Earlier that day Brother Paul Watkins, the institute director, had come to the building, to complete some work. Though classes were not in session, he had agreed to have the institute building open for the missionaries to teach a young woman they had previously met. When she did not show up at the appointed time, the missionaries continued to wait.
It was a hot summer day as Tarin Virgil headed to the college bus stop in Rocklin, California. As the heat of the afternoon took its toll, Tarin decided to take a breather under a tree on the side of the road. As she paused, Tarin didn’t notice the sign indicating that she was standing outside of an Institute of Religion building for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. What she also did not know was that her life was about to change.
