April 27, 2015

Hi Family,

I did have one kind of cool experience this week I guess. So I have told you before that we don't tract on our mission. We mostly just street contact and work through members and the area book. I can count on one hand the number of doors that I have knocked on without having some idea of who was on the other side. So earlier this week we were visiting an investigator and I got a strong impression to knock on his neighbors door. After we finished our meeting we went and did that. No one answered, so we left. A couple of days later we were in that area again and I got another impression to try and knock again. We did and no one answered again. So we went about our way. This happened throughout the whole week. Finally yesterday we tried again, and he was home. His name is Brandon and he is very interested in our message. He wants to know more about the restoration and how it happened, and what it was, and why it was important. So that was cool.

We go to the temple once a year now on the month of our birthday. The day of that temple trip actually falls on my birthday this year, so that will be an awesome birthday present. Funny story about the temple though. We had stake conference this week, and we were waiting for the Saturday night session to start, so we (the 4 Dyersburg elders) decided to go walk around the temple grounds. There are some benches back behind the temple that we went and sat down on to think and stuff. About 10 minutes later we got up and went to the front of the grounds to leave, and they had locked the gates. So we got locked into the temple grounds. It was pretty funny. We got some pictures of it I will attach (see below). It was pretty funny. We ended up calling the temple president and he told us how to unlock the gate and get out.

It hasn't gotten super warm and muggy yet. It's been pretty nice lately. That's all for this week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy
