Service anyone?

Well, from the title of this email, maybe you can tell that we did a lot of service this week!! And it was so much fun!! But more on that later!

First I want to start off by saying thank you for the letters from Jamie Webb, Tasha Wheatley, and Celeste Hernandez!! I loved each of them! :)

Ok, now to get started on what happened during the week. On Monday the 20th, that was Pday! And it was also Elder Williamson's birthday! His mom sent him a cake and we were going to make it for him but we didn't get it so sadly there was no cake. BUT we did go bowling and Sister Davidson and I went to the .99 cent store and bought him a couple things to make it good! And we had tons of fun!

Then that night Sister Davidson and I drove to Glendora for exchanges. Sister Davidson was going with Sister Ackley and Sister Butler was coming to Chino Hills with me.

Then Tuesday the 21st, the Elders asked us if we were available to do some service for someone in their ward who is moving to Utah. So we went and helped them. When we got to Sister Lamping's and the Elders knocked on the door, you should have seen her face when 8 missionaries were standing there. It looked like she was about to cry! She was so beyond thankful that we were there. She had a lot of stuff in her home! Technically she is a hoarder (she was even on the TLC series Hoarders...) But to me, it wasn't as bad as some of the houses they had on that show. And what Sister Butler and I did there was wrap pictures. We probably wrapped about 20 big pictures that day! And it was fun!! Who knew wrapping pictures would be fun! But I have to say thanks to dad for teaching me in some way or another on how to wrap breakables. They couldn't believe how good of a job we did wrapping those pictures! So thanks dad :) haha

Then that night we went to meet with Rose and we read section 138 in the Doctrine and Covenants and we talked about life after death. It was a very good lesson! And she was really interested and loved it!

Then on Wednesday the 22nd, Sister Davidson and I met up with Sister Lancaster for lunch! We just love Sister Lancaster. We always have so much fun when we go to lunch together! She is hilarious!!!! Then, after that, the Elders asked again if we could go help with packing even more stuff at Sister Lamping's home. So we did!

Not much happened on Thursday the 23rd. Except for that after District Meeting, we met up with Elder Kasteler from the mission office to look at the house that we would be living in.

Then Friday the 24th, Sister Davidson and I had to pack our own stuff up so that we could move on Saturday. So we spent all morning doing that. Then the Elders called and said that Sister Lamping wanted to take all of us out to lunch for helping her pack. So we all met at Red Robin and that was tons of fun! Then we went back to Sister Lamping's house to do some more packing (see, lots of service this week).

After dinner that night, we met Elder and Sister Kasteler at our new place for them to drop off a bed. Then we met with Rose and then waited for the Elders to come to the church. Sister Davidson was having a hard couple days and she didn't feel at first that she should ask for a blessing but after meeting with Rose, I turned to her and I asked if she felt ready for a blessing and she said yes. Elder Lindsay gave her a blessing and it was really really amazing!!! Everything that Sister Davidson and I had been talking about that day that she was struggling with, was mentioned in the blessing. And wow! The Spirit was so strong!

Then Saturday was moving day. We moved all our stuff to the front room and we were just a little worried. We asked the Elders to come and help us so that we weren't taking too many trips back to the house and they asked if they needed to go get the mission truck from Arcadia, but we said no. They walked in and laughed and said, "I thought you didn't need the truck?!" But, we didn't! We got it all in our cars! We were so proud ;) So we went to our new home and dropped everything off and then unpacked and got situated. Then we went back to Diamond Bar and did some more service because the truck to move Sister Lamping's stuff was coming today and there was still so much that needed to be done! I think the best part about helping at Sister Lamping's is that her daughter has a friend who is not a member and we got to talk to her a ton! And we got to talk to her a lot about a ton of different things that we believe. The Elders have been working with her and her boyfriend so it was just nice to talk to her a little too. And we had so much fun! She is hilarious!!!!

Not much happened yesterday (Sunday the 26th). Except for that all of church was just amazing!!! The Spirit was so strong throughout all three meetings! Especially Relief Society! We had a lesson on the talk given by Elder Russel M. Nelson from the April 2012 General Conference called "Thanks Be to God." And it was an amazing lesson!!! The second Sister Scoll said which talk she was teaching from, I just got this overwhelming feeling of gratitude for all my blessings! I started thinking about the small things and the big things. I just wanted to cry because I felt so blessed! It is amazing! And she had each of us write one thing on a note card what we are thankful for and then she handed them out to us so that we all received a different one. And everything that people mentioned, I just thought of all the reasons why I'm thankful for each thing they said, from education to modern technology to music to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was realizing how much I really am grateful for things. I've just been truly blessed in my life! There is so much that I have been given and I know that I have and continue to not thank Heavenly Father for things but I'm trying to improve each and every day. I have grown so much on my mission, realizing not only the big things, but the small things as well.

Well, that's about all that happened this week. Not a lot happened but it was good! It was a very enjoyable week. But it was also very long! So I'm glad that Monday is here and we had a day to relax a little. I hope that things are going well back in good ol' Utah! Mom, Sister Davidson and I were surprised to open those pictures of you and her family haha That's pretty dang cool!

Well, time to go write to President Becerra, so I better run! Love you all! Thanks for all the prayers! I really can feel them!

Until next week...
Love Sister Rachel

An RC Willey's Box for a House???

Good afternoon!!!! Today has been a wonderful day so far!! We haven't done much yet but I got three letters written and laundry all done, washed the car, cleaned my room, and relaxed a little!! So this Pday has started off as a nice one! And to start off, I just want to say thank you to Bekkah and Jen for sending me the package!!! I was craving Oreos like none other the last couple weeks! So that was awesome! Then I shared the treats with the Elders and we got a text from them on Saturday that said, "This candy is AWESOME!!!!" So they really were enjoying it! haha So thanks tons! And thanks to Emily Sabins for your letter!

Well, to let you know how my week went, it started off not so good. I was still struggling with all that happened last weekend and last Monday I finally figured out what was wrong!!! During Companionship study last Monday the 13th, Sister Davidson and I were talking and we both stayed quiet at one point for about five minutes. And during that time, I think I finally figured out what it was that was holding me back. So I wrote this down,

"Why can't I get out of this slump? Am I going to have so much success that Satan's working on me extra hard?

I don't want to be depressed but I can't seem to get out of it. How can I be happy? How can I not let Satan have

a hold of me? When will I be happy again? When will I have faith again? I need to cut the strings that he has a

hold of because he's pulling the ones that make me want to give up. I CAN'T give up!!! I have power over Satan!!!!"

I know that sounds super depressing but that's how I was feeling. I just couldn't understand it! It was bothering me so much that I was feeling this way. I'm not one to give up on something that I know I'm supposed to be doing but it was just really hard. And when I realized what was happening, I had to stop it! Satan doesn't want this work to move forward. And he knows what strings to pull on people. And it was hurting me! But the rest of the day I went on doing the normal Pday stuff that we do and we had fun! But at the same time, there was still something bothering me. (More on  that in a minute...)

Then that night when we got home, we got a phone call from Mama J. We were very excited to talk to her! But the reason she was calling us wasn't very exciting....She told us that she's coming home in two weeks but that she has to have someone there with her 24/7 because she's still not able to do things on her own. And that the nurse that would be living with her would have to take our room. Which means we have to move out :( We were so bummed!! And so was Mama J. But, to help Mama get better, we know that it's the thing that has to be done. So we have til the end of the month to find a house to live in. (Hence the title of this email haha)

Then on Tuesday the 14th, I was feeling better about things but I was still not totally better. So I texted the Zone Leaders to ask if I could get a blessing. I've had a couple blessings so far on my mission but I just felt like I needed one more to help me! So we all met at the church and I received a blessing! Before the blessing, Elder McKee asked me what was wrong and he talked for a couple minutes to help me figure things out. Then he gave me a blessing. It was an amazing blessing! All the blessings I have received have been amazing but this one was extra amazing! After the blessing, I felt 100x better than I ever have! It was so amazing! I couldn't believe it! And I haven't had a bad day since! I know that Heavenly Father has blessed me this week! It's been amazing to see the difference from before the blessing and after. I'm happier. I feel like I can feel the Spirit more. I can see miracles happening. It's just been amazing!!!

Also that day, eight of us missionaires in the stake got together and got our pictures taken by the PR guy in the stake because we are putting an article/flier in the newspaper for church tours. Every Saturday from 10am-2pm we are going to have tours for anyone that is interested in finding out what the inside of a Mormon church looks like and for anyone that is interested to know a little more about what we as members of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believe. So that's pretty exciting! At first they were just going to have Sister Davidson and I in the pictures but we didn't feel good about having just us in them so we got eight of us together and we felt much better about that. So it will be cool! And hopefully we will have people that want to come and learn more!

Then on Wednesday the 15th, Sister Davidson and I did a lot of walking that day. And while we were in this one apartment complex, this car comes up to us and says that they lost their Yorkie dog and they were wondering if we have seen her. Well, we told them that we'd look for her and wanted to know what to do if we found her. So they told us what apartment they lived in and we were off! Sister Davidson turned to me, "Sister Wheatley!!! We are going to find this dog!!!" So we said a quick prayer and we were off! We walked for only a couple seconds and I stopped because I heard the dingaling of dog tags! So we turned and there was this cute dog running straight towards us!! It was awesome! So we picked her up (she was much bigger and heavier than any Yorkie I've ever seen... And she didn't smell very good either...) and we walked to the lady's apartment and sat there and waited for her. And about five minutes later, she comes around the corner and she sees us there with Lily (the dog) and she starts to cry! It was so cute! We were just happy that we were able to tell her that it was through prayer that we were able to find her dog! They thought that was pretty cool :) So we talked to them for a couple minutes about who we are and we gave them a tour flier and we are going to go back to her house this week. We know that it was a small miracle but it was a miracle! We love small, big, funny, weird miracles! Because it doesn't matter how they come, but they come.

Then my highlight of the week haha was Thursday! On Wednesday night I was able to make chicken and rice to get ready to make my Chicken Enchiladas for District Meeting the next morning. I was so happy to be making them! I miss cooking! I don't get a lot of time to cook but when I do, I love it!! I just felt right at home making us lunch! And then after DM on Thursday, we all enjoyed a free meal... Well, the Elders enjoyed a free meal LOL Plus, I made mom's Corn Bread that you sent me and they loved that as well. It was just nice to be able to cook for people again. I have really missed it!

Then on Saturday, we started the church tours. Sadly no one came this week but we know that as soon as it gets in the paper and we hand out more fliers, we will get more people to come. We just felt so strongly like these tours need to happen so I know there's a reason for that!

Also that night, we went and saw dear Cherryl! We haven't seen her in about a month so it's been sad for us. But she was in town for the weekend to get some things for her new job and so we stopped by and saw her! As we were talking to her, we mentioned that we were needing to find a place to live and she said, "You can come live here!!" She's out of town a lot for her new job and so it was perfect. Plus when she is in town, she was happy that we can be living with her! We have grown to love Cherryl! She told us that we've made a big difference in her life and it goes the same for her to us. She's incredible! So, we called President Gutierrez that night and told him, he called Cherryl and before she left on Sunday he went over to meet her and look at the house to see if it was ok for us to live there. We called President Gutierrez after church and he said it would be the most perfect place for us to live! It was amazing!!! We are so danged excited!!!!!!!! And so is Cherryl!! It will be good for all of us! So we do not have to live in an RCWilley's box. But we did tell Brother and Sister Jones in the ward to get ready to get us one just in case we couldn't find a place to live LOL :) So all is well!!

Then yesterday after church, it was just a wonderful day! We were able to have four member lessons which was awesome (we are working with the members a lot in this area) and we were able to talk with two potential investigators for 45 minutes! It was just a very good Sunday!

As you can see, after my blessing, things are really looking up. Both Sister Davidson and I have been struggling lately but we were both able to work these small things out and now we feel much better! I know that good things are happening in this area! We are working hard and following the Spirit! We all have rough times in our lives (like mom said in her email this morning) but we just have to keep going. We can't give up! No matter how hard it gets! We have to remember, whatever happens in life, there is one man who knows how we feel, and that's our savior Jesus Christ! We can always rely on Him. He's there for us whenever we need Him. And I've come to be extremely thankful for that! I've needed Him so much in my life, especially the last few months, and He's always been there for me!

Well, I didn't see any birthdays on my calendar this week but if I'm wrong, sorry and Happy Birthday to whoever is reading this email and it's their birthday LOL

Alright, I gotta run... We're going bowling again! Talk to you all next week! Love you all!

Sister Rachel Wheatley :) :) :)

Tuesday, August 14, 2012


Sorry I didn't get this out to you last night like I thought I'd be able to. We had a dinner appointment and by the time we got done with that and got back to the library, there was only 30 minutes til it closed and they won't let you on the computers with less than an hour left.

Well, this last week was a very hard but good week. A lot happened. I'm going to leave it up to mom to decide if she wants to put this whole letter for everyone to see but I'm just going to tell it as it is. I know that sometimes people may sugar coat things but because of the week I had, I'm not going hold back in this email.

On Tuesday the 7th, Sister Davidson had a Zone Council meeting so I went and spent the day with Sister Carrell in Walnut. I've spent a day with her last month so I was excited! We worked in her area and had a very successful day. We went to a Recent Convert's girlfriend's home, Lisa and Ivan, to have one of Ivan's after-baptism lessons. It was a very good lesson! We started out teaching Ivan but in the end we taught them both. And the Spirit was super strong! We didn't really have a plan when we went in there but both Sister Carrell and I knew before we went in there that it was going to be a good lesson. We talked a lot about missions and families. Both Ivan and Lisa want to serve missions but there's something holding them back. Since Ivan just joined the church, he has to wait a year and that made him happy. He didn't feel like he was ready right now. But when we told him he's have to wait, he got this peaceful feeling that he would be ok in a year from now. And for Lisa, she's being held back because she doesn't want to leave her family. Her family has had some major struggles in their lives and she's the one that is always there when her siblings or parents need her. Well, to make a long lesson short, both Sister Carrell and I were able to use personal experiences to help them both. It was really amazing! The Spirit is real! I'm so thankful for being able to teach by the Spirit. I don't know what will happen, but I know that the Spirit was there and that if Ivan and Lisa continue to follow that Spirit, things will work out for them!

Also on the 7th, that was my FIVE month mark! Can you believe that I've been on my mission for FIVE months now?!?! Wasn't it just yesterday that I entered the MTC??? It's going by so fast!

Then while we were asleep that night, there was another EARTHQUAKE!! I woke up to it and I was so scared! It was a 4.4 earthquake. I was so worried that there would be an after shock and that it wasn't going to be good. But luckily we were safe.

On Wednesday the 8th we had an all Sisters Conference. It was amazing!!! We got all 22 Sister missionaries together and just had a very good day! It was nice because President Becerra had each of the Sister Trainers get up and talk. There are four of them and each of them talked on a different subject but they all ran together very well. They talked a lot about being too hard on ourselves, not having enough confidence, being too comfortable, and not having enough faith. It was amazing how these small things really did help each of us Sisters. There was so much said that I feel was exactly for me. Then Sister Becerra got up and talked about not being afraid and how we are all now "part of the club - the Sister Missionary club." She asked us what blessings we have received from being on our missions and how the Lord will not permit us to fail as long as we do our part. Then President Becerra got up and talked about us being double-minded missionaries and how we can't be that. We need to focus on our missions. Nothing else. Then he talked about being over-whelmed and how we need to face our problems and our fears. We need to go against our problems and we will succeed. He also talked about how our greatest strengths can be our greatest weaknesses. There was a lot more that was said that day that really needed to be heard. I'm so thankful for Heavenly Father for having President Becerra put this Sisters Meeting together.

On Thursday the 9th we had a Zone Meeting. We usually have District Meetings every Thursday but President Becerra now wants us to have Zone Meetings once a month. It was a very good meeting! Once again, there was a lot said that I needed to hear. It was a lot of the same things that I heard the day before in Sisters Meeting but it's always nice to hear things again, especially with different view points.

Then that night we went to the park to do some contacting and we met Lucy, We asked her how she was doing and then she just let it all out. She's super nice and we had an hour long conversation. Her Bible study got cancelled that day so it was nice that we were able to be her Bible study. We found out that her mom is meeting with the Elders in her area so that was funny because she said, "My mom's meeting with the guys on the bikes." haha I just love that that's how the Elders are identified. Well, we had a very long conversation with her and it's just amazing how the Lord puts us in the right places at the right times. Even when I didn't really feel like going to the park. I didn't feel like it was worth our time but Sister Davidson kept pushing for it and in the end I'm glad she did.

Then on Friday the 10th, that was a very emotional day for me. At the end of our weekly planning each week we have what is called Companionship Inventory. That's where we tell things we like about the other, what we can improve on as a companionship and as individuals and things like that. Well, Sister Davidson started and she was telling me all these things she liked about me. But at one point she mentioned something, I can't remember exactly what it was, but it had been something I was struggling with this week. So I just let it out, I started to cry. There was something built up inside me for a long time that I didn't even know was there. All of a sudden I realized that I didn't have all this confidence that Sister Davidson thought I had, or that a lot of people thought I had. So we talked for a long time about it and Sister Davidson really helped me to gain a little confidence in myself. I've come to realize that I'm struggling with teaching lessons, not sure if I'm following the Spirit or my own wants and things like that. It was just a very hard thing for me to realize. I try to put on this happy face but really, I'm struggling.

Well, there's a lot more to that Comp. Inventory but I'll write about that later because it happened on other days as well. On Saturday the 11th, we went and helped out with an Eagle Scout project for someone in the ward's troop. We helped plant fruit trees at a local company place where it's open for the public to just come and learn all these educational things. And that was cool. Jonathan isn't a member of the church but it's cool to see how much he loves going to scouts with the boys in out ward and how much support he has from the ward.

Then we went home to clean up after that and Mama J was there! She was there only for a little time because she and a couple other people were getting things ready for her to come home in a couple weeks! YAY!! We were so excited to hear that!

Then during our Companionship Study that morning, we had another Comp. Inventory session. This time it was for both Sister Davidson and I. We both are struggling. We don't really know why but we are. It's hard! We are trying so hard to be good missionaries, to be exactly obedient, and to follow the Spirit but we don't feel like we having any success. I have learned a lot about myself this last week. There were things that I was holding inside me that I didn't even know I needed to let out. I'm so thankful to my Father in Heaven for giving me a companion that is intune with the Spirit that she knows when I need to talk. She knows exactly what to say and how to help me. (There are other things that I learned yesterday but I will share that next week since I'm running out of time to write now...)

So as you can see, it wasn't really the BEST week ever but in some ways it was. We may not have had success finding people who want to hear about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, but we found in ourselves, I really found in myself, a new light. Who knew I would be having confidence problems? Who knew that one little thing said would help me to get what I was holding inside, out? Heavenly Father did and I'm thankful for that! I don't know how much longer I could have gone on holding these things in. Would I have given up? Would I have had a melt down? I don't know, but what I do know is that Heavenly Father is real. He's listening to us! We may not think He is at times but He is! I've come to realize that this week. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. He wants me to be happy. He wants me to have a good mission. He wants me to be successful in whatever I do in life. He's real! If I didn't know that, I don't know if I would be here on my mission right now.

Well, that's about all the time I have for now. We have to go have lunch and then get going with the day. This last week was hard, but I'm thankful for that! Blessings are trials, and trials are blessings!

Love you all!

-Sister Rachel Anna Wheatley

PS - Happy Birthday to Natalia Hernandez tomorrow, thanks for letters this week from Sister Gren and Emily Sabins, and good luck to Aaron, or should I say Elder Wheatley, as he prepares to enter the MTC tomorrow! Love you Aaron! You'll do amazing things in Peru!

Great Harvest Bread and Stephen's Fry Sauce...Utah is being distributed to Cali!!!

Ok, the reason I put that as my subject line/title of this letter is because the Williams family went to Utah (and not just Utah but PROVO this past week) and Sister Davidson and I were really craving some Great Harvest Bread and they brought us back some! And it was delicious!!! I wish that Great Harvest was out here in Cali. Except for that I'd be very broke if they were here.... So maybe it's a good thing! And also, today while shopping we saw that Stephen's Hot Cocoa has made up Fry Sauce and is sending it country wide! Pretty cool if you like Fry Sauce! So it was good to have a little bit of home out here in good ol' California!

Ok, here's what happened this week!....

On Tuesday the 31st Sister Davidson and I both felt like we should put together an ad for the local newspaper for church tours! We figure that with the elections coming up, it might be nice if people really understood what we as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints really believe. So we are going to try and get it in the newspaper sometime this week and start tours! We are very excited! And it's a good way to find people that are truly wanting more in their lives. So it will be wonderful!

That night we went over to Brother and Sister Wilson's because Brother Wilson really wanted to help us with our Family History. He's so cute about it! haha Sister Davidson started with hers first and she found some cool stuff and information. Then we came to mine. I found out that somehow I've been doing family history work while on my mission without even knowing it! haha I'm guessing mom was logged into mine instead of hers...??? I was really funny and we laughed about it! The excitement of Brother Wilson doing all this has really got me thinking that when I get home I should probably start doing some family history! I know, shocker right?? Me? Doing family history? The world must be ending! LOL :)

Then on Wednesday the 1st (I can't believe it's August already!!!) we helped the Elders AGAIN go clean the house they have been staying at. The owner's son called the ZL's on Tuesday night and told them that they needed to come back and take everything out and do something with it. So we all went  up on Wednesday and just threw things away. There were so many trash bags! It wasn't really worth going through and keeping things. We filled up a whole bag of a truck with trash! It was nasty! 10 years of Elders living at this home is not a fun thing to clean up after. But I will say this, it could have been worse! haha

On Thursday the 2nd we had our first District Meeting as a new district! It was pretty good! I learned a lot and there are things that I need to work on. I never knew that each week I could learn so much and work on things but then go back the next week and learn even more and work on things even more! But it's actually kind of fun! I have learned so much about the gospel and about myself. I'm sure there are things I would have never learned had I not chosen to go on a mission! It's amazing!

Also that day, we had a lot of success with going to see former potentials and investigators! Since we started the 40-day fast in the ward, things have been working out so well! We have very many miracles that are happening. Some are big and some are small but they are still miracles!

Then on Saturday the 4th, ROSE WAS BAPTIZED!!!!! It has been a long time coming but it finally happened! She's been investigating for about 7 or 8 years now and it was just a wonderful day! There weren't many people there (only six Elders, the ward mission leader, Brother Gordon who's in the bishopric, his family, President Gutierrez, and an investigator for one of the sets of Elders.) Rose is a very shy person so she didn't want to make a big thing over it. But none-the-less, the Spirit was there and it was wonderful! It was a very good day!

That night we went to dinner at the Brock's and while at dinner, Brother Brock brought out a big birthday bag that was flat and gave it to Sister Davidson. It was her birthday yesterday (Sunday) and in the bag there was a riddle that had to do with things in the scriptures and when she figured it out, she got her birthday present (BTW, Dad. This is something I would see you doing haha I had to smile) So when she read scriptures and figured it out, her birthday present was to go pick apples off their tree. Sister Davidson LOVES apples and she was so excited! She was like a kid in a candy store!

Then yesterday (Sunday the 5th), Sister Davidson was having the best birthday ever. The Elders had us all write a little something to her and then they went out and bought her a sketch pad and colored pencils and made a card for her. Then everyone at church kept wishing her a happy birthday. She was just so happy! It was a good day!

The funny thing that happened yesterday was when President Gutierrez called us but we didn't pick up. Then he text us and said, "Call me, it's urgent." We freaked out! We didn't have a reason to freak out but we were scared! But once we got on the phone with him he asked, "Where are you Sisters bathing???" We started to laugh!!!!!!!!! He found out that we had bathed in the pool for two days and he was worried! I can't remember if I wrote this in one of my emails but the reason we bathed in the pool for a couple days is because our water was turned off. But it turns out that Sister Davidson accidently turned off the water! She went to turn off the hose but it wasn't turning off so she saw another handle and turned that off. I had no clue she had done that and she didn't realize what handle she had turned off. So we had to clean up in the pool! He was so concerned! It was hilarious! But we all just ended up laughing and it was good! It was a very interesting experience to bathe in a pool. It's something I never want to do again....

Well, this is a very short email but that's because not a lot happened this week. But it was a good week with all that did happen! We were sad because Sabrina didn't come to church yesterday but it's ok because she's actually in Utah!! haha If she can't come to church, I guess Utah is the second best place to be LOL She said that she was going to try and go to church while in Utah (which probably wasn't a problem because there's a church on every corner LOL) She was so excited to go to Utah! She was looking forward to going to Temple Square too! So that was exciting to hear! She is just loving coming to church and it makes me happy that she loves it!

Well, I just want to wish Josh Wheatley on the 4th, Grandpa Wheatley on the 8th and Mom on the 12th Happy Birthdays!!!! And thanks to Sam, Bekkah and Dad for letters this week!!!!

I gotta run and send a letter to President Becerra now! Love you all!
