Q: How do you get rid of the Mormon Missionaries?
A: Leave a chalk outline and a few Book of Mormons scattered around on the front porch!

HAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was funny (dvytkyu64rwrfv3t54) <----- That was Sister Wagner who put that in the email. She is funny. Well thank you for the 20 it will be put to good use. 
One request if to take lots of pictures at the Fall Festival. I will miss it so much. :( Oh well. So lots have been going on and I am super excited! We have a lot of people who will be getting baptized soon. OH YAY! I'm staying in Brigham through another transfer with Elder Mitchell. This will be the longest I have been with a companion. Three transfers. 
So any way we are also looking into getting tickets to go down to General Conference. It was super cool that recently I was in the Temple Cultural Celebration. How are things with yall. Sorry I cant think of much to talk about so I think I'll send another letter when more pops up and Sister Wagner is amazing/best missionary ever!!!

In Every Life, A Little Rain Must Fall

I am so sorry about you getting stuck in the rain while putting on new wipers. The funny thing is, when I got them for my car and started to try to put them on, it was raining bad, for me too.  I was at autozone getting wet, trying to figure it out when finally, one of the guys inside came out and asked if I needed help. I think it's funny how we had a similar problem. Oh but aren't the rainx wipers so good. We have them on our cars here as well because they work great. I was also confused when they said my wiper blades were actually different sizes. Things here have been going great. I am hoping to stay in Brigham, as it has just gotten a new Temple that is going to be dedicated this Sunday. I am wanting to go do work there asap. It was so much fun to be able to go there almost every day with people that we are teaching. We were there so much that the sister missionaries had us go get stuff for them since they were there all day. They enjoyed working there a lot but are happy to be able to go back to teaching the people in their areas. As for what we have been up to, we have started to teach some new people and 2 of them are going to get baptized. One of our converts will be going to the Temple to do baptisms for the dead. We are going to see if we can go to support her. We can actually help except maybe the confirmations. We will have to see. as for my blessing I will be getting it on Friday at 6. Thanks for being so patient with me. I have the letter for you, but I am going to add a little to it. I forgot to send it but hey, I wouldn't be me if I didn't forget something lol! hmmmm. Maybe I was wrong about the patient part of you waiting on my blessing. lol Oh man just teasing. I love your nagging haha! I will be sending the memory card after the next transfer so I can get pics with those that will be leaving and then you can have those. I am so happy about all that I am teaching. One of the families that we have been teaching is going to be going to conference. We are seeing if we can get tickets to go. I am super excited to possibly go down and actually see it in person. The members here have been super great. They have treated us great and have been a huge help in teaching we are being fed every night and I have enough food for lunch and breakfast. As for what I need.... I don't know but when I find out I will let you know.         
haha I love you so much, you mean so much to me. I hope this will help as you wait for the letter.

Slowing Down

Things have been going so good. It has been incredible being in Brigham. I love this area so much. The people here are so wonderful. I love the those that I teach. Its been super fun. We have been able to take almost everyone we are working with through the Temple for the open house. It has been a really good experience. I have been having a great time with all the missionaries that I am serving around. They have a good time even when they work. There is not much going on here. Things are slowing down a bit now that school has started back up. It makes the afternoons a little more difficult. The nice thing is that it is easier for us to catch people in the evening. I got all the stuff you sent and I think the letters are on their way from Ogden to here. I hope all is well.  I'm not sure what to write about because my brain doesn't seem to want to help me out today. Oh, I had one thought if there is anything you would like to know you could put them in an email for next time. I have already began work on my blessing and it shouldn't take long anymore (I hope, knock on wood). My brain seem to be saying that it is sleeping today and I am on my own, which is hard because I need it to think. Ok, (now that my craziness is over) I hope everyone is doing good. I miss you guys so much. I love you a lot more then you shall ever know. Did you ever find the quad? love ya's me amigo.
Love Elder Felton

Man, I Miss Your Cooking

*Note: ((Parentheses on this letter indicate me, the mom, replacing the name of a person or to something else to better explain the email and protect the person mentioned))

Alright, you have got to tell ((Jon's friend who is getting married)) to write me. Tell him I said, "What the heck man?". I am so happy for them, those two are great. I forgot that after high school the ward gives adult callings lol. I am glad Noah is doing good. ((Left his name here on purpose)) I miss him. I got the picture of him. My poor dog doesn't know whats going on haha. Man I miss your cooking. Lately I have been having to eat more weird stuff and because I don't want a person to get mad, I'll eat it even if I know it will make me sick. There have been a few time we had to stop working so I could sit on my throne as toilet king for and hour or so. ((Maybe I should have left that out but decided to leave it)) I am sooo happy for ((couple expecting a baby)). I remember when he left for a mission himself, I cant believe it. Go Brother Kulenholeter I am happy for him he is a good man and I believe that he will be happy. ((left name on purpose)) Holy poop I cant believe Emma is 2! What the heck?! ((Took out last name,favorite baby he left behind)) I am so happy that ((Friend at Church joined the military)) is doing well. he is a good kid. I am happy that he is making steps back to church and that he is taking care of his family. I still worry about him so its nice to hear some good news. Now I have something else to worry about lol. Well tonight I will send the letter for you to read to the ward. I don't know much to think of right now. OH YEA! Grandma Christy and Andy are going to the Temple open house today with me and my companion. I will tell you how it goes in the letter.  Well I am glad all is well. We are having a good time here and having a lot of success.
