June 6th E-mail...sorry no pics though :( I'll post his countdown block with Elise from the week before. It's super cute!

Hey everyone!
Not much has happened since Thursday! We did have stake conference
this weekend, it was so amazing!! Elder Dube from the presiding 70
came and spoke to us, he was so amazing!! He is from Zimbabwe, and he
shared his conversion story, which was super awesome, but the coolest
part was hearing his testimony of Jesus Christ and how Jesus went
through the atonement for us to be able to live with God again. I also
appreciated how he testified of our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and
also of the twelve Apostles we have on the earth today. It was so
amazing to hear from someone who works first hand with them.
Anyway, other than that, we are still trying to find more people to
teach. We had a zone blitz in our area on Saturday, which is when all
the missionaries in a zone go to a specific area inside the zone to
help find people. We got a couple potential investigators, but no
solid teaching opportunities. Elder Cook and I sat down with our ward
mission leader and the bishop, and were stressing the importance of
member missionary work, and how this area will not grow unless we have
the help and support of the ward. We also talked about ways that we
could build trust of the members and how to motivate them. We're
hoping that we can continue to work with them and start to pick up
this area.
We're not doing much today, we have cleaned our apartment and went
shopping this morning, and I am planning on getting a haircut today at
some point.
I know that Christ lives. I know that the Book of Mormon is another
testament of Jesus Christ, and that inside its pages, we learn how to
grow closer to our Father in heaven. If you have not read this book,
or haven't read it in a while, I invite you to read it, ponder the
message it contains, and then ask God in the name of Christ if it is
true. I know, without a doubt in my mind, if you do this, that God
will give you an answer, and you will know for an assuredly that the
book is true, and that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the
world.
I hope that this week is fantastic, and I love all of you!
Elder Snyder
