Dear Family and Friends,

Last week was quite the week.  We had A LOT of ups and downs, but we did find a new investigator!!  Joe is the only investigator we have found in this new area so we are quite excited about that!  He really has a desire to learn about the gospel.  He said he has a Book of Mormon, but he hasn't read it in 15 years, BUT he still has it!!  We committed him to read the Book of Mormon and he accepted that commitment.

I also went on exchanges last week with Sister B.  Exchange miracles are real.  We left a card on someone's door and HE called US.  That is the first time that has ever happened to me!  We went by his house later that day and he showed us around his yard.  He has over 1000 plants!  We have an appointment with him this week so we'll see how that goes!

We hiked Mt. Baldy yesterday and almost made it to the "Ice House Saddle", but we had to turn around when we were .4 miles from the top because our Mission President said we had to be back at 4:30 and it was 3:15.  We decided being obedient was more important that making it to the top. We were blessed when we got down because we DIDN'T get a parking ticket and other people did.  We didn't buy a day pass...oops.  But all is well!!

Well I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day.  Love you guys,

Sister Moon

Dear Family and Friends,

Last week was an interesting week.  We finally moved in with our member so we live in our area now. We are still settling in and it's very different living with a member.  We get the beautiful privilege of living with 2 dogs...:/ who love to bark and smell like wet dog...Let me say it will take a lot of getting used to.

We did teach 8 lessons last week, which was double what we taught last week so that was exciting.  Martha is praying for a baptism date so prayers for her would be great!  We also are teaching Stacey and she's praying about the Book of Mormon and baptism too!  Other than those 2 we are struggling with finding because everyone is super well off and content with where they are at.

Well, my brother, Jared, is going into the MTC in 2 days and I'm so excited for him!!  Other than that I have no other news.  I'll write you all next Tuesday, because of Memorial Day.  Have a great week! Love,
Sister Moon


Said goodbye to our one week roommates!

Dear Family and Friends,

Last week was busy busy busy.  We still have no idea where anything is and we are still learning everyone's name.  I hope this week will be more productive than last week.  We only had 4 lessons last week.

But...I did get to see my family yesterday which was super exciting!!!!  It's going to be the last time we will all get to talk together until Christmas.  I'm so excited for Jared to serve a mission, and I know he'll do great.

We still have not moved into Sister A's house, but hopefully we will be able to do that this week.  It will be really nice to finally unpack and get everything organized.

Well, I don't really know anyone yet, but we do have one investigator, Martha, that you can pray for.  She needs a testimony of the Book of Mormon.  And I will have more information next week.  

Have a great week.  
Sister Moon

Dear Family and Friends,

Well, it has finally happened!  I got transferred.  I will be whitewashing into the A W in the U Stake.  My companion is Sister M.  I don't know if you remember, but I was her companion for 6 weeks about 6 months ago.  We have no idea what this area is going to be like, but hopefully we can figure that out soon!

Last week was crazy.  We went on Exchanges and I went to C.  Guess who showed up at our apartment??  Sister S and her family.  It was such a tender mercy to be able to see them!!

Fransisco (Investigator) also came to church yesterday for the first time so that was exciting news!  I'm very sad to have to leave the M Ward.  It has been amazing being able to meet so many new people and to see the gospel bless their lives.  I cannot wait to start all over with this ward and help the people here.

And speaking of tender mercies.  I just heard Taylor Swift...heck yeah!  I am sitting in this computer room and this song starts to play.  I said, "Hey this kinda sounds like Taylor Swift's voice"...then about 30 seconds later I hear the chorus, "I've got a blank space"...and everyone and their mom talks about how Taylor Swift's Blank Space is the best.  Heck yeah...now I can honestly say, "I agree".

Oh my goodness!  Taylor Swift is coming on again.  So far this transfer is AWESOME!

Well, I hope everyone is preparing for summer!  It's going to be a good one.  Love,
Sister Moon
