Dear Family and Friends,
I am doing great here. I am in the Kansas City. We only cover one ward, which is so large that we have two sets of missionaries in the ward. My companion is Elder Weatherford. He has been out for 11 months and is still waiting on a visa to travel to India. He was told that he could leave in one month to India. We are living in an apartment in the center of our ward. We have a car half time and the other Elders in the ward have it the other times. The other Elders are Elder Cortes and Elder Bittion and both of them can’t drive so we have the car full time.
Last week Wednesday I flew into Kansas City airport. It was Fun flying again. We flew in a small airplane there was about 60 people on the plane. President Keyes and his wife picked us up in Two 15 passenger vans with one pulling a large trailer and their SUV. The trailer had over 2300 pounds in it. We went to the temple first and took pictures in front of the Temple. After the Temple we went to the Liberty Jail and then to the Visitor Center in Independence. All 23 Elders and Sister went to Presidents Keyes house for the night where the APs talk to us and we had interviews with President. Sister Keyes fed us real well. Thursday we all got our new companions and went off to our new areas.
Church yesterday was good, we only attend one ward the Kansas 1st ward. We had one investigator David. He just started to quit smoking this last Tuesday. He is doing great with stopping. I got to help him set up his tablet so he could read the Scriptures on it while it read it to him. We are teaching Lots of other people and 2, 8 year old boys that need to hear the lessons before they can get baptized. We have P-day on Monday I am doing great here. The weather here is nice. Learning lots and trying to memorize the lessons. I got the first lesson done with. The ward is so nice here. The apartment is nice and new. I am loving the car but still need to get a bike. I am loving it here. I miss all of you
