A woman waits by a bus stop, temple bag in hand, believing her bus will arrive. The artist 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. One Russian member who commented on the temple announcement recalled their feelings at the time: "It was as if the Lord was yelling, ‘I love my Russian children. I’m here. Wait but a little longer.’“
