December 30, 2013

Hi everyone,
My skin actually is doing a lot better down here. It isn't as dry as it was before. The humidity is cold but great for my skin.
I sang as part of the missionary choir in a stake thing. I also sang with a few other missionaries in the holiday talent show at zone conference. We sang Christmas songs in the choir, and a medley of Disney songs that we changed the lyrics to at zone conference.
No I haven't set goals for 2014. I write in my journal at night before I go to bed.
Love, Other Elder Udy

I ran out of money this month because it's Christmas.
Zone conference was good. I met Sister Olsen there. It was fun. She remembered coming over and seeing Laurel.
A bunch of alarms went off on Saturday. Thunderstorms, Floods, Tornadoes, etc. We were all fine though.
I should be able to skype home on Christmas. Tentative time is 1:00 or so.
I cut my own hair the other day. It looks pretty good. I'm pretty awesome at cutting hair.
Love, Other Elder Udy

We will be using the iPad for lessons and stuff. They said that we could possibly even skype our parents into our lessons to have them help us teach! That would be cool.

This Thursday we will be having zone conference. The weather is pretty cold. It's not as cold temperature wise as Utah is, but with all the moisture in the air it feels really cold.

I won't be going to the temple for awhile apparently, but I will go at least once before I leave. We have a few good investigators. I can't say too much about them though. They want us to keep their privacy. We have a group of kids in a family we are teaching though. 3 part member families. And a couple of military people. That's all really.

Love you!

December 9, 2013

I'm really short on time today. I still haven't gotten any info on whether I'm skyping or calling home or when it is happening. 
The members aren't too involved at this point. We are trying to fix it. 
Church was cancelled this week because of "ice" and "cold weather" It was really pathetic.
We found out that we will be getting iPads and iPhones next year in January probably, so that will be cool. 
We have baptisms coming up still, but the dates changed because church was cancelled. Talk to you soon!

Church was good. Sister and Brother Swanson are both really nice. He is the High Priest group leader in the ward. They take good care of us. (She sent the picture of Chad last week.)
We did get the waffle recipe and we are getting stuff to make them today. It's just a normal waffle maker. We had thanksgiving at 3 different places. And they were all massive feasts. They make way more food down here than we did at home, and its all really good. I have gotten a few recipes that I will send home. 
Our apartment is always clean (2 people aren't that messy really) and we have a washer and dryer in our apartment so we do laundry whenever we need to. Nothing really to talk about.
The baptismal dates we set are all for separate people. Most of them are from part member families though. Give the family my best!
Love, Other Elder Udy
