Off to Mormonland!

November 9, 2011

Salt Lake Temple

Kay & I are flying off to Utah. Salt Lake City. Kay became close friends online with a Mormon couple and has been in extended conversations about their life and beliefs. She read the Book of Mormon, cover to cover.

We’ll get to meet our new friends face-to-face for the first time. I’m expecting to

  • Hang out with the couple (and their kids)
  • Meet their extended family
  • Eat with them
  • Visit Temple Square
  • Go with them to their church, for three whole hours!

I’ve no idea how we’re going to fit that all into such a short visit. It should be an adventure, like visiting a foreign land where everyone speaks American English and is perfectly groomed.

If you happen to be in Salt Lake City this weekend, we’ll be the ones desperately seeking a coffee shop.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
