This week we had a presentation to make as part of a workshop on Self Reliance in the Lausanne, Switzerland Stake. Since the Swiss temple is only about one hour past Lausanne in the town of Zollikofen, we got permission (the temple is outside the mission boundaries) to go the day before the workshop and visit Bern and go to the temple. Switzerland is really a beautiful country and going to the temple again was the cherry on the cake! We met our bishop and another member of our Écully ward at the temple. Also, as we entered the temple, the brother who greeted us at the entrance, Brother Fox, was a senior missionary like us from the U.S. I asked him where he was from and he said "California". When I asked which part, he said he was from a small town near San Francisco. This got my interest, so I asked the name of the town to which he responded "Brentwood" and then started to explain where that is. What he didn't know is that I am also from Brentwood! As it turns out he knew my parents and knows all of my siblings as well. Small world in the church.
