  After $100 spent out of my personal funds the mission will reimburse expenses, but initially I have to pay it out of my personal funds, so I need you to move some money into my card's account.  I'm not sure exactly how much but probably so that there's $350 there or so.

I'm about out of time now, so I'll write this week's miracles in the letter I'm working on for you.  Sorry about that :( . This email's a little shorter this week because I've been talking to some Slovaks who happened to be here at the library today (there's a miracle for you--I've never seen any here before!).  I also have to write more to the mission president now with my new calling.   So I'll finish up here, but know that I love you so much.  You're the best family on the planet, and I can't begin to express my gratitude for you.  Keep being the amazing people you are, you're a light to the world and to me :) .

Love, as always,
Elder Brown
