FamilySearch Indexing

As we discussed in today's lesson, you can contribute to the redemption of the dead in a number of ways:

1) Go to the temple and do proxy baptisms and confirmations (There is a youth visit on Tuesday).

2) Research information about your family history.

3) Index records to help other people find their ancestors. To do this go to FamilySearch Indexing and click on volunteer! (If you are not yet 13 you will have to wait until your birthday, as you have to be 13 or older to participate.)

The Testimony of President Heber J. Grant

Here is the video of President Grant's testimony for next week's lesson:

"I want to bear my testimony to you … and tell you I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Eternal Father. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God, and may God help us so to live, that others, seeing our good deeds, will investigate the plan of life and salvation, I ask, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

How have your good deeds or those of people you know, led people to investigate the gospel? (There were lots of examples in testimony meeting today!)

Reminder: Fast Sunday

I just wanted to post this reminder about the special purpose to which the Area Presidency (Elder Kopischke, Elder Caussé, Elder Teixeira) have asked us to dedicate our fast today. This is an extract from a letter read out in sacrament meeting recently:

"We hereby invite every member to dedicate the fast Sunday in June to the purpose that our voice of invitation be heard. We further invite every one of you to bring each Sunday of June one person or family, either less-active or non-member, or someone in need, to visit sacrament meeting and feel the powerful influence of the gospel in their lives.

As we will do so, our love for our neighbors will abound, our faith to reach out will be strengthened and our ability to build the kingdom will increase."

What can you do to reach out to a less-active, a non-member or somebody in need this month?
