13 Days to Africa

Hello again from Provo!!  How are you doing? that's pretty crazy all the stuff you are doing these next couple days, I'm so jealous that you are going to see Landon's home coming talk that is going to be so awesome!  Anyway things here are good.  The language is coming more and more each and every single day.  It’s amazing how I can see the power of the lord and how I'm a tool in his hands for the bringing of souls unto Christ.  So here is an awesome experience for you, Elder Gray and I were teaching our investigator who we had tried to commit to baptism but he said no because he felt that he wasn't ready.  Anyway we went into our lesson teaching the plan of salvation and he ended up asking us some of the right questions.  Towards the end of the lesson I had the impression to ask him to be baptized so I did, and he said YES!!! It was amazing to see the Lord do that for me.  It really is an amazing thing to see souls brought unto Christ.  Anyway I need that money for the package I’ll be sending home and for dry cleaning; they don't accept cash at either place so I need to find some cash lol. I'm at 13 days before I leave for Africa!!! Isn't it amazing how fast this first month has already gone by!  Well other than that things here haven't changed much!  Oh but I forgot to tell you! M. Russell Ballard came to the MTC for one of our devotionals and it was so amazing!  That is my favorite thing here at the MTC is our devotionals.  Anyway thank you for all of your support mom it helps me so much, I love you and miss you so much!  Have an amazing week and I’ll talk to you next week.  Oh and idk how many people have tried to send me dear elders but I haven't gotten that many so it might be better to send a hand letter lol :)

All my love,

Elder Joseph D. Allred !!

Last Week's Letter:


Well things here are a lot better im no longer sick at things are a lot better!  The weather here has been crazy as well! But that's crazy that Arizona is getting weather like that!  Anyway the only thing I would add to your lesson is how the atonement has helped with every aspect of your life! I've seen it in my own life! The French is coming along very and I can see myself improving every day, and most of my district has about the same amount of French as me.  I'm pretty much in the routine.  So on p-days we wake up and do personal study and then we go to the temple afterwards me and elder gray do our laundry and our eat lunch, after that we have free time for a while and then we have dinner and then the Tuesday night devotional.  And that's my p-day well my time is almost up, I do need a few things and that is an SD card reader that I can plug into the computer and a few polyester ties that are cool! lol I'm sending all my silk ones home when I leave the MTC the humidity thing is true, I also need like 10 or 20 dollars in cash cause the ATM here is stupid.  Anyway thank you for all your support it helps so much, remember that you are in my prayers.  I love you and I hope you have a great week.
