Mary and I have been wanting to get to the temple for a long time and we FINALLY made an appointment and went! Our oppointment was at 2:30 so we left the orphanage at about 10:30 giving ourselves 4 hours for a 2 1/2 or 3 hour trip on chicken busses. We got on a bus in Chimaltenango to Guatemala City, I´d also like to add that although the chicken busses are packed full, smelly, scary, and discusting, i´ve really come to love taking them everywhere! It was kind of a complicated 3 hour, 3 different bus trip, but with a lot of help from what seemed to be guiding angels sent to get us to the temple we found it. We acctually met and talked to a member on the way too!
When we got into the temple I told the man that we were talking to that I was the granddaughter of Predident and Sister Latimer, and there were very excited about that. I had to hold back my tears when talking about my grandparents and giving everyone an update because of how excited and touched I was to be standing where they served and to think about how much I love and admire them! It was a pretty amazing experience that I will never forget. I was glowing and felt so proud to have such amazing examples and I was so happy to be there! I could feel the love that everyone had for them and I was told from them to give my Grandparents lots of hugs! So they better watch out when I get home because I´ve got lots of love to give them when I get home!
I love to see the temple, I´m going there someday!We got asked so many times if we were sister missionaries by countless people inside and outside the temple, it was a big compliment! I was way excited that we looked like missionaries, Mary needs to practice, she will be a missionary in January!! Who knows, maybe I´ll be a missionary too someday! We did baptisms with a nice group of youth from a ward near the temple, and everyone thought it was pretty funny that I didn´t speak very much spanish, but I did my best!
