Kade sent some pictures of his p-day activities and they usually include playing soccer. He was excited this week because they got some members to come and play with them. He asked me to post this picture and said that he had received permission from everyone in it.
He is excited about the missionary work. The way that they keep their records has changed and there is a lot of emphasis being put on reactivating members. Kade has spent quite a bit of time doing that and so he is excited about being able to count those statistics.
He has some great investigators that they are working with and is excited to be teaching some with baptismal dates. It is exciting to see people accept the gospel into their lives and make the changes needed to be baptized.
They had investigators at church last week and he said the meetings were great. The talks were all about families and so it was great to have a family there with them. The missionaries sang the song, Praise To The Man and Kade had the little tape recorder I sent in his pocket. I'm excited to hear that. He said that he and Elder Grecci sang the low part. The other two, Elders Grover and Barros' voices didn't pick up as well because they were further away from him.
He was impressed that their Gospel Principles class had about 20 people come. Between the two companionships they had a lot of people attending church this week and they were excited about that.
I told him that his Dad and I had made fresh salsa and it was the best we'd ever made. He LOVES salsa and misses it a lot. He's put in his request for that to be the first thing that he eats when he gets home. He also said he misses the leaves changing color in the fall, the deer hunt, the smell of a campfire and the smell of a 4-wheeler exhaust. (yuck)
He is excited about Conference coming up and wants to encourage everyone to be sure and watch all of the sessions. He said that there are three "Gringo Elders" this time in his area and so he will get to watch it in English. They are planning a Gringo party which means they are going to have FOOD. =)
