Be Thou An Example: EFY 2oo9

I can't believe the two weeks of my most favorite part of the summer has come and gone already!
Can I even begin to explain how amazing EFY was? Probably not, but here's a shot:
I spent the last 2 weeks with the greatest kids in the whole entire world! I could talk about it for hours, but in short- I have grown and learned so much from the youth of this church. They are such an example to me! It just goes to show how true this gospel is and how it can bless and change lives. I continue to learn everyday by their example.
I had an amazing 2 weeks with amazing co- counselors and amazing youth! It was so fun to meet back up with friends that I haven't seen since last summer too!

Week 1: I was with Jeremy and Philip and we had 16-18 year olds. Our group name was Verily, Verily- and we had the BEST group ever! Saying they were so awesome is an understatement. From Day 1 we knew we would have an amazing week, and it really was.

Week 2: I was with Drew and Nina and we had the 14-15 year olds. Our group was named Do Not Procrastinate- in short.. DNP. A different atmosphere and they were at a different level, but it still was an amazing week! These kids were crazy and so entertaining! I loved it! My little brother, Cody, also came for the first time ever so it was fun to be around him! We were a little more exhausted and my voice was gone all week- but it was still a lot of fun!

I'm sad to see my EFY summer come to a close, but I have learned a lot and my testimony has grown even more! I've also been able to make new friendships- my co-workers were AWESOME! We had a lot of laughs over these past two weeks and memories that I will always cherish! I love this church and the happiness it brings to me and others! It's a blessing to have programs like EFY to bring us all together; it gives us a little reminder about why this church is so awesome :)I feel blessed and privledged to be a part of this experience.

Side Note: Let's just say I have wayyyy too many pictures- so if you want to see more, just look at my facebook :)
