I live in West Los Angeles and am a temple worker at the Los Angeles
California Temple. On Fridays, I like to take walks of about three to four miles.
I hop a bus and get off wherever it seems nice. It is a different location
each Friday. I also take a different route home.
I got off near Overland Avenue, a north-south street, and started my
walk home on Friday, July 3. I was walking on the northbound side of the
street toward the temple when, where Overland crosses the Santa Monica
Freeway, something ahead caught my eye — a blue temple family file
card on the ground stuck to a fence.
As I bent down to pick it up, I saw several more cards, both pink and
blue. I picked up 47 cards, all showing signs of being outdoors for an
extended time. Looking at the temple codes, I saw that the cards had been
all over the world. The last ordinance indicated on some cards had been
completed in 1968.
I went back the next day, broadened the area of my search, and found 23
more cards. In subsequent days, I found about a dozen more. I often walk
that route now.See the full story on ldschurchnews.com.
