Just thought I'd share with all who care to know...I found some great pictures of construction of the Kiev Ukraine Temple. It should be done April 15, 2010. Just in time for a great graduation gift to myself...hmmmmmm.
As to Eastern Europe, on Tuesday I had the great privilege of speaking with Kolya, a great friend of mine that I was able to teach while in Moscow. He is recently engaged to a great girl and is doing everything right in his life. I couldn't be prouder of him or his decisions. It was great talking to him about how his decision to join the church way back when has changed the course of his life forever. It has changed mine as well. I am better because of the goodness of his life and the example he is to me. He didn't grow up in the best of circumstances and has just blossomed in his young life. Again, I couldn't be prouder ofhim or the choices he has made up to this point in his life. Go Kolya!!!
