So, my letter will be brief since I talked to ya'll yesterday.......this past P-day was the best day ever! We had district p-day at a member’s house in the stake. (who is loaded) They have a really nice home! We all played sports, but guess what they had?!?? LACROSSE equipment and a yard big enough to play it in!!!!! Ahhh…… I was so excited!!!! I played lax A L L day long! I've missed it so much!!! We also played the “couch” game, and “apples to apples!” But the important thing is I got to play lacrosse! No one else really knew how to play so I tried teaching Sisters Hunt and Zimmerman……. but they didn't like it (#couldn'treallydoit) They had their sports there too (tennis and soccer) so they were a little occupied. I convinced one of the Elders to play catch with me. It took a while to teach him some basics but he eventually got it. It was a blast!! It made me miss my team though!!!! Later that night we had a lesson with Faith, about Jesus Christ. It went really well.

Lucianne really appreciated the help! #worthitfersure
Wednesday, we went and saw the Walkers! They are the cutest old couple. (I've told you about them before) We also did a lot of “stop-bys”, but without any success. The day ended great when Sister Zimmerman's recent convert from her past area came to visit us and took us out to the Cheesecake Factory for a special dinner! It was so lovely! Seriously, the food

Thursday, we had district meeting. We talked a lot about the enabling power of the atonement, grace, remembrance, and families. Those are some things that are so unique about the Church. You have got to love eternal families :) We had to sneak out of the meeting a minute early so we could get to Sister Z's physical therapy appointment. Her knee is doing a lot better. She is off crutches now, so that is nice.

After the baptism, Elder Stacey said he would take us out to Perkins. Little did we know it was his birthday. Naturally we found out. ( because we are sneaky) While we were there a biker gang came in. They were all drunk and when we started singing “Happy Birthday” to Elder Stacey, what happened next was HILARIOUS! One of the really drunk ones was like "YOU DID IT MAN, YOU DID IT!!!!" We all were busting up laughing!!!! After that we had a conference call with the zone because our zone had 7 baptisms in one day and 3 of them were ours! So we got on and bore our testimonies then talked about the experience! It was a great day!

Sunday: Happy Mother's day! Today the girls were confirmed. Charity came to church with them and it was so amazing to see Charity, Summer, Faith, Hope and Shania all at church :) I was bawling during their confirmation blessings especially when they talked about them getting married in the temple and Shania going on a mission!!!!!! I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of their life to see them enter into the waters of baptism and make covenants with the Lord! After church we went to Lucianne's to skype you guys! Mom I can't believe you didn't recognize my voice at first!!! Everyone looks so good! I was so thrilled to be able to see you all and talk to you! I love you all so much! This was seriously the best week
Oh and today we found out about transfers...Sister Hunt and I are going

them! Well, I have to go. I love you all
