Draper Temple Dedication

I just wanted to say a brief word about the dedication that took place this last Sunday. As I have said before, being a BYU student has its perks and one of them was a chance to see the Draper Temple in person. Another was to see it dedicated via broadcast.

We watched in the Marriott Center as President Monson dedicated the magnificent edifice and I felt the spirit so strongly as we raised to join in the "Hosanna Shout." As we shouted what literally translates to "Save us," I had a very strong confirmation that what we do in the temple is exactly what we must do to be saved. I felt so blessed to know this and I feel an even greater love for my Savior who made it all possible. I know he has saved me!
