- We were looking for a spiritual foundation for our family, and we met a senior missionary couple, the Howards. We were reunited with them when Elder Howard was old and in a wheelchair. We owe him so much.
- Many are looking but don’t know where to find the truth.
- When we are on the Lord’s errand, He will help us.
- Pray as if everything depended on the Lord, and then work as if everything depended on you.
- Be courageous, be brave.
- You are the hope of Israel and the army of Zion, but our war is a holy war for the souls of men.
