“I want the missionaries to remember this and lay it to heart, if they will. Go and preach the gospel, and help the honest-in-heart to gather, that they may aid in building up Zion, for that was the design of the Lord when He said, through the Revelator John, ‘Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.'”

– Brigham Young, 4/14/1867
