Hi Family,

I got transferred to Cabot. The ward that David and Amanda Lynn lived in...unfortunately it was just a little to late because they are in Japan now. Haha. Showed up just after they left. The ward is really nice though. I'm in Arkansas again for the second transfer in my mission. I am serving with Elder Hanson. He is from Montpelier Idaho. It is actually a small town up right next to Camp Bartlett where I worked. So that is kind of funny.

We heard about the blood moon a lot, but it was overcast so we couldn't see it. Some people don't understand that ALL the prophecies have to be fulfilled before the second coming. Not just one of them. That's pretty much it. A pretty slow week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

P.S. We received the following text tonight. Enjoyed having your son and his companion, Elder Hansen, over for dinner tonight! He is doing well. The Murphey's

Hi Family,

I haven't received my package yet. Hopefully it will come tomorrow before I leave. I got the call this morning that I'm getting transferred on Wednesday. I guess they wanted me to visit one last place before I leave. 

My companion and I got to go to the temple today for my birthday, so that was a nice birthday president! Our week was pretty normal besides that. 


Love, Elder Udy

Hi Family,

My companion and I are getting along well. It's kind of hard for us to talk to each other sometimes because we have nothing in common except the gospel. He is a huge sports guy and doesn't do a whole lot with technology or games or performing, so that has been a slight struggle, but it has been good overall. 

We don't usually watch the Firesides until P-day or if we have it on CD in the car. We usually download them and burn them onto CD's though. 

I had to give a talk in church on Sunday too. They wanted me to speak on preparing for a mission and what it's like and stuff. They gave me a day and a half notice. I guess I inherited dad's over preparation, because I was only supposed to speak for 20 minutes, but it ended up at a little over 25 and I still had stuff prepared. It's better than not having enough to say though. That's all for this week! kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

Hi Family,

Some of the blessings we did last week were for sick people and a couple were for comfort and counsel. 

We don't get the whole day off for labor day. Just the normal p-day hours. We went out to eat at Steak 'n Shake though. So that was fun. 

I don't remember Fred Ball unfortunately. (Ken played for his funeral.) We had a funeral in the branch this week though. 

Our weather is starting to cool off a little. We had bike week this week, so it was good that it cooled off a bit. That's all for this week. kloveyoubye.

Love, Elder Udy

PS. A picture of last weeks baptism was added on August 31st blog.

Hi Family,

We had a baptism last weekend for the woman who has been coming to church for a couple of years. That was exciting. She wanted me to baptize her so it was real special. I will send pictures next week. 

Other than that our week was pretty boring. Gave a lot of blessings for some reason this week. I think we gave 8 total. A lot more than usual. Our week was pretty normal other than that though. kloveyoubye.

Love Elder Udy
