September 9, 2013 - Super Tramp, Take the Long Way Home!

 At the Gila Valley Temple

September 9, 2013

Okay guys.
I have sooo much to tell you and only a short time to do that, so bare with me since this might be scattered and crazy out of control like that storm you guys had. Hehe

1.We went to Five Guys burgers the other day for dinner and Dad, guess what was playing on the radio? Take The Long Way Home by Super Tramp. I about DIED. I remember blasting that song together in the car when I was little. It brought back lots of fun memories!
2. You're going to laugh so hard when you hear this.. NOT. I got freaking bed bugs..... Just my luck right? Hahahhaa I went to climb into bed and I saw these little black bugs just crawlin around. And realized they were BED BUGS. So I hurried and threw everything in the washer on HOT HOT HOT water and killed those little suckers. Then I slept on the floor since I didn't want to sleep on the mattress. I've washed all my clothes and Sister Peterson (The housing Missionaries) came and brought me these plastic mattress covers that are supposed to suffocate any bugs and get rid of them. So I'm in the process of killing stupid bugs. How lame lame lame is that? I can laugh about it now, but at the time I was TICKED. Mostly because I was feeling really picked on. But it really isn't that big of a deal anymore.
3. Our whole zone got to go to the Gila Valley Temple on Tuesday!! It took 2 1/2 hours to drive there and I got car sick, but man oh man. It was very much needed. And did you guys know they have a new VIDEO? Holy cow, it is amazing!!!!!! I don't know if they have the new video in Utah but they have it here and it is so awesome. If they have it, you guys should definitely go. We got to take a lot of pictures as a Zone and I realized how blessed you guys are back at home to have a temple so close. Take advantage of that and pleeeeease go as often as you can. Get Keaton to go as well. Make it a goal once a week for family  night perhaps? How blessed we are to have a little piece of heaven here on earth. They are building the temple here on Ina and Sunrise. Somewhere around there!! Try looking it up and see where abouts it will be!
4. I'm in another Tripanionship! We got a Sister Missionary from the SLC Temple Square Mission for 3 months. She starts her mission in Temple Square, then leaves on her outbound to a state for 3 months then finishes her mission in Temple Square. So when she is back in Utah, Go visit her!! (: Her name is Sister Vassar from South Dakota.

 6. The Bishop asked me and my companions if we would sing in sacrament meeting...... so we convinced the Elders to sing with us and we sang I need thee every hour. And it got me thinking about how we truly need him every single hour. Being out here, we literally pray every hour and even more. We cannot do this by ourselves and that is why we pray. We need his direction and his guidance and support. How are your guys' prayers going?
7. Mahylee was baptized on Saturday and received the Holy Ghost yesterday. Their family was very much prepared for that experience and it was incredible. The spirit was soooooooo strong and I'm very grateful that I had the opportunity to teach them. Their next goal is the temple so we are working with them on that goal.
8. Mom, I ate Navajo Tacos the other night for dinner and it was so delicious. I can't believe you've never made them for us. I mean COME ON, you're Navajo for crying out loud :P Heheh but of course, the taco flew off my plate and into my lap... hahah clumsy me.

10. BRENDAN IS HOMEEEE!! Holy cow. My mind is blown. I truly never thought that day would come!! I imagined that day and now I'm not even there to see it! Hahha but it's okay, I know there is plenty of time to be together in the future. Tell him thank you for being so great to Keaton. That truly means the world to me.

Well folks, That's about all I got for ya.
Things here are looking up, and I've found that as I strive to be more Christlike, things are much more successful.  I am very grateful to be here serving. I know this is where i'm supposed to be and I know my Heavenly Father is helping me succeed. He doesn't want me to fail so he will help me as much as he can :)

Love you all so very much. And i'm very thankful to call you my family.
Love always, Sister Kellee Walker
PS: Keaton, JAMES BAAAAAAXTA. (Adventure Time) Hahahah
