Elder Kyle Gillingwater Week #27

Hello from the Colorado, Colorado Springs Mission

Graffiti Wall
The weeks in this transfer have been feeling a lot more like days!  It all goes by so fast I feel like I just emailed you all yesterday!  I keep trying to think of things that are exciting that you would all want to hear about.  We taught another new investigator this week!  She pretty much wants to get baptized but we have a lot of work to do before she get's there.  We also have another investigator who wants to start taking the lessons but is really shy and nervous about it so we are taking things slow.  Our recent convert of 1 week received the Aaronic Priesthood yesterday and is really excited to have it.  He keeps talking about how he wants to get the Melchizedek Priesthood and go to the temple!  Sadly, the Denver Temple is closed until the end of the month for maintenance and he gets deployed to Kuwait the week before.  He's a really solid guy though so we know he will be fine!

A lot of the Freshmen Cadets are preparing to turn in their Mission Papers which is really exciting!  They have a small window of time between semesters to have their call date in order to go so there might be a wave of them leaving around the same time.  It will be cool to see where they all go!

This week we walked into our Sunday School class only to realize that the teacher was not going to show up to church that day, since he was out of town, and we had to do an impromptu lesson on the spot which was really nerve racking!  We did a great job though so that always makes things better.

Hopefully this week I will have some crazy story to tell you guys!  Missionary work is really fun and I never get tired of sharing the Gospel with others.  It's such a blessing to be here and I'm so grateful for the opportunity.  I love serving, and can't imagine being anywhere else right now.  I love you all so much and will talk to you soon!

Things that Made Me Smile:

1. Sister Faleao's comment, "I have a Polynesian stomach, I never get sick from food".

2. We had dinner with a really cool member in the YSA on Saturday and it was a blast!

3. Seeing our recent convert get the Priesthood on Sunday.

4. I just love serving in the YSA ward!

God is Great!
