Hello,

Sorry for not sending an e-mail Monday or yesterday! The internet was down here due to a storm! Thank you so much for sending those pictures! They brought me back for a little bit! I would send some pictures if I had any really to send! Ha ha! I’ll see what I can do! We are not to look like tourists though so it’s hard to get an opportune moment!

No, I did not do the talent show at the super activity. Sign up sheets were done before I came out plus I have no instrument to play.

Saw Dad on a horse!!! Lookin’ gooood! Virginia I’m so glad that you are adjusting to high school well! It’s a change that’s for sure! I got a letter from Jed!! It was very good to hear from him! You like Mr. Kay huh? Yeah he is a good teacher! Is he teaching you English or Drama? Transfers are almost here! Next Wednesday! I do not know whats taking place because transfer calls are on Saturday. So I do not know if I’ll stay or leave. But I’ll be having a new companion and I’ll be done training! I can’t believe its been three months already! Before you know it I’ll be home! Have you guys been getting my letters? I’ve been getting letters from a MTC pal from Tulsa, Oklahoma! That was very exciting!

Mom how are you doing? Thanks for the email! I’m finding myself in a state were I see you in me. I can’t remember much of anything that has taken place in the last month. It’s been very busy. We are trying to extend baptism invitations every second visit. Stephanie you pretty you!!! How are you! The one on Hunter’s right hand is Katie!!! At first I saw the dog on one of the first pictures you sent, and thinking to myself that can’t be Katie! I thought you lost your mind! The dogs here are either small or they are huge! A part member family has a dog that’s 100 lbs and he’s still a puppy. 6 months old!! I couldn’t believe it! Hunter liking your swagger going on with them sunglasses! Conner how are you doing? Did you have fun moving cows!?! Virginia your are a pretty girl. I can’t believe how much I miss you! OY! Seeing you brought back so many “experiences” we had! I did see a mermaid on one of the televisions at an investigator’s home. Thought of you! (I’m so funny!!) Celina!!! Heeeey beautiful! How are you doing? Saw you too! Looking good! The weather here has been nice for a while. No fires! I did send you an email last week. I hope you got it!  Hey Dad, you look beautiful too!!! How are you? One of the members here was asking a lot about ranching! He really would like to start a ranch! He want to be a guide for hunting on the land of ours HA! It was good talking about Wyoming! People here get a kick that nearest on ramp from home is in another state! And that our nearest WalMart is 2 hours away! There are a lot of people here! We have a member who knows Bishop Paris’ Dad in Worland. Small world! His Name is Brother Young. Well, I’ll let you go and keep up the good work!

God Lives! Church is True! Life’s Good!

Hey Everyone!

This week was good. We had 4 investigators come to church yesterday! It was very exciting! Today I’m not sure what’s going to happen. We might be playing B-ball. I’ll write and tell you what we do! Things here are great! And the members here are good. Our calendar is never full but we do get dinner. We get dinner more with investigating families then members it seems haha! But please don’t freak out I’m ok! I did get the package Tuesday! I can’t tell you enough how much that actually helps with everything! Nothing really is going on now. Just doing the work! Just wondering how Celina was? She sounds like she is doing good! In 2 Nephi it says that all things are done in the wisdom of Him. Including things that are worse in some cases!

How’s work going for you two? Steph and mom? Dad how’s the farm? Thank you for the letter it was so good to hear from you! This week we had exchanges pretty much for the whole week now since my trainer is district leader! Tuesday I had Elder Wunderli with me! We talked to this one investigator about how baptism is not for joining a congregation. It’s for making a covenant with God. My teaching has gotten better! The zone leaders and Elder Marshall have been a great help for me with that! Tomorrow are interviews with the mission president! That should help a lot for many missionaries! Right now ‘Im at a town called De Soto! We are with Elder Wunderli and Elder Hacking! I can’t believe how long I’ve been out already! 3 months! Three more weeks I’m done with training! But I am going to miss Elder Marshall we became pretty good friends! We wrestled today for working out this morning! haha! I’m becoming more comfortable now with everything! I remember how I felt like the first day I came to Crystal City! I felt sick. I’m grateful now that I’m getting comfortable with Missouri now!

Yesterday it rained and this morning you could see the humidity! It’s still cloudy out which I hope it stays like that for a while! It’s in the 70s now! Well I love you guys and wish the best for you. I’m still praying for you so things should be fine! Tell everyone that I miss them! Virginia there is a letter on its way for you! and for the family as well!

Love always,
Elder Stewart

Dear Everyone!

How is the life in Wyoming? Things here are getting cooler and nicer! But I do miss home a lot!!! We have two people who have committed to baptism! One with a date and one who we are working on for a date! Well, I am looking forward to hearing from all of you guys! Stephanie I love you. Virginia I love you. Celina I  love you.  Hunter I love you Conner I  love you. Mom I love you and Dad I  love you and Kenneth I love you. Grandma and Terri and Barney and Nancy and Darwin I love you guys and miss you!

Dad I havent heard from you at all. How are things on the ranch? I hope everything is going good! I am actually having a hard time teaching. I always seem to screw up haha! I know the Lord will help me though as I know he will help our family if we are doing what he wants us to do. I found out that if we put him first things work out. I want you to bring the family together and make a missionary plan. How are you going to do missionary work as a family? I help you. Read your scriptures every night with the family at least one chapter. And Read D&C 11 especially verse 26 I think!! I miss you so much! and I love you so much too.

Mom I am doing good and I’m writing you all!

I’m sorry it’s short but I have to write to my mission president.

Love,

Elder Stewart
