Letter home from Elder North - September 1, 2014

Date:  September 1, 2014
Area:  Oxford, Mississippi
Companion:  Elder Despain

Dear Chairmen,

Congratulations on the talk Mikel, I recently had to speak in church as well. My topic was Prophets. I ended up going over time rambling on but everybody seemed to have liked it.

I did try grits back when I was in West Memphis, I did not find them very pleasant though. As for Handy Andy's, we almost went there today but being Labor day, it was closed.

Our most recent district meeting was held here in Oxford.

Last night was one of the best lessons of my mission. We met a man named CJ a few days ago on the bus. Just saw him briefly was all. Saturday we were walking about and saw him on Campus. We approached and spoke with him, explaining what we do and asking if we'd be able to visit him. We left him with a
pamphlet and set a time to see him at his apartment. At church we requested a member join us for the appointment and despite living 25 miles away, brother Webb volunteered. We went there with him and met with CJ and everything was great. We spoke about the Restoration and gave our invitations to pray, read, pray and come to church. Having brother Webb there was also excellent. He accepted and we should be having him at the ward BBQ Wednesday.

"Life is not enough just believing or just doing, a combination of this is necessary for becoming."
Everyone remember to do your best to become a disciple of Christ. This is his church, his restored gospel and his invitation.

-Elder North

Elder North is not much of a writer but he still enjoys hearing from everyone so if you find some time drop him a line.
