A good thorough evangelising

We took the compulsory evangelism that was thinly disguised as a tour of The Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). It is an interesting place: the home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the LDS Conference Centre which features a 21,000 seat theatre and rooftop garden complete with multi-storey cascading waterfalls.

The church has done their marketing homework, since all the tours are given by young good looking girls. As we toured we were introduced to about 10 different Australian "sisters", and also ran into the head of the LDS church Gordon Hinckley who was out for a morning walk. The girls giving us the tour got pretty excited.

The temple grounds were lit up with an amazing array of christmas lights, really beautiful in fresh snow.
