June 25, 2012

Hey Everyone!!! I'm happy to hear that everyone is doing well, I really miss watching the Iron Man competition. Did they have to cancel church again? Tell the Griffitts I said hello and I love them. Yeah, I heard through the grapevine that Matt is getting married. Congrats to him! If you could get his address for me? I'd appreciate that, also, could you please get the Connery's address? I seemed to have lost it. I still love that family a lot. That's great that Dwight has become friends with the EQP. I miss fishing too! Haha! soon... So yeah, the weather here is amazingly hot... More humid than anyting, but it's okay! We had a excellent week! We picked up 4 new investigators this week! That is terrific for us!!! I'm looking forward to working to each and everyone of them, I see a lot of potential with them. We did some service for a lady that became a investigator this week, she just purchased like half an acre and it needed mowed and she couldn't do it so we did and it took a while but it was fun, freaking humid that day might I add... She was mentioning how much she hates a certain tree in her yard and said that she is going to get rid of it this winter, well I volunteered to chop it down, that... was... really hard, mainly because I just mowed a huge lawn, now I had to open my mouth to chop down a tree, but I got it down. It was funny, I broke the axe when the tree was almost done, so I went to go and tell her and I heard this loud crack and crunch and I looked behind me and saw it fall down!!! What are the odds of that?!?! It was a pain in the butt to drag to the curb, but Elder Ashby and I got it done! Man that thing was heavy! She wanted to pay us but we refused, so she bought us a pizza and the three of us ate it, she has been asking us some questions lately too. Right before I was going to say that we have to go, she said "So, what are your beliefs?" Being exhausted, we then began to teach her the Restoration. She didn't have a problem with it and she has been asking us some other questions too. She's been to a lot of different churches in her life and told us how she has gotted screwed over in different churches but she said that she may make it to church sometime. When we finally left, we started to bike back to the apartment and Elder Ashby's piece of poo bike broke again, so we had to walk like a mile back home. We had a good day tho!!! Thank you for your prayers everyone!! I'm a firm believer in prayer and how it really can help. Well, Transfer calls came. When you get transferred, you get a phone call, but if you stay, no one calls you. Well, we got a call... I picked up the phone and it was one of the assistants, he said "Elder Stuart! I have great news! you both are staying in Lebanon, but, President Merkley wants you to be the District Leader in your district". Shockingly I said yes! It immediately felt as if someone placed a load of bricks on my shoulders. I'm really looking forward to it tho! We are defiantly going to be needing a car now. I have to do a load of exchanges and baptism interviews if there are any. I'm going to call the fleet coordinator in a bit. Hopefully we can get one. I was talking to members in the ward here and they can't recall there being any District Leaders in Lebanon. At least not for a long time. Wish me luck!! I'm almost out of time, but I love you all and I hope you have a excellent week! once again, I love you all. The Church is true!!! Elder Stuart
