Welcome to the Church Brother Rodriguez
One of the blessings of the Gospel is the principle of eternal families.
One of the purposes of our temples is to offer the blessings and ordinances our
Heavenly Father has for us, to each of his children,
even those who have passed on to the other side of the veil.
Elder Rodriguez is one of our missionaries and over a year ago his father was visiting family here in Trujillo when he passed away.
Last Friday, Elder Rodriguez was baptized for his father, what a great blessing.

Congratulations, Elder Rodriguez.
This practice of vicarious baptisms dates back to the time of Christ, Paul speaks about this in
1 Corinthians, 15:29
