Elder and Sister Knight and Elder and Sister Kendrick
are senior missionary couples devoted to teaching our entire mission how to use family history as a proselyting tool.
They are tireless in their efforts.

They recently had the wonderful idea to teach each of our younger missionaries how to search his or her own family history for names they could take to our temple for ordinance work.
A couple weeks ago, our missionaries had the opportunity to perform many different saving ordinances for their own ancestors, even including sealings. It was a powerful way to have the missionaries experience for themselves the principles they are teaching to investigators, new members and less active members.
It also gave the participating missionaries an incredible insight into fulfilling their purpose of conversion on both sides of the veil.
Here are the accounts of a couple sisters who agreed to share their experiences.
You might want to ask your own missionary about his or her personal journey.
