Elder Shurtleff


Hey everyone! Hope your week was as fantastic and busy as mine! I can't believe it's already October!! This month flew by, and the weather got lots colder. This week was go go go for Elder Shurtleff and I. We had lots of appointments set up everyday. One of my favorite people that we are teaching right now is named Wylon. He is such an awesome guy! He drives trucks for a living so he's rarely ever home. Last Sunday we were able to meet him in person because he was actually home, which was awesome. He is on date to be baptized with his wife on January 5th, which in case some of you don't know that's my birthday! So mark your calendars.  He is super excited and so are we. I really hope I'm still in the area when it happens! Elder Shurtleff also accidentally wiped his phone this week so we had to deal with that. It was actually really funny, because he was so stressed out. We got it figured out tho so don't you folks at home worry. Exchanges were also this week. I went down to Bonners Ferry with Elder Belnap. He's from Gilbert Arizona and our wrestling teams actually wrestled each other a few years in a row in Vegas. We had a lot of fun and we get along really well. All of the lessons that we had scheduled fell though and so we just went street contacting. We found a lot of potential people to teach which was awesome. On Saturday we went to a community Huckleberry Pancake breakfast! So huckleberries are everybody's favorite thing here so they make lots of stuff with them. The pancakes were so good and they even let us eat for free which was amazing! Yesterday for church was the primary program in the Libby ward. The spirit was strong during the meeting and it was so awesome to hear the testimonies of the little kids. As most of you know General Conference is this week. This one is going to be so awesome, so with that I want to challenge ALL of you to pray about somebody that you think could use Conference and then invite them to watch it. It can either be with your family or you can just give them the link to I promise as you do that the Lord will inspire you with somebody that needs the message of the Gospel! I love you all and I'll talk to you next week!

Love Elder Abbott
