Family Home Evening last week was held in the Cathedral that we walk past every day on our way to work. It is where the remains of St. Martin are entombed. The Cathedral is absolutely gorgeous and huge. We arrived early and were able to walk around and take some photos. Below is a photo of some of us who attended, the Nielsen's, Holtkamp's, Andersen's and Roth's. Others sat farther back. 
  The reason we were in the Cathedral was to attend a concert performed by some people from Wales that were touring. Their music was absolutely stunning. We had a great evening including dinner at Tomatilla's.

The next day was spent at the Buenos Aires Temple and was such a special day. We left home around 7 a.m. and didn't get back until around 4. The temple is out away from the city and takes awhile to get to because of all the traffic. We took the subway to one stop  and then walked a few blocks to a school, where a small bus picked us up and took us to the temple. There were about 12 of us who went, including several sisters who were temple              

We did initiatory work when we first arrived. It was a beautiful experience listening to all the sacred promises in Castellano. 

Then we went through a session.  Dean and I were priveledged to be the witness couple. I was a bit nervous because everything would be done in Spanish.  I concentrated 
on the words more than I ever have so that I would always know right where we were and what I should be doing. I'm very grateful for all the time I have spent in the temple so that I knew the words and what to do.  I made it through just fine and can't wait to go back!

  1. Thanks for sharing your experiences! I'd like to try the stretched ice cream cone, and I'm impressed that you understand the session in Spanish. Great job!
