Tackle It Tuesday Meme
So what do you tackle while on vacation? Today I was excited to go somewhere that I have always wanted to visit but it seemed as if time had always run out. Before Marc went to the airport we were able to take a tour at the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint's Humanitarian Center and Welfare Square. I am just so sad that I have not made it a point in my past to have visited these incredible places before. What an amazing spirit we were all able to feel. We were able to see how clothes were sorted and prepared for others in the world that are in need of clothing. We were also able to see and feel the spirit of the different kits and projects the church accepts. It was so fun to walk through these great buildings and see pictures of my dad, or pictures he has taken as he has served the world. At Welfare square we were able to see wet cannery. They were canning spaghetti sauce... Oh it smelled so good. There are also facilities to process milk, cheese, and bread. I am so grateful to have been able to have this sweet experience today.

If I didn't have the service bug before today, I sure do now!

I can't believe you have not aged since our mission. I have to dye out my gray hair

That is so cool. What a neat thing to see the pictures of your dad. I bet the kids thought that was cool. I love to hear you parents' stories. They give such a new perspective on how blessed we are and how we should serve more.
