Sunday, the day we get ready for the week

We decided to go on the Metro to Church today. We started early so we would get there really early and be able to meet people. We got lost on the walking part not the Metro part and got there 10 minutes late which was okay because they hadn't started yet. The Bishop had us stand in sacrament meeting and introduce ourselves. After church we took the bus home a new adventure but it dropped us off right in front of the place we live and we could see more of what is around us. We decided to invite 4 of the Barlow interns over for dinner so we can get to know them better.  That was fun we had Sean Peterson, Luke Foster, Elise Leavitt, and Ashley Lovell. We didn't know this but they all have internships with Senitors. Senitors Harry Reed, Senitor Lee and Senitor Chauvet. Right after we got the dishes cleaned up we left for a fireside at the visitor center at the temple.  They have a huge theathers in there and it was packed.  It is for new members and investigators. It is called why I believe.  They had prayers given by new coverts. There were three people that bore their testimony. They have been baptized in the last couple of months. They introduced all those that had been baptized in the last month. Then Meredith Casto and her husband Randall Casto talked abouth there conversion. They were both trained ministers. She had to take off her priestly robes tobe to be a Mormon. She talked about how she alway felt hungry for more and felt that she would not be filled until the next life until she joined the Church.  He always asked the question so what.  You could tell they were trained speakers they were great. Next month is one the Raven football players that has joined the church recently.  It was so good.  I love the Washington DC temple. It looked so magificent tonight.  We took three Barlow interns with us.  We just got home a few minutes ago and it is almost ten so today has been a long very wonderful day.

  1. I miss the DC temple and that visitors center. We went faithfully every month for 3 years. The latest session was something insane like 9 PM. Our stake in Southern VA was the highest attending in that temple region at the time--and it takes in a huge area! I just loved being able to walk out of that temple at like midnight. So cool. So many hours spent on the grounds and in the park nearby. (Orlando's latest session on a Saturday night is a PATHETIC 3 PM)

  2. That is pretty amazing that they were willing to leave their prestigious roles in their church to become members of our church.
