Email Update 8/18/2014--sorry for last week

Dear Everyone,

First off, sorry for last week, events conspired to never let me get to the family history center, so i was unable to write. It felt super weird. So, again, sorry.

Everything is fine, setting aside the fact that there doesn't seem to be much in the way of work, so we spent almost all of the last 2 weeks tracting. Not the most fun; half of the time we were worried about getting shot. Luckily, that doesn't happen too often in Idaho, so we are both just fine. Just a little nerve wracking. However, we were able to hit our goal for lessons taught for the first time in months; in fact, it was the first time since i have been in this area! I was pretty nice, even though most of those lessons weren't the most well received. We were able to find a lady who is a member, but seems to go to Boise for church rather than the ward that she is located in, so we set up an appointment to see if we can gather how active she is. She seems fine with us coming by, and even though her kids were shy, they seemed ok with us, so i have high hopes for how the lesson will go well. 

That's about the most exciting thing that happened  in the past two weeks. We also got to work a little bit with a missionary who just got back from Peru, Colby, and his non-member friend Jamie for a little yesterday. It's always interesting to for me to hear the stories that RM's will tell once they are actually home that they never tell while they are out. There were a couple that were pretty gnarly, reminding me why i am glad that i was called to Idaho, and the food conversation was certainly chuckle worthy; apparently, some of the female persuasion get upset when an RM says that one of his favorite foods on his mission was grilled Guinea Pig.

Well, that is just about it for this email. Hope that you are all having a good life!

Love and Insanity, Elder Stuver
