What Is the Lord Asking of You?

  • You are to take upon yourself His name.
  • You are to follow the Savior, love God, and serve those around you.
  • You have the privilege of living your life as disciples of Christ and lifting others.

A Sacred Duty

  • President Thomas S. Monson has encouraged you to visit the temples often to do baptisms for the dead.
  • No generation of youth that has ever lived as had so great a privilege as you have to assist in the salvation of those who have come before.
  • First, we are to search out and find members of our families who came before us.
  • The importance of the welding link that binds us together forever is clearly stated in the scriptures (see D&C 128:18).
  • Set a personal goal to help prepare as many names for the temple as baptisms you perform in the temple (visit templechallenge.lds.org).
  • You will become “saviors on Mount Zion” (see D&C 103:9).

Finding Our Cousins

  • Look at your fan chart online to see your ancestors.
  • If it is not complete, fill it in as best you can.
  • If your chart seems complete, find those closely related to those on your family tree (finding your cousins).
  • Help those around you find their ancestors. After all, we are brothers and sisters and we can also call them “cousins.”

Promises for You

  • Your knowledge and faith in the Savior will increase.
  • You will have a more certain knowledge that life continues on beyond the veil.
  • You will receive protection against temptation.
  • You will prepare yourself and the world you live in for the Second Coming of the Savior.
