What a Treat.






Saturday, February 14, 2009 I attended a session at the Accra Ghana temple with my Father. It was a sweet experience. I was so grateful I could end my African adventure in the temple. I was in awe of its beauty inside. The colors we soft and peaceful. I was amazed at the original artwork on display as we walked the halls. The gold leafing was exact. Kente cloth pattern was found around every corner. The stained glass resembled the traditional Kente. Never before have I attended a temple where I found more tradition and culture displayed in the design.
I am most grateful to be able to attend the temple. I am grateful to be able to be a service to my sisters on the other side of the veil. This particular session I was able to serve a sister who lived over a hundred years ago in Missouri. I was almost giddy when I saw Missouri of all places on my card!
Maybe this was my favorite part of the trip.

Visiting temple in different countries is wonderful. We attended the Tahiti Temple (French Polynesia)in July/08 was an experience.

wow. That does sound cool how they included the native culture inside the temple, and HOW curious that you got a name of someone from Missourri!
