This week went really well! It started off with me saying goodbye to Sister Lovell. That was sad, but then I got Sister Hart! And she's awesome! We've already had so much fun! Her last area was in Willamina. That's where she was trained and she was there for about 4 1/2 months. And now she's with me! And she's from Gilbert, AZ! Arizona missionaries are obviously the best ones! Just kidding, I promise I'm humble...

We got two new investigators this week! One of them was passed off to us from the 2nd ward Elders, and we have our first appointment with her on Tuesday. We went over to set up the appointment and she was so nice! She's really interested in coming to church and learning more about it! Our other new investigator is Lane! So this is a funny story. We were actually teaching Tessa, one of recent converts, when Lane walked in and started being all sassy and antagonistic. He kept asking weird questions from the kitchen and we finally had to ask him to stop and be respectful while we were trying to teach Tessa. Then a few minutes later, he pulled up a chair and joined in on the lesson! He pretty much hijacked Tessa's lesson, but that's okay! He started asking a ton of questions. Like, "questions of the soul" kind of questions! It was awesome! He was putting up a front the entire time, but there were a few moments when we could see past the front he was putting up. We showed him the video "Because of Him." This video is a really powerful video about the life and mission of Jesus Christ. It's impossible to not feel the spirit while watching this video! Anyways, he was definitely feeling the spirit while watching it. YOU COULD SEE IT IN HIS FACE! I felt an overwhelming sense of God's love for him, and I was able to bear my testimony about the reality of living Savior who died for all of us. He agreed to have us come back on Wednesday!

I love serving in the YSA! It was super awkward at first, and sometimes still is, but I love these people so much!
