This temple has been one we have wanted to make for months.
The first temple in Brazil, the first in South America.

We've all heard stories of the sacrifice members have made to make it to this temple.
This woman was such an example of love for the temple. When Mrs Minifigure was a missionary, Sister Floripes was 106 years old and still took the 12 hour bus ride to visit the temple every chance she could. She would stay for a week with other members of the Stake and would stay in the temple ALL DAY! She was the oldest woman known at the time of her death at 118!
I consider it a blessing to have known her and her daughter, valiant, dedicated, loving, hard working daughters of God!
