November 2, 2015

Hello Parents,
We had a baptism this week!  A's baptism was great.  Our branch building is so small that the font is hidden under the floor in the primary room. We just pull the cover off and fill it up.  We had a pretty simple program and then one of the brothers in the branch performed the baptism.  The next day we confirmed her and also gave J the Melchizedek priesthood.  Such a cool weekend!

Do you know the maiden name of the rm that served in Busan?  I bet I've heard of her.  Are they living in the stake then?

What Elder Stevenson was talking about, with the leaf answers, is one of those really hard to learn skills.  In most teaching situations we can easily answer most questions but often the answers we give don't really help the people to understand.  Our goal is to invite the Spirit and we do that by teaching true doctrine.  If we can help them understand the underlying doctrine then the Spirit will help them know how to put that into practice.

I'm sorry for the short email again.  One of these weeks I'll some organized and write a really good one.
Love you all,
Elder Stapley
