Relief Society message: Becoming an eternal family

On the first day the newly dedicated Kiev Ukraine Temple was open for ordinance work, Aug. 30, Valdimir and Lynbov Babskov joined with their daughter and son-in-law, and two grandchildren to make their dream of becoming an eternal family a reality.

For sixteen years, Brother and Sister Babskov had been waiting for the opportunity to stand with their daughter, Olga, inside a dedicated temple and participate in the sacred sealing ordinances.

With the dedication of the Kiev Ukraine Temple on Aug. 29, Brother and Sister Babskov saw an opportunity to meet with their family and experience the joy of standing in the temple — together.

"We feel the peace of the temple," Brother Babskov said. "We've waited a long time for this moment, to come with our daughter and be sealed. We've waited 16 years. … Now we know the importance to be patient because the Lord always keeps His promises."
