Letter From Kelson - Week #53 - MORMONS RULE!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!

Hey everybody and welcome back to California!!! It is beautifully HOT here. It has been around 89-90 degrees all week and I have to ride my bike in this hot weather. It is getting a bit harder to do missionary work because there is this inclination to just stop in on members who are home and soak up as much A/C as possible. That is because our A/C back home in our apartment doesn't work. Thus we are kind of dying, but that also is me whining and complaining about how I should be pampered and how I need something comfortable and happy. Almost like this mission is supposed to be easy and there are baptisms at every corner. Alas, that isn't true, however, there are possibilities for 4 baptisms in May and not only that, but a wedding of a family that we have been working with and a transfer....There are a lot of things going on in May, and I am not ready for it to come. Because this will be my last May in California as a missionary... Uh oh. I…

Letter from Kelson - Week # 52 - ... ... ... This is a Recording!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!

So normally I come up with a catchy title/subject for my e-mails and then base the e-mails all on that, but this time I couldn't think about a catchy title/subject that I would talk about this week. I know you may feel at this time that Elder Wheeler has changed so much that his sense of humor is dwindling in unbelief (Book of Mormon joke), but please don't worry your head too much, he is just taking a break from writing you this week, he is spending time with his new Niece and I am the computer coming up with witty ways to explain that he is not here, because he has covertly flown to Utah to say hello and good-bye to his new friend and family member leaving his companion alone with the members of this ward. Please don't tell his mission president, they might revoke his ability to write home, which would make your lives pretty miserable, because then you can't read his witty e-mails every week and then your life will not be fulfille…

Letter from Kelson - Week #51 - Look beyond what you see!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!

It is yet another day in the life of Elder Wheeler! In this episode we find our hero struggling to fill some rather large shoes, but it seems someone else sees greatness within him! Our hero has now had to take on the responsibility of being a District Leader, which means that he is now responsible for 7 other missionaries, besides himself. He is about to explode from the overload! He has had a hard time making sure he is taking care of himself, now he has to go on exchanges and teach with other people, help them become better, while becoming better from their help too, show them an increase of love and encouragement while they are down in the dumps, and pick up his companion as he is holding onto all the other stuff that Elder Wheeler can't handle. Plus on top of that he has to keep his area looking like a model area for the other people to look at...I think I may explode from the overwhelming crazy life! I feel like my mother, going Mach 3 w…

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!! 

It is a wonderful, blustery day here in sunny California. The winds are blowing at around 25-30 NMPH (Nautical Miles per Hour) It makes it really difficult to ride your bike, but you know when you are as great as I am and have thighs with the strength and ability to leap to the moon and back, it doesn't keep you from doing your job, but my companion on the other hand has been suffering. I am currently riding on my 3rd bike (for the first time viewers please see e-mails #...actually I have no idea ask my mother), this bike is a single speed, which means that I have one big gear and one small gear, making this bike a bullet. I leave my companion in the dust sometimes without even knowing it. I have to be careful, because I think they might start pulling me over and writing speeding tickets for me. This bike is called the "Liahona - Outlaw!" It is the fastest bike in the west and has become a legend in the mission...at least it will …

Letter From Kelson - Week #49 - Can I get a HOORAH!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!! Why hello and welcome to the next installment of the Price is Right! I am your host Elder Wheeler and I will be just giving away free copies of the Book of Mormon to anyone who reads this e-mail. If you already have one I am sorry, but we do not give out extras...unless you are going to give it to a friend, then by all means take as many as you would like. Now, once you stop scratching your heads about why I said the Price is Right, I will then inform you of said reason.... ... ... Done yet? Ok I will tell you anyway, The Price for Salvation is Right...ehhh Did I get ya?!?! I thought it would be appropriate because we just celebrated Easter!!! Wahoo!! We have been officially saved from Eternal Death and Hell, if we accept the Gospel and follow the Commandments of God, for absolutely nothing! Salvation is free because of the sacrifice performed so many years ago. I am so happy to be able to celebrate this, because this is the business in which I …
