Sister Kellee Walker's Tuscon Arizona Mission - May 27, 2014

New Transfer, New Goals, New NEW! NEW!

May 27, 2014


Transfers happened, And I  have a new companion, Sister Barnes from Provo (:

We also found Area 51 on accident while trying to find a way into a gated community. We probably shouldn't have been snooping around but there was a potential investigator in the gated community so we parked our car and started walking, thinking maybe we could just walk around the gate. But then we found the Area 51 sign and the fence was electric and there was a big flat building with no windows... Totally Area 51 material. PLUS, we found the sketchy alien foot prints just chillin in the dirt. So basically Aliens are real. 

Today during our Transfer Meeting Sister Killpack was talking to us about missionary work of course, and she said something that I wanted to share with you, She was talking about an Elder who got up to share his testimony and he said, "You know, I can't actually say that I've seen Christ on my mission." And then he paused and said, "But I feel like I have." And holy cow the spirit was so strong when she said that! I don't know why, but I loved it. She also talked about how the Savior truly is here. Even in this desert. He is walking with us everywhere we go, giving us strength, giving us courage, giving us patience. He is always there for me & I think I truly understood that today. I love my mission. I love serving & watching myself change through the atonement. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. This gospel is true and I know it with my whole heart. 

Thank you for all your love and support. This isn't easy, but it's worth every sacrifice. 

Sorry this email was so short. 
Until next week!!
Love always, Sister Walker

PS: That is the nastiest snake and spider i've ever seen. 
Did you name them before you smashed the spider and tossed the snake? 

Area 51!  It's real and we found it.

The Week of All Weeks Has Arrived

May 19, 2014

Well fancy meeting you here!

This week was pretty much a mix of emotions.. 
But in a good way.. I think? Hhahah

Let me first off tell you that I did get my camera card, Thank you for that!
Also, Anna and Marketa and Nele look like total babes!! How in the heck did that happen?!
They are all so grown up!! MaryAnn sent me some pictures and everyone is soooo big!
My mind has been blown. 
I don't have anytime to send an email back to Ben and El and their kiddos.. 
but if you could find a way to tell them thank you for the emails, I would much appreciate that!
I laughed really hard and smiled really big (: 
I also thought you should know MOM, that I got a surprise email from Elder Brown!! 
He gave me his address so now we can write each other!! 
And Mom, I think that it is sooooo amazing that you are taking that class with the Sisters.
My heart literally skipped a beat when you told me that!
There is nothing better you could be doing than reading from PMG, role playing and preparing!!
You never know when or who will be willing to listen (:
The Sisters sound like amazing missionaries!! 
Tell them I say HELLOOOO!

Okay so anyways.. Let me tell you about my week here in Tucson Arizona.
So first of all, let me tell you about the weather, because well... it's fearchin HOT! 103 degrees. 
I'm afraid to say.. we're going to have a very hot summer.. and Winter. hahaha boy oh boy!

And good news!! We finally went caving this morning!! We went to Pepper-sauce Caves in Oracle. 
Maybe you can look it up? I don't know if you can but it was intense. 
We had to crawl through what's called the, "Birthing Canal..." HAHAHA it was so tight. 
All the Elders who had made it through the tight hole,
 kept making a joke every time someone would come out of the hole.. 
they'd say, "Ohhh look, it's a boy!!" HAHAHA I was dying!
We got really muddy and played in some mud puddles! Keaton & I are definitely going caving.

We went on exchanges on Thursday & Sister Fuller went to a different area & I stayed in our area. 
We taught 6 lessons and managed to find 3 new investigators!!
I was with Sister Ellis on Thursday and I told her before hand that we are going to make a goal, 
A goal to talk with EVERYONE!! So that's exactly what we did. 
We talked to everyone we came in contact with and the Lord blessed us for our efforts!! 
My testimony of obedience and diligence continues to be strengthened. 
Along with my testimony of patience. 

But yeah, My emotions are crazy right now. And it's not because i'm on my period.. hahaha 
I hold obedience very high on my priorities. 

I hope you are all having a great week & that Keaton is sooo super excited for "SUMMER TIME LUH HUH HUH HUH HUH HUVIN LUUUUUVIN IN THE SUMMER TIME!!" (name that show)

Love always, 
Sister Kellee Walker!!

PS: Send me some stickers?

Hello Folks

May 12, 2014

Oh man it was sooooooo great to talk with you all & see you!!
We are very blessed to have the technology that we do (:

There was one thing I was going to mention but forgots.. haha
Could you send me my SD card back? 
The one I'm using is just about full :( 

I hope you had a good mothers day mama.
I sure do miss you and I'm so grateful for all you do and for all the love you show me.
Man, I cannot wait to be with you again (:
There is sooo much to catch up on!!

I also wrote a little poem I wanted to share with you!!

I Know He is Always There.
by Sister Walker

Sometimes I feel so far away
And don't know how to feel,
His loving arms surround me all
And make my heart feel whole.
I know deep down He's always there
To love and show the way.
"But how," I ask, "do I feel Him near?"

"Just pray dear one." I hear Him say,
"And I'll always be right there.
I'll lead you through the darkest days
That seem to never end.
Strive each day to be like me
And learn about my Son.
I'm here for you my dear sweet child,
I promise I'll never leave.
I always want to best for you,
You have no greater friend."

And now I know with all my soul,
That Father is always near.
I can call on Him both day and night,
I have no greater friend.

Have a great week folks (:

I love you so!!

Love always Sister Walker

ps: we decided last night as a zone to hold out on the caving until next week!

Helloooooooooo Strangers!

May 5, 2014

Okay so to answer your questions:
I am feeling as great as a bird with a french fry (: 
I asked Elder Jones to give me a blessing of healing & it was his first blessing EVER & he did amazing & I feel great. 
Yes I got your adorable easter package and your care package (: Thank you soooo much. 
I seemed to have gotten the whole zone sick (okay not the whole zone) but 3 of the elders and a sister is sick.... so whoooooops. 

As for this week.. It was insanely busy!!

We went to the temple which was soooo very needed! I received a lot of revelation that I really needed & a lot of comfort as well. We got to see the NEW new video! I can't believe they are coming out with soooo many! It's awesome (:

We also had our MLC meeting this week with all the Missionary Leaders in our mission!!
(Missionary Leadership Council)
I've never had more fun!! (: We talked all about the mission & how we can improve our missionaries.
Did I ever tell you how much I love this calling?!! The Lord has so much trust & faith in me!!
I am truly soooo incredibly blessed.

Sister Fuller & I went on exchanges this week. I stayed in the area this time with a new sister, Sister McNally and Sister Fuller went to Sister Stratton's area. 

IAnd you saw in the pictures I sent you that we went to Cracker Barrel (: It reminded me sooo much of home!! I had breakfast for dinner (: I have decided, Dad, that I am going to request your Sunday Morning Waffles for my first breakfast home!! I HAVE MISSED THEM SOOOOO MUCH!

Remind me to tell you on Sunday about how we got the Elders back from when they put shaving cream and sardeenes on our car... (: It wasn't damaging or anything so don't freak out
but it was super funny!

And this morning we woke up suuuuuper early and went on a hike with some of our Zone to Romero Pools (: We had a lot of fun & maybe one day Keaton & I can go hiking to all these places! But I vote in December when it's not 98 degrees at 7 in the morning. (: I love Arizona. You are going to have a killer hard time getting me to stay in Utah. hahaha

Well family. I love you & I will be seeing you on SUNDAY!!!!

As for the time.
Church gets out at 4:00 and we are going straight over to the Downey's to video Chat with you. Be ready around 4:30 but we aren't sure if they have 2 computers or if we will have to do one at a time. So it will either be 4:30 or 5:30 but I will see if Sister Downey can text you while I'm at her house to let you know what time. (:

I'm really excited!!
Have some questions ready for me!!

Love always,

Your little Sister Missionary,
Sister Kellee Jo Walker
