Special Own Endowment from Moab

Saturday- 25 June 2016

Alexis Marie Kim Risenhoover was from Moab and was receiving her own Endowment.  When her and her mother came into the Monticello Utah Temple Alexis said," this is the one that spoke in conference recently you were so good."   It was such an honor to be the one to be with her this day.   Alexis is Sister Cook's Granddaughter what an experience with her.  Sister Cook is an Ordinance Worker in the Monticello Utah Temple.  Alexis and her mother where so close to the spirit receiving her own endowment.  She just cried and cried they tell me that all the Cook's family were in the prayer circle but two couples. This experience really strengthens my testimony and the spirit is so very close it brings such joy!!  When  I gave the Garment Instruction she was so happy and trilled to hear the spiritual message and to wear her garments. I just love these special experience as I serve as assistant to the Matron, what an honor and blessing.

Blake/Nielson's Wedding

Friday- 10 June 2016

At 11:00 am Dylan Blake and Generra Nielson were sealed in the Monticello Utah Temple by President James J. Harris.  It was a beautiful wedding and the message President Harris gave them was touching to my heart.   I am sure that Calvin Blake who was Dylan's grandfather had past away several years ago was there for that special occasion.  Dylan loved his grandfather and was over to his home all the time.  Our back yards are together and we always saw Dylan at Calvin and VerDonne Blake's home.  Now another touching situation was that Generra's mother died of cancer a few years  ago also and I'm sure she was there also.  Generra was her only daughter and had been married before and was divored  but now she has found a wonderful young man to be sealed too.   The couple stayed strong until they left the sealing room and then they broke down so Sister Yabrough took them to the Celestial Room to get controlled before they went back to walk outside of the temple. Generra had a boy and girl by her first husband but when Dylan walked outside the temple that little boy, Brayz ran to Dylan and said, "Your my daddy now".  Generra's daughter, Armanii was with her aunt and had a beautiful white dress that was out of the same material that Generra's wedding dress was made out of.   I will always remember the joy in their eyes, such a happy couple. Dylan had gone on a mission before his grandpa Calvin died of cancer.  He had a hard time and came home early from his mission and he fell away from the church for  a while.  We were so proud of him to come back to Blanding and changed his life and became active in the church again. That is when he met Generra and the two have just hit it off.  What a wonderful couple they are and her two children look just like they are Dylan's children in there announcement pictures they both have his blue eyes.

Missionary Tristan Cole DeWitt- Temple

Saturday- 4 June 2016

At 10:15 am Tristan Cole DeWitt came to the Monticello Utah Temple to receive his own endowment and President Harris met with him and got all the paper work done.  His father Brother DeWitt was there with him as his escort.  Tristan is going on a mission so this was his special day to receive his own endowment.  I was surprised because his father had an affair with another women when he was married but he had repented and was here by his son's side.  I was very happy that he was worthy to come back to the temple.  His new wife was there which I was surprised also but she had repented also and it was great to have them both in the temple.  Sister Christine DeWitt his mother was there and I was proud of her because it had to be hard on her.   Tristan has been living with his dad up north  for about a year or so and his mother lives in Blanding with the other brothers.  President Harris met with Tristan and his escort, his father and talked with him about wearing his garments and the instructions that we teach those who come and get their own endowment.  Christine is in our ward and so I have a special feeling for that great example of a women, she is awesome, love this women.
