King Benjamin Lived in…Uruguay?

Posted by BrianJ on January 7, 2013

“And even I, myself, have labored with mine own hands that I might serve you, and that ye should not be laden with taxes, and that there should nothing come upon you which was grievous to be borne—-and of all these things which I have spoken, ye yourselves are witnesses this day.” (Mosiah 2:14)

“[The president of Uruguay,] Mr. Mujica, 77, shunned the opulent Suárez y Reyes presidential mansion, with its staff of 42, remaining instead in the home where he and his wife have lived for years, on a plot of land where they grow chrysanthemums for sale in local markets.” (New York Times)

(Not sure if Benjamin would have legalized marijuana though….)

    Brian, as one who was fortunate enough to serve in Uruguay, I can say that I wouldn’t be surprised :)
