Hi Family,

Our meeting with Elder Zwick was awesome. He brings such a powerful spirit with him. 
That woman that was baptized got confirmed yesterday, so that was cool. The scheduled baptisms are in Kennett. That girl is doing well. She is still working on preparing for baptism and all. She has a date for the 12th also. 
We don't have iPads yet, but Elder Zwick announced them and showed us the programs and stuff when he was here. He said we should have them by the end of the year. 
We will watch general conference down at the church building in Blytheville, Arkansas. We will drive down there Saturday morning, watch all the sessions and then spend the night with the other elders in the Blytheville house. Then wake up and watch the rest on Sunday. kloveyoubye.
Love, The Only Elder Udy

Dear Family,
We have a meeting with Elder Zwick from the Seventy in Memphis on Wednesday. It should be good. 
We have a bunch of good progressing investigators. We have 4 baptisms lined up for October 12th weekend. We also had a baptism yesterday, so that's cool. We also have back to back appointments lined up for the next 3-4 days. So we are staying plenty busy. We also have this awesome girl that we are working with now. She called and ordered a Book of Mormon, and then when we brought it to her, she said that she wanted to come to church with us and get baptized and she loves the temple and stuff. So it is awesome. We are super excited for her and how much effort she is putting into the gospel in her life. It will bless her forever.  kloveyoubye.
Love, Other Elder Udy

Hi Family,
I was supposed to be transferred last week, but then I didn't need to be. I am still with Elder Allred. I sent his mom your number so that she could call you guys. Just thought you might like to talk with each other. Your sons are serving together and all. 
Things are still good with those people we are teaching from the Less-Actives. We should be seeing them this week hopefully. 
Our investigators directed Plaza Suite and Superhero Support Group. It was community theater. We have many good investigators and will hopefully be having some baptisms in the next few weeks. That's all. kloveyoubye.
Love, Other Elder Udy

Dear Family,

So it turns out I'm not being transferred this week after all. Which is really surprising. One of the reasons I thought I was going to be transferred was because Elder Allred was supposed to be training. 
The library wasn't open on Labor Day, so we had to use some members computers to write home. We are supposed to be getting iPads soon. We actually have them already in the mission office, but they aren't giving them out yet for some reason. The pilot program was a couple of years ago for them. We are on a pilot program though. We have Book of Mormon download pass-along cards that we can hand out. We are the only mission that has them.
Elder Zwick is going to do some sort of conference while he is here. It is in the next couple of weeks. 
We went to this less active woman's house and she invited us in, sat us down, and told us she had 2 people for us to teach and baptize. So that was awesome. Also, We went to this other woman's house and when she answered the door, she told us that she had been praying for us to stop by that morning. So that's cool. And then We also got to go see a play that some of our investigators directed! So it was a good week over all. kloveyoubye.

Love, Other Elder Udy

Dear Family,

Elder Allred is the one in the picture I sent last week.
The weather has cooled down, but we have a car now anyway. We share 2 cars with 2 other sets of elders in our district.
We do get a lot out of zone conference and stuff. We have Elder Zwick coming this month for a mission tour.
We have transfers next week, and I am most likely leaving the area so yeah. kloveyoubye.
Love, Other Elder Udy
