Trujillo Temple Open House on Saturday, May 16

1000s of people came to the Trujillo Temple today.
There were busses from Piura, Chimbote, Casma,Otusco and Huamachuco
 and people from Guadalupe, Cajamarca, Trujillo.

 It was an amazing site to see so many enter the doors of the House of the Lord. 
I was touched by the dedication and sacrifice of those who traveled, 8, 10 or 12 hours to see the temple, feel of the Spirit of the Lord,
walk on the temple grounds, have lunch on the grounds.
 They waited in lines with smiles on their faces, some with families and others with missionaries.

Look carefully and you will see Hermana Afoa, Hermana De Gracia, Elder Cano and Elder Garcia.
I couldn't resist this beautiful family.

 Elder Mendez, Elder Orihuela, Elder Calderon, and Elder Rodriguez.  
 Elder Cheal, Elder Boren, Elder Allen and Elder Lagrave with families from Casa Grande.
 An Extra special surprise today, Sister Huayton's family came to the temple from Lima.  Sister Huayton didn't know they were at the temple when we called her in to come work the morning shift.
She was so surprised and happy when she noticed her family at the door of the temple. 
She was able to go though the temple with them, and share her testimony of the temple.

Sister Hidalgo was also surprised today, she walked into the "Carpa de Video" to start the video and help the
guests get settled, and she saw her mother, sister, aunt and cousin in the room.
She also was able to enter the temple with her family.

 Elder Singh and Elder Andia with a wonderful family.
 Elder Alfaro with a family he taught and baptized. How nice to see them at the temple. 
This picture of Jesus with a small boy is in the "Carpa de Relection".

It was a wonderful day, full of joy, hope, spiritual feelings.
