Our main assignment is to work in the Mexico City Temple Visitors Center. We generally work here four days a week for six hour shifts. We also have a one hour training meeting on Tuesday mornings. during our shift, Leslie and I supervise about 4-5 young sister missionaries (who take visitors on tours of the facility and its exhibits), greet people coming to visit, check any belongings they don't want to carry around on the tour, and take care of administrative duties. At times people in distress
come seeking help. It is my responsibility to talk with these folks and try to help them resolve their difficulties. It is a challenging yet extremely rewarding part of our ministry. In the first two weeks I met with an elderly man who was sick and needed a priesthood blessing, a man who was out of work and down on his luck, and a woman who was less active in the church and needed help getting back on track. Each left the Center feeling better and with more hope for the future.
