July 2015
I got to go to Burley for exchanges which was awesome, I loved serving their. I did not get a chance to go to my old area though or see anyone I knew, I enjoyed it.
It has been in the low triple digits this week, no one here likes it. Since Sister A and I are both from hot areas we are handling it better than most people are.
We got a car for this transfer it is awesome, not a lot of miles on it so we are still mostly biking.
Went to the area where Evil Knivel jumped when he was younger it is in are area.
One question we get asked alot is what was your reaction to your mission call? I have always said that I was excited and still am, I love this area and the people here.
We went to Bridgeview and also did some service projects for members here. Was able to listen to 2 homecoming talks in are wards this past week they were awesome.
Did some street contacting this week.
We made some peach pies at a members house and then shared them with a non member couple it was pretty awesome.
We are trying to get the members to start sharing the gospel with more of their non member friends and neighbors so we went and talked to alot of the youth classes today.
Both Sister A and I think we will be transferred since we are loosing alot of sister's this transfer and last transfer. We were encouraged to get are books in order for who ever takes over this area. I will be sad to leave since this area has been awesome, their are alot of wonderful people here in the Twin Falls Stake.

June 2015
Zone Conference was great, Sister M was sick so we came home as soon as it was over.
Went to Dirkies lake for Zone activity this month.
Both Sister M and I spoke  at an 8 year old's baptism it was awesome. Went to Bridgeview and went on splits with members in one of our wards.
We got to watch Meet the Mormons with some recent converts and a non member it was awesome.
Went and visited with people so Sister M could say good bye to people, I will miss having her as a companion. I am getting Sister A from my MTC group which will be fun.

May 2015

Made May Day baskets and took them around with the lady we live with. Went to the care center and visited with people their. Spent a lot of time on our bikes, a lot of people were not home which was not fun.
It is starting to get warm here but nothing like what you guys will be experiencing soon. We also have had a number of rain storms(biking is no fun then). The Lord does bless us, when we leave to get on our bikes it stops long enough for us to get to the next area before it starts up again.

I loved Skyping with all of you it was so wonderful.
Sister M and I taught at District meeting. We have had some great discussions with some non members which has been awesome. Was able to go to the temple it was awesome. Sister M and I are staying together for this transfer, this is her last transfer then she goes home.

April 2015
General Conference was awesome, I loved it.
Went and introduced my new companion Sister M to the members of the ward's we are serving in.
My new companion is so different then I am but she is so funny, she is awesome.
We have had some great opportunities to serve others in this area. We had exchanges which are always fun and interesting.
This is from a dinner appointment we had both Sister M and I got to sit in the car our district and Sister M and I .

Sister Patterson just passed her hump day on her mission, I can not believe how quickly her mission has seemed to have gone thus far. She is now in her 3rd area and her 5th and 6th companions, she is currently serving with Sister T(who goes home this upcoming week) and Sister J who has only been out a short time.

Some highlights of the past several months..
