January 27, 2014

Hi Family,
I did remember my camera today so I can show you some pictures from it.

We have had a few new investigators. Mostly from part member families. We should have a few baptisms in February. We ended this month with 6, so it was pretty good. Most places only get 1 or 2, so we are doing something right I guess. The other 4 members of that family I told you about all got baptized on Saturday. When we were preparing them this last week the mom suddenly told us that she didn't feel ready to be baptized and that she wanted to wait, but let the kids do it now. We didn't know how to help her, so we ended up leaving for the night. We prayed and fasted for her the next day. When we went to go and see her that night we had an awesome lesson with her and were able to convince her to be baptized with her family. She said that even though she didn't tell us about the problem she was having, we had answered as if she had. It was like Ammon with King Lamoni in Alma 17. The spirit helped to answer her questions, before she asked them. Fasting really does work miracles.
I also got to ordain one of the people that we baptized before to be a teacher and gave him the priesthood. So things are going well here. 
I had to give a talk in church yesterday actually. I spoke on the Law of Tithing. Everything else during the day seemed to be focused on the family though and how important it is. 
The weather was warm yesterday, but it dropped again last night. and it is supposed to drop even more tonight. Nothing else is really going on. bye.
From, Other Elder Udy
