A Poem by Elder McClelland

Elder McClelland, from Texas, wrote this poem as he sat thinking about the temple.  What a wonderful expression of his purpose as a missionary.

Peru Trujillo

Walking down the beach
I stop to teach
a family of four
comes to the door.
We explain what`s right
about God`s hope and light.

We begin to pray
to know the right way.
They start to ask
what`s God`s great task.
So we teach God`s plan
that yes it`s the eternal life of man.

We`ve gotten to the date
and they`ve stopped the wait.
All dressed in white.
O how great a sight!
Their sins are washed away
on this very sweet day.

They received the Holy Ghost
and now they`re headed to the coast.
The goal is made
now that the foundation is laid.
They are temple bound
where only eternal families are found.

Elder McClelland and his companion, Elder Winterton, with the Yarleque Family on their special day.
