Speaking during the October 1986 general conference, Elder Franklin D. Richards of the Seventy said: "I have witnessed the joy and satisfaction that come to those who serve in the temple.
"I recall on one occasion a sister coming through the temple door, her face bright with anticipation and her step quickened. She was a temple worker who had been back home for a visit. She grasped my hand and said, 'It's so good to be back. I love my service in the temple, and know I cannot be happy, really happy, away from it. It brings me a joy and satisfaction that is found in no other place. I feel a sense of accomplishment in doing something of eternal value. It's a little like the work of the Savior, who did for mankind what they could not do for themselves. This work brings peace to my soul yes, the peace that passeth understanding.' "
