AN LDS TEMPLE IN ROME, ITALY!!
i served a mission in rome from spring of '97
to december of '98.
of course i started screaming and running around the
kitchen. my kids ran in wondering what the deal was.
i told them and they joined in. i doubt they got it-
they jump on any excuse to scream and run around.
g and i have watched the announcement 8 times on the
internet. i can't get enough of it! i love the
reaction of all who were present!!
(to watch, click on the link above. go to the 4th frame,
'president thomas s. monson', and start @ 4:58)
i can't help but think back to the wonderful, faithful italian
church members who saved and then traveled such a long
distance to switzerland so they could receive the blessings
of the temple! i love them and hope to see them soon.
garrett and i plan to save up and travel to rome so we can
be there when they dedicate that beautiful building.
