This week was fairly slow. We had a bunch of people cancel. Next week should be good though.
This week we had a special training meeting for people that were training. It was pretty fun though because we got to teach all of the lessons in order. Each one in under 10 minutes. It was Elder Stone's first time teaching the law of tithing.
Also, we had a baptism. James Thomas got baptized. He referred himself through mormon.org about a year ago. He has been waiting for a long time to be baptized because his mom was NOT supportive of it. He had to wait until he was 18 so he didn't have to have his mom sign the baptism record. He has such a strong testimony though and is truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so super stoked to know him. He is going to grow up and go to the temple and he even wants to go on a mission. We told him he couldn't go until after he was a member for a year. He was a little sad, but it will be alright.
The lady whose sons ran away, one of them came home for one night and then left. The other is in jail. She is still looking for a place to live. Hopefully she will find one soon. We have been giving her a few suggestions on where to look. Missionaries always know where all the apartments are.
Thanksgiving was great. We had some weekly planning to do and then we ate with the Jones family. They are a cool family. After that we went and ate some pie at the Bennions home. They made about 10 pies for everyone from scratch. They were really good. We finished our day by playing some scrabble with them.
We also had an exchange this week with our district leader. His name is Elder Brown and we were in the MTC together. It was a lot of fun being with him for a day. To see how much we have both learned.
Love, Elder Udy
