By Way of Invitation...

Three weeks ago Ben wrote this in his letter home “You know we have a temple way close in Vegas. I think it would be a good idea for everyone who can to go at least once a month... just saying.”

This week, after none of the family members responded to that invitation he wrote this with a note at the bottom of it to please post it to the blog.
“I´m going to be direct.
We live exactly 15 minutes away from the temple.
The prophet has asked us to go with frequency. Nothing impedes us.
Do the work. Make sacrifices to save souls.
Our ancestors have been waiting for someone, anyone to do the work that will take them to the celestial kingdom.
The Lord needs each one of us to help him in his work.
Make the sacrifice of time and go to the temple at least once a month.
In all reality (not sure why everyone but that phrase in there letters to me this week but hey=) ) doing temple work is how we thank Two people for something they´ve given us
1. Christ for His Atonement. The work for the dead goes hand in hand with the atonement of our Lord and Savior
2. Our Ancestors for everything they did to make it so that we are blessed. By redeeming them we thank them for every moment of their lives that brought our family into the gospel.
Do it. There are no excuses.”
