Libby/Troy Montana


Elder Shurtleff

1 Month!

Hey everyone! So if you missed the title of this email, Friday marked my one month mark in my mission. It has gone by super fast. I can already see and feel a difference in my life and I can't wait to see what these next 23 months have in store. This past week was great. We are super busy and are teaching a lot of people. The people here in Troy and Libby are awesome and are so prepared to hear the Gospel.  Lots of miracles are happening as well. We had one awesome experience on Monday where a lady's heart was softened and completely changed during the lesson. It was super awesome but it's such a long story so I'm not going to type it all. I also handed out my first Book of Mormon on Friday to a baptist lady that had just moved here from Oklahoma a few weeks ago. She said that everything we were talking about is what she grew up believing and agreed to take a Book of Mormon and read it! We haven't heard back from her yet but I'll keep you all posted. On Saturday we were supposed to help a less active lady in Troy put up some side walls on the house she is building. Well we were about 3 hours late, and didn't have time to change because we were so busy. So I was up on a ladder hammering in the nails in my church clothes and Elder Shurtleff was lifting the boards in his. We were there for about an hour and a half and it was so much fun. This Sunday I got to go to the Troy branch. It was an awesome branch, and there are only like 60 or 65 members. The people are super nice tho and I really love working in Troy. The Church is true! I love you all!

PS: Sorry for the lack of pictures, but we're so busy that I can't take a lot.😂
