This is only half of them, I should have taken
the full group shot, so funny!

Mulan Disney movie. There were about 15
priesthood leaders, we were laughing so hard!
They were awesome!

the rain shower came!
The pavilion provided awesome
acoustics for the music!

things to do up at camp
each day was go around to all

priesthood helpers taking a quick nap between
activities...we put their treats on their tummies to
wake up to!!

special needs gals that was up with us all week!
She was showing me her bubbles that she got
that particular day from her ward helper that spent the
week with her up at camp.

Even a couple of priesthood leaders helped too,
making some for a couple of girls in their ward
that had to go home sick!!
They are magnet boards, with the camp theme on them.

our last evening up at camp. He was amazing!
He taught the group about what faith really is, and
the levels of faith. He taught about the importance to
act when we receive promptings and answers to our
prayers. He is such a wonderful leader!

love and service to one another up at camp all week!
Heber Valley was so beautiful and amazing!
The spirit worked through so many and
Heavenly Father's love was felt so strong!
We needed every single one to make the week so special!!
What a beautiful sacred place that is up there!
What a blessing to have been with such an amazing
group experiencing such a wonderful & strengthening
time together!! We love that our faith was
strengthened, our testimonies deepened,
and unity was a result as the fun and spirit
continued throughout the full week!
|When the week was over, we loaded the buses for home,|
bitter-sweet feelings for sure, xoxo!!
|Kodi and I rode back together and we spontaneously|
stopped on the way out to take a quick picture together!
I seriously feel that this calling, especially at this
time in my life, is such an amazing gift and blessing for me!
I do not have the words for how grateful I am for the
happiness, peace, friendship, joy, miracles, and
many other blessings that my
family and I have received from just
these past 6 months of serving in this calling.
It feels like it's a very literal mini mission !
And I am more than grateful for it!
Now that camp is over, we are on to the next thing...
busy busy busy, but so so good too!
