If you weren't able to make it to movie night on Tuesday night you REALLY missed out.
Vicki wasn't only nice enough to welcome us into her home but she also fulfilled her promise to feed us and provided cafe rio! :)This month's movie was 17 Miracles, a MUST see!! It was so touching, emotional, and inspiring. I loved hearing all the stories and seeing how much FAITH the pioneers had as they walked to Zions. It really was a GREAT film. Thanks again Vicki.
