LETTER FROM JORDAN - WEEK 48 (5/4/15)
First of all, I would like to apologize for not being able to send my weekly letter last week. But this week is going to make up for it!
So officially this week, the Temple Open House starts on May 8th! So we are completely focused on inviting and getting every one ready for this amazing event.
In the spirit of getting prepared for the temple, our stake had an activity last Saturday morning where they invited all of the priesthood leaders from each of the wards and all of the missionaries in the stake.
To start off the activity, they talked about the importance of unity in each ward, and that the missionaries shouldn't be doing all of the work in the ward. To teach us how to work in a team, they had us build mini temples. They gave us all of the materials and the dimensions and we got to work.
It turned out really well, and learned that we had to have some one to direct us to make it more efficient.
Afterward, we all traveled to the Temple, and we were able to (for the first time) enter the Temple Grounds. I literally took more than 70 pictures of the temple that day, but here are a few of the best ones:
Walking around the temple helped me realize the actuality that we are going to have a temple in Trujillo! There is an amazing Spirit with this building that helps me remember the feelings that I had going through the temple for the first time.
In every moment we have to talk and teach the people here, we always mention the temple. And every time we do talk about it, every one tells us of their desires to go inside. Maybe it's just out of curiosity, but learning more about the eternal blessings that can be recieved there will help every one understand their real purpose in this life.
Well, that's about all I got for this week, and I will make sure to write back the next!
