Preaching the gospel and family history work are the greatest duty

"Some individuals may wonder how both preaching the gospel and seeking after our dead can be simultaneously the greatest duties and responsibilities God has placed upon His children. My purpose is to suggest that these teachings highlight the unity and oneness of the latter-day work of salvation. Missionary work and family history and temple work are complementary and interrelated aspects of one great work, “that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him” (Ephesians 1:10)."

- Elder David A. Bednar, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, "Missionary, Family History, and Temple Work," Ensign, October 2014, p. 30-31
