Good Morning From Liquid Sunshiny California!!!!

"What a glorious feeling I'm Happy again!!!" To all those who have no idea the reference of my subject and the first line of this here e-mail I apologize...your childhood was stripped from you and you should invent a time machine to go back and try again. 
It is raining!!! And I am riding a Bicycle.  .  . . .    Please take a moment to feel sorry for me... .. ... I said a moment, not the whole day...haha
Thank you for your condolences, but I will be just fine. I am not a wicked witch, so I am safe as a cucumber. I am learning great and wonderful things about my bike though. In my last area I went trail riding a couple of times with a super sweet member of the church. Well, while I was hitting the slopes and rocking the Mountain biker adrenaline levels I hit a few trees, stumps, rocks etc...and my bike seems to be a bit beat up. My front brake is unusable and my rear brake is always rubbing. I lost the use of gear number 7,…

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

Guess who it is? That's right it is I, Elder Wheeler, the one and only. So I have some crazy news for the whole world to hear!!! Are you ready World??? Are you sure?...Come on put your back into it...Alright i think you're ready now...I am being transferred from the beautiful lush El Dorado Hills to the most amazing and humble place on the earth...South Sacramento, where they have roads that are off limits to missionaries after the sun goes down, and the possibility of death and mayhem...I told you that you weren't ready. Gosh, come on world get with the program. Actually it really isn't that bad at all. I am super pumped to go down to South Sac and to teach.

Letter from Kelson - Week # 32 - I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

I know that you might be wondering why I said good morning when it is clearly almost night time...Well It is morning somewhere and that is all that matters. I apologize for the amount of time it took to write today, we have had a day full of pictures and service and Christmas card making. If you would like to receive a Christmas card, let my mother know and I will have her send me the list of addresses that I will then send out cards to. 
It has been an interesting week. We started it off with a bit of craziness. We had a few FHE (Family Home Evening) appointments and some jumping around to accommodate all the people we wanted to and needed to see. We taught many lessons this week and most of them were Member Present Lessons, so that is good for all around happiness.
