dude that kids awesome! little fridge child. it is wierd how old the little ones are getting haha. i dont like it really. my new area is extremely flat. a crap ton of trees and ponds which is both cool and not cool cause theres no distance anywhere. its like living in a box sometimes. the branch is pretty awesome though. lots going on it it and the testimonies of the people who go are very stong for the most part. they are growing so its good. this week the most mentionable thing was that i had the most gross dinner ive had yet on my mission. so nasty. just thinking about it kinda clouds all my other experiences. haha. the coolest thing i guess that happened was on tuesday. we taught a lady the plan of salvation. our second time meeting with her. she kept all her commmitments from the first time by reading the bom a pamphlet and she watched the restoration dvd. she told us she knew it was true and that joseph smith really had the first vision. so awesome. so naturallywe offer baptism.... not cool. she knew it was true but she said she grew up in her pentecostal church and has been rooted there and cannot be uprooted cause she loves it and her pastor. naturally this is saddening. we pretty much told her everything we could but she said she probably doesnt want to learn more for now. so heres the cool part. i was like "ok, so i have to say this cause its my job to bring you closer to Christ and if i dont i'll be leaving you without giving you a full chance. so, you fully understand and realize that you are following satan and a man instead of following Jesus Christ knowing that these things are true?" and she went back into her preacher being so great and all that crap. so we are gonna give her some time and bring some members over there and hopefully she will be able to slowly transistion in. it was just cool to say something so blunt, super sad though that even that didnt work. hopefully its stewing in her soul right now. haha. other than that. we have zone conference starting tomorrow and wednesday. not much else going on. oh we have a baptism this week too on saturday.
love you all.

hello family,

dude coach reiter! i miss that guy. is he still coaching the waterpolo team. howd katie do in her meet. good job with the gym. i've stilll been doing insantity and p90x . i messed up my back last night stretching. something well outta place. i felt it haha. its a little better today after insanity so thats good though. katie driving is a scary thought. she bettter drive my truck to keep her out of trouble. theres no where to make out in that thing haha. why do you drive to lugo 4 times everyday? that seems a little excessive. ha.  thats crazy that so many daltons are getting married all at once.  have fun with youth conference. not much has been going on with me. my comp is still cool haha. we've gotten some new investigators this week that should be solid if they take the steps. for some reason it seems like people will be completely in and believe it all and know what it means, but once you ask them to move you can see there high excitement drop from their faces haha. action is not a requirement out here for most churches. oh well, we'll see. we still have a few baptisms coming up soon. probably in the next month we could have 7. if everything goes how it should. maybe more. i think me and my pres are doing ok. haha i havent talked to him in awhile so who knows. it doesnt matter either way. i'm trying to be more obedient so it'll work out either way. i could go for some pinapple upsidown cake right about now. i havent made anything interesting lately. i've been eating a lot of salmon for lunches. i'm excited for saturday cause a lady in our ward is gonna make us chicken and waffles. mmhmm. the foods been pretty good so far. theres some sketchy places we eat at but its all good. i havent gotten sick yet cause i believe in Jesus so its all good. prayer works ha. linger longers are always a good idea. people show up when there's food. its sad. but true. oh, dad. if you dont mind moving to mississippi, i may have found you a job. haha. probably a good one too. my branch president is in industrial building. i told him about you. just saying. well have a good week everyone. good to hear from you. love you all

hey mom,

the lairds can email me. our mission president just changed the rules so we can email anyone thats not in our mission boundaries. kyle.dalton@myldsmail.net  whats the youth conference gonna be? so you destroyed yourself at the gym huh? haha. you should make sure you stretch definately. i've been doing insanity and p90x so ive been getting pretty flexible compared to how i was. its great haha. the videos always make you stretch before and after the work out. good luck giving out the bom. its fun. theres a lot more adrenaline to it when you arent a missionary and used to doing it. haha. good luck. love you mama. read dads email to get the rest.

The Mission address has changed to:
Elder Kyle Dalton
175 Burnham Road

how are ya? being good? becoming athletic? getting good grades? respect yourself! love you

connor, love you man. miss you. go outside and scrape your knees. dont get soft on me.



I heard that rancho was making a mission. thats pretty cool. good to hear your baptism happened. especially good to hear the your missionaries are still working. i wish i could train. it would give me more reason to work hard. its hard sometimes. haha. things are going really good here though. we've got baptisms just showing up. im trying to figure out how to handle all the people we are teaching and need to teach while finding still. its hard in our area cause its sooo huge and spread out. i havent mastered it yet but i think we are closer to figuring out how we want to attack it all. twill be interesting. we have zone conference this month on the 26th so im hoping for a general authority. it always feels good to get rebuked. haha. i need to work on creating relationships myself. i've lost some of it in the business side. any new advice? glad to hear your still working. i know why you are. When did jordan get home? i knew he was due but when was it. as for me. the coolest thing thats happened lately. we were teaching a new member with her inactive family. and she has a schitzophrenic uncle that never talks. and we were teaching her having a hard time explaining what a testimony is, shes ten. and all the sudden her uncle started asking her directive questions explaining what a testimony is. haha it was pretty awesome. weve never heard him do more than mumble before, but he was clear as day. pretty awesome. love ya. have a good week.

I'm excited for joanna. she seems like shes focused and happy. its awesome. makes me happy. anyways. this week was really good. taught some new and old investigators and i found out that something i said to an investigator has been tugging at his heart for a little while from the other missionaries. its cool to know. im outta time cause the library is about to close but basically good week. and we saw a girl get blown up, not hurt dont worry. elder flint ate it hard mt biking, it was awesome. and thats pretty much it. love you have a good week

Hey family,

Sorry to here life sucks in the dalton family. Hopefully it gets better quick. I don't envy you dad. Haha, that sucks. Good attitude though, keep it up haha. The weather over here has been on and off. It's been really nice lately though. I've been trying to be more healthy too, I'm back to my normal weight haha. I gained like ten pounds but I'm ok now. Me and elder flint actually started insanity today to so I should start getting pretty fit soon. Should be sweet. I take a multivitamin and vitamin c and fish oil everyday. That's all I can afford haha. I'll have to go back and see what janaes sleeping suggestion was cause I don't remember. But yeah, things have been good here. I'm trying harder to keep the rules more fully. We got some new investigators and 3 baptismal dates for march second. Hopefully we can help that happen. I think it will. I may or may not be here though for it cause this transfer is only going to be 5 weeks cause the MTC has to catch up with the new missionaries coming in. So we'll see if I'm here after that. It'll be 6 months soon. Pretty cool. Anyways. Love you guys, have a good week.
