May 21, 2011

well i am in Holt, Michigan now with elder Cox if you didnt know. he is from Provo, Utah. He has been out for a little over 9 mouths now on his mission. We are in a ward and he told me when he got transfered here it was just like back home in utah. their is a lot of young people and young familys in the ward and their is a lot of young women and young men also which is good. and he told it will be like being back home in a family ward. transfers went good i took a few pics with a few missionaires. ya so far this week we have had only 17 lessons but we count the members lessons as well in the zone. but we have not only 5 member lessons this week and the 2 less active lessons and the rest is with investigators, which is good. we have a baptism coming up on the 4 of next mouth with a investigator and we are hoping we can have a few more as well before the transfer is over with. cause this area and the lansing area is the hottest(the best areas with baptisms) areas right now. and so we are hoping that we can have 6 more this transfer that can be baptised. we are getting feed everyday by the members which is good. and i get full everytime. we had ribs yesturday(friday) from a family in the ward, and they gave us the rest of the ribs that was left over. and when i got their to the Holt apartment there was not that much food left so today we are going to bo going shopping for a lot of stuff(food) for the apartment. and next weekend we are going to be up in Petotosky it is up north for the half mission p-day but it is friday and saturday. on friday we have training meetings that day and then on saturday we have games and some more stuff that we are going to be doing all day. we have to leave lansing at 5 am next friday to get up their at 9am. so that is going to be a long day as well but it should be fun. and it is a goodbye thing for president and sister Jones.
so far in Holt it has been really busy and we leave are apartment a little 10am and we dont get back tell 9:30 that evening some times unless we go back for lunch but so far that has only been twice this past week. we already have 17 apointments set up for next week and we still have a few open spots but thats it. cause we can't do anything next friday and saturday cause we will be gone all day long. and so are next p-day well polly be the next monday the 30th. but we dont know for sure we will find out on wedensday when we have to go to distrect meeting in jackson. that is where are distrect leader is at this transfer. so we get to go their for 3 distrect meeting this transfer out of 5 weeks, the next transfer will be 7 weeks long. Holt is doing pretty good as of right now and we are hoping we can get it was up as well. we have 3 apointments tonight so we will finish f the week with 20 lessons and thats the best that it has been for a long time so that will be good. but other then that work here in Holt is doing really good.
sounds like everything back home is doing good. thats sounds like a long drive that you have to do. drive all the way to colorado and i thought driving from Alpena to Mt. Pleasent was a long drive i was wrong. well the weather down here in Holt is a lot different from the weather up their in Alpena. it is way warm down here it has been around in the 70's and it doesnt help that it is humet(mis spelled). ya i can tell that chris was changing everyday i think i will also. and we found out that in August that transfer their will be 8 elders, 2 sisters and a senior couple that will be coming out. but their will be a few missionaries going home as well. this last transfer there was only 4 elders that came out. so it has been a good transfer so far and i hope that it will be a good one as well.
that is stupid that they closed the spud drive-in the year. everyone goes to that everynight. it is really the only thing that people do up their in the teton vally i know that for sure. cause their was nothing to do whenever i was up their working. sounds like madona is going to be working with him and everything which is way good. so who is this Shelia person that you are talking about chelle. Thats good that Tom is going to be a apart of the interview process. i cant belive that jake is going to be going home that soon wow next mouth wow i cant belive that. where has the time gone. wow cameron is getting ole that means i am getting old as well, lol. ya on tuesday we had 4 apointments fall thought so we went door nokning a lot that day, which was ok even thought we only got a person to say that they would like us to come back. i will be seding me sim card home this week dont worry we have just been crazy busy with the different apointment and every else that has been going on as well. but thats it for now here in Holt letters will be in the mail hopefully this week some time when i have time to write them. love ya all
Elder Webster
