Email Update: 10/27/2014-- Transferred to District Leader

Dear Everyone,

Well, it seems like life is pretty fun for you guys right now. As for the picture, you're welcome. Oh, and "Hi, everyone!"

Life has been a little crazy for me as well, due to one significant change: I have been transferred. This transfer should be an even more interesting one than usual, because even though i've been moved, it's not really a new experience. You see, i have been sent to serve in the Fruitland Idaho area---in the same ward that i served in back in New Plymouth times. Driving through the "new" area has been like a giant shot of deja vu, and apparently (according to my new companion, Elder Riley), a lot of the people here who knew me, still remember me. So, it should be cool to get to see everyone again. I will say this though; i am sad to leave Elder Richie. It's been a great few transfers with him, and we did well together. But, i guess it's time for a change.

Speaking of change, I guess there is one thing that will be new to the area. They made me a District Leader---over a district of only Sister missionaries. That particular change wasn't expected (nor really desired), but i don't think that i have a lot to say on the matter, so might as well make the best of it. My first district meeting will be tomorrow, where we get to see just how crazy things can get when i'm "in charge." To be honest, i'd thought that i had dodged that bullet. It's already been a year and 3 months, and everyone else in my group had already been made leadership, within just a few transfers. With that in mind, i thought that i had flown low enough under the radar, that i wouldn't have to be a leader. Since the first transfer, i haven't really wanted to be one, and was glad that i had been "missed." Just goes to show that, once again, i'm not in charge of all of this. 

On the good side of things, the area looks like it's going crazy. The board the missionaries use to record people is almost full of people to go see, including 12 investigators, and 6 very recent converts. The best part is that the list was up to date, and kept track of, so that means these are the people they have actually been teaching. So, in terms of the work, i think that this next transfer is going to be an exciting one.

Either that, or i'm going to come in, and everyone will disappear. One of the two.

Well, i think that is pretty much it for this letter. Thank you for everything that you all do, and for all of the stories.

Love and Insanity,
Elder Stuver
