Okay........... So I had a whole email typed out.... then I pressed something weird on the keyboard, and it erased my whole email! It went back to the previous page and I lost it all.... so I am sorry but this will just be a summary of what it was about!
Alana is set for baptism this Sunday at 5 pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY! First baptism! wooooo! I'm so stoked and so happy for her (: Her mother and the ward have been waiting for this day for a long time now! She is so ready and so solid (: Thank you for all your prayers! We are going to work with her to see who she wants to give talks, etc.
The Mission Leadership Conference was amazing! 4 stake presidents were there along with the area 70, Elder Garnes. it was soooo good! I felt the spirit so very strongly throughout the whole thing! I know that this work and this Gospel is true! I guess this best thing I learned from it was to smile more (: It is the easiest way to bring the spirit and drive temptation away. It shows a quiet dignity.
Elder ----- is doing good. I feel like I have figured out why he seems to be some what "hard hearted" some times... Basically, he is holding a grudge against someone he got into a car accident with in 2012. I feel like he would understand the Atonement more if he found it in his heart to forgive this person. I don't have time to go into it more, but I continue to pray for him that he may soften his heart and let the Savior's love flow through him. I'm sure he will forgive the kid sooner or later, and I guess it is all in the Lord's time.
Yeah, sorry I would write more but I have negative 14 minutes! I love and miss you so much! (: I will be sending a letter home for everybody! Have a great week!
Elder Teeples (:

This puppy fell asleep right on my lap.... I might have shed a tear from it's cuteness (':
