Letter From Kelson - Week # 74 - When Change gives you Lemons, You go to the bank for some Cash! xD

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!! I just want you to know how ridiculously Good Looking all of you look right now! I can just see the beauty radiating from your perfectly proportioned faces, which are in no way wearing a mustache right now because I have Google funny Picture editor on...*cough* I mean, that you all have a certain covering over your lip that may pose a problem in identifying you when your friends come over and ask where you went, because of your Super Spy lip covering that is so amazing that it makes even the most distinguishing features just disappear, and then you will Reply "they went that a way" *and Point both left and right.... I wish I could see the looks on your friends' faces when they realize that they are in fact talking to you and they then feel it necessary to face palm, and walk away because of the shear random and unexpectedness of this notion. (Please upload any videos of your experience with this strategic lip covering to my blog th…

Letter From Kelson - Week # 73 - Could I get this "Exchange"d for something cooler?!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!

It is a beautiful day here in the Sacramento Valley, there is a nice cool breeze with a hint of supernatural Smoggy flavor, stirred in with some sweaty kids BO...Oh wait that is me... Oops!  Sports was super fun today, we played a game called SmashBall!! It is a version of volleyball, without a net and lots of angry smashes between teams, and maybe a hint of Four Square! I haven't played four square since elementary school. YAY Memories! 
This week has been off the hook! Pardon my California Beach Bum terminology, but I am talking this week was C-A-RAZY! WE had like 50 gagillionbillionzillion Exchanges this week and it just made this past week go so fast that my brain was blown right out of my skull, went through a timewarp and met me in the future to punch me in the back of the head for trying to schedule so many things all in one week...It was brutal, I have to say that this was the most intense Gibbs slap I have ever received; but this isn&…

Letter from Kelson - Week # 72 - Time is Money, and I'm Broke!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!
I must apologize in advance for the length of this letter, it seems that their ain't no rest for the wicked...and that means no rest for those trying to help the wicked either. Anyway, I am pretty wicked myself, so no self indulged pride there, just making a statement on how little time I have to write this P-Day. We have been going Mach 5 with our hair on fire since 630 this morning, last week...I think that works. It has been crazy, the weeks are blending together, my companion and I are always trying to help out the missionaries in our Zone, and we are striving to be the best Leaders possible, while helping them to aspire to be better missionaries themselves. We also are trying to see success in our own area. There is quite a lot on my plate, and I am wondering what thanksgiving is going to look like...With this much food and I am only in September.
I have some super news! Arturo, the super awesome guy from Stockton that got baptized, well…

Letter From Kelson - Week # 71 - Runnin' Runnin' Runnin' Like a Constipated Weenier Dog!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!
What a beautiful day it is today! WE have overcast clouds and maybe some rain on the Horizon! ;) Oh Wait!
Good Morning From Not Quite So Sunny California!!!
That's better.
This week was so exciting that I think I will just start at the point where things went crazy! It started going crazy about Thursday. We had Zone Conference this past week and it was my first time getting to sit up on the stand behind the Mission President as I waited to report on how our Zone is doing. We got to report that this month we had 6 people enter into the waters of baptism and we had 5 more on their way...It was really cool because the other Zones had similar situations and the Mission President was happy to hear of our success. I have been at some Zone Conferences where no one is hitting their goals and that's when the Lecture comes; not because we are bad missionaries, but it is to make sure we are held accountable for our goals. If we aren't held accoun…
