HELLO,  CHESTERFIELD IS A GREAT PLACE! Fredericktown is still doing great, I know because I am sitting here with Elder Bullock!  He is not my new companion, my new companion is Elder Hinton. He is from Logan, Utah. We have been going to a lot of meetings and more meetings and more meeting and the we do a lot of planning! We have found 4 new investigators this week and we hope to find some more! I really like it here so far and as for being a zone leader, I LOVE IT! IT IS THE BEST THING EVER! I love being able to meet withe the president and give him ideas that will help push the mission along!!! So I hate to ask but could you send me some money.  My first day in the big city  I got a ticket. I made an improper left had turn. Traffic is really hard to get used to again. Sorry it won't happen again. But the good thing is that I really love it here =) I hope I can keep up the good work. I have to conduct zone conference. I'm a little nervous about that so please pray for me and Elder Hinton. Our new apartment is small and dirty, hopefully soon it will be small and clean. My new companion is super! he is so funny and amazing and Elder Bullock, who I love, is is our zone.
    My new address is
    Elder Alex Campbell
    14880-1 Tramore Drive
    Chesterfield, MO 63017

Me, Elder Newbi and Lynn.
I know Lynn's wonderful cooking has added more than a few pounds so now I am working hard at loosing weight!

This is called a Boosukie. It is a half cooked, fresh out of the oven cookie with ice cream o the top and brownie batter poured all over the top! It is so good and we only eat them after special events!

Our lovely apartment!

I love that he has Max and Griffins picture on the fridge!

I am sure he will work on making his bed!
Everything is going great in Alton too. Lynn emails me and lets me know what is going on. I am going to miss him so much!   Love,
                                                     Elder Campbell

     We got to go to the arch this week, it was super fun but also super scary cause I am kinda afraid of heights. We got in free and got free pictures and we got to bypass the line. =) It was such a beautiful day, 50 degrees and blue skies! The winter here has been really, really mild!I hope you like the pictures. My time in Alton flew by super fast and being district leader didn't help time slow down. Love ya, Elder Campbell

Not the same old Alex the new and improved Elder Campbell

     Thanks for all the Love >.<  Tell Max he just has to wait another year and I'll try to be a much better brother! I really miss Max and I wish I could of spent more time with him and toughen him up the right way. I almost cry when I think about how much I miss Max and I wish I could of been a better brother.... but I can't wait to get back and get him in shape! I'm gonna beat the crap out of him when I get back >.<
     So the picture is of my study desk... I study like crazy when I get ready for district meeting I hope I can help the district this week. The last 5 weeks have been great for the district, all of our numbers have gone up.=) That makes me so happy!!!! Alma Chapter 26: 13-16 explains how I feel when I get good numbers from my district.
      13. Behold, how many thousands of our brethren has he loosed from the pains of hell: and they are brought to sing redeeming love, and this because of the power of his word which is in us, therefore have we not great reason to rejoice?
     14. Yea, we have reason to praise him forever, for he is the Most High God, and has loosed our brethren from the chains of hell.
      15. Yea, they were encircled about with everlasting darkness and destruction; but behold he has brought them into his everlasting light, yea, into everlasting salvation; and they are encircled about with the matchless bounty of his love; yea, and we have been instruments in his hands of doing this great and marvelous work.
    16. Therefore, let us glory yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.
     I've really grown to love Elder Kennedy!!! No, we don't jam a lot and I don't need a ukulele or guitar. We do sing a lot =) He is a really great singer so that has been really nice to sing with him. Bill one of our investigators came to church again and loved it again and he also came to a baptism and loved that! Things are going really great in the district as well! I hope that I get to stay to see what this district can do=) I love the turtle stuff and the C.D. (Yo Yo Ma and the Goat Rodeo) I love string music so any instrumental. (That means with out singing.) I would love more C.D.s. I love watching the videos on mormon.org they have one about the singer for the killers his name is Brandon Flowers I love it! The music he sings I would listen to =) His solo album is my style of music. =) I am excited to see what happens with transfers. I am 10 months old today time is flying by. (lets hope it stays that way) Tell the family, I love them. If Max and dad read the Book of Mormon out loud to each other they will become closer much, much closer. Dad and Max just need to make the time I know if they will do that blessings will happen =) Please make sure that gets done. That is all I have to say so far =) enjoy life. =)

Love, Elder Campbell
Sorry I don't write more about what I did during the week that stuff just is not very important for me to share, but what those things have done to me is what I like to share and if I don't share it I hope you see it.

     So this week flew by...... William is doing great he was ordained to be a priest yesterday. Bill another investigator came to church and loved it... Now for the kicker! The baptist minister came to church. I hope it really helped him. I feel that he wants to get his family there!!!! I can't wait to see him this Wednesday. I haven't seen him for 4 weeks because of meetings/exchanges. So in the meeting we talked about secret stuff that only I can know>.< actually the mission has set up an evacuation plan. President Clark felt inspired to do so maybe something crazy is going to go down!!! So every time we pray we do 10 push ups! It adds up to about 150 push ups a day. By Sunday we are sore and so that is our rest day. The picture is of us putting spider webs up in Lynn's closet. He loved it.
     The ward mission leader asked us to go visit a less active family so we did and they were way cool. We talked about scuba diving and stuff so hopefully we can get them coming back to church and they can bring thier friends with them. They certified in Piedmont Missouri!!! That is in my old area and I Loved piedmont. The Houghtons are from Piedmont. He was like you have probably never heard of theis place Piedmont and my eyes lit up and in Bonnie Terre north of Fredericktown they have lead mines that have been flooded that you can dive 200+ feet... That is a little scary but it would be fun. I don't know how other missionaries email so much I can't think of anything else to write about. So sorry you'll just have to wait 1 year 2 months>.< bye, Love ya, Elder Campbell

Just be glad I can email because if I had to hand write a little you would only get a letter once a month hahahahahahahahahahahahaha... I still need to write Elder Hartman and Nick Beatty and somebody else I can't remember who!
