Idaho Falls Temple

This is a short post (Sorry).  I had a great first week. I met a few of my students and I just love them. They are amazing.  I have never had so many international students in one class.  It is kind of cool.  One of my students comes from a poor country. He told me that after his friend served his mission and told him that many people die because they don't have enough money to get medical care, he was sad. He decided he wanted to study medicine so he can help people. 

I bought a treadmill...I could not resist the cheap price. It is almost new and was $50 only. It runs great...even though I have not had time to actually use it. I have been busy trying to get a decent garden going. My mint plants are the only ones I managed to plant, but they are doing great, and I look forward to the rest of my garden.

I bought a lawn mower and had a hard time mowing my lawn for the first time. Not sure if there is a good way to do it, but it does not look that great. I guess I will get better at it with time.  

On Saturday we went to the Idaho Falls Temple open house. We took with us a friend from Libya and her mother. Her mother felt uncomfortable at first and did not want to go, but I think she enjoyed the tour. I tried to translate the video for them and hopefully they understood a little bit about what temples are.  The Idaho Falls temple is so beautiful inside and has many amazing paintings. Sadly, the tour goes so fast that you can't stop and admire things. It was a beautiful day and the flowers on the temple grounds were amazing. Here are some pictures.
