Some friendships are forever. I met Birgitta who lives in Sweden about 35 years ago when I was married to a Swede. She and I wrote letters back and forth before there were emails and eventually met. Over the years we have shared our lives and grown to be like sisters. How fun to see her. We went shopping, eating at several restaurants, saw the Meet the Mormons movie, attended the temple, walked, talked, looked at old scrapbooks and enjoyed renewing our friendship. Now she is on her way back to her homeland.

of Mormons in about 50 different languages out of the 110 that exist.

|In early days the temple was on the outskirts of town,|
now it's in the center of the city!
