Considering that Anna enters the MTC tomorrow, I guess I'd better hurry up and catch up on a few posts...
At the end of July Anna had the opportunity to go to the Washington D.C. temple and receive her endowments. What this means is that Anna was able to receive special instruction that has the purpose of helping us understand the Plan of Salvation better as well as make promises with Heavenly Father similar to those we make at baptism of following his example through the way we live and always striving to be obedient.
By making these promises with Heavenly Father she is better prepared to serve as a missionary, and really better prepared for continual learning and guidance throughout the rest of her life.
It was a beautiful day that was spent in the company of family and friends (what could be better than that!).
