Elliot's March 19 email and pictures

Here's the latest email from Elliot, with two pictures after the jump.


The weather's pretty crazy here right now. It's raining hard and there's a lot of thunder and lightning. It's pretty intense. This is the season for it. Last year was wild and I don't suppose it'll be too different here. But no worries!

Did you see what Carlton's doing for an apartment this year? If I can't stick with him then Liberty Square sounds good. Sorry I haven't been the most helpful with the apartment situation. I was waiting to see what a few missionaries out here are doing but Elder Phillips it going to head to the U instead of the Y. But that's all good.

This past week was awesome. We had a lot of appointments and a lot of our investigators came to church. We have 2 new investigators that are particularly awesome. One is "Jane." Her mom was baptized just a few weeks ago and she went. During the baptismal service she felt like she wanted to be baptized, but in the past she had never liked going to any church. She came though that weekend and she felt like "this is the one." She's set to get baptized the 7th of April. The other is "Joe." He is super legit. He had a health scare a while back and since has been searching to come closer to God. The Mormon church just kept coming back to his head. So he looked up the website this past week and looked at just about everything on it. After that he chatted with some missionaries online and ordered a Book of Mormon. He's solid and is planning on coming to church this Sunday. Hopefully we can set a date for baptism with him this week. So between that and 4 other people who are looking into the church that came this past Sunday, life's good. I've never had an area this on fire before.

So I went down to Wichita Falls on exchanges this past weekend and got to talk to Adrienne. She's doing super well. She's going to get married to a guy from Sandy, UT in June and they plan on getting sealed in the Salt Lake Temple sometime in November. I'm pretty excited because I'll be back to go to that. She'll be moving up to Utah midway through this year too. She's has a calling teaching the young women in the Wichita Falls ward. Its great to see how involved she is and how strong she is in the gospel.

I can't believe that my homecoming is already scheduled! [August 19, 1:00 p.m., 24915 Peachland Avenue, Newhall, California.] This is going way too fast. That's so cool that I'll be talking the same day as Carlton. Dad gum.

I love y'all! Have a great week!

Con amor,

Elder Elliot

PS- Look at the roads we have to drive down in Oklahoma. Good thing we have a truck!
