This was an incredible week for us. My favorite family, The Villanuevas (Bobby, Francis, Ayana, and Amaris), from my mission, made the trip to SLC to get endowed and sealed. They were baptized just weeks before I went home, and I was very close to them. It was an amazing experience!
My favorite part was the actual sealing. It was different from all the others I've seen because there was only one person in the room who was "just watching". Everyone else was part of the ceremony. In other words, it was a very intimate setting. The sealer was great, and we all cried like babies.
We got to go out to eat with them a few times, play in the pool at the hotel, watch a scary movie, look at mission pics, and generally have a great time. Bobby became Sam's best friend immediately by showering him with Cars presents. Sam, and the rest of us were very sad to say goodbye.
Here are some pictures from their visit.
