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.

This was a rut I was grateful to be stuck in one crisp, blue-sky morning in western Wyoming. Standing deep in a trough on a sparsely wooded hill overlooking the North Platte River near the outskirts of Guernsey, I felt the earth rumble as oxen mooed, whips cracked, and covered wagons creaked up the steep rutted incline hauling heavy loads of the essentials, and the trivial. Hardened women in bonnets and long skirts followed coughing in the dust, and men in hats on horses yelled at their livestock and encouraged children and the old staggering to keep pace. Among this rolling wave of humanity were hundreds of poor English and Scandinavian Mormons on foot who had no idea what awaited them in October of 1856 as they pushed and pulled two-wheeled carts with bloody hands ever-onward to Zion and the Valley of the Salt Lake for 1,300 tiresome miles in the ultimate test of their faith.

On June 8 and in the early morning hours of June 9, a series of severe thunderstorms rolled through southern Ontario. One of the worst-hit areas was the Thomas S. Monson Camp and the surrounding area. This sparkling new campground is located near Peterborough, Ontario. On the night of June 10, I received an email from my elders quorum president asking for help the following day in cleaning up the campground. It's possible it was a tornado that roared through the campground. Fortunately, no one was injured or killed. We were asked to bring our lunches and something to drink. Because preparations were just starting, there would be no food arrangements, and there is no place to buy food in the immediate area. I was amazed by how quickly the church had organized the cleanup.

The town’s 7,000 residents, including members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, have been evacuated to neighboring communities. No deaths or injuries have been reported, but several of Slave Lake’s buildings have been destroyed, including the town hall, the library, a radio station, a mall and several homes. Further damage is expected as the fire continues to burn.
