We believe that if a missionary has a temple work experience in the Ghana temple, they will be more likely to teach people to the temple in the mission field. All missionaries attend the Ghana Accra Temple on their first Wednesday in the MTC (the French speakers attend on Tuesday.) This is the day they will send you an email. You missionary will be able to testify from personal experience of the importance of this great work having taken a name through for one of their "cousins." Please try to have the baptism and initiatory work done for the ancestor prior to coming to the MTC.
On February 8, last year, Elder Andersen gave a presents at a major family history conference in Salt Lake City, challenging us to "find our cousins." “Those who understand the eternal blessings which come from the temple know that no sacrifice is too great, no price too heavy, no struggle too difficult in order to receive those blessings.” —President Thomas S. Monson
