Hello everyone!!

Hello from Nagasaki!! This week has been a good week. Elder Shaner returned home here from the mission home. He was helping out with the transfer of us Tokyo and the new Office couple. So he is back, and we are now a three man here in Nagasaki!! We also have two Sisters so its really fun!! We had a zone conference in Fukuoka last week, so I was able to see some of the Tokyo Missionaries again. That was cool. The last week here with these two has been really fun! We had a baptismal date with this girl name Yuki san. Her sister was a self referal and got baptized 3 years ago, then a few weeks ago brought Yuki to Church. She wants to get baptized, and is doing really well. Unfortunately we just handed her over to the sisters, so now they will teach her from now on, but were still going to do activities and things with them. We are really excited for her.
So I don't have much time, but something I really have grown a testimony this week is the power of the atonement. I always heard it was a part of everything we do, but recently its been sinking in more. The atonement is a part of everything we do as members. Because we have weaknesses, we must rely on the Atonement. I cant explain really the things I have learned this week, other than that almost every gospel principle, has a bond or link with the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Its the foundation of the Plan of Salvation. Its how we can feel Gods love. Its how we can become better people. Its everything.
Thanks everyone for all your support, and love. I love you all so much, and pray that you can feel the atonement more fully in your lives.
Love, Elder Stewart
