Elder Alaska

My Elder Carlson has been gone for almost nineteen months.  I really miss him sometimes.  I miss his laugh and going on hikes with him.  He seems pretty happy where he's at so I try not to spoil things.
Right now he's a district leader over missionaries in Wasilla Alaska.  That's where Sarah Palin and her family live.  We watched all of her Alaska shows last year and recorded them.

Summers are beautiful there but this winter the news said it's been very brutal.  Some how way up north is getting all the snow and we continue to have spring like weather.  Go figure.

Missionaries in Alaska do a lot of service activities.  Some of them involve hard labor.  Doesn't bother me, hard work is good for the soul!
