Monday is usually a bad day when it comes to the average people. First day of the week back to work, putting your shoulder to the grind and all....
but its opposite around the Rogers household. Actually it is one of our favorite days.
It's email day.
News from Elder Rogers Neighborhood:
Elder Rogers: I am doing good! just got over being sick. We went to a dinner at a member's home and i got a stomach bug. the house isn't ever clean. and i dont mean cluttered... i mean clean, like filth.... but i am doing better now. Mom: I'm trying so very HARD not to let my imagination get the best of me.....
Elder Rogers: So i have a new companion.... long story but Elder Beus got emergency transfered..... My new companion's name is Elder Herron (hair-in) he is as green as a spring willow branch. So i am "Step-Training" him. (that means this is his second transfer) He is..... a sweet kid and really wants to be a missionary. He is from "The Factory" can you guess where that is??? It means Utah the members say that Utah produced missionaries so the named it the factory. I guess Deep Creek is one of the hardest areas to work in because it is so unpredictable. I had no idea. I went up to Richmond again last week to talk with President about Elder Beus and to give him a blessing for his Stuttering. And while i was up there he said he was going to get transfered. So now i am with a new Comp in a dead area trying to rebuild it. Pres. said to act like you are opening a new area.... That means a whole lot of work ahead of me. (With a Greenienon the less) Mom: Wow, Koltn out only out 3 mos himself and a trainer? Good Job Bud!! You CAN do it!
Elder Rogers: So i got in my second bike wreck yesterday night. It was Crazy. This guy was stopped at a stop sign so i checked to make sure he wasn't going and then crossed the street. Well just so happens that he decided to go. WHAM hahaha i went flying and got some small scrapes and i hurt my broken arm a little i was afraid i messed it up but it felt better this morning. All my joints are super stiff today. Bike was ok. Just lost my chain. So the guy gets out of his car, and he was from Iran.... He said " I so srry, I so srry". Then he ran out and gave me a hug! haha i was ok so i talked to him a little and told him i was ok and everything was ok. I Gave him a pass along card and got his number. Hopefully i will get a teaching opportunity out of it!
Mom:...... crazy is not the word I would use to describe a bicycle/car accident~! again, trying very hard not to let my imagination get the best of me. I am sure that Heavenly father was watching over our boy-blessing from Heaven that he wasn't hurt!
Elder Rogers Oh.... Something else that is crazy out here. I will make sure i get a picture. There is so much pollen in the air from the trees and flowers that every night the cars (well everything really) gets a bright yellow dusting. yep you can actually see it all over stuff. It's funny too because It seems like everyone out here has allergies. And everyone has tears in there eyes and snot coming out of there nose! hahaha I am sure glad i am a Rogers. None of that for me. Everyone askes me how it is possible not to have allergies.... I just tell tham they dont come from a STRONG blood line like the Rogers.
I love you all. And miss you so much. I have a lot of pressure right now
Mom: This is not something a mom likes to hear, but I know our Koltn and know he works his best under pressure. I think pressure makes him excel. So along with a little concern, I am confident he will be just fine.
so I will try to email and write the best i can. I love you all: MOM, DAD, GRANDMA, GRANDPA, KISHA DAN, LINCOLIN,OWEN, KLETE, TATUM, WYATT, HUDDSON? (THATS HIS NAME RIGHT) KELSEY, BEAU, ACEY, AND THE UNBORN ONE AND ALL THE EXTENDED FAMILY.
I send my prayers and to you all and hope you all are doing good.
PS. how is work going for everyone. I have been praying for work for ya'll.
