October 7, 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

I had a great week, last week. Last week we had transfers and I am staying in KC1st with Elder Weatherford. Elder Weatherford hasn't got his visa yet. Elder Cortez left to go to the Independence Stake. Elder Bitton got a new companion named Elder N. Smith.  He came out with Elder Cortez. He is from Utah.

The weather here has been getting cold, it has been like 70's in the day and 40's at nighttime. We had the car this week. We had the opportunity to visit lots people this week with the use of the car. We saw...

Sister Biggs, she is a recent convert that moved into the ward just before I got here. She broke her arm this week.  We saw her on Thursday and while we were there she had an outlet and light not working. I was able to fix them for her.   It was real easy to fix.

We saw Brother Pervice, he is doing better, and he is now in a rehab place. He is getting his strength back and is looking tons better. They will not allow him to come to church, which is sad.

David R. is doing great. He is now ready to pay tithing and is doing great not smoking and drinking.  He wants to be baptized this month. He has a baptismal date for the 26th. He was able to watch 3 of the sessions.  He loved being able to see the prophet and the apostles  

Labrenda is moving this week. She is moving to Colorado.  We couldn't meet with her much since she is busy trying to finish everything to be able to move.

We meet with Kay at Sister Gay's house. We taught her about the plan of salvation. She wants to be baptized too and has a baptismal date for November 9th. 

On Tuesday we had some strong winds and a big branch fell onto Sister Gay's house and neighbor's house. We went over to help her and it took us 4 elders and her using the chain saw  hours to get it moved.

On Sunday night we had the opportunity to Give Kara a blessing. She has limes disease and is on a very hard diet to try to get ride of it.

We were able to watch all 5 sessions at our ward building.  We had 3 of our investigators come to the church to watch it with us. On Sunday we had a potluck in between the sections. I loved all of the talks. There were lots of talks that talked about following the Lord’s laws and standards.

This week was great and learned a lot. I love this area and glade that I can stay here for another transfer. I love the people here and the ward is great. I miss all of you but I am having a great time here, I love you all.

Elder Benjamin Allen
