Thanks for the pictures of Bryson. He looks really happy. A few of our new members have children about 7-9 months old. They are fun to play with when we visit them.

Zone Conference

Yesterday was Zone Conference. We learned about how to help our new members. We are now doing more to help new members in their change to becoming a member.


Afterward we went and ate at our new member’s house. They cooked up some nice byyz. Byyz are dumpling like food with sheep meat inside of it. These byyz were somewhat more difficult to eat though. I completed the task and finished them all. There was a lot of them. My companion and I went home and then to sleep and I woke up at about 3 o’ clock with my stomach hurting. I threw up all the food I ate that day. Feeling better I went back to sleep only to again throw up 3 hours later. Afterward I felt much better. I was discussing with my companion how my stomach was hurting etc. He surprised me when he said the meat in the byyz wasn’t sheep meat, but that it was goat stomach. I thought they tasted a little different… Ha ha. Anyway I am doing good now and feeling better.

General Conference

With General Conference this weekend, we don’t have much time to do missionary work this week. I am excited to watch conference though. Our investigators are progressing along quite nicely.

To Mom

I am guessing the mail system is broken or just really slow. I got a letter from Aunt Susan about 2 weeks ago. It made me happy to read it. Bryon is having some crazy experiences. Other than that I haven’t received any letters. Anyway have fun in Texas!

Thanks for all the support and emails.

Love from Elder Willoughby
