I hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed Conference this week. 

This week we had some success. We decided to visit a contact I did back in January (perks of being in an area for a long time) and we ended up teaching her. We had a great lesson and she said somethings that make her seem golden for baptism. Just a few quotes from our time with E:

"You guys are lucky to find me home, I work a ton and often leave the house for errands. I was going to leave today too, but something told me to stay home."

"The day you guys stopped me in the road, I was looking for guidance from God to help lead me in the right direction."

When asked if she had any questions about the lesson, "I had a bunch of questions at the beginning but you guys answered all of them."

Unfortunately we invited 26 people to conference and only 1 showed up. I was feeling really down about it, but President Uchtdorf's talk about gratitude helped me to remember to feel grateful for the one that came. 

In other news about General Conference, I loved a bunch of the talks that were given, but I especially liked Elder Ballard's for you guys. Clearly his invitation last session didn't impact us enough. I hope you guys back home will buy your own Preach My Gospel, study it, and look for opportunities to share the Gospel.

Other than that, I'm online a bit later than usual because we had to take a trip to the mission office to sign something for my visa. 

Love you guys so much!

Elder Siebers
