Dear Familie,

It was really fun to talk to you on Christmas, and the rest of Christmas went really well, too.

After that, the week was kind of average until Friday, when we had district meeting. One of the first things that our District leader mentioned was about our Key Indicators, specifically what we needed to have in a lesson, which includes at least teaching at least two principles, and saying a prayer. Elder Myers and i decided that we would make sure to do that, and i have to say, we have had some of the best few days that we have had all of the time that we have spent together. I personally have felt the Spirit more strongly, and for a longer stretch of time, than at any time in my life, with the possible exception of the MTC.

That first day after we were given that assignment, we were able to visit 7 families, all of which included at least two principles and a prayer. One of those was an older man named Ron, who we've been talking to for a little bit now, and who has been investigating for about a month now, we were able to teach the first two lessons, and commit him to read Moroni 10. Along with that, he committed to pray to know if it was true, and that, if he did learn that it was true, he would be willing to be baptized. We did try to set a specific date with him, but he felt that he wasn't ready, and even though we tried to convince him that he could work towards it, he was pretty firm in waiting for now.

Things have been working along that same line since then. We had a really good lesson with some members of First Ward, named Carol and Eric (not related) and a bunch of lessons in second ward. Along with Church, that was really our week.

Could I get Casey's address again? I seem to have lost the box with the address on it. 

Thank you and love you all again!

Elder Stuver
