Name limit/ temples shredding names
I live in St. George, both temples are under construction so I have to go to Cedar City every 6 months with my young women group so it's already hard enough to be efficient. I provide the names for the entire group every time we go. Since covid shutdowns have been lifted the temple workers never return my names to me, when I ask about it they say it's protocol and that they've shredded them. So in order to get to other ordinances than baptisms and confirmations, I have to reprint every name after going to the temple, there is nothing to help me with this on the website and it's so tedious and unnecessary when they could literally have just handed me the names.
This has become even more difficult with the new 300 name limit because I have to go back and delete/unreserve previously printed names in order to print more. So, when the temple shreds your names, these other ordinances are lost perhaps forever to me because I've deleted them to create room for more. The entire temple work system is working against me and they need to quit fixing something that was NEVER broken. I'm 14, trying to figure out a way around all of these changes while providing names for my entire ward at the same time. If people are so afraid of the virus that they can't even hand me a piece of paper (saving me an hour's worth of extra work) then stay home.
Please get rid of the 300 name limit, it's truly doing more harm than good. The explanation for this is that they're trying to encourage more people to do temple work by having more for them to do (taking away from the hard-working people already doing it). I have 8 siblings, and 6 out of 9 of us have done hundreds of names worth of temple work in our family tree, and there are still hundreds more waiting for us to find. Nobody is going to run out of names any time soon, either extend the limit to something reasonable like 1000 or get rid of it altogether.
Thank you, Sara Fluegel
