Hello readers (this is David not my amazing sister Courtney). I just want to share my feelings as my departure date nears.

Last Saturday I got to go through the Idaho Falls Temple for the first time! I was so excited to go, all my family was here, I had already went to the Distribution Center to get everything I needed, I put on my best (and only) suit, one of my fave ties, and was off to the temple.

I got to talk to the temple president and he was so nice. We talked about the keys that were restored in the temple.

  • The Keys of Moses- the keys of Missionary Work and the Gathering of Israel

  • The Keys of Elias- the keys that what is sealed on Earth will be sealed in Heaven

  • The Keys of Elijah- the keys to perform temple work

It made me so excited because missionary work and temple work are so intertwined. I am able to go to Brazil and bring people into the fold of God with the keys that Moses restored. When they are baptized, their baptism will be legitimate in heaven because of the keys that Elias restored. After a while these people and their families will be able to go to the temple and get sealed as a family for all Eternity, husband to wife, parent to child :-D. (All this insight is from the Temple President, so I can't really claim it as my own). I had such a wonderful experience at the temple, especially with all my family there.

Oooh oooh yeah. Also on Tuesday I was in Provo, and my sister Stephanie and I were able to go to the Temple baptistry, and I was able to officiate in the baptisms with her!! It was such a wonderful experience.

Well all this talk about the Temple makes me grateful that my parents are sealed together for all eternity and I am eternally sealed to them. That which was lost is back on the Earth today, and I am so excited to share that message :-D
