Model Temple

 We went to the Temple Square Visitor's Center today to see the Salt Lake Temple model.

 This depicts the top floor of the temple. When I was a young missionary preparing to go to the Tongan Islands, all the missionaries in the Missionary Training Center met with President Harold B. Lee, the prophet, iin this room, where he spoke to us and answered our questions.
