I did enjoy the visit even though it was super cold and it even hailed a little. There is a museum in the pedestal that supports the actual statue. I learned a lot about the history of the statue which can be viewed at this link: History of the Statue of Liberty. It stirred in me deep patriotic emotion about the goodness of America and the symbol of freedom for which she stands along with our flag.

Sunday the 14th we went to two evening meetings. One was a devotional for temple workers and friends and family. This was very inspirational. The other was a singles fireside which we crashed. The speakers at the fireside were Elder and Sister Yost. Elder Yost is a retired 4 star admiral and past commandant of the Coast Guard. Their assignment now is in the New York Public and International Affairs office, assigned to represent the church in the United Nations. They have hosted many affairs for the ambassadors of the various countries. They learn more about our church. To learn more about Admiral Yost and his career click here. Needless to say it was an inspiring fireside for all who were there.
I have been working in their office helping with the computers.
Verae has her temporary bridge now and we will go to the dentist again on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We will really miss not being home for the holidays.
