Years ago my wife and I spent 18 months serving as full time ordinance workers in the D. C. Temple. We loved being in the temple for 8 hours Tuesday through Saturday. We loved the beauty of the temple and its grounds. But we most loved and greatly admired the local workers with whom we served. Many of them drove for hours on I-95 to get to the temple. Some drove to the temple, served a shift, slept in their cars, showered and shaved in the changing rooms in the front of the temple, served another shift and drove home; and had been doing that for the 30 years the temple had been open.
