I had a really neat experience finding family names and taking them to the temple. A few weeks ago, I was on FamilySearch and I was having a bit of trouble finding some names, but I really wanted to find some.
A couple of days later, we went to a family history workshop, and I found some people. I figured out I hadn’t gone back far enough. My mom took the names to the temple to get the cards.
The next time I went to the temple, I got baptized for those names. After I got baptized for each one, I could feel the spirit so strongly and knew that my ancestors were so thankful that I had found their names and was baptized for them since they weren’t baptized while they were alive. Even though I wasn’t talking to them face to face, I felt how happy and grateful they were.
