Tie Burning and Other Such Things

Thank you so much for all you do. I loved that scripture so much and I enjoy looking forward to what you guys learn from the scripture that I sent you. I have some bad news my camera is starting to have some problems and doesn't work all the time. I am now saving up for a new one so I hope to replace it soon. It works right now but at times it doesn't like listening to me. Don't worry about the package so much I just wanted to make sure it didn't get lost or stolen.  I love you so much. OH hey I have had a about 4 baptisms in the last 2 weeks and have some pictures from that along with some pictures from my 6 month tie burning. I have been able to go to the Brigham City Temple open house with some families and it has been a blast. I am working on getting some pics of the temple. Thing are cool here I love it in Brigham so much. At one of our recent baptisms our mission president baptized the people. He had to interview them and she could choose between me or my companion and so she asked if our mission pres could do it because she couldn't choose between us.

And Then There Was One More!

(Elder Felton's reply to my quick email)

Ha ha! The first thing I told my companion was that you sent an email calling me out for not sending one. I love you so much and want you to know that I am sending a letter to you and to Emma. Don't think I was trying to be mean. I was giving you a hard time because I never get to anymore. I love you and I promise a lot of details in the letters.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry! Here is why your email didn't happen...
You knew Emma was with her dad this last week. Well Emma was supposed to fly back to Dallas with your aunt Stephanie and her kids. They were in the Portland Airport for TWO DAYS an no flights! Then they drove to Seattle Washington to try to get a flight home where They stayed for another 20 hrs. There were a lot of tears and Emma ended up flying home on Delta (thanks to granna and grandpa) and just got home at 9:30am Evansville time after a horrid almost 80 hours!
You are NOT forgotten, BUT you were re-prioritized for the last few days. Sorry. Emma is home, safe, and VERY happy and EXTREMELY grateful! She will send you a letter.
I wasn't going to write this but I am hoping you will get the chance to check your email again later today. And I thought how awful it would be if there still wasn't SOMETHING!
Your package from me was too heavy so I am repacking it into two or three smaller ones. Maybe this will make up for today's folly!
I will have a longer email next week.



BAD Missionary Momma!!!

No emails no letters I feel like you have forgotten me

    (***To quickly sum up, Elder Felton's sister was stuck in an airport for 3 1/2 days and poor Elder Felton was shuffled to the bottom of his mom's priority list this week. Bad BAD momma!***)

Staying Put, Where's My Box?

(Note from mom: Maddie is his little cousin about 3 years old)
What Maddie has replace me?!?! I should have know that she would replace me. I hope that Emma was OK on the plane. I am sorry that she was scared. Flying has never been a difficult thing for me except for the time that one of our flights was cancelled while we were Dallas or Houston. I forget which one it was but it was the worst time I ever had. I think I even cried during that time because I did not know how I was going to get home. I hope you are able to find your puzzle pieces.
So transfers are here again and I have good news. I am staying in place and I'm staying with Elder Mitchell. It is great because we have some people that want us to go to the temple open house with them. So all is well here. We have a baptism this weekend and we are excited. The best part is that the parent that is less active is getting interested again. I was wondering about the package you said you would send. i haven't gotten it and i wanted to make sure it wasn't lost.

Six Month Milestones

Ah man you saw Mitt! That’s awesome! I hope things are going well. I’m glad that you were able to get your card. I thought that would be funny because I wouldn't be able to tell you on Facebook. Things here are going well. Right now we are teaching a lot of people. Five of those have accepted a baptismal date. It is so cool to see so many people accept Christ in there life. My companion is Elder Mitchell. He is a great guy. The people in my district are great. This has been fun serving right by the Temple. The best part is that I was able to go inside the Temple before the open house. The only things I can think of that I need are the thing that I told you about. The reason I asked for the scriptures was because granna has a lot of stuff marked in there and it would be like having a piece of her with me. I still have mine but I just thought it would be nice. The Temple is so beautiful here. I am so excited for it. One of the families we teach has gotten tickets for the open house and got some for us to go with them. This is a beautiful place here and I'm so excited to see all that the Lord has for me.
