A woman waits by a bus stop, temple bag in hand, believing her bus will arrive. White was inspired by President Russell M. Nelson’s 2018 commitment to build a temple in Russia, just two years after the government restricted missionary activities. White quotes a Russian member who commented on the temple announcement: "It was as if the Lord was yelling, ‘I love my Russian children. I’m here. Wait but a little longer.’"

"She does not know the bus schedule, but she does know the driver, the Lord himself, and He ‘remembereth’ all of his passengers and ‘denieth none that come unto him.’"
