February 24, 2014

Hi Family,
At zone conference we learned about how we have to convert ourselves, before we convert others and that we all need to stay strong in the gospel and not loosen up at all.
This ward is really good, even better than my last one. There isn't a choir. Our mission leader is awesome and super helpful though. So is our bishop. It is a good ward just ready to help.
We had a baptism on Saturday. A guy named Clarence. He has a cool story. So the Spanish elders found a guy named Nelson. He is a member who was considered less active. He wasn't though. He had just moved and didn't know where the church was. So they ran into him and found out he was a member and called us in to see him. We went in and met him and told him where the church was. He had been reading and studying the scriptures everyday so that he could remain spiritual in his life. He also started to teach his friends Clarence and Kay. They pretty much already knew everything because he was teaching them. So we baptized Clarence on Saturday and Kay will be baptized in the next week or two. On Sunday when Clarence was confirmed, he also was given the Aaronic Priesthood and he and Nelson were both set apart as Ward Missionaries. They are going to do amazing things in that calling. They actually called us this morning to tell us how it was going and that they have a few people in mind that they are going to go and try to teach today. They are going to be keeping in close contact with us and try to teach every person that they meet about the gospel. They are so fired up about it and it is going to be super cool. They want to magnify their calling in every way that they possibly can. They will bring a lot of people into the church that way, and I'm excited to be able to help them do it.
That's pretty much all for the week. Love you!
Love, Other Elder Udy
