October 21, 2013 - Letter Home

Dear Interested Individuals,

Congratulations to those having just received your mission calls!  I wish all of you luck and blessings as you prepare then serve.

We had two people we know get their calls this week and one a little bit ago that I forgot to tell him about.
Whitney Ingram is going to San Fernando California - January 1st
Rowan Bronson is going to South Carolina, Columbia - February 5th
Brandon Evans is going to North Carolina, Raleigh - December 18th

Keep strong Zane!

Zane is the youngest North kiddo and he had his tonsils and adenoids out this week.  He has done really well with this surgery and is well on his way to feeling his best again.

Things are going alright here.  Some people had to be dropped or pushed back.  We shall see what happens there.  We have recently met a man named C**** who came to church.  He was great and is on track to getting baptized.

As the interest in what I eat is ever present, the best meal this week was at The A*****
's.  Homemade tacos which they like to add some ranch too.  I tried it and it was good.

I try to think of questions to add to his letters to get more information but sometimes it tends to be the same questions.  OOPS

We see the other two missionaries often, as the people in the branch found no trouble inviting four as opposed to two young men over to eat.  Elder Anderson and I are very grateful.  Actually went on exchanges this past week with Elder Overson.  It went well.  Exchanges are a 24 hour long switch of companions.

Two more missionaries making four total are now in charge of the West Memphis Branch.  So I was wondering how much they see them.  That is good of the branch members to be willing to feed four young men!

As for waking up, I find no trouble in waking at 6:30.  Staying alert and fully awake the rest of the day is a different story, but in regards to solely the action of waking and rising from bed, I have no trouble with it.

Continue to pray and be specific!  Specific prayers bring specific blessings.

A member that lives in Arkansas said that the missionaries their typically gain about 40 pounds on their missions.  I asked Bryen if he has gained any weight and he said that he has actually lost about 20 pounds.  E

Elder North is not always great with letting us know who is writing him but I know he appreciates hearing from people.  If your interested in writing him you can do so at...
