Girls camp

I had a great time at camp this year. It was all surprises, but i knew a lot of the secrets. The first day was in Gilbert, and we did baptisms for the dead. After the baptisms, we went all around Gilbert doing random things to get our next clue in the race. My team didn't get first place, but we got second!

The second day we woke up at 4 to go on a hike, and we got to walk by the phoenix temple which was really cool. Then we drove to Flagstaff and went canoeing for a while.  Then we drove to the camp and set everything up.

The third day, we went to Flagstaff Extreme, which is a rope course that gets about 60 feet in the air! This had different levels, and i made it all the way through! Not very many people did it because it was tiring and really high. After that, we did skits. Mine was a movie about evil grandmas who offer poisonous  cookies, so if i offer you a fake cookie, thats why.

The last day, i woke up really early with my friend Anna, and we chased squirrels for at least an hour. The leaders were not happy, because we were screaming a little. then, we packed all of our stuff, and drove home;)

We are as the army of helamen

culteral celebration

 I am proud to say that I was a part of the Gilbert temple cultural celebration. This celebration was really special to me because I know it was a once in a life time opportunity. The prophet seemed very pleased with our performance even though it was rainy and cold. This day was amazing and super cool because there were so many people there and they were all there for the same reason. To perform for the prophet. So many people put so much time and effort into making the cultural celebration perfect, and even though people ( including me ) slipped, it was still perfect. I know that some people thought it was so hard to sing and dance in the rain, but seriously it was for the PROPHET! I am very happy with how everything worked out and I know that some people's testimonies were shaken, but not mine.
