Elder Porterfield

It's been a while since I posted anything about our son Kyle, who is serving a LDS mission in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission, so I thought I would bring you up to date. He has now been serving for 15 months. Time is going much faster than I thought it would.
He is now living outside of Pittsburgh in the New Kensington area. He is doing great and working hard. Kyle is the second from the right in the picture above. You might notice that the Elders in this pictures all have very similar hair cuts, that's because Elder Porterfield is the mission barber (what do you think Grandpa Cope?) and he only does one style.
He loves his mission and the people there. Since being out on his mission Kyle has developed a love of reading. I never would have guessed that would have happened. He is always asking us to send him books. My only concern for him is that he tells me he has lost weight. Oh well, that can be fixed easily enough. I think I would lose weight too if I was eating the kinds of food they are making in the video, they seems to enjoy it though!

Kyle does look a little thinner... That food they're making looks like the worst possible combination of ramen/eggs I could possibly imagine. Kyle, when you read this, try making the ramen like the instructions say, then drain out the liquid and bring it to a boil, then pour a beaten egg into it as you stir it around. POOF: Noodles, Egg drop soup and keep the toast on the side where it belongs!

I'm so happy - a new recipie!!
No, seriously... I don't remember making anything that disturbing in Pittsburgh! Definitely not a native dish!
Kyle does look a bit thinner, but you can fix that, Karie! He's doing a great job on the haircuts, though!
You must be so proud! Miss you!
