    Our son is in the Mission Field in Tegucigalpa City now and returns home on Thursday. He is honored to have been serving there at such an important time in the country's history and participate in the dedication and the open house. They have been bringing busses from many neighborhoods of people who wanted to tour the temple including many dignitaries. He personally brought the head of the central bank to the open house. It is already producing countless new opportunities for the church in this humble country filled with wonderful good people.

    To think of the people from Central America had to go to the Mesa Temple in the early days and usually by bus was such a sacrifice about a week one way. The Philippines got a temple in Manila and some took a week by boat to get there. In Venezuela the members went through several countries and all types of roads to get to the Lima Peru Temple and from the southern and eastern parts of Venezuela to Brazil by boats and buses for 7 days.

    Members are so thankful for a temple in their proximity, even seven days travel. They sacrifice to get there and hold sacred those feelings and experiences. I remember people in the Philippines drawing straws to see which one from their family would go to a regional conference. The blessings of the Internet are stronger than the disadvantages to bring the messages to the people in word and mouth.

    Tegucigalpa-Comayaguela's hills can be such a beautiful location for a temple. People's sacrifices for 60 years have brought forth the fruit of their labors. Having lived there the people are beautiful and faithful. I am grateful for their reward and sacrifice.
