It's like it's own little world out here.

hey all,
Not much new happening here. We had transfers today, but both Elder Carwright and I will be staying here in kearns. By the end of this transfer I will have been here for 10 1/2 months!!! It's like it's own little world out here. We picked up a new investigator! His name is William Tyrie. He just got out of prison.He was there for 7 years, and now he's on parole until 2038... He cant get baptized until he's off that, but in the meantime, we want to help him understand the scriptures more and to pray. He really wants to make amends and repair the damage he had done in the past. He has been coming to church for 2 months now, so we just need to keep that up for the next 30 years or so...

I also had some exchanges to go on. I sent Elder Cartwright to another area and I got to work with Elder Huber for a day. We had a lot of success and we are starting to see the area turn around. When Elder Cartwright came back, I think his eyes were opened a bit to missionary work, and he has set some new goals to improve and become more actively involved in our area. Exchanges sometimes work in ways that I never would have expected. We are still working with 4 investigators that need to get married... It's coming slowly, but we expect at least one or two weddings shortly. We've had 2 or 3 days this week where we have been double booked for dinner appointments. I'm pretty used to it by now, but elder cartwright has been suffering. My motto: DONT STOP!

Life is good. the Gospel is true. Repent. Dont justify sins. 2 Nephi 28:7-9

Love ya,

Elder Wright
