We had the opportunity to have your son in home for dinner. He is doing
well and happy in our ward. He is in the Bayview ward in North East
Maryland. He is a wonderful young man and know he will do so well in this
area. Thank you so much for sending your son on a mission.
[Thank goodness he's eating some ice-cream! Look how slim he's gotten!
SOMEONE GET THAT ELDER A BURGER!!]

[Josh's quick note to Amber: (Side-note for those that may not know: A missionary's work is a lot more efficient when local members give them referrals for people that want to learn more about the Gospel, rather than relying on street contacts or knocking on doors. Despite what the stereotype is, missionaries would much rather spend their time following up on member referrals than on door-knocking! :) Utah missionaries stay very busy because there are so many members who are constantly giving referrals to the missionaries here.)]
Hey Amber! So my new address is 15 Bertram Ct, North East, Maryland 21901
I will talk more in my letter to dad but I feel like a missionary in
Utah! We barely do any finding ourselves! It's great and the members
feed us almost once a day! I love you! Tell Steve and the girls I say
[Josh's email for the week:]
Yeah Brother Fletcher took a couple pictures and asked for your email. The members here love the missionaries and we get fed about once a day so my weight loss may cease but I've been working out a lot more in the morning so hopefully that'll help. I am in the Bayview Ward here in Maryland and there's an average of 130 people in attendance. My new address is 15 Bertram Ct, North East, MD 21901 (the 1 I sent Amber is the correct one so check with her to make sure this is right as well) I am very excited to be here. How are Elders Coggins & Mason doing? I am excited for you and Andrea that's cool that Bishop can do that.
Sowe went to the Hulls house for dinner 1 last time and had a lesson with Mario about the 10 commandments and keeping the Sabbath day holy. It was an awesome lesson to end with and when we left the Hulls came out on the porch and sang, "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again."
I am really excited about being here:) how are Amanda and Mitch doing? Tell them I miss them and I love them.
Have a good week!
