During the first three days of a missionaries experience in the Ghana MTC, family history work is performed. Each brings with them their four generation pedigree charts and begins completing the booklet "My Family."
Here is a glance at how the numbers add up:
2014 .% 2015 YTD .%
Number of Missionaries 1372 579
Number of Unendowed Missionaries 742 .54 362 .62
Number of Baptisms for Dead/Endowments 3254 1568
Number of Sealings 1108 509
Number of Missionaries Submitting Names 485 .35 248 .42
This work is possible in large part to the great effort of Elder and Sister Watson, our Area Family History couple. They have input everyone of these names into the computer system that generates the temple cards. Their mission is now complete as they return to Virgina next week. The Watsons will be missed.
