Companion: Elder Wells
Geesh Mom and Dad! Was my convincing not good enough to get a puppy before I left? Well at least she will be there when I get home. I love the name and she is so stinking cute! Dad, I know that one was all on you. ;-)

I'm writing you today because I won't have time to do it before I leave. Well I forgot my notebook with what I had written in it to write you so I will do my best to remember.
"Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you, my friends Sidney and Joseph, your families are well; they are in mine hands, and I will do with them as seemeth me good; for in me there is all power."
This scripture was talking about Joseph Smith and David Whitmer I believe while on one of their journeys. They were very concerned about their families since they were away from them for awhile. But what really stood out to me was how it said that with God on their side, their families would be safe. I read that scripture several times and I was just fine after that.
That about all I have to say!
PS: I might be able to send some pictures today sometime depending on if I can find someone with a card reader!
