Joy—for Us and Others—Comes by Following the Savior




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.”

Special Witnesses of Christ

As we celebrate the Easter season, the testimonies of prophets and apostles called as special witnesses of the Savior, always relevant, become particularly poignant. In this series, those testimonies are presented, beginning with the First Presidency and continuing through the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Powerful individually, when presented as a group these testimonies provide an undeniable witness that the Savior lives.
