Where Two or Three Are Gathered

Dear family, 

Interesting things that happened this week:

- Viaje al Temple (Temple Trip). We had to be at the temple at 8am on Wednesday, so we spent Tuesday night in Bani with all the other hermanas in our zone - all 14 of us in one tiny house - then we got up early and caught a guagua (bus) to the capital. It was a wonderful day. We got to visit with all the other missionaries. Before the session, we had a devotional with the temple president in the Solemn Assembly Room. It was a very special and unique experience. President Nuckols had to get permission from President Monson himself to let us all in.

- Yesterday we decided to attend church in Sabana Large, where the elders work. It's a 20 minute ride away - if you can a bola (ride). They hold church a 4pm in a liceo (high school) and there were about 15 people in attendance. We got to see a family who got baptized the previous day confirmed as members. Afterwards, we went over to their house for spaghetti, watermelon, and hobo (a fruit). There is such a special spirit in the tiny little church meetings in places like Sabana Larga and Parra. It has taught me that the church can flourish no matter where it is planted. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them"(Matthew 18:20). 

All my love,

P.S. Today there are exactly 100 days until I come home:)
