Dear Family and Friends,
I am Still in Kansas City with Elder Weatherford. He is still waiting for his visa. Friday he had to submit new visa paper work because the first one expired.
Monday we went shopping at Target and Aldis then we went to Genx. a store selling lots of clothes for black people. Then we went to Burlington Coat Factory. There I found a new backpack with more pockets and with out the side straps. I also found some ties that were under $3 and some under $7. There are lots of new people in the Zone.
Tuesday we help move Sister Hernandez out of Sister Pitt and Gail's house. We moved her stuff into a storage place. Then we took the other Elders to two different bike shops to get parts to fix Elder Cortez's bike. He is very hard on bikes. We had dinner with Sister Doweling and the younger Ramirez. She works in the temple every week. So Sister Ramirez is the Daughter of Sister Doweling and Brother Ramirez is the son of Bishop Ramirez, the old bishop. Tuesday night we saw David R. He is doing Great we have almost finished teaching him every thing he needs to be baptized.
Wednesday we visited lots of less actives. We had dinner with Sister Gay. She had 4 blind friends over also plus Us 4 Elders plus David R. It was almost a party. She feed us Green Chile brisket. After dinner we went to Nicks house and talked with him and his wife wants to be baptized. Nick is a less Active member from Lee's Summit. He is a construction worker and restoration expert.
Thursday we saw David and taught him the Law of Chastity and Tithing. He is still doing great not smoking. We had dinner with the Strubs. Then we saw some more less actives members.
Friday There was a Leadership training for the whole zone. Elder Weatherford had to go so we went to the Stake center to do Exchanges. They put me with LS2 Elder Black And Elder Buckaluwe. It was fun being in a new area for the day. We had dinner with the McCrays. They took us to a Chinese buffet. After dinner we went to see Bro Pervice with Brother Ellis. He is doing fine he has 3 drains in him and need to stay in the hospital until he doesn't have a fever.
Saturday we help move an investigator family out of our ward into Kc3 c. We cut the lawn of a Lady in the ward. We saw David again. We taught him about daily scripture study. We had dinner with Waaser. We had pasta and Sub sandwiches. We also started our mission fast.
Sunday was good; we had 2 investigators at church. We had dinner with the Orts. We had spaghetti and home made grape juice that tasted like Grandma grape juice. We also had Ice cream and no bake cookies.
Monday was p-day. We had 10 elders in our apartment at one time. We all went to target and trader Joe's and Aldis which was closed. Then we went to Wei's supper buffet to eat. We went to Genx again and Burlington Coat factory. Then to the stake center to play games. We had Dinner with Bother Graham and his family.
Today before Emailing we got a call from the Zone leaders to go help this Lady move. We took 6 trips of things that we packed into our car and hers and unpacked. We were there for 5 hours. I think that we could of done better things with the time that we spent helping her move out of our area.
I am thankful for being able to stay in this ward for another transfer. The people are awesome and the area is great. We are seeing lots of progress in this area. Thanks for the letters and emails and the support. I miss you all and love you lots.
Love Elder Benjamin Allen
