Email Update: 10/7/2013

Dear Everyone,

This week has been pretty cool. We went on exchanges with our zone leader and his trainee on Tuesday, and Zone Leader Sterling Rodgers came with me in New Plymouth. It was a pretty normal day, visiting a part member (wife is a member and her husband is not) family, a couple named the Marshalls, and then we went tracking, for the first time that i had gone in New Plymouth. We knocked on a couple of doors, and nothing really happened, until the third door. We knocked and a probably 28-30 year-old woman answered. Elder Rodgers asked if we could share a message, and she said sure, so we taught the first lesson, The Message of the Restoration. I've never seen anyone so glued to what we were saying; even her 7 and 5-year old were paying attention. The Spirit was super strong, and we were able to set up a following appointment for this Wednesday. She seems like she is really interested, and i feel like she will do well as we teach..

Conference was really awesome, and like always, President Uchdorf's talk in the Saturday morning session was my favorite. my favorite quote was "doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith." There was a lot on missionary work in this conference, so i hope people will listen and give us a hand out here... ;)\

John and Sandy, the nonmember who gave me the quad, got to go the Sunday morning session of general conference, so i hope that he was able to be touched by the Spirit; i know that i was.

Well, that about sums it up. Thank you for the emails, and i hope that your lives smooth out. I love you!

Elder Stuver
