Transfer week. I am staying in Sylacauga for another transfer. My companion Elder Standifird on the other hand is leaving and going to Mississippi. I will be getting Elder Sharp. I have no idea who he is or anything. But will find out tomorrow. I'm sad to see Elder Standifird go. Today we were supposed to go hike the highest mountain in Alabama. But when we got up it was pouring rain so we just went to Blue Bell instead. (Which we were going to do anyway!) Thank you for all the support. Can't wait to see everyone. My grandma would be happy to announce that were down to 30 weeks :P Love y'all -Elder John M. Gilbert
Note from Mom - Didn't have the heart to tell him it's actually 31 more weeks. I think it has something to do with his two weeks in the MTC instead of three, so he will be out 105 weeks instead of 104... Or maybe it's when the transfers happen so he comes home a week later...? Anyway, we think he'll be home the first week in November .
Hang in there Elder Gilbert - we love you!!! ❤
