Kels and Em!

My week has been good. A little bit stressful, but just because I have a lot of things to do before I leave, and I’m really worried about making weight. My bag is like 15 pounds without anything in it so I’m hoping that I can fit everything I need and still be under what I’m supposed to be. I might buy another luggage piece from the bookstore. I hope that is okay. 🙂
I’m so excited you get to watch T and G. I miss those little boys so much. Tell them I love them. There is an Elder that was in our zone that just left on Tuesday, and he reminded me so much of G. He was really tender and sensitive, and he even looked like him, only with darker coloring. Pretty funny. It was really sad when that district left. They only got here a week before us so we’ve spend the most time with them. We had a really hard night the day they all left, because we were so sad. They are such great Elders, and I can really say that they are some of my best friends ever.
I’m glad you are staying busy. It is really good to be doing things a lot. I feel bad for all the time I wasted when I didn’t really have any purpose in my life. It’s kind of sad. But things will be different from now on.
Spanish is coming along. I feel like I don’t know near enough, but everyone tells me that I know enough to get by, and I’m not expected to actually learn Spanish in the MTC. You learn it the most out in the field. So hopefully I’ll be learning A LOT of Spanish in the field. 🙂 I’m looking forward to seeing some of the people that I met in the MTC that went to my same mission too, so that should be really fun.
In other news, we had our last devotional on Tuesday, and guess who came to speak to us…Elder Richard G. Scott! Yeah the apostle! It was so great. We haven’t had an official member of the twelve this whole time, but we lucked out that we got one before we left. Some people never get to see an apostle. It was pretty neat. He did an amazing job of course, and he blessed us, with the authority of his apostleship, with the gift of tongues. It was so amazing.
Anyway I was wondering if there was anyway, you could send me my address for in the mission field so that if I decide I want to send something there so I don’t have to pack it, I can. That would be fantastic. Gracias!
I will be sending pictures this week. I tried to this last week, but there was an issue in the bookstore so they didn’t get printed off. But now they are, so they’ll be coming soon.
I better go now I love you lots. Love, Hermana Kelsey
Padre, I’m glad you are doing good. Bye. 🙂 Love, Hermana Kelsey
I’m sorry you are having such a hard time with the baby. (Note: Emily had one of those babies from Child Development, it cried for hours last night) When I was in high school, it was extra credit to do that, so I never did it. Anyway, I better go now. I’ll write you a real official letter once you write me one. 🙂 Love you lots. Love, Hermana Shelton
P.S. How is Sandy doing?
