And blessed are you because you have believed; And more blessed are you because you are called of me to preach my gospel.—Doctrine and Covenants 34:4-5
This is God’s work, and God’s work will not be frustrated. But there is still much to be done before the Great Jehovah can announce that the work is done. While we praise and honor those faithful Saints who have brought us to this point of public prominence, we cannot afford, my brothers and sisters, to be comfortable or content.—M. Russell Ballard
