MY BELOVED FRIENDS
In memory of God's hand throughout the coarse of my mission in Washington DC - I will be speaking in church Sunday the 24th at 1:00 pm at the Boulder City Chapel (1550 Buchanan Blvd, Boulder City NV). All are welcome to come!
There will also be a Barbecue Open House Saturday night the 23rd from 6:00-9:00 pm of which all are invited. It'll be at the Jeppsen home (1541 Sunrise Circle, Boulder City NV). It would be great to see everyone. I am forever grateful for your support, prayers, and love.
LOVE JULIA JEPPSEN
To all our Dear, Wonderful Family and Friends,
I can't express how great it was to be able to go meet many of the people Julia has been talking about for the past 18 months! Truly MIRACLES happened to make it such a fabulous experience. Thanks to your prayers and the grace of our God, I recovered from my head injury just in time to go. John and Emma joined me and it is an experience that can never be replaced. The timing of so many special events was a blessing. I'll tell the story with pictures...

|Farewell to the Wonderful Mission President Riggs and his wife at the Mission Home.|
|We got to sit in on the Mission Transfer Meeting where all the departing missionaries bore their testimonies. They also sang a song... "Joy to the World" and then "I'll be Home for Christmas" (cruel but too funny!)|
|Visiting the Ritchies. Go Launching Leaders!|
|Visit with Wonderful Jeff.|
|Lessons/Visits with Recent Converts: Anderson, Isaiah, Luis, Sonia. |

|Essential Stop... McDonalds!|
|We got to visit with John's Brother and his sweet family. Five beautiful Jeppsen Girls!|
|We went to the Gorgeous Washington DC Temple for Baptisms with her Converts.|
|We got to experience Chunyu's Baptism. We got to hear Julia speak. She was confirmed that day so she could go to the temple for baptisms that night.|
|At the church we got to see Jeff and Nghia sing in the Choir. John and I both had tears falling!|
|We stayed with one of her adoptive families, the wonderful Starks in Centreville.|
Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers!!! Julia loved her mission and has grown so very much. It is amazing what serving the Lord 100% of their time for 18-24 months will do! I am grateful for her willingness to serve God's children and in the process become more like Him. As Julia says often, "God is good". He truly is good and good to us. I love you dearly!
