Blessings of the Temple

Bethany attended the temple for the first time on August 27, 2009 in Redlands California. What a special evening it was to be in the temple surrounded by friends and family. The temple matron gave her a beautiful quote regarding missionaries taken from the Dedicatory Prayer.

"Our dear Father, we pray for a special blessing upon those who shall go forth from this house to teach the truths of the everlasting gospel at home and abroad. May they be endowed in this Thy house with Thy power, and wilt Thou be with them as Thou hast promised. Be on their right hand and on their left, and let Thy Holy Spirit be in their hearts, and Thine angels round about them to bear them up. Seal upon them the testimony of the covenant that they may go forth as messengers of eternal truth." ~President Hinckley, September 14, 2003.
