There are tons of Volcanoes around here. I don't know if there are any active ones, but since there are volcanoes there are lava caves!! I haven't been in a lava cave since we went to Snow's Canyon years ago.... Anyway, we had a sisters' p-day with all of the sisters in the Redmond Zone (we're the only sisters in our zone) and the Bend Zone (there are 3 companions in Bend, well, one in La Pine and 2 in Bend). So there were 10 of us in total. It was really fun!! We got to do some crawling and lots of squats. I went the furthest, it was awesome!! [Knowing Kelly, it doesn't surprise our family that she went the furthest! I'm jealous I wasn't there, we'd go as far as we could possibly go.] Naturally, we all got super dirty and then ate Little Caesars Pizza.
We had an investigator come to church! Sister Spencer and I are going to open our mouths more and introduce ourselves to random people.
Our P-day has been super busy. We have been in Bend since 8 in the morning. We had to get an oil change on our car, we found out that 2 of our tires have nails in them so we have to go to Les Schwab soon to get new tires.
We sang hymns in the caves today. It was really spiritual. Some of the sisters got each of us a little flashlight and they wrote the scripture 1Nephi 17:13. "And I will also be your light in the wilderness; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep my commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led." It was really cute! And it is a great message.

I'm thankful for this tag that I wear everyday!!

|Hello!! -The Majestic Rockchuck|
|These are the little animals that live really close to the church. |
They are called yellow-bellied marmots or rock-chucks.
[I thought they were just squirrels or really fat gophers or really small beavers!]
|Sister Porter took pictures. Sister Porter and I were in the MTC together.|
[Remember how long ago Sister Martin was in the MTC?]
