“We are grateful for the increase in temple history work being completed by the faithful youth of the Church,” the First Presidency wrote in a letter to be read in sacrament meetings Sunday. “In unprecedented numbers, young women and young men throughout the world are researching, finding, and bringing family names to the temple to perform baptisms and confirmations. . . . We are confident that these changes will bless the lives of youth and children throughout the Chruch.”
