Josh with his Companion and the Assistants Elder Rawlings & Elder Heal
I know it has been almost two months since I have posted anything on here, but Josh doesn't say much when he writes, just asks questions about his friends and our family. I have been bugging him lately about exciting stories that he has or anything really that I can put on here. Here is what I have gotten from him in the last month & a half. He said that in December everything was in sheets of ice and that his companion fell like three times on his face and pulled Josh down with him one of the times. He is from New Mexico so he is not used to the cold temperatures or icy sidewalks.
Josh was able to give an investigator a blessing of comfort and direction while he is going through a hard divorce and said how grateful he is for the priesthood and the opporunity he has to give blessings.
He has been treaching a few people and some of them have been progressing well.
On New Years Josh and his Comp got a call from his President wishing them a Happy New Year. He thought that that was cool that he would think of them and give them a call.
He loves going to Zone Conferences and feeling the spirit and seeing all of his friends that he has made that are in different areas. He looks forward to them.
He was able to go on exchanges with the assistants last week and was so excited that the Utes won the Sugar Bowl and went undefeated this year. He told my parents that they better have recorded it & saved it on the DVR so that he can watch it when he gets home.
It finally snowed in Ohio! Josh was pretty happy about that. There has been a lot of ice, but no snow until last week.
He & his companion got a media referral and went to the house & met brother Sedlak. He is a less active from Michigan and his wife is very interested in the gospel . They went to church on Sunday and she has been reading the Book of Mormon. Josh & his companion were able to eat dinner with them and had another appointment to go back and meet with her again. He seems really excited about this couple.
He loves his President and his wife. He says that they are great people and he loves being with them.
That's about it for now, he did call home for Christmas and it was great to be able to talk to him. He said that he had forty minutes and when my dad turned off the phone it had been forty minutes and five seconds. He follows the rules exactly and is such a good missionary. He sounds great and is very happy. I think his has been the greatest experience of his life. We are so proud of him and miss him very much but know that he is where he should be!
