Here is a recent e-mail from Elder Wandry:

November 7, 2016

Well, I am finally leaving Forest. But, the good news is, I am not going too far!! Actually, I am staying in the same ward! haha I was shocked. I am going to Brandon. So, every other week I will still see all the members that live up here in Forest. I will also get to see Elder Hubert! haha And go on exchanges with him! It was super crazy and not what I was expecting. We have a huge mission and I go to the area right next to mine… Haha I am super pumped and super excited for it. I already know my companion and all the members. It is hardly even a change! Elder Jensen is my companion and is from Las Vegas. He is super dope and I am so pumped to serve with him.

Other than that, this week was pretty great. It was a great last week here. Yesterday was actually kinda crazy. We asked a member that lives in Lake if we could come over sometime during the week to teach a lesson. Well, they offered to make us dinner. So, we planned on just going over and eating dinner with them last night. When we got there, it was like a party! haha The Powell’s and sister Fritz showed up! I was shocked. They came and brought a ton of food. Not sure why they came, but I wasn’t complaining. It was good to have one last dinner with all the members I have become so close with here in Forest. Then we had a little family home evening and talked about the sacrament. It was great and I always love experiences like that on the mission. Just having super good lessons with members that you love. It is the best.

Also, we had a pretty cool spiritual experience this week. Well, they are always happening, but this one stood out to me. We were outside on our bikes and all our appointments fell through. On this specific part of town there are no investigators or anything. It was about 6:30 and there was nothing to do. It was already super dark and so we didn’t really want to knock doors. Once it gets dark, people yell at us for knocking on doors so it isn’t a good idea. Anyway, we sat there for a minute and let Elder Hubert come up with something. I knew I was probably leaving and wanted to make sure he would know what to do in a situation like that. Eventually we decided to pray. We ended the prayer and then heard a guy outside talking on the phone. We biked up to him and started to talk. Well, we eventually found out that he is ______ son!! _______ is one of our investigators. He talked with us for a while and we were able to get a return appointment for tonight!! We are so pumped. It was a quick answer to our prayer and we felt super blessed.

I know that God loves us. He answers our prayers and gives us what we need. He knows what we need and knows the people we need to find. And if we but ask, he will give them to us. It takes a lot of humbling, but he will make us strong. I am so grateful for my mission. Thanks for all the support and love!!

I love you!

QUESTIONS:

If you’re transferred, and have any time to answer this:  what do you know about your new comp and your new area?

My new comp is Elder Jensen. He is from Las Vegas. Of course I know him because he has been my Zone Leader for the past transfer. We have gone on exchanges haha He is super nice and just a great missionary. I am so pumped.

If you’re transferred, will you get to speak a lot of Spanish in your new area?

I will not have any Spanish people to teach. I am really really sad about that haha

Did you remember daylight savings time Saturday night?!!

We did!! It was sooo nice! But now it gets dark at 5:30 here… WUT?!?!?!

Elder Wandry is serving from the Saddle Ranch Ward.
