Hastening the Work of Salvation
When we first arrived, we decided to have the missionaries spend their free moments on their intake day, working on Family History. We have now received 5 groups of missionaries. We started this program with the second group because I was concerned that the day they arrived they did not have much to do except register and verify records and because in the mission field they will be able to teach from personal experience the plan of happiness. This will greatly assist them in retaining new converts as they keep their eye on the temple.
Since beginning this effort, the next four groups have submitted the names of 331 deceased relatives for family history work and 127 names for sealing. Yesterday, four of our missionaries did the temple work for deceased parents. Pictured here are two of them plus one who did the work for his best friend.
