As the time of my mission drew near I had the opportunity to work in the San Diego Temple as an ordinance worker. Some missionaries in our Stake, awaiting their report date to the MTC, are extended this call to serve. It is a privilege to have this opportunity to learn the deeper meaning of the temple and the ordinances and covenants that we partake in within it's walls. This was great preparation for the mission field. Today my official release came in the mail.
