Week Fifty-five!

We had cambios this week. I am now with Hermana Sutton from Mesa Arizona.  If you never thought there could be another person like me, think again because I’m pretty sure that we are clones.  Which means that we get into lots of trouble, (but the good kind).

I’m still in Tarapaca which I am so grateful for.  We are starting to work a lot more with Family History.  And this week in the Gospel Principles class we learned a bit more about why, we were talking about the millennium and it says that "There will be two great works for members of the Church during the Millennium: temple work and missionary work.  "Temple work involves the ordinances that are necessary for exaltation. These include baptism, the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and the temple ordinances—the endowment, temple marriage, and the sealing together of family units.  Many people have died without receiving these ordinances.  People on the earth must perform these ordinances for them.  This work is now being done in the temples of the Lord.  There is too much work to finish before the Millennium begins, so it will be completed during that time."

So in super simple terms we want to do as much as we can right now so that we can rest in the millennium, right?  But also because of all of the blessings that come from this work like getting to know our ancestors and striving to be worthy of the blessing of the temple.  These are all important things and I am so happy to have the opportunity to start putting a focus on them for these next few weeks.
