Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! - D&C 128:22.
"What a tremendous work still lies ahead of us, for I have observed that in the merry-go-round world of daily living there is a growing need for the peace and tranquility of the gospel of Jesus Christ," said Elder Jacob de Jager in his October 1978 general conference address."There is deliberate purpose for every soul to be here on the earth, and our Father in Heaven has sent His word to reveal that expressed purpose and to guide all mankind in joyously fulfilling that conscious design. . . . The gospel of Jesus Christ is on the move worldwide, and the missionary program is the inspired blueprint for progress. Therefore, let us go forward with great determination, in a spirit of love and unity."
