Sister Kelly's Summer Adventures

Lunch with my friends from the Oakton Ward

Hey Everyone - 

So much happened this week that I don't even know where to start. This week went by really fast. Church was great yesterday, as always. We drove a lot this week but got a lot of work done. We are trying to clean out our area book and we've seen a lot of success because of it. We had some amazing lessons this week with people along with some effective, as always, meetings with the Ward Council. I love our Ward Council to pieces. 

One great thing that happened this week was teaching a less-active in our ward. She is not from this country and has been struggling with some things; so we decided to stop by and see her. She is in the process of moving. So, when we arrived, there was no furniture. The room was pretty much bare. We ended up watching "The Restoration" which is a 20 min. film about Joseph Smith and his experience of restoring the Gospel of Jesus Christ here on the Earth. Don't know what it was, but something about watching the film, via the ipad, on a bare living room floor, was a wonderful, spiritual experience. The spirit was so strong and I am so grateful for Joseph Smith. 

Met up with Sister Rossi and her companion to go to breakfast with a ward member we were close to in Oakton and her awesome daughter. Such a great reunion! 

I tried to have another Costco Connection, but it was a bust. A failed attempt. My companion and I THOUGHT a Costco was located near to a teaching appointment we had that was quite far away from where we live. All I wanted to do was go there for lunch! We  ended up getting really lost and to say, we almost drove 80 miles that day. Yikes. We eventually found a Costco...only about 30 min. away from home. 

Love you all!

Sister Kelly
