Elijah

Face to Face with Elder Rasband, Sister Oscarson, and Brother Owen, January 20, 2016
"And I know there are many of you around the world who are listening to this tonight. You may not live exactly close to a temple. But you can get the temple spirit by doing family history work. This is called the spirit of Elijah. It's a spirit that broods in us to care for our departed ancestors."
