Christmas Devotional

This evening was the temple Christmas Devotional.  It was at the Primavera building and we were asked to go early to help Carlos get a few thing ready.  We arrived at 4:00 pm while I helped fold programs. Wayne helped Carlos get the ushers ready for the meeting. 

Wayne stood by the funeral door and greeted the VIP's attending the meeting,  he enjoyed it.   I was given the assignment to stand by the outside door and greet the people as they arrived.  I loved doing this because I was able to see and hug all of our temple friends as they got to the meeting, but wasn't able to take pictures.  I was amazed because I knew almost every one.  It was fun to feel their love and excitement for the meeting.  I love these sweet temple workers.   
Elder Gudoy, our area authority was the speaker.  I didn't understand much, but I think it was good.

After the temple meeting concluded, Another one started for the Bishoprics, I thought it was funny to see Miguel leading the music as they sand to start the meeting.

When we got back to our ap[artment, there was a group of people from Piura still there waiting until 11:30 pm for their 6 hour ride home.  I thought it was funn to llisten to Wayne talk to them, he is a great guy.  

Brother and Sister Ramapi work at the temple. They had been to the devotional and were waiting to go home too.  Sister Ramapi gave me a little coin purse made out of a zipper.  When I unzip it,  it's just a zipper but when I zip it up, it makes a little coin pouch.  Pretty cleaver.
