2013 Here We Come

December 31st, 2012

Dear family,

           We had a baptism this past Saturday of 2 young women, Haley Gordon and Alex Dunmore, whose mom is a member and their siblings are recent convert.  The Dunmore family only has the dad left and the oldest daughter to be baptized and then they will be able to go to the temple to be sealed.  The oldest daughter wants to get baptized but she needs to get married and they have plans to do that very soon so she will be baptized with her husband shortly.  They have the cutest little boy haha.  The dad is coming along but he is on dialysis for his kidneys so it is super hard for him to even be taught cause he is in bed groaning from pain.  We gave him a blessing and it has been a little better but he has been in and out of the hospital this past week.  He will be baptized soon but we just have to be patient with him.  He has come to church and wants to but the dialysis holds him back.

             This week we have a leadership meeting to set our year goal for 2013 for the mission and the meeting will consist of us and President, the coordinating sisters, the zone leaders and the district leaders.   It will be a really good meeting and I am excited to see what our new goal will be.  Then the next day we will have a trainer/trainee meeting to do a half-way-through-the-transfer check up on them and see how things are going and if they have concerns and do some training.  I will be doing training on the importance of getting our investigators to say a kneeling prayer at the end of each lesson.  It will be great.  Then we will have a leadership planning session on Thursday probably in which President and my companion and I will plan out for the next 2 or 3 transfers who will tentatively be a leader.

              So things are going well and I miss you all and love you.  I am so glad that we got to hear all your voices and grandma no se preocupe for not being there for the call.  That means don't worry about missing the call and I love you and will talk to you soon enough.  I hope you all are doing well and I am glad that you are going to profiles.  Keep being missionaries and keep working hard to keep your standards and covenants cause there is nothing more important.  I love you!!!!!!!!!!

-Love Elder Neeley
