When Music and the Spoken Word is over the Sisters Temple Square Choir stands out side of the Tabernacle to share some of their favorite hymns. It is really special to hear them every Sunday. They are really great.
Once a Month the Sisters put a special program, "Come unto Christ" where they sing and share their testimonies. We are going to attend tonight again. Next week the Spanish Sisters will also put on the same program in their language.
The Sisters meet the Guests out side of the Tabernacle to give them a opportunity to attend a Tour. They hold signs up and greet the guests in the language they speak, and invite them to go on Tours with that language. The Sisters are able to speak up to thirty five different languages. Their are many Sisters that can speak many languages. We have a new Sister from Mongolia who can speak English, French, Russian, Japanese and of course Mongolian. There is a Sister from Switzerland who can speak English, French, and Italian. Most of the Sister Missionaries have to learn a new language when they come here, English.
We have made a new friend on the Square, Jamone Pili. He has received a Mission call to serve in Somoa. The the original land of his family. He had been a Member of the Church for only a year. His Father is a Minister of another Christian Church and is opposed to his son going on this mission. When he submitted his papers for the mission he received a reply that he was too over weight to go, that he needed to loose a least forty five pounds to be able to go on a mission. This special young man met the mark, lost forty five pounds and is going next week.
Mom was thrilled to get a yellow Rose yesterday. The was a group of young people on the square who were going to a dance at their High School that night. They were on the Square as a part of a group to do some thing special before the dance. They all brought Roses here and gave they out to some one who had a special experience that they would share. We told them about the Nauvoo Mission. We got a Rose. The young people then spent time sharing with each other the stories they heard. Our young people are very special.
