OCT 28 Hahahahahahahahahaha.Do all dinosoaurs have tails?What a thoughtful question. I have NEVER been irked that way. As far as I and the Elders around me know, yes. Except for the bugs, if they count as dinosaurs.My stomach is fine now.I do cook for myself as often as possible. I like cultural food, my stomach doesn't sometimes. It is next to impossible to keep from eating at homes sometimes, but I consider myself one of the best at keeping it from happening.I wish I could go to a museum. The trip sounded fun.Babies, babies. SHANE had a baby too! Cannon, what a weird/cool name.I love my sisters. I'll impart some wisdom to them if they ask, but I need the issues to address.THANKS for my packages. I've got Fritos, and chocolate. Awesome, I appreciate it a lot.
I was assigned to choose/direct the musical number after the zone leaders heard me playing Moonlight and decided to spruce up zone conference. I'm getting a lot of special responsibilities dumped on me, which I enjoy. It helps me feel appreciated for my talents. I sent you a package. The flags are both political flags that I snagged during the election. The yellow one is the "Telugu Desam Party." Haha, they promised TVs to everyone who voted for them if they won. They were basically a local party that would have turned their votes over to the BJP (Satan's party) if they got any.The white one is the "People's Party." It is lead by Chirunjivi, a popular actor in the Telugu speaking film industry. They had a good following, but were beat out by the Congress party. The train is supposed to represent the middle/lower class being the focus of their politics.
Thanks for sending the packages!Don't worry about them coming late or anything, that's what I told you to do anyways. I will appreciate them all the same!Please make sure that replacement razor comes, I feel like my electric razor is just a paperweight until it arrives.Update:1. I'm staying in Hyderabad, same area.2. Elder Sekar is leaving our companionship but staying in the district (and the branch.)3. My new companion will be Elder Tucker 5. I'm also in charge of the housing, furnishing, and repairs in the Hyderabad Zone. 6. I've been moving Large amounts of money as my "financial custodian" job has required. I have the equivalent of $1,000 in my possession. I'm being safe about it.7. I have NOT purchased a white tuxedo.8. I HAVE purchased and currently have a red superhero costume that I had custom-tailored. I will send a picture next week.9. I will be measured so that I can have 7 or so new white shirts produced. Each shirt will be about 5 dollars and custom fit. I love the textile market in India.10. I'm still working hard and loving it here!I love you a lot!Kyle
OCT 7th: It's Thursday now, and I have to be quick.> > We're working hard! Our investigators are getting SO close to baptism!
OCT 7th: I AM working hard, though I took a short break yesterday. In fact, our whole zone took a break yesterday and went to RAMOJI FILM STUDIO, the biggest film studio premises in the world (they claim)!It was a lot of fun. I did many many things, like: watch a ridiculous "wild west" stunt show, get lost in a hedge maze, do backflips on a bungie slingshot (like you see at the fair), and ride on a mechanical bull. I'm not sure why I was allowed to do all of those things, but I was, and I enjoyed them. I got some awesome pictures, and an ADORABLE pic of my companion hugging a pole painted like a child's toy. I will have to send it next week.I apologize for not sending any attachments this week, I simply don't have enough time. I'm emailing on Thursday, we got permission because we couldn't get it done yesterday. However, I don't want to waste preaching time. We also had zone conference two days back. I always love zone conference. I learned much about my purpose as a missionary and remembered a whole lot of things that will make me less of a robot and more of a loving, caring, dedicated missionary. I appreciate being able to work with Elder Sekar, though transfers are coming in a week and we'll have to see if I stay in Hyderabad.I'm loving the work and serving the Lord. I've recognized that hard work brings great accomplishment and with it, happiness. The best part is that my work will be eternally long lasting. My art will crumble and music forgotten, but the impact I have on these beautiful (and goofy) Indian people will last with them into the eternities. I CANNOT wait to see these people in the Celestial Kingdom. That will be crazy. I love you and appreciate your work. LOVE YOU!!!!Kyle
