My Family History Calling

The following is from FamilySearch.

Temple Challenge Goes Worldwide With Launch of New Webpage

"Prepare as many names for the temple as baptisms you perform in the temple." That was the challenge issued by Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles to a group of nearly 4,000 youth at the RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City in February of 2014. See what magic has happened since then and how you can assist.

It was recently revised to include a "View My Relationship" feature. If you haven't seen this amazing tool or would like to share it with someone, click here.
