the happiest place on earth

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!  Even though I couldn´t be with my family, I am very happy to have had two birthdays now here in Argentina with these wonderful people.

I unfortunately do not have a lot of time to write out all of my feelings right now, but I would like for all of you to know how important the temple is to me.

We were able to help a few members be able to go to the temple this weekend, and being able to hear their testimonies yesterday was a beautiful birthday present. I was a little sad that I could not see these three families be sealed for time and all eternity, or see one of the future missionaries receive her endowments.  But I am forever grateful that I could hear their words and feel the joy in their hearts when they expressed what it was like to feel the presence of the Lord in His holy house. One of the mothers who was sealed to her family said ¨Hermana, I am so grateful that the elders found our family and brought the gospel to our lives.  Keep looking for more families so they can enjoy these beautiful blessings!!¨  I know that the temple is the most holy place on this earth.  I have a testimony of the Restoration of the gospel that brought us the priesthood and these saving ordinances.  I miss the temple terribly and can´t wait to go in April... but in the meantime I will be here working hard to find more families that are ready to live the gospel and slowly but surely take those steps to one day be sealed as a family for time and all eternity.

Love hermana hill mill
