What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.—Doctrine and Covenants 1:38
The study of Church history yields many fruits. As our understanding deepens, our own faith and commitment increase. As we develop the ability to ask good questions and find sound answers, we become spiritually self-reliant.—Keith A. Erekson
This Day in Church History
1885: President John Taylor, along with several other Church leaders, begins touring the Saints’ southern settlements. On this trip they explore sites in northern Mexico for possible settlements, leading to the establishment of several Latter-day Saint colonies.
1976: Because of the increasing numbers of missionaries, those called to foreign language missions begin reporting directly to the Language Training Mission in Provo, Utah instead of going to the Missionary Home in Salt Lake City.
