Message from the Presidency August 2011

Can we make a difference to others when we follow the Savior? Does the service we perform in His name make the world a better place? Elder L. Tom Perry shares an experience he had while stationed in Nagasaki, Japan, after the end of WWII. Wanting to make a difference during time off, he and other soldiers repaired Christian churches and helped the ministers begin preaching again. When Elder Perry and his companions left Japan for home, the Japanese Christians they had served came to bid them farewell in a touching display of love and gratitude. Elder Perry testifies of the Savior and His love and Atonement for each of us, declaring that “the only lasting joy and happiness we will ever find during our mortal experience will come by following the Savior, obeying His law, and keeping His commandments.”
