No Date
Dear Family,
Well, I'm guessing that this will be the last letter I write home on my mission. It seems a little pointless to send a letter that will probably arrive about the same day as I do.
Let's see, what's new? Well, we did the incline again but this time we decided to carry our bikes up it! We got some crazy looks! This one guy told us that he's been hiking the incline for a few years and he's never seen anyone try to carry their bikes up. It was a lot of work...but not as bad as the first time I did it. I was so sore the first time.
After we did the incline we went to Red Rock where there's a ton of bike trails. We rode around there and then found a trail with jumps on it! It was way cool. We're going to go back today and ride it some more. The Elders from Woodland Park are going to come with us. Should be lots of fun.
I found an Elder in Pueblo West that wants my bike so I think I'll sell it to him. I don't really want to pay to ship it home. Besides, I have my road bike that I can fix up.
So, right now we have two people with a date for baptism. They are a young couple. I think I told you about them in my e-mail.
We have a few lessons scheduled for today so we hope we'll have more people with a date tonight.
I just got your letter yesterday mom. It's always fun to get your letters.
It sounds like you and grandma had a fun time together. I look forward to having time with all of you again!
I will be interested to see the changes you see in me because although I can see some change I don't think I've noticed every change. I still feel like me! Still like to have fun...and can't wait to listen to real music and play my guitar!
Well, I need to get this letter off to you (before I forget to send it).
I love you all! Can't wait to see you...even though, I must admit, I'm a little nervous to come home. Now that it's so close it's kind of scary! But I do look forward to seeing all of you.
Take care
Love Elder Cryer
P.S. Thought you might like to know that I'm doing two baptismal interviews for the district today! I'm excited! I did an interview for someone the Zone Leaders were teaching. I did that a few days ago.

  1. Dear Cryer family,

    I want to let you know what a super missionary Elder Cryer was while he was here serving. Our family so appreciated his great spirit, his gospel knowledge and his sense of humor. His work ethic was obvious to us, and it showed in his actions and his teaching.

    Since we were out of the country the last couple of weeks, we came home to a new missionary in the ward. He's going to be a good one as well, but we and the mission are certainly going to miss having Elder Cryer here. All the best to him in his future endeavors (and I expect to see your name in lights one of these days, elder!). To your whole family, thank you for sharing him with us.
