Every time the missionaries came to teach us more, our whole house was filled with the spirit of the Lord. It seemed as if our whole house was on fire.
“It seemed as though all the talks and lessons were inspired.”
The strength of the southern Alberta Saints attests to the blessings that have come from having a temple in their midst.
I heard a voice speaking to me telling me to help my great grandmother to get baptized.
“I never thought I would get to be in the temple.”
“Everything in the Church, the meetings and activities, the missionary efforts, the lessons taught and the hymns, all lead to the work done in holy temples.”
“…and the miracle of three temples in Alberta”
“Get all the information you can get on that property the Prophet identified as a ‘good site’ for a temple.”
Our stake president explained that all members, especially youth, would be more involved in wholesome pursuits as they engaged themselves in family history.
“It’s a great opportunity to have the temple not far from my house, so I can go when I want and have the experience to feel the Holy Ghost.”
“Our leaders promise that we will be protected from the adversary as we are involved in family history work.”
Any work you do in the temple is time well spent, but receiving ordinances vicariously for one of your own ancestors will make the time in the temple more sacred, and even greater blessings will be received. The First Presidency has declared, ‘Our preeminent obligation is to seek out and identify our own ancestors’ (First Presidency letter, Feb. 29, 2012).
