On Wednesday evening they had a mother and daughter activity for Mother's Day. All of us including little girls walked to the temple and then we sat around on the black top and curb and had a little meeting. We had an opening song by one of the primary children sung in English and then Samoan and then the counselor in the Relief Society bore her testimony. They had hid items around the grass and behind the bushes. We were to find them and then bear our testimony about how this reminded us of the temple. I was paired of with the bishop's neice who was a non member. Her item was a treasure chest. I asked her what she would put in the chest. She said that she would put special items in it and then she would share it with everyone. This is not what I was thinking she would say. I told her that she would probably hide it in a drawer and just bring it out to show to special people. I told her that the temple was like that because we wanted to keep it safe. I think this went over her head, but the meeting was really nice. Different items that were talked about was the scriptures, the faith in God Book, a white shirt, a tie, a book on the young men and young women's standards. When they were done. We all walked back to the church and sat on the curb and ice cream and cookies.
