January 26, 2015

Dear Family and Friends,

 Last week was so AMAZING.  The best news is that my brother got his mission call and he's going to the ROCHESTER NEW YORK mission!!  He will leave May 20th which means I will miss seeing him by about 2 months, but that means I just have to wait 22 months when I get home :) and we all know 22 is a great number!

 We had 23 lessons this week so we were super excited about that!  We committed Pedro to baptism on March 21st and he accepted.  We have a lot more teaching to do, but he came to church twice and he really likes it.  His wife came yesterday too, so we are planning to set a date with her this week.

 We also had Zone Conference last week so I got to hang our with my buddies, Sister R and Sister M.  It was a great meeting, and we talked a lot about the Spirit.  We learned how the Spirit works more and then we were able to really fell the Spirit last week during our lessons. 

 We taught Sabrina the Restoration and the Spirit definitely guided the lesson.  We usually tell the shortened version of the "First Vision" which I have memorized and it's really easy to say, but for some reason during the lesson I couldn't remember the shortened version.  I kept saying the longer version in my head, and I couldn't remember the short version for the life of me. I decided that maybe I should just say the longer version.  That's what I did, and we ended up talking about how Joseph Smith struggled and had to go through trials (which is the part that is taken out of the shortened version), and then he was able to receive his answer.  We talked about how that is basically what she's going through at the moment and the Spirit was so strong.  It was the best lesson ever.

Have a great week!  Love,
Sister Moon

Dear family and Friends,

 This week is going great so far.  We got to go to the temple this morning which was AMAZING.  If you ever want to feel the Spirit to its max then go to the temple!  Everyone is so nice and helpful, so I can't wait till heaven because it will feel like that all the time!  But don't worry I'm not planning on dying anytime soon...

Today is our P-day so I won't be back until January 26th so I'll probably have more to say then, but until then I will just share a story with you.  

Once upon a time we had over 600 people on our ward list and no one knew who 300 of them were.  We decided that we would see if we could verify everyone's address.  Well it's been about 2 months now and we are down to 5 people that haven't yet been verified.  We have been working hard!  I may or may not have lifted Sister M up so she could peek into some windows to see if anyone lived there.  We may or may not have tricked the mailman into showing us someone's mail.  We may or may not have called their parents to see if they still lived there.  We may or may not have looked at people's packages by their doorstep.  We may or may not have helped our Ward Mission Leader Facebook stalk people.  But, the point is that we only have 5 people to go!!  It's been a good week.


Talk to you all later.  Love,


Sister Moon

Dear Family and Friends,

 This week was awesome!  We had 15 lessons, and continued to find people from our Ward List.  We didn't do much that was different from every week, except we had Stake Conference which was awesome!!

 Elder Bassett from the 70 came and spoke to us.  He spoke a lot about enduring to the end and about going to the temple.  A questioned was asked, "If you went to trial right now would there be enough evidence to convict you as a temple worshipper?"  We talked a lot about this question, and we decided that we need to put the temple first in our lives.  The temple is literally heaven on earth, and in a world that is going crazy we need to go to the temple to feel the peace that God wants to give us.

 We are super excited because we actually get to go to the temple this Friday, so we will have another P-day this Friday, and not the following Monday. 

 There is a quote I found this week that was amazing and I want to share it with you.  It says, "Looking for the path to safety in the counsel of prophets makes sense to those with strong faith…the choice not to take prophetic counsel changes the very ground upon which we stand. It becomes more dangerous. The failure to take prophetic counsel lessens our power to take inspired counsel in the future. The best time to have decided to help Noah build the ark was the first time he asked. Each time he asked after that, each failure to respond would have lessened sensitivity to the Spirit. And so each time his request would have seemed more foolish, until the rain came. And then it was too late.

~ Elder Henry B. Eyring

The Spirit can only dwell with us if we are worthy.  I hope we can all listen to the Spirit and do what God would have us do and become what God would have us become, even if it's not what we want.  Have a great week.  Love,

Sister Moon


I'll meet you at the corner of Moon dust and Moon Crest :)

Dear Family and Friends,

Linda got baptized last week so of course it was a great week!!!!  She was freaking out before the baptism,and really didn't think the ear putty stuff we got for her would work.  Sister M and I prayed like there was no tomorrow, and turns out everything went great!  She was confirmed yesterday and she is now a member of the church!  Woot woot!  The Spirit was so strong in the room when she got baptized.  Linda has such a strong testimony of the gospel, and she really felt the Spirit bear witness to her that she was making the right choice!  I am so grateful I am able to be a part of her journey.
We also started a new year!  So far this year has been pretty good.  I was able to keep the tradition going and I made a fruit pizza on New Year's Eve!  We have so much junk in our apartment that we decided we aren't going to start the "New Year Diet" until later :), plus our gym is STILL not ready!  Ugh.

Sister M and I are doing well together.  We are working hard, and finding people to teach.  The days are long, but fulfilling so that always makes you feel like you're doing something right.  We have set some goals for this transfer including meeting every single person on the ward list, so we have become professional stalkers :)  Our motto is, "We gon' find you".  But seriously, we are going to find everyone!!

Have a great week and a happy new year!
