Hello family

This week was good. It rained this week!!!!! But that's not new news. Lol 

Our ward mission leader just moved away yesterday. We won't have a ward mission leader for a little while, but luckily we have an assistant.

Zone meeting went well. We started really late so they had to hurry through some of it. I had my last interview with President Morby this week. He is such a great guy. I will miss him. This whole mission loves him.

This week we taught the young men and young women how to teach the plan of salvation. It went well and there were a few non members there. It was cool.

I can't believe its May almost. It's crazy. Time is flying by.

On Saturday we helped move a few people. Lots of carrying. It was good.

Our ward had a game night this week. It was just a bunch of board games that were going on along side a silent auction. It was super fun and our investigator came and brought his whole family. They were able to meet the ward a little bit more.

Our investigator that had surgery came to church with her mom this week. It was great. It was the first time that she had been out of the house since the surgery.
We didn't really see anything good come from the Easter season except cancelled appointments. But it's alright. Lol

That's about it.

Love, Elder Udy

The following are pictures of us with our ward mission leader who just moved away yesterday.

The Following are pictures of my companion and me (playing Joseph Smith). It was a good experience.

Funny right?

Hello family,

This week was a super weird week. Our investigator got evicted on false charges. He came to church this week though. It was great. We also had a lesson with his wife this week so that was great. There was a lot of drama though this week down in " The Villa". That's what we call it. Its just a low income housing place in our area.
The daughter of our investigator had more surgery this week so that was pretty dramatic. She was rushed to the ER and everything. They are doing well though. She is healing nicely.

Easter Sunday went fine. There wasn't really anything new or different that happened. Our ward didn't have a party or anything to celebrate. Although, a family in the ward named the Branen's (super cool family) gave us an Easter basket with treats. They are such a great family. We went over for pancakes also.

Also, last night someone doorbell ditched us and left cupcakes on our doorstep. No idea who it is, but they were super good. This ward is so nice to the missionaries. It's great.

I think that's about it for this week.

Love, Elder Udy

Hello family,

I don't think it's normal for my parents to meet my mission president before I do. Hmmm...oh well. I will miss President and Sister Morby a lot! Did you tell him that he has some BIG shoes to fill up here? He is going to have a tough time gaining the trust of everyone here. Everyone loves and honors The Morby's. We'll see what happens though.

I don't know of anything special that we are doing for Easter this week. Maybe we will find something. We will be thinking about Christ a lot though.
This week was interesting. One of our investigators had their daughter move in with them. She expressed desire to come to church as well so that will be awesome. We are excited to get to know her. She is recovering from brain surgery so it will be slow.

In relief society this week we had to dress up as Joseph and Hyrum Smith. I was Joseph. We had to read a script with lots of dramatic feeling. They all looked at us funny. I felt like an idiot, but it went well. It turned out to be a good event. Something I will never forget. We wore outfits that a lad in the ward had from like the 1800's. I'm glad the outfits have changed since then. I know there are pictures out there of me. You might be getting some via email if you haven't already.

We had some good lessons this week. Set a date with our investigator for May. Hopefully it works out for him.

That's about it for this week.

Love, Elder Udy

Hello family,

Today is transfer meeting and I'm staying in my area for another 6 weeks. It's pretty exciting. Same companion also. I have three members of my district leaving so we will have to give the new ones a big warm welcome. It will be great.

I didn't really have a favorite talk. I loved all of them. Elder Anderson had a good talk. Also, President Monson had a good one. I learned a lot from Elder Bednar and Elder Stevenson as well.

This week was kinda tough. We had a bunch of stuff fall through and we had a super hard time finding members to come out with us. Hopefully next week will be better though. Looking forward to good things happening this transfer. The last transfer is in the past and we are going to try and make this one the best one ever!

There is a girl here from Kiel, Germany that is staying with a family in the ward. She is here for a year on an exchange thingy. She is interested in our church kinda. I am wondering if Sheldon or Kendal have been there.

I think that's about it for this week.

Love, Elder Udy
