It continued for 38 years, helping tens of thousands of converts from many lands gather with their fellow Saints.

In what ways is today’s Perpetual Education Fund like Brigham Young’s Perpetual Emigrating Fund? What do these funds teach us about becoming one with one another? Read the rest of this entry »
