HERE IS WHAT THE CHURCH IS SUPPOSE TO LOOK LIKE IN CHENNAI WHEN IT IS COMPLETED.
JAN 6, 2010 HI,
I remember talking to him about a mission some months ago. Well, thanks for telling me.
Definitely focus on keeping your self active and in shape. I'm doing more than a few push ups every morning. I'm not where I want to be yet, mostly because my companions won't run with me, but I'm closer than before.
Don't let mom get too carried away with her work. It's important, but all things in moderation. It's amazing, but the time is flying by. John is coming home, then Spencer, Mark and Matt... myself sometime in the future. Haha, it's fun.
Alright!Thanks for sending that info Mom. I care more and more. Personally, you were right about reporting numbers. It's funny, the housing and family situation in Panama and Costa Rica is the same as India. We too have investigators living in 1 or 2 room shacks with extended families.
People here also walk right through the home like they own it. Very communal living. Then again, there are over a billion people here. If you need personal space.... good luck.
On that note, I have not completely gotten over my "stop touching me" feelings, but that's by India's standards. I'll probably be considered a touchy feely in America now because of how close I can sit next to a man... and because men hold each others hands to cross the street here in India.
Here's an update on some Investigators:1. Anand and Kavitha. They have a daughter in 1st grade and a young son. Anand drives an auto (like a ghetto taxi.) He is very humble and loves to read the Book of Mormon. He is very sincere. His wife speaks very little English, but people are helping her out a lot at church. I'm so excited for them. They are preparing to be baptized on the 7th of February.
2. Thangu, Ravichendran, Ramya, and Raj Mohan. Great family. They speak *very* little English, but have been reading the Tamil Book of Mormon and attending church AND activities. They intend to be baptized in about a month but are working out some complications. They are very happy and live together with extended family. The other elders really like to talk to them because they smile a lot.
3. Umm, and lots more.
I love you so very much!Kyle
