Ugly tie contest with the West Memphis Elders
Date: December 9, 2013
Companion:  Elder Morgan
Area:  West Memphis Arkansas

Dear All The People,

Congratulations to Jered on his talk!  I know he dislikes being put on the spot for a lot of things.  I remember going to the hot chocolate thing form last year and I do recall that Jered wasn't there...I also do not remember why though.  Sounds like the farewell was delicious and fun time for all!  Everyone look ahead, because a lot of the same menu items should be turning up again when I get back.  (Hinthintnudgenudge)

Jered, Elder Bryen North's brother who is a year younger than him to the day will get set apart as a missionary in a few hours and leave for Guatemala tomorrow.  Guess the meatballs sounded good to him that he is having to hint at them already.  HEHEHE

Best of luck to Sierra Samowitz on her mission!  Use your time to prepare well, both as preparation and as doing things you will be giving up for a short time.  If there is anything I know for sure it is the fact that it is indeed a SHORT TIME.  Already I've been here half a year and I've only just arrived.  Soon I'll feel departure near (and likely try to hide).  For leaving the mission's no easy thing, any RM will tell.  You meet and love the people here and hate to give farewells.

Sierra is a friend who got her call to Japan and leaves April 14th.

Joe is a cute kid, we have fun together.

Joe is a members kid.  His mom who I am not friends with on Facebook related this story to me.  She said her boy Joe really likes Elder North and that they even look alike with both wearing glasses.  She said Joe is very finicky about food, so now when we (and his Primary teachers) want him to try something, we tell him, "Really?  Well, Elder North really like it and thought you would too."  They went to this members house for Thanksgiving and had an ugly tie contest, Bryen didn't win.  Guess we need to send him ugly ties for Christmas.  HAHA  On Thanksgiving Elder North had everyone captive trying to solve the riddle of how the circus midget killed himself.  He also had sweet potatoes for the first time that he remembered.  He thought they were carrots.  Well Jed and I don't like sweet potatoes so he doesn't get them from us but Grandma North always makes them.  He must have never ventured there.  :)

You can thank Brother Eric Jones for the pictures and his wife for arranging them.  Speaking of thanks, thanks once again to Grandma Mary for her postcard.  I now feel the pain of sending something and then not being sure if it arrived.  I will try much, much harder to acknowledge mail I receive.  Thank you Jarin and Bethany for the letter about your trip!

See you all soon, Don't stop Belivin'
- Elder North

Elder North would love to hear from you so don't hesitate to write!
