Well this week was a good week we are just chugging along...we are doing good.  I am doing all good... I am enjoying the mission... and glad for the weeks to come.  We have been having some good weeks these past weeks, and I dont have much to share with you guys, other than a story of a guy named Agusto...

Agusto is one of our investigators.  We found him about 2 weeks and 2 days ago.  but first off, our mission has a theme (I think that is what you call it)  and that theme is Baptize and Retain.  So anyways a thing that we have also been practicing is, buscando los escogidos, or I think the translation is something like looking for the people who are ready.  That we contact people and invite them to church and baptism the first lesson(like always) but if they say no... we let them go for a little bit of time and we continue looking for the people that say yes...  and so anyway we had a cool experience with this with Agusto.  So we found him in the street about 2 weeks ago saturday... and we literally only talked with him for 5 minutes, and we invited him to church.  And well he said yes!  But usually when the people here say yes they just are kind of lying, but to be nice they say yes and they end up not going.  But that sunday which is 3 sundays ago he went to church!  So that was really cool!  But then that week with conferences and sickness of my companion we couldnt end up making it to visit him that week.. but we asked one of his friends who is Walter to talk to him to see if he would go to church again.. and he said yes.  So then 2 sundays ago (general conference)  this Agusto came to church AGAIN!  and we had only talked to him for about 5minutes.  And just so you guys know that is basically a miracle.... so anyways... this week we finally had put a time with him on wednesday to meet with him and so we met with him... and we taught him the restoration...  AND HE BELIEVED EVERYTHING!  It was really cool to see all this happen... and we invited him to be baptized for the 18th (this coming saturday) and he said yes!  So then we invited him to church this week and he came again!  and so now he will be getting baptized this saturday...  So anyways long story short there are many people ready to hear this gospel... we just need to find them.  I had been looking day to day for 24ish hours a day for this and I finally found it.  It is hard but it is rewarding.  So it is our job not only the missionaries, but the members (as shown in this story, the member that took him to church the 2 time) to find these people that are ready to be baptized and to come unto christ.  So sorry for the long story... but it was actually pretty cool to see. 

Last thing is that I have been studying more of the attributes of Christ... and I have noticed a big change in my life.  Even in just one week it really has changed me as a person.  I hope that you guys can do the same.... And a great place to find them are in Jesus the Christ... Dads favorite book...  I found 25 different attributes of Christ in just the first chapter and studied each one of them and it changed me... STUDY THEM!

Love Your Dear Elder Stuart
