Dear Family,                                                                                                 December 10, 2012

P-days just keep coming` don`t they? It`s crazy how fast the week comes and goes. Anyway oh before I forget, the shoes did finally come. Apparently the zone leaders have had them for a little while now, but we haven`t seen them in a while. They are not the same ones as I have now, but they should work out just fine. I`ll save em` until the ones I have now start falling apart I guess. Well it sounds like everyone had a great week! I really look forward to reading your letters and hearing how everybody is doing. Yesterday sounded like a good Sunday. Tell Nick hi for me! I can`t believe he is already home. Also thanks for going to Chandler`s farewell Dad I`m sure that he appreciated you being there. Sounds like he is ready to go. I`m glad that he put his head on straight and he`s heading for the mission field haha. So dad he mentioned me specifically in his farewell talk? He`s going to do great out there in Oregon. Also it was cool to hear about Cameron coming home and ya`ll going hunting again. Man, I leave and ya`ll decide to go hunting everyday huh? I`m joking looks like you guys had fun. Tell Cameron estoy emocionado poder placticar con Èl en Español cuando regresarè tambìen. Dìgale tambíen ser listo por que voy a hablar bien rapido y con un accento mèxicano perfecto. Tal vez no entenderà ;) Anyway yeah Dad that Carne Asada was to die for. I had like 5 or 6 tacos mmm. I`ll have to get some recipies and try and make some good Mexican food when I get home. So 20 degrees huh? Wow I`m not mission that at all haha. Hope you guys are having a good time! I`m wearing a short-sleeved shirt right now. Oh and Mom no I haven`t gotten a letter from Kylie yet...I actually have only received one letter so far. I don`t know if the zone leaders are holding anymore right now, or not. I also wanted to thank you again mom for spending so much time getting my package ready. Dad told me you`ve been spending a lot of time with it. I really appreciate it. Love you Mamma. It`s weird that I`m about to turn 20 years old. It`s doesn`t really feel like it. Also it doesn`t feel like my birthday is coming up cause it`s usually always cold. What`s going on with my sisters? I feel like they died or something, because I haven`t heard from them yet. Jami...? Kaylee...? You guys still alive? haha I hope you guys are doing good and enjoying High School. High School...I can`t believe you are both in High School. That scary. Dad I was cracking up with the end of your email haha. It must have been pretty late huh? Good luck with the old man check up ;)

Anyway I`ll tell you a bit about the work here in Atexcac. We`re already on the 3rd week of the 2nd change which means I only have 4 more weeks of training left. I wonder what will happen at the end of this change. Well Dolores is still progressing really well. We taught him the 3rd lesson, and started with the commandments this week. On Sunday, we taught keeping the sabbath day holy, which went really well. If all goes planned this week I will have my first baptism on Saturday the 15th and the confirmation on Sunday the 16th. Dolores is such a prepared investigator. He`s great. It`s kinda funny because he talks really really fast and has a little bit of a speak problem, so I don`t understand him very well. My comp doesn`t even understand him sometimes. When it comes to lessons though we are able to understand each other well. I`m really excited for this week. We also had a lesson with Adàn our new investigator yesterday. We found him in the area book and saw that he had received the missionaries and part of the 1st lesson a long time ago. We read that he had an issue accepting Joesph Smith. We felt strongly in planning to start teaching him the Gospel with the Plan of Salvation. So we did, and the lesson went really really well. We hope that we can get him to church this Sunday, and to the baptism. We also plan on teaching the Restoration to him in our next lesson. Those are our only 2 progressing investigators right now. We have quite of few of potential investigators that we are working to set up appts. with all the time, so I`m sure we will get the opportunity to teach them soon. We served quite a bit this week too. Everyone is harvesting corn and a little fruit called tejocotes, so we help chuck corn and stuff a lot. Oh yeah also I got sick for the first time this week. It was only for one day about 24 hours so we think it was something I ate. It wasn`t too bad. I got to rest it out and I had some medicine and everything. Anyway that`s what has been going on around here.

Well I better wrap it up. Thanks again for all the support. Tell Grandma and Grandpa Kitchen/Ellsworth thanks for the continued support as well.  I love and pray for all of you. I miss you too, especially over the holidays, but I know I`m wear I need to be and I honestly wouldn`t want to be anywhere else right now. I am so grateful for all the blessing the Lord continues to bless our family with. I hope that you all continue to enjoy the holiday season, and that you keep in mind the true meaning of Christmas. Without our Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement we wouldn`t be anything, but with him we can hope for all things. Have a great week!

Con Amor y Siempre Fruete,
Elder Kitchen
