Miss World Fiji Visits Suva Fiji Temple

Miss World Fiji 2015, Brittany Hazelman (24), a graduate from Brigham Young University – Hawaii, visited the Suva Fiji Temple during a special public open house this morning with her mother and friends.

While still a student at BYUHawaii, Brittany learned about The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints from friends and missionaries.

During an interview today, Brittany spoke of her three-year experience as a BYU student, and of her visits to the Visitor’s Centre near the Laie Hawaii Temple.

“But, it’s a very different experience actually being inside the temple," she said.  

She felt impressed, she said, "by the peace and quietness of the temple."

"It was spirit-filled—I loved it!”
