Hi- Thanks for the pic of my room, so I kind of felt bad leaving my room really messy but I know you secretly enjoy cleaning it. So I hope you had fun and it gave you something to do :) haha
Tell Dave thank you so much for feeding my snake! Also tell him I have been playing a lot of volleyball here, and thank you for teaching me everything I know.

II didn't realize how big of a deal tie trading and stuff was but I could use some more ties,  Christmas present maybe ;) also one of my pairs of pants ripped (the ones I’ve had since Sophomore year) but its okay cause an Elder in my district can fix them. But I'm going to buy some new suits when I get to Peru!

The MTC is super fun and awesome, but I'm excited to get into the field because I have a feeling that it will be 10x better! I got a package from Anne this week the Elders in my casa were so mad :) but I shared it was all good. Thank you all!!!!   Count your many blessings! I love you guys so much! Even Alex! Oh and funny story, we had to make a profile to be an investigator for other missionaries to practice on us so I used Jordan as my investigator haha.

Glad you ate at Remunds, Tell Sherri since she forgot a golden word for my farewell she could give me one for my homecoming.

Grandpa sends me quotes each week and the one he sent this week we actually had a devotional on the other day and we watched a video of Elder Holland, he talked about the Preach My Gospel book and told us "notice how it says Preach 'My' Gospel, not your Gospel, the Lord's Gospel" I know this is his Gospel and the true Gospel and I'm so excited to take the things I've learned here out to the real world! I miss and love Grandpa!

So I got the sickness thats going around here the other night and it was super fun! :D I had to sleep on my bathroom floor for a few hours :) even laying on the floor I wasn't discouraged, I was like, wow I feel like crap but seriously is that it, there is no way I'm going to let this get me down. I got about 3 hours of sleep that night but I still went to work the next day at 6.30 learning spanish and the gospel going hard all dang day. I love and miss all of my family and friends but I'm here for a purpose and I'm not coming home till that purpose is fulfilled.

I challenge you and Bubby to share your testimonies this week :)  Oh hey let the Wade's know I met Emily! She is super nice and cool!

Love you talk to you again soon, Love you!!

Thank you so much for the packages!! They both got here on Monday - so everyone was super jealous. haha!  I shared though :) and there is still a lot left. Yesterday we had a "fiesta" we sat in our room during a little bit of free time and ate some of the chips and queso. 

The CCM (mtc) is pretty awesome, I'm working out everyday and playing basketball or volley ball everyday. Hermana Mckenna and I are in the same zone so we have sacrament together. I gave the sacrament prayer on the bread this week and then she got called up to say a talk (we all have to write a talk each week and they randomly call some of us up). I forgot to tell you, last week in sacrament they called me up to give my talk, and then they also asked me to give the closing prayer  Its so cool seeing all of the Snow Canyon kids here,  I always talk to Elder Moore and Elder Hillstead, and there are a few others here as well.  Are you remembering to feed Hingle McringleBerry? (my snake)?  
Love you,

Hey! My first week here has been awesome! I´m learning a ton of Spanish! My companion is way cool, he´s from Oregon, he did a year at BYU.  We like the same kind of music and we both do sports, we’ve been getting along really well and have been having a lot of fun together and with all of the other Elders and Hermanas in our zone. Gym time is fun I play basketball almost every day except for once I played volley ball. The food is good but it’s just a little off you know? Haha but yeah I’ve seen a lot of people I know and 150 more new missionaries are getting shipped in today and I know some who are coming as well. I’m having a great time! Everything is awesome!  

Im still trying to decide what I want on the inside of my Rugby State Championship ring..... still a hard decision. Do “I AM RANGA”. 

Wednesday is my pday here at the MTC. I´m always super tired but other than that it´s golden. Well I’m logging off now! Can you please send me my cord for my camera so I can email pictures? Send it in a manila envelope though because they cant get packages here. love you mom! Tell Parker I’m still buffer than him and I’ve been waking up early every morning he should wake up too ;) have a great week I love you tell everyone I say hi! 
Love you and miss you! 
Love, Elder Lambson  

haha me and my companion decided log back on one more time for today ;) I hope you are having a good day and a good week. How are you guys finding entertainment without me there? Love you! Talk to you next week.  Here is a pic from my first day, I saw a guy trying to break this concrete up and I wanted to help, he let me but wanted to take my picture.  He sent it to me.  Wow, I really did break a lot of the concrete.   Love you! Talk to you next week

Grandpa Linneer – Kaleen’s dad, spent a week here helping get him ready. 
Kiel Wrote him:

Thank you for emailing me grandpa! Thats an awesome quote I wrote it down in little pocket book. Thank you for all you have done for me to help get me out into the mission field! I hope you're doing well! Have a great week.

Hi Kiel:  Hope all is well...

Arrived at the Mexico MTC

Kiel left Tuesday, July 1st, from the St. George Airport.  He flew with 3 other Elders to Salt Lake City.  He ran into his Young Mens President in the SLC airport and they were able to visit, Kiel said he gave him some great last minute advise.  I am so grateful for the amazing influences in his life and how they are always there for him.  After a 5 hour layover Kiel and 7 other Missionaries flew to Atlanta GA.  Kiel called me when he arrived in GA and again right before take off to Mexico.  It was GREAT to hear his voice.  I was able to watch the Delta flight plan, on their site, and watched as Kiel's plane landed in Mexico.  I googled the MTC and found this story.  Its a great News clip of the MTC and where he will be living for the next month. . About 2 hours after landing I got the following email from Elder Lambson.   (Elder Moore is from our Ward, he flew to Mexico last week, so glad they got to see each other)

Hey mom this is my first email from the mtc we just got here, the first person i saw here was elder moore haha so let the moores know. I hope you guys are doing well. Im doing pretty good just a little tired. We'll do some activities tonight then get to bed. the flights werent too bad there were lots of elders and sisters, about 20! Well i've got to go, tell everyone I love them!
