March 24, 2019 - We continue to meet with members of the Massena Branch to encourage them to make progress on the Temple and Family History work.
Promised Blessing of Temple and Family History Work:
While temple and family history work has the power to bless those beyond the veil, it has an equal power to bless the living. It has a refining influence on those who are engaged in it.
You will be blessed with more closeness and joy in your family.
You will be blessed with the divine protections afforded those who are faithful in his service.

It was transfer week and sadly Sister White was transferred to the Clifton Park area to serve in the Glenville Ward which meets in the same building as our daughter Jessy's Schenectady Ward. So, Sister White will get to meet Jessy and her family.
The work of the Lord moves forward a small amount each day in Massena. Take the time to immerse yourself in Temple and Family History and reap the blessings!
