Great week on Temple Square

It’s been a great week here on temple square. I started working in check reconciliation on Monday. One nice thing about working in this department is that the websites we use here don’t break down so much. In member locator, one of the websites we often used would quit working several times each day.

In ticketing, we started taking phone calls for tickets for the orchestra at Temple square concerts next month. We are still getting phone calls for her general conference, but we must respectfully decline their requests. Next week we start to take calls for the Phoenix temple open house.

I also started working at the front desk on Wednesday afternoons this week. It’s nice to meet so many different people.

Thursday evening was of chorus MoTab rehearsal. They’ll perform a patriotic broadcast because our special guests is the president’s own United States marine band. The brass and percussion of the band is on tour and will stop here in the valley tonight.

I attended the temple yesterday. It was a great time. I did do initiatories as well. I enjoy the opportunity to serve those were not able to do their own work here in this life. I’m researching how to best get to the Ogden temple next week so I can see the film again. I think I might do that once or twice a month.

I enjoyed Elder Broderick’s devotional this week. One of our scriptures was from 2 Samuel 22:1-4.  Through this passage of scripture he likened our theme for this month, trust in the Lord, to faith. Then, he gave the definition of trust, which is to have a faith or a confidence in in someone or something. So when we truth the Lord, we have faith in him. Also we should strive to gain the trust and faith of our Father in Heaven in us.

2 Samuel 22:1-4.

 And David spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the daythat the Lord had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:

 And he said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

I went to the organ recital today. We had a guest organist, Kimberly Moody. She performed a stunning composition, “Rhumba.” I am currently donating plasma and then I’ll go to Harmon’s to get groceries.

I love you!
Elder Blodgett
