I can only imagine what the saints would have felt as they turned to look back at their beloved temple--one for which they had sacrificed so dearly to build, and now they had to leave it behind. But they knew that they had been endowed with Power from on High, so they were determined to make that journey knowing that they had received the necessary ordinances to enter the Celestial Kingdom. Many of the couples were sealed eternally in that early temple, so their children born along the trail belonged to them under the new and everlasting covenant. It wasn't until much later that children who were not born under the convenant were sealed to their parents. I still look up that beautiful temple and marvel that it's there. I get to attend a session in it tonight. WOW! Am I blessed!!!
