Church Modge Podge

Our Church congregation is putting on a musical production called Savior to the World- His Resurrection, this weekend.
Jeff is playing the role of Peter and Annie Kate is an angel. Our congregation has only been working on it for a few months. It has been like a form of modgepodge to seal our church congregation together. Because of this play it is making it harder and harder to be able to leave here in a few weeks.
To say this has transformed our family would be an overstatement for Jeff but and understatement for me. I feel like we have been given a gift to have Jeff study the life of the Savior and the apostles and share what he has learned with all of us.

Jeff's parents surprised him tonight by coming to the dress rehearsal and will be here for all three shows. This is a photo I took the other night which is the final scene of the play. My heart is so full of emotion I really don't even know where to begin to write it all down. So I think I will save it for next week when it is all over and I can collect my thoughts.

If you are in the area and would like to come it is
Friday May 7th - 8:00 pm
Saturday May 8th 2:00 pm and 7:oo pm
16 Kent Gardens Circle, Gaithersburg Maryland

With Women's Conference last weekend and this play this weekend I fear my spiritual cup will spill over into a big wonderful mess! Lucky me!

I'm wishing I could jump on a flight to come and watch both Jeff and Annie perform. Please wish them the best from me and give them both a big hug! Love you!

Impressive set and costumes for a ward level. Have a great weekend!

How cool. A production about the Savior is what every congregation needs. I will be sad for you, too, when you leave the dear home you've known for these past few years. I have loved reading about your experiences with the young women and having a calling in the inner city ward to strengthen them. What a boost for your testimony.

And, um, about the lady vase? YIKES. It's definitely the eyes.

Love, bree

You make me want to hop back on a plane just to see this! I am not unpacked from last weekend!
So great to see you, Jill, and Michelle. I LOVED spending lunch with each of you and the conversation was great!
Same time next year for sure!
Love the new blog look! Now I see what I am missing when I use Google Reader! Good luck with the next few weeks!!!!!!

Was this just a ward idea? I think that it is so fantastic! What a wonderful blessing for all involved and all that watch!!! I am super impressed with the backdrop and costumes! Hope someone video tapes it! What a treasure to look back on.

Enjoy all these LASTS. As you have been enriched and blessed living there - your family has enriched and blessed those in your community and ward. It goes both ways. I am sure they are super sad to be loosing you guys too!

Remember, you can do hard things. In time (like a year or so...) you will be loving your new area (hello! And your new home! Think placemats!! ha) It doesn't make it easier - but this is what you have been working for all these years.
Hang tight!

Lucky you is right! As my week has progressed I have lost much of that tenderness I felt last weekend, and I am so sad about it. Having this play as a follow up to Women's Conference is a gift for sure!

Your pictures are wonderful, everything looks so well done.

That first photo is just phenomenal! I love that your ward was ambitious enough to take on this huge project, and that it has been so transformative for the ward and for your family. What a blessing. And so wonderful that Jeff's parents came and surprised him! (I'm a little jealous that they get to see Pedro in person.)

Having this as a follow-up to Women's Conference is a great thing indeed. I'm having to fight to hold on to my tender feelings and motivation from last week.
