As a missionary serving in the Manchester New Hampshire Mission, I did not have a temple in my mission. So for two years I was content to teach others about the temple. It was awesome to see those I taught get baptized and eventually make it to the House of the Lord. However, near the end of my mission, my mission president, President Philip Stoker, challenged me to go to the temple weekly after I returned. He told me that he understood some weeks I might not be able to, but to set the goal, and strive towards it. So I did just that.
