Attend the temple to participate in baptisms and confirmations for the dead. If possible, prepare a family name or names for baptism beforehand, and discuss the blessings of serving in the temple (see “Service,” For the Strength of Youth , 32–33).
President Thomas S. Monson counseled, “My young friends who are in your teenage years, always have the temple in your sights” (“The Holy Temple—a Beacon to the World,” Ensign, May 2011, 93)
Our temples are now open for baptisms for the dead. We continue to encourage you to be active in family history and indexing from home, so we can keep the spirit of the temple with us and be prepared when circumstance allow for Temple attendance.
