Love the past but let your heart reside in the future.

A groundbreaking was planned and then we got an assignment out of town. We were gone two days and arrived back from a long drive to be exactly on time. Local leaders were in place and we started with about 120, but before too long 200 were in attendance.
A gold handled shovel lay ready. This is not just the first building it is the first groundbreaking ever heard of here.
Many took an opportunity to turn the soil for our new three story building.
The groundbreaking ceremony ended with spirit filled singing and prayer.
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
