Hey ya'll!
Been a real crazy week this week!! lots of down time trying to get healed! but it soon shall pass! :) This week there were lots of events that happened Temple Youth Cultural Celebration, Temple dedication, ect, ect.
The last two days have been super busy!! On saturday we got word from President and Sister Walker that we were allowed to go to both the temple dedication and the Youth Cultural Celebration. They were both awesome. Yesterday we went to the temple dedication at the stake center, TWICE!! yeah that's right! It was a way awesome experience and a testimony booster for sure!!! All is well in AZ this week!! ooh by the way it cooled down today!! ha it's about 75 for the low today! :) yee haw finally!!!! well there's lots going on and gotta get running but want to quick share an experience first: yesterday we were out and about trying to contact a few referrals, one lady we visited had had missionaries before and was not interested at all! but we went to contact another refferral and they weren't home, but on the way back to the care Elder Kane and I both felt as if to contact this Native American family. pretty nice family! the mom and the daughter were there, not members but the father is and wanted to get the children back to church and eventually if they wanted baptised! well there are 7 in the family 6 of which are eligible for baptism! hopefully soon something will come of it! :) well gotta run!
Love you all,
Elder Karlson :)

Well it's been a pretty rough week this week! lots of pain from the car wreck! well as for how it happened
April 7th, 2010
My companion and I had just exchanged with the District leaders for the evening and the next day! I had to drive because the other passenger in the car had been red Flagged and unable to drive!
it was about 2 mins after we had exchanged I was getting ready to turn onto the freeway to go to the district leaders apartment. there was a car in front of me that had stopped to turn left I was stopped behind it right under a light pole. as i was waiting for the car in front of me to turn left I looked in my rear view mirror and to my suprise was a red Ford Focus coming through my back bumper at 30 mph.
It was pretty freaky! messed up the car pretty good, but all in all we are alive!
As for my companion! He's way awesome! and as you may have never thought he hates making decisions too! so the two of us are taking turns at it now!! he's been driving alot lately because I can't! I've been on some pretty heavy medications and can't drive, but I do have to say I probably could drive better than most of the people here in Tucson and I'm on pain killers! enough said about traffic! well I'm starting to feel better! I will be starting Physical therapy tomorrow for the next few weeks and then go in for another xray to make sure My vertebrate isn't cracked! but all in all! everything Is amazing! We will be having a baptism on May 15th, 22, and 29th! Kyle and Stevie Gerratt should be here for that on on the 29th! :) found that out after meeting with Alissa, the one being baptized, today.
The mission president is way cool!! :) very involved in what we do and how we feel! we've had many interviews as he likes to talk with us about every 3-6 weeks! :) lots of fun!

As for the call on mothers day!
It is looking like it will be at about 4-5 p.m. ish my time we don't get out of church til 3:30-4 depending if we have other meetings! I will probably be calling you via VCO Sorenson meaning I will voice and the interpreter will sign what you are saying if not Elder Kane will interpret for me and it will be on a normal phone!

Everything is great here in Tucson! what do you mean by the Immigration bill? haven't heard about it! any how! got to go! :)
Lots of Love
Elder Karlson :)
