But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.—Luke 24:29
Rarely I have felt it exactly as the travelers on the road to Emmaus did—as a soft but unmistakable burning in the heart. More often it is a feeling of light and quiet assurance. We have the priceless promise of the Holy Ghost as a companion, and we also have true directions on how to claim that gift.—Henry B. Eyring
This Day in Church History
1890: In preparation for the completion of the interior of the Salt Lake Temple, the First Presidency sets apart John B. Fairbanks, John Hafen, and Lorus Pratt as “art missionaries” to study in Paris, France. Later, Edwin Evans and Herman H. Haag are also sent to Paris to study.
1973: The first stake in El Salvador (San Salvador) is created with Mario Edumundo Scheel as president.
1994: The U.S. National Genealogy Society posthumously elects Archibald F. Bennett, who pioneered the acquisition of genealogical materials for the Church, to their Hall of Fame; Bennett is the first Latter-day Saint so honored.
