Will or won't they stay in the Sapporo Mission!!

Once again we were able to be online with Mike:

Question: Do you think you guys will be transferred back to the Sendai Mission?
 No info about transfers, we figure out on the 23rd of this month. Its been a hilarious random week. Finding, raining like a mad man, almost snowing. Still pretty cold.
  ... Anyway. We had that mission conference that was really cool, then we returned back here. and in a few more days we go somewhere else! haha, its crazy... I`m pretty sure that we`ll go there next transfer... fine with me,... no big deal.
   The phone call home was great! I didnt really get homesick at all,  though. Sure I want to be with the family and do stuff with you guys but I didn't feel that returning back to missionary work was all that hard, though, I really do wish I could spend some time doing stuff with mother. I think I miss those things the most. Just going to the movies spontaneously and bowling or watching masterpeice theatre, those are the most trunky causing ideas. (I have to say I found this adorable, and really showed how Mike feels about his mother)
   I`m really trying to focus on things that are going to help a lot, and its been pretty good.
About the possibility of transferring back to the Sendai Mission:
     Yeah, I have no idea what to expect, but it will be wild.
 Has anything happened with the family? 
 How close is the next little one to be born? (1 month!)
 I cant wait until I can spend time with you guys again.
Question: Did you get our package?
THE PACKAGE!!!!!! yeah, I was soooooooooooooo happy when I got that. I`ve eaten almost all of the beeef jerkey with my companions,a nd all the other stuff in it was perfect! I was so happy, and you even snuck some spikes in there! I couldn't believe it, definitely the greatest gift I`ve ever gotten in my life, perfect, thank you guys so much for preparing it for me! I was really overjoyed when I recieved it.  (I guess care packages are pretty cool)
 I've got to go, its my comp's ( Elder Bigger) turn on the computer. I miss you guys. Our investigators are pretty good, not sure if there are any that are close to baptism right now, but there are a lot of people here that I know We`ll find, so we`ll get them. I can't wait to talk to you guys again. Till next Monday!!!!!!! Have fun and do some stuff, Enjoy doing things you know I cant  do right now haha. Tell the family I love them!
 Love, Mike
