I got some letters from Sister Boyd, Kelsey, Dallan, Alyssa and Sarah and it has been really nice. It's just good to know that people are thinking about you.

Star is having a really dangerous operation done soon because she has an infection in her blood stream from one of her twins dying inside of her, I'm not sure exactly what it is or whats going on, all I know is that there's like a 30-40% chance that it could be potentially fatal. She also has ovarian cancer, and she's suppose to be delivering her one baby in the coming weeks... She's not doing good. I'm really worried about her. I gave her 2 blessings this week.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Elder Flores and I have 5 baptismal dates. Most of them are for Febuary, one is for this weekend. Sister Wait, a member in the ward, has us over for dinner a lot and takes picutures, she might send ya'll some pictures today, I gave her dads email.

Dads liahona looks really legit, like "it should be in a museum because lehi's fingerprints are still on it" legit. and Sarah's flower looks really good. I can't believe she's going into highschool. that's super wierd. 

Tell steve and danielle I love them.

Please continue to keep me in your prayers...  I love you guys.

Mom and Dad,

Elder Flores and I set 3 new baptismal dates this week, and we baptized a lady named Georgia, that Elder Flores and Elder Wawro were previously working with. She's awesome, and she was super prepared, she'll make a great member. We spent some time with Star, she can go to the temple in April. can you believe that? I can't believe she's been a member that long. She just got married and were working on baptizing her husband Mario, he has a testimony, and he said he wanted me to baptize him. I love Star so much. she's really great.  

Thank you for your prayers, and your support... I love you guys so much. 

This email is gonna be short.

Love, Elder Lebaron

I'm sorry I haven't written in a couple of weeks. The past 2 P-Days were holidays and so the libraries were closed, and we had a lot of work to do during the week with Zone Meeting and Zone Leader Council and things we didn't get to it on any other day. I have been transferred back to Frayser and will be working with Elder Flores  All my recent converts and all the members were happy to see me back in frayer. It's funny, it's like I've only been in 2 different areas my entire mission. Elder Flores, has been out 4 and a half months. I like him a lot, he's super chill, and we already knew each other somewhat, so it's cool.

I love you so much...

Above is a small excerpt from a much longer e-mail, just to let you know where Justin is currently serving. As his parents we thought it would be good to let everyone know that Justin has been having some struggles the last few months with Depression (It run's in our family, so it's not any big surprise) we were hoping initially that it might have passed him by because of his somewhat laid back personality, but it has gotten progressively worse. It seems that this is the age where it is most likely to show itself, and with the added stresses of serving a mission it looks like it is the case with Justin.  

We have been in contact with his Mission president and had discussions about Justin meeting with a counselor and a psychiatrist to see if there is something that might help while he is out there. The result is that he has been diagnosed with Depression, and they have just recently put him on medication to see if that will help.  

The current plan is to give it 6 weeks to see if the medication will kick in, and if not then he will most likely come home so that he can be with family and not have the added stress associated with mission life, while we work through this.  

We want everyone to know that Justin has done and is doing everything that he can...he loves the people out there, and has worked harder than most.  The last thing that he wants right now is to come home early. 

As parents we couldn't be more proud of a son, who has really given this his all...we would like to ask for your prayers on his behalf, that the Lord's will would be done.  

Thank you so much for all that everyone has done to support Justin so far...


Rich and Randie.
