¿Hola que tal?                                                                                                                 June 24, 2013
I can't believe we are headed for July already. Time just seems to be flying by right now. Well sounds like normal circumstances for you guys, some being in St. George and all. Dad I laughed when you called Jazzi and Zoe little hairy mutt balls or whatever haha. Sounds like fun being able to golf all the time without the girls there huh? So mom you're all headed to Eagar? I can barely remember what Eagar is like. I swear it's been quite a long time since I've been there huh? I just asked Elder Burden if he's been to Eagar before and he told me that he has maybe once or twice. He also said he knows of some Ellsworth's that live in Snowflake, so maybe they are relatives somehow. Hey I agree with Dad. You need to take pictures and send them to me too! Maybe we'll make a rule and if you don't send any pictures then I won't either. haha. So the family is going to Eden instead of Bear Lake this year?? That's cool. Tyler and I won't be there! It's going to be different huh? Well I'm glad everything is going well.

This week I gave a baptimal interview...my first one! It was a 25 year old college student investigator of the assistants in my district. I was a little nervous, but it actually went really well. As for our investigators, we have been "hitting the wall" with a lot of them. We've had baptismal dates and everything, but they keep falling. It's tough sometimes, but we're going to keep the faith. We hope to find some more new investigators this week. We have a good referral that we hope to contact this week. We watched to huge missionary broadcast yesterday at the stake center. Us English speakers went into the high council room and watched it via internet with President Reeves and the other English speakers. It was a great broadcast. It had a lot to do with working with members in the work. We also learned that all missionaries are eventually going to be using the internet like facebook and stuff to do various parts of the work. Amado came to church for the 2nd time in a row this Sunday! He really wants to change his life. Pray for him. He struggles with a Alcohol problem. He has a lot of hope that through the Atonement he can change and be baptized. Oh and guess what? My very first District Meeting President Reeves and the assistants came! Little pressure, but it went fine. 

I love you guys. Do Jami and Kaylee have their own personal emails?? I'd like to be able to talk with them more. Even if each week it's just a little paragraph or whatever. How you little ladies doing? Hope everything is great. Tonight we are doing a family night with the bishop's family and the Beltran Family. I'm excited for that. Family is everything. Thank you for everything. Until next week from your brother and son,

Elder Ryan Kitchen

  1. Missionary Photos Wanted for New LDS BOOK!
    Author Mike Winder is working with Deseret Book-owned Covenant Communications on a missionary photo book that will contain inspiring quotes, scriptures, and thoughts to help inspire young people to serve a mission.
    He is looking for amazing missionary photos from around the world. Do you have any favorite pics that evoke emotion (inspiring, humorous, etc.)? Do you have any photos with your companion in front of temples or iconic images (Big Ben, Golden Gate Bridge, Asian pagodas, etc.)? Do you have any showing missionaries in action (service projects, teaching, tracting, baptizing, etc.)? How about funny missionary pics, ones with the Book of Mormon, with food, with kids, or with animals?
    If so, please email a few of your favorite ones to mike@mikewinder.com by July 31. Images must be at least 1MB in size to be published (low resolution images would be too blurry in print).
