After the meeting, a girl who I had met a couple summers before? the summer before? I really didn't remember her at all -but she remembered me, and invited me to go with her to a fireside that night with some of her friends. One of her friends was a girl named Janet. Long story short, Janet invited me & got her bishop to make out a recommend/ ticket for me, took care of our travel arrangements, and the next Sunday, I was sitting in a chapel only a couple blocks away from the temple, as President Hinkley dedicated the Manhattan temple.
You might call this all coincidence, but I say it was total divine intervention. He heard the desire of my heart and made it happen for me.
