February 3, 2014 - Letter Home from Elder Bryen North

Date:  February 3, 2014
Area:  West Memphis, Arkansas
Companion:  Elder Freddette

To my Dutiful Readers,

This week our Mission was visited by the Apostle L. Tom Perry!  The man is a happy giant standing six foot three and has a constant smile on his face.  He gave a talk on hastening the work and he and other authorities answered questions.  At ninety years old he mentioned how he was reading three sections of the Doctrine and Covenants while riding his bicycle.  He said he loves to throw his name around in sneaky ways.  He meets people and often asks if they know any Mormons.  When people answer yes he will give them a card with his name on it and tell them to tell the person they know that he instructed them to tell them more about the church.

This week was rather low-key otherwise but still fun.  We had some Super Bowl food with the other missionaries.  I made meatballs.

Elder Fredette and I are teaching an older woman named L****.  She's our prime investigator now, but our last visit she was sick and we gave her a blessing.

We also got a cake for B**** (another investigator) since it was her birthday.

It looks like my time in West Memphis may be coming to a close since I've been here so long.  We shall see soon enough.

- Elder North

I like the name of their new investigator I think she will be fabulous! :)  Transfers are next week so I think usually they find out who is leaving during the weekend.  

So if you write him this week it might be a good idea to send it to the mission home instead of to his apartment.  That address is...
