Hello Family,Well things just got changed up dramatically here in Canby, Oregon. Yesterday was transfer meeting and I got a new companion named Elder Clark. He is 18 years old and I am follow-up training him. It's interesting. He seems like a super cool guy, but he is either really shy or in shock, because he doesn't talk much. Oh well it will be fun nonetheless. Also, Before transfer meeting we were serving in both wards here in Canby, but they just got split and now we are only in the second ward. Also, what WAS my district just became a zone by itself because of the increase in missionaries. Crazy!

Hello Family,My poison oak is pretty much healed all the way, but I think the scars with be there for a while. You could see the poison oak on my skin as it was totally elevated and red. The steroids that the doctor prescribed helped a ton. The drug seemed to make my skin dry and killed a lot of the skin that was infected. Now it just looks like newly healed skin.

Hello Family,Well this week was honestly kinda dumpy. The 4th of July kinda messed everything up and on top of that I had to go to the doctor and also one of our investigators dropped us.
This week we also had to do a spiritual thought about how to esteem Christ in district meeting. It went alright I thought.
Yesterday one of our investigators sent us a horrible text saying that we were not very good missionaries. It's alright though. We are here to find the elect and at the very least we planted a seed with her and missionaries in the future can harvest her.
I think that is about it. I love you all.Elder Udy

Hello family,Last week was super hectic. We had a baptism on Saturday, which went really well, but preparations for it were sudden. We had to suddenly move one of the investigators getting baptized because of his living situation. Good thing though he did get baptized. Also, another investigator of ours got baptized. Two investigators in one day getting dunked. That is the best.
Good Job Dad!!! I am proud that you were able to step up to the plate and fill in when someone was in need of your help. That's one of the responsibilities of the priesthood. We are called to minister to those around us in whatever ways we can. You never know when you are going to be called upon to use your priesthood, thus we must always be ready and willing to administer to the people around us. Stay worthy and always look for ways to serve those around you.
I think that's about it for this week.
I love you guys, Elder Udy
