Perpetual Temple Travel Fund
It was encouraging to hear of the LDS Church's new perpetual fund set up to help church members who are poor and who live far from temples to be able to acquire the funds to travel to those temples. It is a testimony that these types of sacred efforts are specifically set up to help those who cannot help themselves in the world. Adoption is truly one of these kinds of situations. There are so many children in need and so many homes that could be the nurturing grounds for these souls. We have recently interacted with many amazing people. One woman testified to us of the blessing of being adopted at the age of 14 and the love and sacrifice of her adoptive parents that she recognized had truly saved her. Another woman of means who has seen ways that she can help as her heart has been opened to the plight of orphaned children. Then there is my friend Lonny who has recently become totally dedicated to this cause and believes with all his heart that this fund will come to be. I know there are many that can and will continue to come together in order to create a simpler path for willing families to welcome ready children into their homes.
