Well it's definitely good to hear that Uncle Matt is doing better. I was looking at a couple pictures the other day and there is one of Uncle Matt and Uncle Dan Utley. It made me appreciate being able to spend a few months in their home even though I wasn't around that much. So he will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers. 

I'm glad that the wasps finally beat Park City for the first time in forever... That's really nice. Should've happened a couple years ago. But it happens. Too bad the Eagles are going downhill as well but hey. That's life. It's been like 80 degrees all week down here in the ol valley of the wind. I guess during this time of year they get what they call Santa Ana's and it's just crazy times of wind and stuff. So that's wicked awesome when you're on a bike. But all is well in Zion. I like throwing pity parties in my mind and then hearing about people that have it like 5 billion times worse then I do so I just shut my mind up haha. We tried this thing this week called chalk talk. We went to the park and drew up the Plan of Salvation on the sidewalk and put questions in front of it that said, "where are we from"  "why are we here" and "where are we going" we had a couple decent discussions with people. But one stellar one with a guy named Jon who was with a friend named Jon so that was funny, but we are going to meet with this week sometime to discuss it more with him. We started talking about families and I asked him about his. His response was unfortunate,  he said his mom has been a crack head her whole life, he started dealing drugs when he was 8 to get money, he got addicted to drugs and was doing LSD all the time and his dad committed suicide when Jon was 17 and he continued to be in the drug scene, till he found Jesus and is now i'm assuming pretty clean, but he's an awesome guy. My companion said, "It sounds like you've had a pretty rough life." and his response was amazing. He said "Nah, I wouldn't say I had it easier then someone who's had the appearance of an easy life, just different struggles." That was really neat.

But anyways not much else to report on here. My Black Citizen watch.... The band broke so I need to send it home so it can get fixed. I think i'm just gonna send all my watches home and buy some cheapo from Target or something. Especially since i'm on a bike.

One of the ladies in the ward went to the Magic Kingdom this weekend and brought me the suckers that are little Mickey heads...... It made my day. There still sitting in the apartment, I don't know if I want to eat them. They're precious haha but i'm going to try and send some pictures to Nic today. So i'm gonna go try that. I love you a lot and I miss everyone very much. Still no word from any of the Kelson clan..... That upsets me! Filthy weasels. But I'll talk to you soon!

Love,

Elder Scott
