This week was great! :)

Monday-- We had a fun P-day! We played this dice game with the Himle's and then helped prep for their Memorial day BBQ that evening and we had a Nerf war! Super fun! :) Love love love the Himle's.

 Sister Himle says:  We love our Idaho missionaries and potatoes!! 

 Nerf War

 Sister Dixon drew our District... yes I know I'm the fattest, thank you. hahaha

Tuesday-- We went on exchanges with the Brimhall Sisters! I was with Sister Dixon! She was with Sister Barney in Palmdale after I left, so she knew all of the people that I love in Palmdale! :) So awesome to hear the great things that are still happening over there. I had been praying super hard leading up to this last exchange of the transfer that we would be able to find some new people to teach, and voila! We got a new investigator! :) Her name is Leslie and she was on some pain meds, but she was great! She totally needs the gospel! WE talked to her and taught the Plan of Salvation and really focused on the resurrection and how we know she will be free from all of her physical pain and trials when she is resurrected one day. Sister Dixon is awesome and so good at teaching! It was super fun being on exchanges with her! Miracles happen and are so real! 

For dinner that night we ate at the Rodriguez's and when we walked in Sister Rodriguez said, "I hope you like pizza!" hahaha yayyyyyy pizza for the seventh time! Haha it ended up being such a good evening with them and their 13 year old son, Aaron reminded me soooo much of Mason! He was crackin' me up! :)

We then used the excuse of needing to use the Moyes' bathroom so we could talk to them for a little bit and that was good! We set it up so we can come back and teach them! :) Yay!

Then we went and stopped by Craig and Sandra's! They were so awesome! It was an awesome visit and so good to reconnect with them, after 10 years! Can you believe that?? Time flies!
Hopefully we will be able to stop by again soon, it was so great to see them!

Wednesday-- We taught the Restoration to this girl named Ashley on her doorstep... well it wasn't her doorstep, it was her cousins, and she was just visiting. So bummer deal we weren't able to continue to teach her because she was leaving for the summer! But it was an awesome lesson and she has some Mormon friends, so we are positive she will be alright. :)

We had a BBQ for dinner with the Hunter's poolside, in their neighborhood pool place! :) It was fun. Their kids are hilarious.

Thursday- Sunday--
Sister Porter came out with us to Leslie's for another lesson, but Leslie wasn't feeling up to it, so we ended up just stopping by at Sierra's! (the new investigator Sister Dodson and I found a couple weeks ago) and we ended up teaching her the Restoration again but using the Bible mostly because she had some major concerns with adding new beliefs in her life. It went really well! The spirit was there and she committed to baptism! June 27th is the date! She was supposed to come to Stake conference this weekend but she was asleep when we went with Sister McMurtrey to go pick her up.. so that was sad she didn't end up coming. I have faith though that she will come around!

We talked to this kid named Jack at his lemonade stand! He's a little old to be selling lemonade... but it's okay cause it was awesome! He's 14 and knows his bible! He was awesome. It was great talking with him and teaching him the Restoration. He took a pamphlet! so that's good! :)

We talked to a lot of people and there's lots of potential, we just need to start teaching them!

Love you all! 
Have an awesome week! :)

Sister Loar

{1 Nephi 17:13}
The Lord is our light in the wilderness, we can look to him and find the way to the promised land.
We can help Him out and be the lower lights along the shore for the people searching for the path. 

Hymn #335

1. Brightly beams our Father's mercy
From his lighthouse evermore,
But to us he gives the keeping
Of the lights along the shore.
Let the lower lights be burning;
Send a gleam across the wave.
Some poor fainting, struggling seaman
You may rescue, you may save.
2. Dark the night of sin has settled;
Loud the angry billows roar.
Eager eyes are watching, longing,
For the lights along the shore.
3. Trim your feeble lamp, my brother;
Some poor sailor, tempest-tossed,
Trying now to make the harbor

Sister Himle took us to Panera and Yogurtland! :)
