FamilySearch record: On Monday, I reported that FamilySearch hoped to hit a huge indexing goal of completing 5 million records in one day. So was the goal hit? Oh, yes. In fact, “FamilySearch Indexers Leave a Legacy in a Record-Setting Event.” I want to just tease the blog, but will hint that the number was more than double the goal. How’s that for amazing?

Brigham City: Plan to join thousands of excited Saints in Northern Utah in attending the “Brigham City Temple Open House” via this special video invitation. View with your family and friends and share it far and wide.

Full-time missionaries: Virtually travel to Europe to hear powerful stories from European Saints on “The Value of a Full-Time Mission.” One young man testifies, “Going on a mission is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” And another: “Going on a mission is what the prophet has asked us to do.” Click in to watch the entire testimony-filled video.
