Elder Peper

My Mission Experience

Movin’ On

Tracting in the Rain

It has been a couple of weeks since we received a letter in the mail from Riley.  However, I did have a chance to communicate with him via email this morning and get the transfer news.

Elder Peper is being transferred to Shawnee, Oklahoma.  This city is located about 45 minutes southeast of Oklahoma City.

His new companion’s name is Elder Whitaker.  They have not yet met, but will be meeting tomorrow. Riley must be packed up and ready to go by 7:30 am Wednesday, April 28.  His companion, Elder Jackson, will remain in Burkburnett and it sounds like Elder Whitaker”s companion, Elder Jaynes, will be moving to take Riley’s place in Burkburnett.  So, the two Elders are basically just trading locations and companions.  Elder Jaynes was Riley’s companion in the MTC.

Riley mentioned that the baptism they had last Saturday was awesome and he really enjoyed it.  I am not sure if his upcoming letter will talk about it much, as I have no other information, but he did share a photo:

We are looking forward to the Mother’s Day telephone call next week and also to receiving a letter about his new location, companion, etc.  He is doing very well, although he was under the weather today.  He had started packing late last night because he couldn’t sleep (says he wasn’t tired and was coughing a lot).  The guys plan to play some basketball today and then Riley said he would finish packing at some point after that.

As soon as we hear anything new, I will surely post it here.  In the meantime, you may continue to write him at the address listed.  Thank you all for your support, love and prayers for Riley.  And keep writing–he loves mail!
