KENSINGTON, Maryland — Several of the missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will perform sacred music surrounding the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  The performance on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Washington D. C. Temple Visitors’ Center in Kensington. 

Featured will be a sisters’ quartet, elders’ choir, a flute solo, and a number by a guest singer.  Sister Melinda Hogge is the chairman for the program.

The missionaries, who are from many parts of the world, are serving missions in the Washington D. C. area at their own expense.  The elders serve for two years and the sisters serve for eighteen months.  Although the majority of their time is actually spent inviting people whom they meet to learn more about Jesus Christ, they have found that music sometimes testifies in ways that words cannot.

This event is free of charge and the public is cordially invited.  The Washington D. C. Temple Visitors’ Center is open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily and is located at 9900 Stoneybrook Drive, Kensington, MD 20895.  For further information and directions, call 301/587-0144.
