|Cochabamba, Bolivia Temple|
You will find that as you enter, all distractions and sound from beyond the walls of the temple disappear and in its place a sense of clarity and serenity will reside. It is in the temple that we can feel closest to our Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost. For it truly is the house of the lord and it is here that we can find inspiration and guidance in added measure. As cliche as it sounds, words truly can not, adequately, describe the presence of God that dwells within the temple.
It is a place where members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints make sacred covenants to follow Jesus Christ and learn more about their relationship with God. These covenants are much like the commonly known covenant of baptism. In that covenant we promise to:
1. To take his name upon us
2. Always remember him
3. To keep his commandments
When we make that baptismal covenant by someone who holds the authority to do so from God, we are promised the Gift of the Holy Ghost. As we live up to our promise, God promises us that we will always have his Spirit to be with us.
