Transfer to Iloilo

Sam has been transferred to the city of Iloilo. It is very different from the areas he has worked in so far. He is the district leader over 12 missionaries. He was very sad to leave the people of his last area on Guimaras Island, but very excited for a new adventure. He is companions with Elder B from Rexburg, Idaho. He says they are exactly alike! Now that might be a problem :) He is happy and loving every minute of it. Before he left Guimaras Island, he participated in a festival called manggahan where they try to eat as many mangos as they can--Sam ate almost 5 pounds! The picture is of him eating mangos. Yum! Also a photo of him with one of his investigator families who he is sad to be leaving. All is good, though. Next month he will have been out 6 months!
