Email Update 8/25/2014

Dear Everyone,

First off, no, there is no story behind the "getting shot" comment. There are just a lot of churches, and therefore a lot of people, around here that don't like the Mormons very much, so it was always an adventure to knock on a door and not know the reaction that you were going to get. That, and i just don't like knocking on doors. 

As for the lady who we talked to before, we were unable to contact her, unfortunately. She might not have been home when we went by, but we aren't sure. We will just have to try again this week, and hope for the best. On a slightly happier note, we had investigators at church for the first time in months yesterday!! They were a part member family, with the Dad being a less-active member, the girlfriend being a nonmember, and one of the boys being an over aged youth (he was 11). According to the Relief Society President, the girlfriend (whose name is escaping me entirely right now) went to all three meetings, and seemed to enjoy all of them. She also was reportedly there last week, and we just didn't see her, so i'm pretty excited. According to Patrick (the dad), she is a Southern Baptist, so don't expect a convert, but she is willing to sit down and hear the discussions, which is good enough for me, seeing as that seems to be as hard to find around here as twenty dollars lying in the street. Patrick's son is also excited to start the discussions, and seems excited to be baptized, so things are looking pretty promising right now.

Well, that's really all of the exciting stuff that is happening right now, along with the fact that Brother Marshall, te member that we are living with is currently out of town in Georgia, leaving the house to us.

I'm still not sure if that was a good idea or not.

Love and Insanity,
Elder Stuver
