So this week we had an activity with the ward members that's the start of a 6 week competition. There are tasks every week and if you win you get points. People were crazy competitive and got super into it. I organized it and was running it so I've been crazy busy! But we told people for every non member they bring to church they get points, so people invited tons of friends to church. I'm excited that everyone is so excited about missionary work! The teaching is going great and we have some baptisms coming up!
I have to go buy some bus tickets today because tonight we are traveling to another town to do a division with the other Elders in my district. It should be pretty fun! Well that's about it for this week. Have a great week and I love you all!
(the young women in our ward here in Texas wrote letters to Kyle & here's his response)
Dear Young Women of the Abilene 3rd ward,
Due to the many letters that I received from all of you I am not able to respond individually so I am responding in a group letter. I will assure you though that I read each and every letter that was sent to me and I tried to imagine your voices as I read your letters. I am very grateful that you all took the time to write to me and I felt really inspired to work harder as a missionary! Letters are quite a blessing as it's incredible how easily we feel alone or forgotten sometimes. Especially as we are so far from our comfortable surroundings we feel very open and exposed. However just that quick 5 minutes to write a letter really makes a big difference. I would like to challenge each and every one of you to take just a minute and think of a friend of yours or someone you know that may be feeling a little forgotten or may not know that we have a very loving Heavenly Father that never forgets us. And I want you to sent them a quick letter, text or email letting them know you are thinking of them. There are people all around us that feel this way and a quick letter or text message when someone didn't make it to church or is down will make a big difference to them. I carry a little pocket notebook with me and when we go to someone's house and they are not home I always leave them a note and they love it. They always tell me how happy they were to get my note and that we had come to see them. I am excited to meet all of you. My mom always talks about how she loves the new ward there in Texas and serving all of you. Here in just a little bit I'll be there to meet you all. In the mean time keep up the missionary work and KEEP READING THE BOOK OF MORMON!!!
