EFY-2009

This year, LeGrand and I were able to be Session Directors for EFY (especially for youth) again. We did the Las Vegas 2 session and had a blast!! The kids had the time of their lives playing with Grandma for a week and we didn't even have to worry about them... we knew they were in good hands. Thanks Mom!!! We can never thank you enough! We love you! Without your service to us we would never be able to do this!!
This week was INCREDIBLE!!! One of the reasons it was so awesome was because my little sister Whitney was there as a participant. Whitney is seriously one of my very best friends and LeGrand and I could seriously just take her home! Whitney you are an amazing Young Woman! We love and admire you!! Thanks for putting up with us for a week. Two of my cousins were also there, Shaylin Rasmussen and Stephen Alexander. My dad was also a speaker there with us too, so it was sort of like a family reunion!! It was Awesome! We love you guys so much!!

Here were some highlights from our week. Of Course the first one what being able to be with LeGrand all week long!! I love this man. I'm so lucky to be his eternal companion! I love listening to him speak and watch him be with the youth. He has a true gift and I love him for it.

Dances....


Pizza Night-including a pudding eating contest with no hands. I swear I could smell chocolate pudding for the next 24 hours....gross!!

Shaylin busting a move in the variety show.
Cousin time!
Hanging out with the youth is so awesome!! Seriously there are so many amazing youth in this world/church!! I'm grateful for the examples they are to us!! They give me hope for the future!!
Sister time!!
Hubby time!!
This was our Coordinators and BC's and Health Councilors....They are the ones that truly made this week unforgettable!!
The Family Reunion
Last but not least are all the councilors and staff!! We love you guys!!

The main reason that I love being involved in EFY is to see so many people develop a stronger relationship with our Father in Heaven. I know that God lives and that he loves each one of us!!! This church is true and I'm grateful to be a part of it!!!

What an amazing experience! I LOVED going to EFY as a youth! The spirit was always so strong. I always came home feeling so "full". I would LOVE to go back and get a good hearty spiritual pick me up with no distractions. And to be able to enjoy that with your husband is SUCH a blessing! I'm so glad you were able to go! You look so great Becca! We need to get together sometime!
