Dear Everyone,

Wow! It sounds like you all had a lot of fun this last week. I do have to be honest, though; I hope that I'll have a room to sleep in when I get home!!! ;)

Anyways, fj poirupetuofgfaspfgjqwoerjgpaosd fl qwjvpfoasjdflk j.

Yeah. I'm starting to get twitchy. 

As for what actually happened this week, it was really cool. We still had a little trouble finding people to teach, but those that we were able to were fantastic lessons. On Tuesday, I went to a different area, so that Elder Twigg go be on exchanges with the companion missionary. I was with an Elder Spindler, and we went to teach a 21 year-old named Josh and his younger sister, named Brittany. We had a really fun chat about different shows that we like, some comic books that he was scripting, and a lot of other things. Then, we had one of the best first lessons that I have ever been a part of teaching. We were even able top set a baptismal date in that same lesson. All he is waiting for is the testifying feeling of the Holy Ghost. 

On Thursday, We were on exchanges again, and this time I was in our area, with an Elder Lagunzad (from the Philippines). We were able to contact the grandparents of a recent convert named Bradley. He is preparing to serve a mission, and has been teaching his Grandparents the lessons from Preach My Gospel as part of his preparations. So, we were able to go in and have a really good lesson with his grandma (his grandpa had to go), where we got an idea of how much she remembered from the lessons Brad taught, and what her beliefs were right then. She told us how after Brad was baptized, she could see a kind of light around him, and she felt like she had been washed clean herself. She also told us how she felt so happy when Brad was able to be baptized for her mother, who had never been baptized while she was alive. Then she asked if it was really necessary to be baptized, and we were able to quote when Christ says "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom..." She nodded, agreeing totally. She told us that she needed to be baptized, and we were able to set a baptismal date for July 4th. It was cool, and she is super ready. 

Those were the really cool things from this week. I hope that things keep going well for you, and that you are able to do those things that you need and want. 

Love and Insanity,
Elder Stuver
