“And behold, he preached the word unto your fathers, and a mighty change was also wrought in their hearts, and they humbled themselves and put their trust in the true and living God. And behold, they were faithful until the end; therefore they were saved.” – Alma 5:13
“There is a difference between receiving a testimony of truth and being truly converted. The Lord taught us that when we are truly converted to His gospel, our hearts will be turned from selfish concerns and turned toward service to lift others as they move upward to eternal life. To obtain that conversion, we can pray and work in faith to become the new creature made possible by the Atonement of Jesus Christ.” – Henry B. Eyring

1946: Five hundred former Saints, who had left the Church over a dispute regarding native leadership, spread flowers along the lane leading to the chapel in Tecako, Mexico, singing “We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet” as President George Albert Smith arrives.
