Family Search News   Leave a comment

Brethren, handed to me after church was a neat bit of information that was not able to be included in the Branch Bulletin, but is of sufficient significance that I felt it important to share this with you:

FamilySearch released 300 Million new indexed records on April 28th, 2010. To see a list of the collections go to:

http://fsbeta.familysearch.org/s/collection/list

To search the records, go to

May the Lord bless us in continuing to be diligent in the searching out of our kindred dead, and getting their temple work prepared and done to share the blessings of the great plan of Happiness with all of our Heavenly Fathers children.

Bishop Keith B. McMullin, Second Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric at the 180th annual General Conference, said the following:

“Duty does not require perfection, but it does require diligence. It is not simply what is legal; it is what is virtuous.”

“For those who eschew evil and live good lives, who strive for a brighter day and keep the commandments of God, things can get better and better even in the face of tragedy. The Savior showed us the way. From Gethsemane, the cross, and the tomb, He rose triumphant, bringing life and hope to us all. He bids us, ‘Come, follow me.‘”

“President Thomas S. Monson has counseled: ‘If we are to walk with head held high, we must make our contribution to life. If we are to fulfill our destiny and return to live with our Father in Heaven, we must keep His commandments and pattern our lives after the Savior. By so doing, we will not only achieve our goal of eternal life, but we will also leave the world richer and better than it would have been had we not lived and performed our duties.‘”
