:) So Excited :)

Elder Eller and Elder Loveless
So on Wednesday Elder Eller (MTC Comp.) and I were sitting next to each other, and were contemplating what might happen. President reads my name and states that I would be serving in Bloomington in the University ward with Elder Eller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so excited beyond explanation. I feel bad, we were the loudest elders in the chapel...President laughed at us and then said the Lord has special things in store for you two. We then came to the conclusion that we don't have our own debit cards for food, driving privilages and bikes...haha we are going old school in Bloomington. Opening a new area is fun but hard. It is also nice because you have no idea who has been talked to, talk with everyone.
The hardest thing is we teach a lot of college students, and if the students are progressing we have to hand them over to the Zone leaders since they cover the campus and YSA branch. So most of our investigators are ours for but a short time. But I am serving with my cous...Elder Sperry! He is an outstanding missionary :) so excited to work with him!
Elder Eller and I had an interesting experience, we were praying about what to study, so we decided to study, questions of the soul in Chapter 5 of Preach My Gospel...we then later were talking with some college students, and their questions were all answered with the spirit of the Book of Mormon :) I add my testimony to Doctrine and Covenants 17:6 " your Lord and God liveth it is true." I know they live and that the Book is true. It is the keystone to our religion. it does in fact hold the fullness of the Gospel. I love this work so much.
Elder Eller and I spent all of yesterday in Indy because his sister that served in San Jose was getting engaged and his future brother in law got permission from president to have us go and see her. It was the first time in almost two years! way cool experience :) we got to see the War Memorial! I have some pictures to send! Love you all so very much,
Elder Loveless
