Stake Conference today was at Estaca de La Libertad...
I really do have other clothes here. This is my Conference outfit, and since we go to many different stake conferences and different people are there, I wear it often. We've just started our second round of the stakes.
The members love to greet us...but I'm busy taking the photo while they greet the president first, then they also greet me.
"Mucho gusto!" "El gusto es mio." I've got that down pat.
Here's another...Bishop Ortiz was our new temple coordinator for the Saturday afternoon/evening shift, but he has just been called as a bishop.
Right after this hermano greeted Walt, a young woman came and proudly said: "This is my grandfather."
Families like this ride in the back of pickups to get to Church and other places.
I took a photo of the Alfaros by the temple when they drove us back to our apartment. It was only about an 8-10 minute drive from their stake center to the temple grounds.
One quote for understanding about the temple I shared in my talk today is by Brigham Young: “Your endowment is, to receive all
those ordinances in the house of the Lord, which are
necessary for you, after you have departed this life, to
enable you to walk back to the presence of the Father,
passing the angels who stand as sentinels, being enabled to
give them the key words, the signs and tokens, pertaining to
the holy Priesthood, and gain your eternal exaltation...” (Discourses of Brigham Young, sel. John A. Widtsoe [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1941], p. 416).
