"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations." — Matthew 28: 18-19
"I am satisfied that there are thousands across the world who, in their loneliness and hunger for truth, are crying out for help," said President Gordon B. Hinckley (November 1976 Ensign, pp. 95-96). "And in addition to these there is another group who are members of the Church in name, but who have left, and who now in their hearts long to return, but do not know how and are too timid to try. .... To you, my brethren and sisters, who have taken your spiritual inheritance and left, and now find an emptiness in your lives, the way is open for your return. "
