Manti Temple

This morning at 5:00am, we met at the church to go to the Manti Temple and do Baptisms for the Dead. It was SO EARLY but we had a great turn-out. The drive to the temple was great. It was so dark but there were really no others cars on the road so we made excellent time.
We had 30 youth and like 15 leaders and our whole Bishopric there. The temple President talked to us for a few minutes and then the kids got changed and proceeded to do the work for those who have already passed on. It was a great experience for everyone and things went really smoothly.
I was happy to see snow falling as we were going out to our cars. We had a group photo shoot and it was COLD!!!
I am so glad that I got to have this experience with Alexa. I feel so blessed to be part of the Young Women's organization and I am grateful for the youth of our ward.
The weather was fine on the drive home and we all met at the church for muffins. It was a great way to start out our day.
