What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
Great news! My Mission President sent this email:
Elders of Isreal and the Honduras Comayaguela Mission:
Use your ability to spread good news throughout the world. Friday afternoon I received a phone call from “Servicios – Pres Galo”. He read me a letter just received from President Hinckley and his counselors announcing the approval of a temple in Tegucigalpa!
Wonderful news for this region of the world.
I can’t tell you how happy I was to hear this great news. Each branch/district president I call can’t believe it, but each gets so emotional, that together with me, sheds a few tears.
The Church is true!!!
[ UPDATE: The Church has issued a press release. ]
