All missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are counseled to go to a place held sacred by all Latter-day Saints... the Holy Temple. Here, members in good standing, are taught in sacred matters pertaining to their own eternal salvation. The Missionary Guy (Lee Woods) went to the Temple here in Idaho Falls, ID for the first time last week. There was much to learn for not only Lee but for all of us in attendance. As Lee and his family were being taught, you could feel how near God was. I know Lee could feel it by the look of peace on his face.
Photos inside the Temple are not allowed so I included some pictures of the outside and the surrounding gardens. At the entrance, above the door, words tell patrons how special this "House of God" really is. These words read in totality : Holiness to the Lord; House of the Lord.

P.S. - Lee left for his mission in Guatemala last Tuesday, August 5. Our house is not the same without him. Too quiet.
