Letter from Kelson - Week # 40 - Another day and the Life of a Missionary!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!

What is happening Ya'll!? Are you enjoying this great new year that is moving right along? Have you found out anything new about yourselves that you never knew before? Would you care to share them with me? If not I understand... :( I'll just cry right here on the ground, curled up in a ball, and think of how great a life I have....hehe Just kidding. 
This past week was kind of crazy, we had lots of meetings, because my companion is now the new District Leader and he had to go to some training meetings; I had a Doctor's appointment for my ankle, curse you evil DR. SPRINKLER; we had several appointments that followed through; and just a random family walked into the church building and wanted to meet with the Bishop. I'll start with the meetings. We moved Districts, which just means that I am still in the same area that I was in before, but I keep in close contact with a different set of missionaries. We now are in the district with …

Letter from Kelson - Week # 39 - I don't have to PACK!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

It is a wonderful day today, I think it is somewhere around 50-60 degrees with a slight wind coming from the west and just a hint of clouds in one area of the sky...GOSH I HATE THIS!!!! I want cloudy skies, with 20 degree weather and some SNOW!!!!! It is January and I want my SNOW! Maybe if I pray harder, God will grant me snow...or he will just laugh at me and say just you wait.
Anyways it is that time again and we have received our transfer call.  Elder Nethercott and I are staying to his bitter end. He goes home at the end of the transfer and it is going to be interesting for the next 5 weeks. So, Elder Nethercott has never wanted to have any leadership position, and he almost made it. For this last transfer he was made the District Leader and I am now his "District Monkey"...YAY Monkey. For those wondering, yes this is my second companion that I will be sending home, gosh I will need to stop this, otherwise they might call me a seri…

Letter from Kelson - Week # 38 - Oops I did it again!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!

The theme for this e-mail is such that it deals with the catchy pop tune from my childhood in the 90's by Britney Spears, before she went crazy. And It also has something to deal with an injury to Elder Wheeler and then forgetting to tell my mother about said injury until she is either notified by a bill or the mission nurse calling 7 weeks or more after said injury... So without further adieu "The story of the Turkey and the Sprinkler" 
It was a cool Fall morning in the Land of El Dorado Hills, The sun was shining; the Air smelled of fresh cut grass with a hint of Body Odor because I hadn't showered yet; and the ground was quite moist because of a rain storm the day before. Elder Wheeler woke up this wonderful morning with one intent/thought in his mind...
"I am going to play FOOTBALL Today!"
This thought spread to his companion who was Elder Baryshnikov and his now baptized friend Austin McD. These three characters al…

Letter from Kelson - Week #37 - I Love it When a Plan Comes together!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

For everyone's health and peace of mind, my subject is a line from the one and only best T.V Show of all time from its time period...Drum Roll Please....Oh Come on!!! You have read enough of my e-mails to know that when someone says drum roll you do it..... Why haven't you started to drum roll??? You want to be a party pooper right from the get go?! It is 2013 and you are really making the year start off terrible...hehe Just Kidding And for all those who now have purple legs, or handles or bruises on any part of them because they have been drum rolling this whole time I thank you for taking one for the team and being a team player. We need more of you in this world....Ummm what was I having you drum roll for again???  0_o...
I seem to have forgotten, well I will continue to write and maybe it will come back to me. However, please keep up the drum roll so that when the time comes that my memory comes back I can give you the answer to whate…

Letter from Kelson - Week # 36 - HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

Whoo Hoo we made it to 2013 and the zombies haven't eaten my brains yet.... :(  I wanted to be able to just pick up a gun and start unloading into a bunch of undead bodies...Dang Mayans and your wrong predictions. Since it is a new year and everyone is making new year's resolutions I think I will make one...I resolve that I will just stop being a normal person and become a missionary!!! And not only will I be a missionary, I will be the missionary that will help convert the POPE!!!! This is my resolution!!! And just like most of the rest of the world and their resolutions, I will probably not complete the second resolution, because I am in California and the POPE is in ROME... :( I will stick to the first and wont let go until it kills me, or 2014 comes...hehe
For all the world to hear and know, I had a very Merry Christmas!!! And it was super "White"!!! I was blessed to see 4 people enter into the waters of baptism during the m…
