Now this link between the fathers and their children consists of the 'sealing' of families one to the other beginning with Eternal Marriage and the children so sealed to their parents. This is a major purpose of the temple and the work done therein. As husbands and wifes and their children are sealed on back to Adam and thus to God, the whole of the human family becomes welded together by virtue of the power and priesthood of God in that Eternal Patriarchal Order of Heaven. And thus we by the ordiances of the temple may be sealed for not only time but all eternity, our individual families back and to the eternal family of God, thus joining heaven and earth and mankind thereof unto that Heavenly Father, our Eternal Father forever. The New Zealand temple is where my wife and I were so sealed, eternally married and our children, our posterity, with us.
On the 20th of December, 1969, Rosie, that is Fualosa, and I were so married and sealed for time and all eternity. Because the New Zealand law at that time did not recognize the LDS Temple Marriage as a legal marriage in the country of New Zealand, we were first civilly married in the Temple View visitor center accross the street from the front of the New Zealand Temple, then we crossed the road and entered into the Temple, and there we were again married, this time by the power and authority of God in one of His temples for time and all eternity.
