“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” —Matthew 24:13
“To endure means “to remain firm in a commitment to be true to the commandments of God despite temptation, opposition, and adversity.” Even those who have had powerful spiritual experiences and have given faithful service could one day go astray or fall into inactivity if they do not endure to the end.” —Claudio D. Zivic
This Day in LDS History
1903: Hundreds of Latter-day Saints gather to welcome U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt as he arrives in Salt Lake City.
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. He addresses them and invites them back into the Church; around 1200 eventually return.
1999: Ground is broken for three new temples: The Louisville Kentucky, Adelaide Australia, and Veracruz Mexico Temples.
