Back from EFY!!!

Hi, I'm so excited to be home again!!! I had a lot of fun and lots of spiritual experiences at EFY, but its always nice to come home. I don't have the pictures I took on the computer yet, so I'll just put them on when I do girls camp pictures. I get to pack tomorrow and then leave again on Tuesday. I wish it had been earlier in the year, but I'm still excited. This year is my fourth year and we are going on an overnight backpacking trip. That means I have to send most of my stuff home with a friend thats not a fourth year.
At EFY we spent almost all day in the institute building/chuch building at the U of U. The spirit was always so strong it was amazing. I learned a lot about the holy ghost just by feeling the spirit so much. I met lots of fun people and got almost everyone in my company's e-mail and phone number. I deffinatly feel like I am a stronger person spiritually.
The dances were soooo much fun!! There were lots of cute guys and some preety good songs. They had some dumb ones too, but thats only to be expected. It got really hot too. It was about 90 degrees all week so even with the a/c on in the gym everyone was sweating. I had to go to the bathroom and wash my arms and hands a few times.
At lunch every day we had some form of chicken. It was slightly funny, but mostly annoying. We had 3 kinds of chicken wraps, and chicken tacos. The last day was the only day we didn't have chicken. We had a turkey sandwich. But then at the banquet that night we had.... chicken!!! Acutally the chicken at the banquet was yummy. It had soy sauce or something on it with pineapple. There was also rice with cocconut wich was really good. I got to spend a lot of time with my friends from CO and Las Vegas. I really hope I can do something with them again next year!!!!


  1. Kelsey, I came across your blog. Sounds like you had an incredible time at EFY. I enjoyed your testimony you shared in YW and in sacrament meeting. You are an amazing young lady. Have a blast at girls camp. I'll be excited to hear all about it. :)

  2. I am so glad that EFY was a success for you. I still remember going to EFY with Melissa when we were 14/16. Great memories filled with the spirit and enjoying meeting other LDS youth. Hope you enjoy the backpacking and Girls' Camp. Sounds like you have had a great summer even though we missed you coming to our house. I guess I will survive!
