We started off our trip with a high point! While making a change in planes at Dallas, we met and talked with some missionaries coming home from Argentina. One was a Sister Eyring. They sat right in front us on the plane and when we got off, guess who was there to meet her (and Sveta)!
One of Sveta's dreams was to go through a temple session in the Salt Lake Temple. We met Caprise and her sister and took in a session first thing. It was wonderful.
Afterward, we took some time to see some sites of Temple Square. My favorite place is the Christus statue and we took Sveta there first.
We then took a tour of the Convention Center.
It is beautiful.
They have a waterfall . . .
and a roof top full of trees and flowers.
This bust of President Monson was brand new, just put on display the week we were there!
We were blessed to have a sister serving there that had majored in Russian so she was our tour leader. She was able to practice her Russian with Sveta.
