    Inside back cover: The Reapers, by Marilee Campbell, pastel, 1979. “Our gracious Father, we remember vividly the commands of thy Son to ‘Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature’ (Mark 16:15). Our Father, our efforts to fulfill this command seem small and infantile, not wholly rewarding. Give us, we pray, hearts of determination, that we, thy people, may make such sacrifices as are necessary; that our sons may live righteously through their growing years and strive for spiritual excellence to be worthy to take the gospel to the nations of the world.”—President Spencer W. Kimball (from the Washington Temple dedicatory prayer, given 19 November 1974).
