    Prophet Portrait

    Heber J. Grant

    Heber J. Grant organized and presided over the first mission in Japan. He was the President of the Church when the Church started to use radio to broadcast talks. When members needed help during the Great Depression, President Grant formed the welfare program of the Church, including Deseret Industries. This organization still collects items and sells or donates them to people in need.
