Ciudad Juarez Temple
The Juarez temple is just a couple of miles over the border at El Paso. (So probably about an hour from Las Cruces in good traffic). I've been there a good handful of times (including when it was closed, sigh) but I've not attended a session there. Anyway, last Friday night I was FINALLY able to go to do a session with some friends in the ward. It was so great to be there and I really enjoyed myself. There were two things I found particularly interesting: They ask you to take your shoes off and leave them in a closet in the waiting room, and before they start the session, they take a vote. (No, it ain't survivor, they're not voting you out of the session :) They ask how many people would need headphones if the session were to be conducted in English and how many would need headphones if it were in Spanish. The session is conducted in the lanuguage that the majority speaks while the rest wear headphones. I was really (secretly) hoping that it would be in Spanish, and it was :) I find that I pay better attention to anything and everything if I have to think about it in Spanish. C'est la vie, right?
