Grandma (my Mom) brought Autumn (my Niece) here from Pocatello for the week. Sunday morning we got up and prepared for church, it was Shawn's mission farewell talk.
"Why does the Mormon Church continue to send missionaries out into the world, particularly to Christian countries?" May I read the words of the First Presidency of this Church,...in which they gave answer to this question. "It is our duty, divinely imposed, to continue urgently and militantly to carry forward our missionary work. We must continue to call missionaries and send them out to preach the gospel, which was never more needed than now, which is the only remedy for the tragic ills that now afflict the world, and which alone can bring peace and brotherly love back amongst the peoples of the earth." Ezra Taft Benson --Conf. Report, April 1942, p. 91.
