One thing that really stood out to me this week was the fact that work is being done on both sides of the veil right now and at all times. We must not stop our work on this side or else the work on the other side will come to a stop as well. I really got thinking about this because sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in the hustle of life that we forget to take the time to go to the temple and spend an hour or two there. What a great and marvelous place it is and to be able to go inside of it brings great joy into our lives.
Richard G Scott gave a talk titled The Joy of Redeeming the Dead and in this talk he stated "But what about you? Have you prayed about your own ancestors’ work? Set aside those things in your life that doesn’t really matter. Decide to do something that will have eternal consequences. Perhaps you have been prompted to look for ancestors but feel you are not a genealogist. Can you see that you don’t have to be anymore? It all begins with love and a sincere desire to help those beyond the veil who can’t help themselves. Check around. There will be someone in your area that can help you have success. This work is a spiritual work, a monumental effort of cooperation on both sides of the veil, where help is given in both directions. Anywhere you are in the world, with prayer, faith, determination, diligence, and some sacrifice, you can make a powerful contribution. "
