Dad, Thanks for all the pictures!
From what I've heard our branch president said life would be better if they could just sit and watch TV for the whole next two weeks while the Olympics are on. The temple is only 2 1/2 hours away so its definitely do-able to go every month. I'm hoping that the ward will start going every month. If not we'll definitely be the ones to organize it.
I love that you have a better appreciation for Dantes Hell as you were in Charleston. That made me laugh out loud. So on Monday we were going door to door and having a really hard time finding people who would just listen to us for a bit. Sister Tidwell said a prayer in her heart unbeknownst to me as we were dooring that Heavenly Father would bless us with something and then 10 minutes later we klingeled a lady and talked to her about faith and prayer. She said she was really interested and asked us if there was another time we could come by. It was really neat to see how the Lord wants to help if you just ask. We shared that with our ward as our spiritual thought on Sunday with Phillipians 4:6 to remember to always give thanks in all that you ask for and remember to give the glory back to Heavenly Father. It was a neat experience.
We got to go to XXXXXXX wedding on Friday in the Rathaus, or city hall, and it was interesting to notice how there really is no eternal authority outside the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was such a strange ceremony. I'm very grateful that we can be sealed for time and all eternity.
