So this past week has been pretty good. We were able to teach a few less active lessons, and a lesson with our investigator. Who we got more information about. He has this choir ... That he goes to at the first sunday of each month. So we're gonna try and commit him to come to the second and third sundays of the month in a row. We'll see how that goes this week.
We Were also able to teach another kid in our ward, who is turning 9 in the beginning of december, so he has a baptismal date for dec 3 a day before his birthday. So its not gonna be a convert baptism. But the whole family has been one of the families that i KNOW with out a doubt i was sent here to help. Its been a bumpy road. But they're now considered an active family again! i'm way stoked about it. Also they're gonna be moving to hurricane UT in Feb 2013. So we'll be close in touch after my mission.
For halloween This year, i went to walmart and used some of my walmart gift card to buy Phase Ten. To play at another mission appartment. There was like 6 elders all playing games. We had a really good time. We had to be "IN" at 6:00. But it didn't matter what appartment. Which was a really nice thing for us.
From japan, maybe if your could just send some cool pictures. i'm trying my best not to accumulate to many things... accept for shoes as you saw last week. I've only bought one pair of shoes since i left. The others were given to me, or i already had them when i came out.
Thats about everything thats going on for me this week. Thanks for the pictures of our mission plaques. They look really good!
hope all is well in your travels! i pray for you lots!!!
Love, Elder Kyle Ettinger
A note to the deacons..
A note to the deacons..
If you're not sure if you're going a serve a mission, think about the many blessings that heavenly father has given us. He Died for us, he suffered for us. And giving him two years to bring our fellow brothers and sisters back to him. Is only a little task for us to do. Serving a mission has blessed my life so much! i've learned many different ways to help others come closer to christ. The blessings and miracles are there every day! If you ask what you should do now to prepare?... Begin to read the Preach My Gospel Manual that you use as a missionary. Its something i wish i did alot more before my mission. Read it from cover to cover, the information we recieve from it, is inspired and helpful! GO GET EM!
