Greeting from Yuma Arizona

Post by David for now » Wed Aug 15, 2012 6:15 pm

Hello everyone. Recently joined the board and wanted to send out my well wishes. As there is not a temple, of any school, within a 3 1/2 drive, this board is a great resource in seeking opinions and answers. Thank you. Probably won't post much as I enjoy seeking answers to my questions by researching what others have asked before. Almost always find the answer plus learn so much that it prevents future questions, which in turn leaves me more time to meditate.

Wish you the best day you think is possible,

David

Closest temples are San Diego or Phoenix although I'm choosing one in Tuscon to support. Vegas raises an interesting question. Can I use my comps that I earned from before to book a trip to visit a temple now? I never used my trips to Vegas from an excuse for drink or explore sexual misconduct but I would be going with the intent of not gambling. But as i know that is what the comp is intended for I guess that would break a Precept. I'll have to save for Vegas. :) Looking forwards towards visit the temples there, have a feeling it won't be long
