December 8, 2014

Hi Family,
Yes, I had permission. Haha. I wouldn't have called if I didn't. (Chad called last night and asked to have some music sent.) I didn't leave a message, I never do.  Sounds good that you just pulled those ones out. I was going to tell you not to send the 12 days of Christmas and stuff like that anyway. We are singing for Christmas Zone Conference next week and I needed to get the music this week so I can copy it and get it to the other 2 elders that will be singing with us by Tuesday at Zone Meeting. My instruction on Diligence went well I guess. No one booed or complained, so that's a plus. Instructing isn't all that hard really. My talk went well too. I only had to speak for 10-12 minutes. I thought it went fine.

I got transferred to a little town kind of like Kennett called Hope in the Southwest part of Arkansas. It's a pretty small area, and we just have a branch with about 20 active members. It is looking good though. We have a couple that is looking good for baptism at the end of the month named the Kirby's. They are pretty cool. My companion and I whitewashed in though. Meaning we both got transferred in at the same time, so neither of us knows the area. His name is Elder Zickella. He is a pretty new missionary. Only been out for about 5 months. He is from Jacksonville, Florida. We also found out that we are kind of related. You know Mike and Anna Mae Drechsel that live in Vernal? Uncle Stephens kids. They are his Aunt and Uncle. So that's cool. My cousins are his aunt and uncle! 
We don't have a car this week, we get it on Tuesday at the meeting. I am going to Skype on Christmas. I don't know when or where yet, but I will let you know once I find out. That's about it for this week. kloveyoubye.

I'lll be hoooooome for Christmaaaas..............(next year)

Love, Elder Udy

P.S. Here are some pictures from previous areas.
This is Elder Allred in Kennett at our baptism back in September.
