He's being transferred!

I'm getting transferred, I'm so excited! 
Hello, Dickson clan!
Guess what? I'm getting transferred again... to Jackson Inner on bike! Just in time for summer! Yay! (uggh) I'm going to be companions with Elder Hansen, who has only been out three months, so that makes me the senior companion... first time! I have to be responsible now... darn! Just kidding! Jackson is down in the Conyers Zone, so I'm going to be near my first area again! It's apparently a country kind of place, so it'll be a change from recent days. I'm kind of sad... I really like this place, and I wasn't really expecting to leave, but I'll go where He wants me to go. Elder Youd is training a greenie; don't know his name, but Elder Youd is picking him up Wednesday, and dropping me off. Got some time to say some last goodbyes. 
This week: 
Kent, our top investigator, is getting ready to be baptized next weekend; too bad I'll miss it lol. As long as it's done by someone with the correct authority, I'll be fine lol. Taught him 4 lessons combined into one; he wants to get baptized as soon as he can, so we're cranking through the lessons. Elder Youd will send me the picture, and I'll send it to y'all. 
Saw the Grueners a couple of times this week; still doing well, just wish she could give up some things so she can enjoy more of the blessings. 
Found out Wednesday Elder Youd was training, so we went up for a meeting in Lilburn on Thursday; it was nice, just long, and I did get to see Elder Bowers, which is a good thing! Poor kid is sunburned head to toe (he has fair skin, so biking in the heat has not been good for him) and is teaching the same people I taught when I was in Conyers, so it doesn't seem like much progress has happened there. After the meeting went to Atlanta's Best Wings (which I hadn't had a chance to go to yet, but is famous amongst missionaries). Wings is like my absolute favorite thing now; I can't go without them! 
Played Frisbee and baseball with the branch; I'm not really good at either, but it's pretty fun still. We got a few gators and less-actives and potential branch attendees to come, so it was definitely worth it! 
Had a pretty good Sunday; I got to see Keya again (she is my first baptism, and she's leaving for Hawaii in a few days), so that was good. Also had a couple surprise visitors at church, which is always fun lol! Taught some returning to activation members (a few who are preparing to go on missions), and also helped set up some of the pictures for the new branch building. 
That's about all that happened this week; it's been kind of slow otherwise. Elder Youd and his greenie are going to be doing a lot of tracting lol! 
So how is everyone? How's the summer? How's sports? I haven't heard from anyone in a while. 
Nothing else to say except I love y'all and miss y'all; I've almost been out a year, does it seem like that long? Won't be too long before I'm just boring Casey again! I got to make the best of what I got left. Church is true, book is blue, and God is a Mormon! 
Love, Elder Casey Guy Dickson
