Letter #3 July 28, 2014 Sterling Colorado

Hey Everyone,
Well I am in Colorado now and I am in a small town next to the border of Nebraska it is called Sterling Colorado and it is about as big as Joe City! (Where Jeff’s brother-in-law is from,although Sterling has about 18,000 people and Joe City is about 1500).  And not many people care to talk to us at all most of them go to the Lutheran church.

But the day I got here we got to stay at President Browns house and listen to 3 converts tell there story's and how they came into the church. My favorite was a guy who went by the name “Hot Rod” instead of his real name which no one knows, not even the missionary's who taught him, (I’m sure that whoever baptized him knew his name so they could baptize him). Also Vaughn you would love this guy, the two of you would have a lot of fun together!

The next day I got my new companion, his name is Elder Torres and he has been out for 8 months and he is from Texas. We gathered our things then we drove to Sterling which is about an hour and a half drive.  I am the driver cause about a month ago Elder Torres flip his jeep he was in so he cant drive any more for right now! Well when we got to our apartment we unpacked and got settled in but it is not a fun place to be in right now because people here don't believe in what we call air-conditioning so it is like 100 degrees in the house!!! But luckily that night we had an investigator call us and wanted us to come over and teach them, so we were able to get out of the heat of our apartment.  They also wanted us to give them a blessing that night and they ask me to say the blessing so that was a very cool experience and the spirit was so strong and powerful when I was giving it!

Well everything is going good right now but we got swept into this place, mom just ask Steven what that means. And it is even worse when the 2 missionaries before us did nothing other then basically just sit around and chill all day and go see people that they liked and they left no records for us to look at, so we are starting from scratch! So it is very hard and not much happening for us! But it is ok we met with the bishop on Sunday to get some ideas to who we should see and who they were teaching before us so we have some names now! So this week should be better.

Love Elder Urry

PS mom just to let you know just send everything to the mission home because that will for sure get to me and that is the best way even if it takes longer! And do that with the dear Elder stuff to or just have it sent to my email!
