In our email this morning Jonathan told us he is being transferred. He will travel tomorrow (Thursday) to Collegno (pronounced "co Lane yo" for those less fluent in Italian than me.) We actually got the pronunciation off the internet. It is very close to Turin/Torino home of the Shroud of Turin and the site of the 2006 winter olympics. He will be the "senior" companion. His new companion has been in Italy about 6 weeks. He says they speak Ancora Italian, a dialect, with some regional differences to what he has been speaking. He will be at the foot of the Italian Alps. Maybe a little cooler but not much. He gave himself a little haircut a couple of weeks ago. He says it is one less thing to worry about. Thanks for your prayers and support. We are grateful to be part of such a wonderful family! Friday night is Decatur/Austin and Emma will be cheering from the sidelines!
