The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. - Isa. 9:2
"The Lord has spoken!" Elder Bernard P. Brockbank, then an Assistant to the Twelve, declared during the April 1976 general conference. "Every Latter-day Saint is to be a light unto the world and is to be a savior of men: and if they fail in this sacred, soul-saving assignment, they will be trodden under the foot of men.
"It seems reasonable and possible that one percent of the Lord's children now living on this earth would accept His way of life and join His church if they were shown His way by His Saints. . . . There are multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision waiting to see the saintly light that leads to divine perfection. Every possible missionary that is in harmony with the Holy Spirit is urgently needed. We have many that could still be called. May we that are privileged to live in the last days be valiant and let our light shine and may we be one with Jesus Christ in helping bring salvation to all mankind."
