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

Oh hey there fam bam. 

It's almost HALLOWEEN! Yay! 

What are ya'll dressing up as for Halloween? Hopefully something super rad. 
Also, Keaton's birthday is comin up pretty soon.. what are ya'll doin for that? 
I sent a package today for him so keep your eyes out for that 
& make sure he doesn't open it until his birthday. 

OH! and i think i remember you talking about meeting sister bishop's family when you went to the Killpack's homecoming..

well sister bishop asked me to be her roommate!! I'll have to think about it and figure all that out.. but we'll see. 
She is a super sweet sister and I wouldn't mind! She goes home in like 2 weeks!  As for Hawaii, I AM SO EXCITED! 

I think it's finally hitting me that I'm coming home.. And to be honest, i'm kinda flippin out. I'm trying so hard to be focused but man, I miss you all so muuuuch!  But even though i'm a wee bit distracted, the work rolls on!

We found a new investigator in Desert Willow ward named Manny!!  He had taken the lessons before and so he knew who we were!  But it was so funny because he answered the door and seemed really confused.. Then he started laughing and was all like, "Ohhhh Mormon girls?!?? I need to show my wife! This is too funny! Hohoho Hehehe Look honey! There are girl missionaries too!!" Then we had a good lesson with him and committed him to come to church! (:  But.. he didn't show up. So goes the life of a missionary.

Then we set 2 baptismal dates with Julani and her mom Julia (: They are investigators that we had been trying to get a hold of for a long time and never were able to But then we stopped by randomly and she was home!! So they have a date for November 22nd (:   Pray for their family!! 

Annnnd we had zone conference this week!!!  We got to watch the movie that the church came out with called Meet the Mormons!! IT WAS SOOOO GOOD! Did you get to see it? If not, make sure you take time to go see it. And take some friends!  Maybe like Jerry and Colleen (: Get those silly people back to church!  

I also got called on again to give the 5 minute talk.  I am pretty sure it's an ongoing joke with the APs that they call on me every time. I've had the opportunity to be called on the last 2 zone conferences. YAY   Oh and mom, you will be so thrilled. Sister Passey made EVERY missionary get a mandatory flu shot. Now we are all going to get Ebola. HAHAHA jk jk i don't know anything about what's going on in the world.   It's kinda entertaining to get all the missionaries together and hear the newest rumors.. hahaha 

Anyways, my time is about up again.. Time goes to fast on monday's. I love you all so so so much!
And i am so grateful for this time i have to be a missionary& for all that i'm learning. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and I feel His love everyday. This gospel is true and I know it with all my heart. 

Have a great week! 
Love you lots. 

Love always, Sister Walker

Another Week Closer

Hey fam bam (: 
What a crazy week yo. 

I got a letter from kylee this week and she filled me on Michalla's passing. I don't know what it is about people dying while i'm on my mission but it's emotionally exhausting. No one else better pass away while i'm out here, or I might just loose it. But it was so great for kylee to tell me all about her funeral and i felt very grateful that kylee went to the funeral for me. And she told me all about her wedding.. ahhh i was flippin out. 

As for this week, we've been trying really hard to get things rollin in Desert Willow ward and Cienega ward but it's proving to be difficult. But we'll keep tryin!! Sister Huffman and I are best friends!! I am so grateful for her. She is a convert of 2 years and she reminds me so much of Austins conversion story. She is great (: 

We got permission from President Passey to go with Cienega ward to the Gila valley temple on Saturday and HOLY CRAP it was so needed. I can't even explain to you how much I love it there. I can't wait to take you there one day! It's little and adorable just like the Oquirrh Mountain temple. You will love it. 

Well, I sure do love you. 
And i'll talk with you soon!!

Love always,
Bucket hea

Sister Kellee Walker's Tuscon, Arizona Mission - October 14, 2014

I am pooped out...literally

Hey there family.
This week was odd to say the least. I got freakin food poisoning from some old mayo.. 
Had a fever of 102.4 and everything that's included with your body trying to get rid of sick nasties.
That was on wednesday and thursday. Then we had car problems and we've been to the car shop in tucson 3 times this week.. Hahahah tis the life of sistah walker. 

Things are good now though (:  Sister Huffman is great & she took good care of me. 
And I got a blessing from elder Taylor. That was prime. 

I don't have a lot of time but just know that things are good and i am happy (: I'll be looking for your paaaaackage!!

Have a great week folks. 

Love always,
Sister Kellee Walker

What a Random Week

Hey family!! These computers are killer slow..
So I don't have a lot of time after emailing president, but here is my week in a nut shell. (: 

We moved me into our new home in Vail.  And holy craaaaaap it's adorable. 
Members own the house and we live in a little side home. I absolutely love it to pieces.
We have our own washer and dryer and a nice amount of space (:

Elder Taylor is in my zone (: We won't get into that, but he's trouble. 
Best of friends in the same zone = PARTY
You're gunna really like him.

I DONATED BLOOD! (: Yeeee it was awesome. I was a little nervous but i asked the poor lady so many questions and holy cow.. it's so cool.

We visited all the ward council members in both Desert Willow and Cienega. And tried a whole crunk load of potentials and former's. They are teaching one person between both wards.. and i'm like, Buckle up!!
We already have a few people who are interested. it's just a matter of getting a hold of them.

General Conference was AWESOME!! It's like a holiday for every missionary. I loved every moment of it (: (:

Sister Huffman is amazing. We are already super close! She reminds me so much of Marciline the Vampire on Adventure time. Hahaha But really, I love her. I'm doing her follow up training and there's a lot of things her trainer left out, so I feel like i'm training a little bit. But I don't mind (: I love being a missionary (:

Things have been interesting!! I hope I have more time next week to tell you more.


Love always,
Sister Walker
