Families Are Forever

We find out about transfers this next week so I guess we will see what happens. We were able to teach a guy named Lino and we are way excited for him to progress. The great thing is that he has a strong desire to change so we are excited to see what is to come.

We had a wonderful day at the temple Saturday where Elder Cooke was sealed to his family for time and all eternity. It was one of the coolest experiences in the world and I felt the spirit so strongly. I know that only through the temple can families be together forever.

I know that the temple is the House of the Lord. I now know that the temple is my goal for me and my future spouse, no doubt. I love this gospel and what my Savior Jesus Christ did for ME.

Sorry such a short email, but thanks for all of the support and love.

Con Amor,
Elder Saunders

Parents Comments:

A little more on the incredible experience of Elder Saunders companion Elder Cooke and the temple. Elder Cooke’s mom is a covert to the church and so they have never gone to the temple. They finally did a couple of months ago. Then they wanted to be sealed as a family in the temple. After a couple of conversations with President Bartlett the decision was made to have the entire family fly from Missouri to Idaho. Then on Saturday they all were able to go into the Twin Falls Temple where the Cooke Family was sealed for eternity. It was truly a special experience for Elder Saunders as his mission president, President Bartlett and his sweet wife were able to be there as well. This is the type of experience that will bring so many blessings. As parents we feel so humbled for our son to experience this.

Pictures from that special day.
