Week 37

Hi Family!

Transfers came and went and Sister Swain and I are still together! wahoo! We love the people here in South Jordan!

Last p-day, Sister Swain and I planned a zone activity for our zone. It was really fun! We have an AMAZING sister who is like our mission mom. She opened her home for our activity. She has a tennis/basketball court, swing set, and we put out Frisbees and croquet. She even made lots of food! It was pretty great p-day! The Assistant Presidents (APs) came too! See photo below of our zone.

We're still struggling to build our teaching pool, but we have some new leads and hope and pray that these people will be open and receptive to the message of the restored gospel. Our former investigators are fizzling out and aren't progressing. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Please keep them in your prayers.

We also taught in Relief Society. Our lesson was from Elder Oaks talk, "No other Gods." (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2013/10/no-other-gods?lang=eng) Think about how we put other "priorities" in front of God. "What is our ultimate priority? Are we serving priorities or gods ahead of the God we profess to worship?" We talked about the need for balance. We all have priorities in life but we need to remember Heavenly Father's plan of happiness and where we want to go. Think about it.

K folks, love you!

P.S. The other photo is of my district before transfers. We all stayed, but Sister Rogers (next to me) was transferred to Draper.
