March 3, 2014

It is always so good to hear from our boy. Thank you to everyone who emails him and prays for him and supports him. We have had an amazing weekend and getting this letter with some pictures from him just makes it so much better! You can write him at devon.ridd@myldsmail.net or here:

Well Mom and family,

I don't even really know what to say. I am so grateful to Heavenly Father that you guys were able to have that amazing experience. Your email has me in tears a little bit. Just thinking about the whole experience with the dancing and the dedication session and to'ona'i just makes me so so happy. I am so grateful to know that Heavenly Father answers prayers. I am so comforted that everything is going well back home. I pray for you guys every day and that  you can have the spirit with you. I know that Heavenly Father has answered my prayers. Thank you for the email. You know I am not going to be able to respond to the whole thing, but I processed it all don't worry.

I am just so happy right now. Thank you for telling me all about your experiences!

It is so nice here and I finally get to wear my other suits that have been in my suitcase at the mission home for so long! I am actually back down to my normal weight... ha ha no more Buhler food or getting fed all the time by the members so I am back to my healthy self. Plus, we have to walk everywhere here so that has probaly helped too. I'm about 155 lbs now, or 70ish kilos. I just barely figured out about a week ago how to tell people how tall I am because I could never find out how many centimeters I

am. ha ha ha Europe is weird.

There is some kind of cross country / desert hair race going on here in Guadalajara so I see dirt bikes all of the time and it's awesome!

Elder Peredo and I are working hard. We have been finding people to teach which is great. Two days last week it rained all day here just like you had in Arizona. We had to contact all day in the rain so of course nobody wanted to talk to us, so that was fun. It was one of those good missionary experiences. One I won't forget! I got to know Elder Peredo a little bit better at least.

We did have a few investigators come with us to church on Sunday so that was great. The branch here is pretty great. The members are super scared to work with us, but we'll fix that soon. Aaand that is about all that is going on here! Just the normal routine.

I'm so excited for Courtney to go to France! I will pray for her! She will do great. Well, I love you all. Thank you to everyone for the emails. I am sending some pictures from my last few days in Las Palmas and a couple from here in Guadalajara.

Have a great week!

Elder Ridd
