Caravans Fill The Temple
These are some of the buses that come to the temple on a given day. On Fridays and Saturdays the temple is full of patrons. We had more that 12 large buses this weekend. Some come with entire families so they can be sealed. There are places for them to stay while here during the week. It is really special to see the little children enter to be sealed. We are getting used to walking around the temple grounds seeing these family with small children in their arms. Caravans are organized by stakes and come with their own ordinance workers to help with the work. We have a skeleton crew of workers during the week to make sure the temple functions. In the evenings and on Saturday when the caravans come, then we are able to fill the temple and a lot of work is done. It is difficult to plan when you don't know how many will be coming.
