My friends, Dorothy and Jillian, and myself took a
day trip to Vegas yesterday.
We had so much fun!
The Day was filled with
Baptisms for the Dead at the Las Vegas Temple,
Laughing so hard it resulted in wheezing for air,
Countless inside jokes,
Big City Driving/Parking,
the Belagio's Water Show,
Huge Slurpees for the way home
I didn't think that it would be so packed on a Tuesday, but it was!
Everyone was gearing up for the big New Year's Eve Party.
Can you imagine that?
Vegas on New Year's. You couldn't pay me to go on that night!
The contrast between the Temple and the Las Vegas Strip
is so extreme it makes the Temple seem just that much more peaceful.
As I was people watching, I was overwhelmed with the thought that we are all Children of God.
I was kinda sad thinking about how most people don't believe that,
but at the same time it made me amazingly grateful for the knowledge
of the true Gospel and my purpose here on Earth.
This trip was so much fun and it was definitely a missionary work motivator.
