Gilbert Temple Excitement
We had a great interview/zone conference. While we were there, President Toone told us all the exciting things and news about the Gilbert Temple. He said that all of the sisters would participate in the open house - - we will help out in the pavilion outside of the temple. The elders aren't allowed to do that, but what they're allowed to do is something I'd rather do! They get to go inside the temple before anyone else and move furniture. They'll get to go into rooms that lots of people will never go into. BUT, the best news is that the missionaries in the Tempe, Mesa and Gilbert missions will be the first ones to do ordinances in the new Gilbert temple! AND, the Prophet is coming to do the temple dedication, along with President Eyring. So, people are super excited and are getting ready! The youth have been practicing for their cultural dance and it's really exciting around here!
So, that's the most exciting thing here. This week has been super boring and we're still looking for people to teach. This is the slowest area I've been in and it's kid of frustrating, but I'm trying to stay positive! President Toone told me and Hermana M. that we'll be together until she goes home in January :)
