Hmmm, that new hairdo on you sounds quite awesome. I know that Emilio will have fun in High School. He's a pretty outgoing kid. I did get the package. I am just waiting until my actual birthday to actually use the decorations. Thanks for the advice for the breakouts. I haven't gotten to the point that I am constantly hating my face. I am trying less and less to mess with it. But, it still haunts me, just the appearance. But, I am getting better at it.
Yes, I still am emailing Tori, she's tearing it up out there. She works really hard. I have been trying to find a mail place to send her a letter. She sent me a few. I saw that she still wears the necklace I gave her. That makes me feel great!
With respect to my personal conversion. I have been working on myself at being better. I have been trying to apply the doctrine more and more in my life. It is hard, but it is rewarding. We have been trying to put baptismal dates on the calendar. When we explain the Book of Mormon, and how reading it will help them decide, they usually commit to read or commit to baptize. Really it all depends on us being unified. We are really working hard on that lately. I am being more obedient, and have today, expressed some deep feelings and fears that I have been dealing with. So we'll see how we go from there. I have committed to do this work. It is hard, but I said I would work hard when I accepted my call. Love you all.
