Well.......guess what! The Golden Child got it all. He is companions with Elder Rostedt and he is assigned to Otaru! We are soooooooooo excited for him. Someone in Otaru is waiting for this kid to touch their life. At least 100 people! As you can see in the photos below, he is all smiles (as is his family).
Here is the email Kelson sent us after getting to Japan....
Hi family. I'm safe in Japan and I'm loving every second of it. I keep being baffled looking at the buildings wondering where the heck I am. I keep thinking it's Salt Lake. Then I see Kana (Japanese writing). It's so so so awesome. Well I don't have a ton of time, but I will tell you the coolest thing ever. You will never guess who my Trainer is. Elder Rostedt is my trainer. Whoever would've guessed it. When I told him that I had gotten and read all of his emails, he said "Yup that sounds like my dad" not surprised at all. Also we are in Otaru. Somebody is watching out for me and caring for me. I love you all, and was so glad to hear your voices. Love you a ton.
