This morning we left for the Post around 0635. We made our first stop to pick up 2 of our student/soldiers so we could use them as battle buddies to pick up 4 other students/soldiers. Unfortunately, the Platoon Sgt. was at chow and so we had to wait for him for 20 minutes. There is always something that delays us! However, we finally got them checked out and so we were able to pick up the others; even though we were a little late getting to them. We had a wonderful trip to the temple with 10 student/soldiers, 1 wife and 4 escorts (that would be us and other members of the branch presidency). We really did have a wonderful time with them; it is so good to see them enjoy the experiences and the spirit of the temple. We had one young man with us who was there for the first time, Brother Hancock! He had a wonderful experience. Here are some photos of the trip.
