Kyle entered the MTC on January 5th 2011. He was excited and didn't even look back as he walked away from my parents and into the doors of the MTC. He is going to be a great missionary and we are all missing him already! But proud of him all the same.
Before Kyle went into the MTC he was set apart. It was a special moment for the family to be together and hear this special blessing. Tyson was unable to make it because he had to work, but don't worry, I told him all about it when I got home! Kyle bore his testimony to all of us. For those of you who have not heard the testimony of my little brother you should know, he has one of the most humble and genuine testimonies around. He knows his purpose and he knows that he is meant to serve the Lord in Mexico at this time.
We went out to ice cream after his setting apart because that felt like a good way to celebrate. Gotta love going to Leatherbys! (I may not have spelled that right, but I love the place still the same). No matter how much the kids in my family grow up or what stage of life we are in I am sure we are always going to have fun. I love my brothers, and they are just like me. I am one lucky gal to have the family I have!
The day Kyle went into the MTC we all went to lunch together. Even though Kyle didn't have to report until almost 1:00, the family went out to lunch at 10:30 so Tyson and I could make it to work on time! We went to Brick Oven.
Kyle was not nervous. He was just excited as we ate! He ate without any tummy aches and he wasn't talking nervously or jittery. That is Kyle though, never seems to be nervous, just ready for his next adventure. I however, I don't know if I caught a bug or was just going to miss my brother but I had a belly ache. Oh well, at least the Missionary Man felt calm!
Kyle has loved his first few weeks in the MTC. The only thing he did not like his first week was that nobody wrote him. Little did he know, we did not have his mailbox # and we were waiting for him to write us! Oh well, we have the information now and can write him all we want.
If you would like to write Kyle I am sure he would appreciate it! His current address is below, that will be his address until the beginning of March. If you would like updates I would be happy to send those out! Just send me an email! I will also be updating Kyles address on his Facebook account as the time goes by.
Kyle is a great man and will do great things for the people of Mexico City. We are all very happy for him and he is a happy boy as well! WE LOVE YOU KYLE! (Not that he can read this......)
