Elder Larsen

Kyle has officially been in the Provo MTC for 19 days!  His "lovely" companion is Elder McGuire.  Lets just say that they haven't become the best of friends yet.  The first week or so Kyle struggled with sickness.  He claims that the food tastes like dirty feet and that they let it sit for a year before serving it to them!  I think he is picky personally.. but after losing 16 pounds and acquiring food poisoning, he is starting to feel much better. 
In one of Kyle's letters he said that his district is always jealous of him because on average he gets 14 letters and 2 packages a day!! AND WANTS MORE!  So if you would like to write to Elder Larsen he would love it!

Kyle is learning German so well!  He said he feels almost fluent and that it is already getting hard to transfer back to English.  His first day of class he went in and the teacher only spoke German and that's how it's been since.  He has class for 9 hours a day and about 35 German textbooks to study with.  A cool bit of information he shared was that the amount of German that they are learning  in 3 months would take the average person 45 years to learn!
During an interview he was told that "Europe is a great sleeping giant for missionary work, Germany was going to wake that giant up.  Elder Larsen I can feel you are going to play a special role in the awakening of this great sleeping giant".  That is so awesome!  I can't wait to see what is in store for him in the great city of Germany!
