WE'RE FLYING OUT TOMORROW - The Travel department called today and said the Church lawyers had determined that it was alright to go ahead and used the employment visas to get into India and that they will work out any issues once we are in country, so we are on a plane tomorrow morning.  I guess we will have faith that all will be well (What does the Apostle Paul say about faith - the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen). We fly from SLC to Chicago, then to London, then on to New Delhi.  The trip will take about about 26 hours including layovers.  We arrive in New Delhi at 11:30 p.m. Thursday night their time.

Provo Utah Temple
We had a great experience at the temple today.  Yesterday while looking at our family history, we noticed that Paul's paternal grandparents had not been sealed in the temple (sealed means they were not united in marriage for eternity, which is a very important and a key doctrine in the church that families and family relationships exist beyond this life).  This morning we had the privilege to act as proxies for them to perform that ordinance in the Provo temple.  It was a great way to conclude our time in Provo.

Being our last day in the US, we honored our Texas roots and had Mexican food for lunch at Maria Bonita's Mexican Grill in Orem.  If you are ever up this way, it's worth the stop.  Excellent! our last indulgence were milk shakes at Sammy's, a hole in the wall burger place at Center and 100 West, right behind the Provo Marriott.  We told ourselves that we weren't going to drink them all, and we didn't (but we won't tell you how much we left - not much). Again, definitely worth the stop for either a great burger or shake.
This is the last post for us from the States.  We look forward to continuing our blog once we are in India.  Wish us well...we're excited and look forward to new experiences.
