First full week in Idaho

Elder Arnoczky meets President & Sister Yardley who will be serving until June 30th when their mission is complete and they return home. They sent a photo with a letter to Mom & Dad assuring them that they will take good care of Elder Arnoczky.

In a May 26th email, Elder Arnoczky said that he is teaching every day and could be involved with his first baptism next week. The potential new member is a 20-year-old named Becky. He says there are also 3 people in the same family that he is helping teach who are also very close but not quite ready to make the baptism commitment. This past week he and his companion helped an investigator with some heavy-duty yard work for a couple of days. Overall, he is very busy because he & his companion support 5 wards!

Mom sent out a small address book & he said he is planning to write letters to some of you out there. Getting letters or packages are a big highlight of a missionary’s week.
