A THOUGHT FROM THE SCRIPTURES

And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.--Mark 16:15.

"There are many nations where we have not been able to get in, to get visas, or get passports," reported President Spencer W. Kimball at the priesthood session of general conference in October 1978. If we are to fulfill the responsibility given to us by the Lord on the Mount of Olives to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, then we will need to open the doors to these nations...."I'm hoping that every man and boy listening to me this night will...pray constantly...to bless the brethren who are making a special effort to reach the leaders of these nations and to convince them that we have only good for their people."
