But we are here in a school to learn, and it is for the Elders of Israel who are desirous to do the will of God, and keep His commandments, …to seek to the Lord for His guidance and direction, …and to seek to build up the Zion of God and the kingdom of God upon the earth, and if we do this, God will bless us and exalt us in time and throughout the eternities that are to come. Amen.
– John Taylor, 6/15/1884
