Hello there everyone,
Man i gotta admit i am quite proud of mom getting first place in the race! i really wish i could've been there!
This last week has been a fun week, however we still havn't been able to meet with many of our investigators. We met with the sister that lives in our complex, we read a chapter in the book of mormon with her, it was really fun taking the chapter verse by verse and explaining it as we went. It even helped me understand the chapter better. So i am gonna start using that in my own personal study.
Couple days ago saturday, we were able to help set up tables and chairs for our wards easter egg hunt. Does our ward do one of those back at home?because this thing was legit!! i would be very upset if a utah ward was slacking off, and a california ward was keeping the spirit of easter!
Today for p-day we went on a KILLER bike ride! It was called "Blue mountain" it was uphill the whole way up, it was only a 2 and 1/2 miles, but it was a very steep climb! i passed out once, and almost passed out 2 more times, but i did manage to get to the top, where we were there for about 15 minutes, just enough tuime to get a picture, and attacked by a swarm of bee's, so we promptly left the mountain. Of course going back down was a hoot, as dad would say, or a riot!
I deffinatly see the blessings when i am a more obedient missionary. I dont think i am a 100% obedient, but i am not the worst in the mission. There are some weeks where i feel like i am just stuck in a rut, and i need alot of prayer and faith to get out of it. We had a zone fast yesterday on easter sunday, and i am hoping it will help me boost up and get out and work hard as i can.
Being back in a car area we are able to do alot of less active work. We have about 3 or 4 families that will soon become "Regulars".
Thats way tight that you guys have the chicken coop going. What are the type of chicks you bought? you should've waited till i could give you some advice from farmer bevan. He said there is like a red hairing, or something that produces the most eggs, and they are also good to kill and eat. So thats why i asked.
Missionaries in my zone continue to brag about dad doing alot of marathons and the ironman. i told like 3 people and it spread like a wild fire!
Thanks for everyones love and support! I hope mom had a happy birthday!! And happy birthday to you maren! and dad next week.
Love, Elder Kyle Ettinger
