And after I, Enos, had heard these words, my faith began to be unshaken in the Lord; and I prayed unto him with many long strugglings for my brethren, the Lamanites.—Enos 1:11
If we are steadfast and do not waver in our faith, the Lord will increase our capacity to raise ourselves above the challenges of life.—Ulisses Soares
This Day in Church History
1849: A constitutional convention meets in Salt Lake City, where a constitution for the proposed state of Deseret is adopted. However, the U.S. Congress, in the famous Compromise of 1850, makes Utah a territory instead of a state, denying the Saints local home rule and leading to a nearly fifty-year struggle for statehood. 1902: The name of the Smith Academy in Rexburg, Idaho, is changed to Ricks Academy in honor of Thomas E. Ricks, founder of Rexburg.
1994: Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin dedicates a new missionary training center near the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple.
