Last Monday night we visited this couple from Belize City. It was great to hear firsthand their experience of being sealed in the temple the previously Saturday.D&C 42:14
On Saturday morning Sister Adams, Sister Flake, and I stop by the local Belize City hospital to deliver newborn baby kits that were made by a group of Relief Society sisters from Guatemala.
I have been involved in making these newborn kits many times in the United States and didn't think much about the activity in the past. As we visited these new mothers in the hospital, my heart was touched as I saw first hand how they were gratefully received. An added blessing was being able to give a kit to a baby boy that was born on the same day as my own grandson (Renee and Dave's baby) in a Salt Lake City hospital far away from Belize. It was a gift for me to see the Belizean baby and think of Renee and Dave's baby born on the same day, July 20, both weighing 8 lbs.
This is the hall decorated for the event by the Belize City youth before everyone arrived.
It was fun to watch the Adams lead out with a little swing dancing to inspire the youth to start dancing.
Elder Magnusson did an excellent job driving the big 16 passenger stick shift van to help the San Pedro youth and leaders return to the boat taxi when the event was over.
