Hi Family,

That's fun that Cameron came home for a visit. Tell him "Hi" for me and that I miss him. 
Well one miracle is that we baptized last week. That was pretty cool. Baptizing on the first transfer an area is open. 
We had specialized training last week with the mission president. That was fun. It's crazy how much he knows sometimes. I swear he has the bible memorized. 
I am instructing for part of district meeting tomorrow on diligence and I have to give a talk on Sunday about the attributes of a successful missionary. 
We had stake conference this last week and so we just watched it from our building up here. Elder Bluth from the Seventy was presiding at it. Not a whole lot else happened this week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

Hi Family,

I haven't burned the shirt quite yet. I will do it on Friday at our branch presidents house in his backyard after dinner.

I bought a sweater at J C Penny the other day. Sweaters work a lot better for keeping warm down here than coats do. Part of the money I spent went to that, the other part is just on things we needed and stuff. They really should give missionaries some extra money if they open an area. We had literally NOTHING when we got here. I think we got most of the stuff we need now, so I shouldn't be spending as much.

We have some cool people we are teaching. We are teaching a guy who is the son of a Church of Christ preacher and his friend. They are pretty cool. They really like everything we have taught them so far. We have been seeing some really awesome miracles also.

We have quite a few people in our mission on church and government aid. It is a BIG problem in some units here. That's all for this week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

Hi Family,

I burned a shirt on my hump day!!!! :-D It was one that had a stain on it, so I didn't wear it anymore anyways.

We are finding some good people to teach. The branch is growing well still.
Our week was pretty unexciting. I went on exchanges back to Blytheville. I was with Elder Scott. He has been in the field for about 3 weeks now. He is also from Australia, so that's fun.

We have no snow really. Occasionally a light dusting. And it is quite cold now. That's all for this week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

Hi Family,

Dyersburg is pretty awesome. We are having a lot of fun and success here. The branch was good yesterday. There were probably about 60 people there. We have a building that we meet in. It is starting to get a tad bit small though, so we need to turn it into a ward fast to get a bigger building and stuff.

We had a branch Halloween party on Wednesday. It was pretty fun. The branch is really supportive and helpful.

We live in an apartment in town. We actually live down the stairs from the other Elders. Closest sets of missionaries in the mission. Literally downstairs. Elder Ernst has been out for 6 weeks less than me, so I'm senior companion again. We are still getting along well though. I have hump day on Thursday. Not a lot else happened. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy
