Hey everyone!!!

And Steve if you got married July first I just might have to hurt ya when I get home haha so before June or you wait and extra week haha.  Also Eric you look like you are almost doing the Heisman pose when you are acting as the angel I don't think he did that haha.

 Well after we ended the call we had dinner with the family it was really good!!! Then we played Uno and just so y'all know the past 7 times I have played on my mission I have won!! I am the champ at Uno in the mission right now haha. Also that Uno was Elder Pember’s present from them and I got phase 10 from them so we have games to play on p day.

Letter #76 12-21-2015 Torrington, Wyoming

Hey Everyone!!
Well we did not have our meeting this last week so I did not get the package from all of you. So it was suppose to be Wednesday and we got a pretty good snow storm and it was about 4-6 inches. That is not the worst I have seen being on my mission but here the wind is what is bad. There have been times were semi trucks will get blown over on the roads so that is why it was canceled for Wednesday and then moved to Friday. 
So Friday morning we got up at 5 am and Headed for Laramie. We get there and we have to get onto I-80 from Cheyenne. When we get there we see it is closed so I am like, there is no other way to get there, do the other Elders know about this? A few minutes later we get a call saying hey Elders the meeting is canceled so we drove for about 2 and half hours to Cheyenne and back for no meeting haha fun!! So we just got an email we are going for a 3rd time and it is on Wednesday the 23rd this week so hopefully it will happen cause that is when I would receive the package. 
 Well also this week was crazy cause of that with all of our planing got all messed up but you just got to be flexible and move on sometimes. But good news we did find 3 new investigators it is a small family and they are supper nice and the reason they wanted to meet with us is cause they want to have better family morale's so i am very excited  to meet with them.  
 So Christmas day I will be calling you 1st to set things up with skype and that will be around 3:30 pm and we are going to be calling from a family house and their names are Aaron and Debra Condie nice young family to be with on that day for dinner and to call home.
 Well hope all is well back at home!! See you all Christmas day!!

Much Love

Letter #75 12-14-2015 Torrington Wyoming

Hey Everyone!!!
 Well hope you all are doing well and having a fun Christmas season. This is a great time of year with Christmas and Thanksgiving so close to each other. I feel there is a reason for that and it is sad to say a lot of people look strait to Christmas. But I feel these two go together when we think of the true meaning of Christmas and the Savior being born that day and how grateful we should be for that.  

If we had no Savior no Christ in our lives, this life wold be impossible. Jesus Christ has given us a path to follow and He has laid out a blue print of His church here on earth so we can know what we need to do to return with Him and live with our Heavenly Father again after this life.  There is a talk I really like that I read in study's this week it is called  "What Is the Blueprint of Christ’s Church?" By Elder Tad R. Callister. And it talks about where we can find this blue print and takes us all over the New Testament and things like that and it is so cool.
 Well this week we did have J_ baptism on Saturday, it was a great service and I was excited to see all his family there supporting him in this decision he has made. It was really cool to see him get up and bare his testimony, and his favorite scripture with everyone which he did an amazing job with. So now we will be starting to do the new member lessons with him and we are trying to get someone his age to come with us each time so when we leave he will have people that he is comfortable around.
  Well this week will be fun with the mission Christmas party and all and as we continue to try to see as much people as we can.

Much love

Letter #74 12-7-2015 Torrington Wyoming

Hey Everyone!!
 Well this week was interesting...  

J_ baptism got move to the December 12, this coming Saturday, so that will be great. Mom, Torrington only has about 6 thousand people here but we cover a bunch of small towns around it so people come from all over. Our Church building has only been here 3 or 4 years and when they built it they put in 3 bishop offices so there must be revelation that a lot of work is here and just waiting to be found. A lot of that work is less active members, I mean there are 255-300 less active members here. We have been working with our investigator J_ who is planning to be baptized this coming Saturday.   His dad is also interested and wants to meet with us when thing settle down for him. We then have the M_ family who are slowly moving forward but will take some time. So there is a lot of good things going on, and good work is just slow sometimes which is not bad at all. We are here to invite and teach and help others grow in their faith in Jesus Christ, and most of the time just planting seeds for missionary's down the road.

Well the Ward Christmas party was fun and there was a good turn out there. I am always the life of every party mom! Haha. The Wisemans’ have done this every year for the past 5 years. He dresses up as Santa and bleaches his beard so it looks good. 

Well transfers have come and gone again and me and Elder Pember are staying another transfer so this will be my 3rd transfer with him. Well hope you all have a great week!

Much love
Elder Urry
