Absorbed in the Work

The Baptism went great on Friday. My companion performed the baptism and I did the confirmation. It wasn't perfect, but Bishop Zeh helped me out.

I am more and more absorbed in the work and I cannot believe I've been out a month.  Anyway, I am halfway through this transfer. Time flies when you work hard.
I have not yet received the package, but I will check later today.

All is well here. I feel like I've about lost what I gained in weight at the MTC. I am up to 2 sets of 30 crunches every morning and 2 sets of 10 push-ups. Food is good. I've had a bit of BBQ here, not that I'm complaining. I love BBQ. Btw, I have had cereal just about everyday in the field and I am not ashamed to say that haha.

Weather is getting warmer and the humidity is rising as well. But I am adapting to it well.

I am trying to do the best I can. I am grateful for the scriptures and prayer and how it gives me strength. I listen to my music everyday and it really helps. The other Elders in my District have a collection of music that I will soon put onto either a USB or CD. They have a bunch of music that I love. They have The Piano Guys, Prince of Egypt, and an adaptation of Baba Yetu. If you see anything at the store that looks like something I would like, feel free to email me and use some money from my account. I will be celebrating Star Wars Day by listening to the soundtracks I have with me on the iPod.

As of scriptures, I am in Helaman 15. I loved in 13 and 14 about Samuel the Lamanite and his prophesying of the Savior's birth and death.

I hope all else is well at home. 
With love,
Elder Kestner
P.S. Pictures coming! With Skyping, I will send the chat invite at 4 pm EST or 2 pm MST. We will be at the same home as where the video is from. Sister Howells is her name.
Love you lots and I am looking forward to seeing ALL of you!
